Played at Slaley Hall this weekend on the Sunday driver package - Sunday / Monday 2nd & 3rd September. Bed, breakfast and evening meal + 2 rounds on the better Hunting Course - £109 per person. We have previously played the Hunting one day and the Priestman the other, but we felt in previous years that the Hunting course is both a better layout and looked after better by the green staff. It cost us an extra £10 to play the Hunting twice over the normal £99 cost.

Considering how much rain we have had, the course was in good condition although the greens were a bit bobbly compared to previous years and some of them had been microtined. Bunkers were a bit poor - several days of rain had probably hardened them, but it would have only have taken a good raking by the greenkeepers to sort them out. The Hunting course is fairly long and well tree lined in places and there are many holes that require a well placed tee shot rather than just long distance.

The inclusive three course meal was excellent and there was enough choice for everyone. The service was excellent - endless supply of bread and table water - little things that make a difference. Breakfast was fantastic - all the usual cold foods and english breakfast choices + cooked to order specials such as Eggs Benedict, Kippers, Boiled Eggs, Smoked Haddock all included in the price.

I have read of people complaining about bar prices at Slaley, but normal Stella was £4 a pint, which I don't think is too bad for a hotel of Slaley's standard.

Overall, a great value weekend of golf and no complaints from any of our party of 10. Will return again.

Excellent course all round, only reason i marked it as good was due to the horrendous weather water logging the course for many weeks running up to when we played our round, would love to return when weather improves and would recommend to any golfer with an 18 or less handicap. wonderful place to have a weekend golf trip.

Played the Priestman course with the GTour.

Beautiful golf course with stunning scenery.

The greens were very good and the best of the De Vere courses I have played.

It was extremely windy on the day with rather ruined it from a scoring point of view.

Like to play both courses on a calmer day!

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.
