Good day all round!

First time at this course - and the first since lockdown ended - so the clubhouse was still closed - understandably.
Nevertheless we scored for good weather and despite the recent rain the course was in excellent condition - albeit (again understandably) with some temp greens.
Very challenging course at times and very hilly - but this added to the enjoyment with decisions to be made on almost every hole to get the best of the conditions and lies.
Thoroughly enjoyed this course and will certainly be going back.

Shame about the greens

Found Whickham to be a lovely course but feel the 26 pounds fee that golf now charged us wasn't in line with the conditions of the course since the greens had recently been dug up and where covered in sand causing putting to be less enjoyable. This was our only issue.

Simply Brilliant

From the welcome at the door by the friendly clubhouse staff to the magnificent course, this was all together a brilliant experience. The Club had gone to great lengths to make you feel comfortable , the food was great and eaten in a safe environment. Some fantastic holes on a tough course, fairways were well covered and the greens fantastic. Will definitely play again soon.

Great course, challenging but fun!

First time on the course and really enjoyed it! A lot of hills but it added to the challenge on the holes. Narrow fairways at times but well thought out!

Got a good offer on 4 balls,?the sunny day and the course was in very good conditions. The greens were running very true, made some long putts. A very enjoyable day, everyone were impressed, we have played before a few years back but certainly will come back again

Very enjoyable

I'd only played Whickham once before today and that was over 25 years ago so I couldn't remember much of the course especially as we started the round at the 10th due to an event thay day. Really impressive and challenging course. Fairways and greens were in great condition with just a bit of give due to rain through the week. Good positioning is essential if you want to hit a decent score. Some lovely holes. Very impressed overall and I'll make I won't let another 25 years pass before I make a return !!

Lovely parkland course

Needed to play a course two thirds of the way to Rothbury weekend away that we could book online around 1 to 2pm and found Wickham on GolfNow. Three of us thoroughly enjoyed our round although unfairly lost a great drive that was blind! At £13 it was a bargain and we recommenced the deal to friends who played a month later. Just off the motorway and nice bar area.

Great course

Booked this course for location mainly as travelling North and wanted a round near A1 2/3rds to Thropton. Great price and perfect tee time. Pace of play excellent and course in great condition. Shot one over my handicap so was happy. Will return if passing.
