Set west of Newcastle in 1,000 acres of stunning Northumberland forest and moorland, De Vere Slaley Hall boasts not one but two par-72 championship golf courses.
Only 30 minutes drive from the city centre, yet tucked away in beautiful countryside, the resort offers guests luxurious surroundings and spectacular views – perfect for a peaceful break in the country.
The Hunting Course, designed by renowned architect and ex-European Tour and Ryder Cup player Dave Thomas, was opened in 1990.
This was one of my first golf course commissions and I was rewarded with some stunning light on the first morning. Unfortunately the heavens opened after that. I shot this using an entry-level Canon EOS 550D and would like to return with my improved equipment and post-production skills.
