Lovely day despite the conditions
Love this course. Staff are fantastic and welcoming, members are nice and chatty. Had been heavy rain for a couple of days resulting in a couple of additional water features and course was quite heavy. Despite that a great day, greens in fantastic condition, fairways were grand. Have played this course before and will definitely play it again. Love it.
The Dawson course was beautifully maintained and provided a good test for our group which ranged from 2hcp to 25hcp. Friendly atmosphere in the clubhouse and well priced. Good practice area also.
Prudhoe Golf Club Seniors Away Day
Some 40 golfers played at the Dawson Course. We had a package of coffee, bacon sarnie, 30 practice balls, a round of golf and a 2 course meal for £33.00, excellent value.
From Billy the assistant golf manager down to the catering staff the whole day was well managed. The course was in good condition and with temps in the mid 20s the weather also played its part.
Our past captain was so impressed he is taking his away day back there in 2024.
Thankyou to everyone at Longhirst, you did us proud
We took 42 senior golfers to play the Longhirst Dawson course with a bacon sandwich and coffee to start, 18 holes on the Dawson and finished with a 2 course meal.
The organisation from the staff at Longhirst from booking the day to the day itself was fantastic. The course was on superb condition. (Hats off to the green keepers). Special thanks to Billy the assistant director of golf and to Pam and her staff for the wonderful food.
I would highly recommend playing at Longhirst.
Surprised by how good the course was.
Had heard poor reviews. Played in club match on 31st August and was so impressed that went back next day with partner and family. Will go back again for sure.
Great course very well set out
Quite testing as lots of well placed hazards
Only negative was the greens were quite slow and could of done with a cut but think that's just down to all the rain we've had
Definitely play here again
Can't Understand Other Negative Reviews
Course was in fantastic condition with greens rolling true. Friendly vibe in clubhouse and venue has great practice facilities if youre the sort who likes to warm up on the range or chipping green etc. They have two championship golf courses and yet only charge £18 for a guest. Unbeatable in the area in my opinion.
Good course but needs some maintenance
Good course with some interesting holes / some generic holes - will be easy for the long hitters but not so easy for us mere mortals - well worth a visit with some good scenery and wildlife on show in the wetlands around the park. Rating would have been 5 stars but for some very slow play over the first 9 holes that frustrated our group and the group behind us. Also the tee boxes and aprons / greens weren't in great condition - some of the aprons need re-seeding to sort out bare patches (a temporary ban on buggies might help restore some of the grass) and the greens need some attention to get rid of pock marks and worm casts which made putting a bit of a lottery. Distance pegs that appear to have been buried in small pits on some of the tee boxes are odd and are a nuisance in some instances.
Ruined by overcrowding.
Our game was ruined by there being far too many players on the course. From the 3rd tee onwards we waited on every tee. From the 9th hole there were 2 groups waiting on the tees. We were caught up by a 4 ball who seemed to enjoy hitting balls at us. 8 minutes tee times is ridiculous on a course that busy. We walked off from the 16th tee.
The course itself is good with wide fairways but if you do go into the rough it's long and you probably won't find your ball. There is plenty of ball collecting lakes as well. The online cost of £18 is very attractive and if you don't mind taking forever to play your round then go for it. Personally it's not for us.
Hi u277826520, I am a member at this club and ive got to say your review is somewhat unfair it makes no sense to rate a course 1 star due to slowplay you probably just got unlucky with the particular day and time on which you played - Usually things are nice and relaxed out on course.
Course in great condition even though we've had quite a lot of rain.
Quite a challenging course and even though fairways are wide took a bit of getting to grips with.
Staff very friendly and efficient.Easy book in and instructions given.
Clubhouse very nice and bar staff friendly.
Very Nice Course
We found the course in very good condition considering the recent wet weather. The layout is good with a few hazards but not as much water as The Lakes course. Longhirst Hall is in a great location with two fantastic courses with plenty of interest and challenge for any golfer
Very highly recommended
Longhirst has to be one of the best clubs I’ve played at so far. I’ve played The Dawson Course here several times now and I’m already planning a return visit and potential membership based on my recent experiences here. A must for anyone in the local area
Bar the wind, conditions were very good . Fairways and greens in great condition.
Great value and our 4 ball had plenty of time on each hole. We all enjoyed the round.
Great value . Great course . Challenging the further into the course you get. Staff excellent & friendly. Will be back.
