In 1927 two business men founded Ponteland Golf Club. They bought just enough land to build a 9 hole course which served the local community for 4 years. In 1931 more land was bought and another 9 holes added to create a full 18 hole course. At that time, the Club house was just a wooden hut. In 1937 a permanent Club house was built which today still stands proudly overlooking the final hole and 1st tee. 

This stunning 18 hole parklands course sits in the heart of the North East with excellent facilities, affordable membership and arguably the best greens in the area. Measuring 6611 yards from the Members’ tees, offers easy walking as well as a fair and memorable challenge to players of all abilities. This is one of the most rewarding  courses to play on whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned pro. There is something for everyone!
