Highly Recommended 2018

What the club says: The Lakes - The wonderful par 72 Championship Course was opened in 1997 and plays to 6,572 yards from the championship tees. Set within 180 acres of Northumberland countryside the course design is based around an 'American Style' ethos, with plenty of water to catch anyone not hitting straight from the tee. The famous Longhirst wildlife inhabit the many lakes that frame the fairways, so you can share surroundings with plenty of ducks, geese and swans whilst you search for the birdies! If you're looking for a little piece of Florida on this side of the pond look no further than Longhirst Hall Golf Club. This is a hidden gem!

The Dawson Course - offers a different challenge to The Lakes at Longhirst. Measuring 6,713 yards from the white tees, it is actually longer but the holes have been modelled to create wider fairways and large greens to contrast with the more demanding Lakes Course.

The addition of the state of the art driving range, a visit here is a must, particularly for visting parties and societies.

Both courses have hosted The PGA Europro tour, with the event returning to The Lakes course in July 2017.

long time member and both courses continue to improve.
Even simple additions like ball lifters in the whole for covud are well thought out.

lack of indicators for pin position continue to be an issue and app is rarely updated

Challenging course in great condition

Played the Dawson recently as part of a society day and the course was in great condition.

From a friendly welcome in the clubhouse where great care has been taken with social distancing measures to great organisation out on the course it was a cracking day out. There is a fantastic practice facility which many of our group took advantage off prior to teeing off.

With a stiff wind on the day the already challenging course played tough but fair. Greens were receptive and rolled true, rough is punishing and watch out for the water (of which there is still a fair bit).

Today I played the lakes course at Longhirst. Now considering the club like many others has had to continue maintenance through Covid and combat the unusual long periods of dry weather, the course was immaculate and in superb condition. The fairways were lush and green and the greens were quick and true. I highly recommend this golf course to anyone looking for a round, it’s excellent value and a real hidden gem

Exceptional

Wow. Exceptional course in absolutely top condition. Fairways well kept and greens like a snooker table. Will be back to try the Dawson. We'll worth the 2 plus hours trip from Scotland.

Visited Longhirst today, both courses seemed to be busy. We played the Dawson and I can easily say it was the best conditioned course I have played in a long time, greens were true, receptive and a perfect pace. If I lived closer I’d join in a heartbeat

Fantastic courses.

Played the Lakes Course today. A testing and narrow course. Take plenty of balls as the course name is a bit of a give away for the amount of water around it. Narrow fairways and small greens are a serious test on the front 9 but opens up slightly on the back 9. Beautifully kept and the greens are immaculate, all set in the idilic Northumberland countryside. Will certainly be back, many times.

Lovely and Uncrowded

Have played here a few times as local to us, able to book on the day and be there in 20mins. The greens are very fast and the grass green and luscious. Played the Lakes this time and the added joy is always the wildlife. A little wet underfoot and some flooding though we have had some heavy rain.
