Hazlehead Golf Club
Hazlehead offers three picturesque courses.
The MacKenzie Championship Course is arguably one of the best layouts in the North East. It was designed by Dr Alister MacKenzie, the golf architect better known for designing Augusta National in America. The Course provides a true test of golf skills with gorse and woodland being a hazard for any wayward shots.
The Pines Course, originally a nine-hole course, gained an extension in the early 1970's which was designed by Ryder Cup players Hugget, Coles and Dyer. It has a more open aspect than MacKenzie and its beautiful setting is perhaps more suitable for higher handicap players.
The Nine Hole Course has wide fairways and a marked absence of trees, making it the perfect starting point for the enthusiastic beginner. The best known hole on this course is the Sahara, the only desert with grass which is a massive 503 yards, par 5.
