Highly Recommended 2019

What the club says: Hunting
The Hunting is a truly great course and it's no surprise that it holds European Tour events on an annual basis - it was also England's entry to stage the 2010 Ryder Cup. The challenging par 4, 9th is an awesome hole, with a carry over water through a narrow avenue of towering trees and dense rhododendrons. With the abundant foliage along the fairways, you'll see why this course is one of the most colourful in the British Isles.

Priestman
The Priestman is a slightly newer course and is generally thought to be of equal standard. It was superbly designed by PGA Chairman Neil Coles and weaves its way across 280 acres of the Western side of this

September golf break

What a wonderful venue to stay and play at the accommodation was excellent. The golf courses were in excellent condition although the rough was absolutely brutal ,even a foot off the fairway. More due me being a novice golfer and the course above my standard .Even though the courses had me struggling I would recommend this venue for a good golf break.

Always great to play

The Priestman is usually the easiest of the two courses to play but not at the moment. Course in great condition although 9 holes had been spiked. Tough to play at the moment due to the punishing rough go in it and ball is lost so keep it on the fairway if possible. Facilities second to none.

Always great to play

The best of the two courses at Slaley Hall. In great conditions, green true not too quick. Bunkers needed some attention after recent heavy rain. Always a pleasure to play, good test of golf

Brilliant, must visit

Both courses at Slaley are well prepared and a challenge for all standards of golfer. You have to plot your way around the Hunting course, Priestman is long, but again you have many challenges. You have got to try both.

Superb Golf Course

Played both courses and whilst Priestman was perfectly ok, but slightly tired from overplay, the Hunting Course was a huge step up in quality and layout. Beautiful setting. Very testing but quite wide fairways on most holes, so most enjoyable.

Punishing Rough.

Played Both Courses at Slaley Hall. I have to say the Hunting course is stunning and a good challenge. The other course. Priestman I think it is called, whilst a good layout , the rough on that course is in my opinion far too brutal for a resort type golf destination. Almost always led to a lost ball or almost impossible shot out. That spoils a round of golf and as I say, in my opinion unnecessary.

beautiful course far away from any noise pollution whatsoever. the fairways are in such good condition as were the greens .both courses Priestman and Hunting were is as good a condition I have ever seen .our only problem was the length of the round having a 2.12 Tee off time we though it would be easy to make our dinner time at 8.00 in the evening we actually walked off the 18th green at 7.35 mainly due to societies taking to long to look for golf balls in front .

It?s a must visit

It starts with a warm welcome in the pro shop. Courses wonderfully set up. Priestman is a challenge for all ranges of golfer. Green excellent , fairways friendly, stay out of the rough. Just when you think you got it cracked, they throw the 16th at you. Par 5 up hill, when i say hill i mean hill.
Unfortunately due to current regulations did try the 19, but rumour has it its very good.
If you are a serious golfer you have to give Slaley?s two courses a go.

Could be so good

Played Slaley over the past 20 years and in my opinion it has gone down hill, hotel is still great but the courses haven't really matured in the way they should have greens and fairways have got wetter and on my last visit the fairways were almost unplayable.

Played here yesterday (Priestman). Challenging but very enjoyable for high handicappers like my playing partner and myself (37 under new rules). Greens were in great condition and pretty fast but some of the fairways were a bit boggy.
We both liked the challenge and will be back again soon.
Watch out for the drink prices in the bar. Over £5 for a pint!!

Golf Weekender

Done a weekender here, 19th, 20th October, 2 courses in a 4 ball. Had a great time, Hunting course is very tough, priestman is a lot easier. Greens were in great condition for October. Rooms were really good as well. Food was tasty. Only downside to it all was price of drinks. But overall give this place a go.

Amazing courses, lovely food, decent rooms

We played both courses as a Society of 10 players, loved them both but the Hunting is the one to play if given the choice, the 18th is beautiful ! Golf services were all great, hotel services need some work sorting out problems we had. Food was great and we will return.
