Do NOT Play This Course On A Saturday!

I'm not a member of Ryton, but have played it maybe 20 times in the last 4 years, always on weekdays. I know pace of play slows down on weekends due to the sheer volume of golfers on the course, but this was a really poor experience. A round of golf around a 5800 yard course took 5 HOURS! Really unenjoyable, and no one seemed in any rush whatsoever, despite being in 4-balls and clearly having people waiting on every tee box for them. Really hard to enjoy and a real shame.

The course has a good variety of holes

The greens were fast running and true. The fairway were also in good condition. Excellent value for money. We will definitely return.

Imaculate greens

Ryton is a very good course,not too difficult but still can catch you out if you wander from the fairways towards the trees,a great test for any golfer,im thinking of joining soon

Great shape, quite congested

The individual holes are beautiful and the course is in great shape, however there’s several holes where you tee off over a green and a couple spots where 3 holes seem to be hitting into/over/through each other. Just a little crowded in spots. Other than that, lovely track and friendly staff.

Slow

Stuck behind a few four balls. Took 2.5 hours for 8 holes, walked off after 8.

No member off staff anywhere in sight to show me the way to first tee, had to ask members.

Not long but not easy

An excellent little course tucked away on the bank of the Tyne…. With a drivable par 4 1st and 3rd you may be tricked into thinking this is an easy course, big tougher times await. Keep it straight to get a low score around here, greens we’re excellent too

Very slow at Ryton

Picturesque Tyne Valley location and general facilities are very good + the course was in good condition and should have been a pleasure to play. However, our group and the group behind us were stood waiting on every hole for an extremely slow 3 ball that took over 4 hours to complete the course and spoiled our round [it should take no more than circa 3 hours for a round at Ryton]. The club needs to consider putting a marshal out on the course every now and again to ensure that this sort of thing doesn’t happen. Rating would have been 5 stars if the pace of play had been more realistic.
