What the club says: The picturesque and fast flowing River Pont comes into play at several holes including the 14th, one of many strong par fours. The dog-legged 16th is the pick of the par fives, but Matfen's signature hole is surely the long par three 17th with its narrow green sited teasingly just over the river. Matfen's high quality nine hole par three course is ideal for the less experienced player. Other golfing facilities on site include a driving range, short game practice area and two practice putting greens.

Exceptional in every way

The course is in a condition that I honestly believe you will struggle to replicate on even the very best courses in the UK. Not notch facilities and made to feel exceptionally welcome. An absolute must.

Played the original 18 today and the course was looking stunning. Fairways and greens packed with grass and greens rolled very true. Enjoyed a lovely takeaway bacon sandwich before the round and a beer in the sun after which topped off the day. Definitely worth a visit.

Looking great after lockdown

Visited Matfen Hall G.C. (My home club) for first time since courses re-opened. Greens and fairways were looking great. Greens pretty much pitch mark free. Some tee boxes have been changed to allow for repair/ recovery. Rough has been cut to present more of a challenge in places. Shop open and you can order tea/coffee and snacks from the lodge. Great to be back

Must visit

Just had a good round and the dewlaw course was the first time I played it and it was fantastic. Course was in excellent condition and is well maintained. Also the staff are very friendly and polite and make you feel very welcome.

June outing in Northumberland

I'm bias as it's my ?home? course but can't speak highly enough. A 27 hole course that's both wide open and challenging. Peaceful, quiet, rolling countryside on a well maintained course. Can't think of a better place to enjoy hours of my thoughts and how to crack this game called golf. A pint and bite to eat afterwards was equally peaceful in the Keepers lodge.

Variety in a great setting

Love this course. With 27 holes it gives you the option of playing 3 different 18?s, obviously you play each nine twice but it in a different order each time it somehow feels different. Great value for money.

Keep going back

Since playing here back in October we keep returning for the silver deal. £25 for coffee and bacon roll, 18 holes on a good and challenging course and then a great one course meal. The staff are always helpful and friendly. As we are not members anywhere because we like to play different courses, we are struggling to find a better deal and course anywhere in the NE. Surprised how quiet it is but hey, suits us!!!
