Golf Days

We currently run 2 annual Newcastle University golf tournaments where our aim is to raise additional money to support our talented students on our Elite Athletes Squad. All money raised will be used to award a number of sports scholarships to Newcastle University students who have achieved excellence in their chosen sports.

Our golf tournaments take place at Close House Golf Club near Heddon on the Wall. The estate which has recently undergone a major upgrade is in excellent condition and has proved a tough test for all competitors in our previous tournaments.

The format of our tournaments vary from event to event but all tournaments include a bacon roll and refreshments upon arrival and a hot meal after your round. There are also prizes for the top 3 teams in the Team Competition as well as prizes for nearest the pin and longest drive.
