After opening for play in May 2011, the Colt Course was quickly voted as one of the top 100 golf courses in England. Set in the spectacular Northumberland countryside, close to Hadrian’s Wall, the course's rectangular tees, bunkers forms and variety of par 3’s are resemblant of a Harry Colt masterpiece. In fact, architect Scott Macpherson spent 18 months researching Colt’s world famous designs, including Wentworth, Sunningdale and St Georges Hill, to create a similarly magnificent layout that doffs the hat to its inspiration.
Sitting on the North bank of the River Tyne in North East England, the city of Newcastle is linked to Gateshead, on the South bank, by 7 iconic bridges. The renowned Geordie spirit is infectious, and is paired with an array of vibrant bars, pubs and clubs, to make Newcastle one of the UK’s most popular nightlife destinations - a fantastic location for your British Masters golf break.
The Quayside, situated on the banks of the river, is one of the liveliest spots in the city. From traditional hand-made pies and ale at Redhouse, to some of the regions most admired fine dining restaurants such as House of Tides, a never-ending list of fantastic eateries can be found to suit every taste and budget.
The heart of the city is packed with individual bars and pubs. For cocktails we recommend Jalou, a late-night bar with an unbelievable selection of unique beverages. Alternatively, check out The Gin Bar or Pleased to Meet You for Newcastle’s finest gin-based concoctions, craft beer and wines. Meanwhile, Tup Tup Palace, House of Smith and Digital are just a few of many expansive clubs that have helped Newcastle earn the status it deserves.
