Close House, the luxury Northumberland-based stay-and-play golf destination, is celebrating its most successful year to date off the back of substantial off- and on-course investment.
Boasting the world’s first and only Lee Westwood golf courses, Close House successfully hosted this year’s PGA Seniors Championship, as well as the EuroPro Tour’s Tree Of Life Championship in August.
There has never been a better time to experience golf at Close House, with recent investment in both the Filly and Colt courses at Close House being highlighted by the latter’s inclusion in Golf Monthly’s list of Top-100 GB&I Courses for the first time.
Off course investment has been highlighted by the substantial refurbishment of the contemporary No19 clubhouse, while the golf shop also underwent a comprehensive refit.
The opening of the new nine hole Yearling course, in addition to the Academy and Driving Range gaining PGA status, highlights the venue’s continued dedication to offer the very best in golf tuition, practice facilities and custom fitting.
Close House owner, Graham Wylie, commented, “These past 12 months have been incredible for us here at Close House. We’ve invested heavily in every aspect of the venue, with the quality of these improvements highlighted by the prestige of the major events we’ve held this year.
“With 16 luxurious bedrooms and some of the finest golf facilities in England, we now feel that we’re able to compete with the very best in terms of GB&I stay-and-play retreats,” continued Wylie.
Ideally situated on the outskirts of Newcastle upon Tyne, the 400 acre Close House estate is easily accessible via the A1 and combines fine food, luxury accommodation and picturesque scenery to provide every visitor with an unforgettable golfing experience.
