A very wide open course that is extremely forgiving and In my opinion it is a decent course for beginners.
However, when you finish playing the 18th it’s like you have had a day out at Alton Towers because every single fairway is lumpy and so uncomfortable.
The greens are slow, but not in too bad condition.
To be honest, the best thing about the day was getting to play in the snow for a couple of holes!
A decent starting course for my first game back after lockdown, but will not be returning as they’re are far better courses in the area for similar price.
A good test on a good course with excellent staff
I’ve played here a few times now. Liam in the shop is great (nothing too much trouble etc). The course was in good condition - the greens had recently been tined and were a bit of a challenge as a result. You get a good test on this course due to almost every fairway being quite undulating - it tests different shots.
As my flat overlooks the course I thought I'd get my clubs out for the first time in 15 years. The course seldom gets too busy and as I was playing by myself I was let through by a couple of groups, so not too much waiting around. The condition was OK and the greens ran pretty well and overall it's relatively flat. I was glad to see that most of the fairways were pretty wide and relatively unforgiving.
I've played at a lot of courses across the country over the last 40 years and this one is definitely in the decent category. A bit exposed as it's one of the highest points in Newcastle and maybe not the most picturesque but the sun shining on the undulating fairways can make it a beautiful place. I've seen some comments about the course being 'in the middle of a council estate'. There are houses on one side about 300m away across the Moor but for the more discerning you can look towards the £500K (private) luxury flats on the other side instead. As someone once said '...Just what were you expecting to see from a Torquay Hotel window? The Hanging Gardens of Babylon?' Anyway, if people are bothered about the area they could maybe play somewhere in Surrey instead.
I'll definitely be playing quite a few more rounds in future, but then it is good value for money as part of a package and I just live round the corner.
3 of us played here for the 1st time today. Course was well set out with some very challenging long holes especially for a novice like me. We teed off early and the course was still covered in ice but it thawed out. We will be back soon hopefully when the weather is better and not blowing a gale as it is quite exposed in places. All in all a good day out
Flat and boring
In the middle of a council estate, with no coverage. Just wide open and flat, but with bumpy fairways. Very poor course.
The course is very forgiving.
Had a great day at Nufc golf course would recommend this for anyone that is new or just returning from lock down . We will be returning thanks for a great day.
Glad I'm not a member.
Although some leeway has to be given for winter and the general weather, the course was just not up to scratch.
The temporary tee boxes were just put anywhere, most not even flat for set up. Most greens were in play which was a bonus, however the temporary greens were as bad as the tee boxes. One literally set up on what could only be described as a hill peak with ridges on the 13th.
Glad I only paid £11 to pay but even then I think I have been overcharged. Membership fee is clearly based on the club name rather than the quality of the course as even in the summer I can't see how you could charge this for the layout and holes.
Staff great, course in good condition considering time of year. Clubhouse closed due to pandemic. Locker room facilities available. Great value. Will visit again my third visit
Good condition considering the weather of late
Only a handful of winter greens, all winter tees, not great but at this time of year its to be expected- if you are a first time player definitely take a card for the map on the back as it can be difficult to navigate from hole to hole. Great experience would definitely play again!
Considering the weather - still excellent condition
For the value you can’t really complain, but even if I could, I wouldn’t. The greens are in good condition, the fairways too and the winter tees aren’t dissimilar positions from the normal tees and aren’t artificial mats so it’s a thumbs up from me.
As with golf everywhere, speed of play can be an issue but that’s golfer rather than course dependent.
Great value for the money - and a nice course!
A generally flat course, but with many strangely undulating fairways which resembled waves on the sea frozen in time!
A good mix of short and long holes - with 2 of the par 5's way over 500 yards.
Considering it was late October, the course was in reasonable condition, except the bunkers had no decent sand in them - but not much they could do about that.
As I live in Sussex, I couldn't believe the price - much better value than anything in my area!
I would 100% recommend playing at this course and I would love to give it another go in the summer.
Fantastic value for money. Cracking course, played it a few times and always been fantastic condition. My first round in a couple of years.
Easy check in. No complaints.
