about the course

On course for greatness

Experience gold standard facilities, a purpose built club house, a pro-shop, driving range and more. Raise your game on this enjoyable and challenging course, and, after a great round on the greens, grab a refreshing round back at the Keeper’s Lodge.
In a wonderful location, Matfen is close to Hadrian’s Wall and only fifteen miles from Newcastle International airport and twenty miles from Newcastle upon Tyne’s City Centre. It’s also a regular venue for professional and amateur events and tournaments.


The picturesque and fast flowing River Pont comes into play at several holes including the 14th, one of many strong par fours. The dog-legged 16th is the pick of the par fives, but Matfen’s signature hole is surely the long par three 17th with its narrow green sited teasingly just over the river.



  • Sympathetically laid out on a classic parkland landscape.
  • 27 holes, 6700 yard course incorporates challenging water features and unique obstacles.
  • High quality nine hole par three course is ideal for the less experienced player.
  • Purpose built clubhouse, “Keepers Lodge” makes an excellent and welcoming ’19th Hole’.
  • Variety of day and residential packages available.
  • A beautiful location and facilities second to none.
