Full Course Review

Close House is home to the Lee Westwood Colt Course, Filly Course and 9 hole Yearling Par 3 course. Located near Newcastle-upon-Tyne, the 250-year-old estate lies between Hadrian's Wall and the River Tyne.

Scott MacPherson began designing Close House in 2007 and describes the style as Old English. The routing makes the most of the sites natural features and hallmarks. For example, the Ancient Forest to the left of the first hole, the old Roman fort on the 11th, the lake on the 15th and the HaHa Wall and Ice-Lake on the 18th.
