George Washington Hotel and Golf Club

Tyne and Wear

  • Par 73
  • 6625 Yds

Set in 350 acres of beautiful countryside, the George Washington Golf Club offers a championship challenge on the outskirts of Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

The par-73 layout measures 6,625 yards from the back tees and features five par-5s. The majority of the holes feature tree-lined fairways, and a series of ditches and ponds are scattered throughout the layout to up the difficulty level.

Your round here begins with a tight dog-leg par-5 which is short in length at 488 yards. If you can keep the ball to the left side of the fairway to open the angle, better players will have every chance of reaching the green in two.

Your next assignment is the long par-3 second, which measures over 200 yards and features a tricky two-tiered green.

Once you are through the opening holes, water comes into play and is an ever-present until you reach the turn. A small pond and a stream guard the green at the 5th, with further water hazards cutting the 6th and 7th fairways.

Tight par-5s and long par-3s are a theme throughout, with the sharp dog-leg 11th providing a tricky examination and the par-3 13th requiring a high-qualtity tee shot of 194 yards to clear the bunkers and hit the green.

The par-4 closing hole again brings water into play from the tee and has a green which slopes back towards two bunkers which guard the front.

Away from the main, course seven par-3 academy holes and a 20-bay floodlit driving range add to the comprehensive facilities.

The newly-built £3 million clubhouse offers a lounge bar, golf shop, locker and changing facilities plus a spacious function room ideal for private dining and a balcony overlooking the 1st and 10th tees.

The course is attached to the Mercure George Washington Hotel and with easy access to the A1, A19 and within six miles of both Newcastle and Sunderland it is easy to see why it is such a hit with societies.

The newly-built £3 million clubhouse offers a lounge bar, golf shop, locker and changing facilities plus a spacious function room ideal for private dining and a balcony overlooking the 1st and 10th tees.

A delicious range of freshly prepared snacks and bistro dishes are served up throughout the day and free wireless is available throughout.
