Golf groups seeking thrills off the course as well as on it are being invited to head to Slaley Hall and explore the wide array of activities available at the award-winning Hexham venue – the UK’s number one resort for golf and outdoor pursuits.
Set in 1,000 acres of Northumberland moorland and forest and boasting two 18-hole championship courses, Slaley Hall has long been rated among the UK’s top locations for a golf break.
But the leading resort, part of QHotels, the UK’s largest golf resort operator, is also the ideal location for individuals, groups and corporate guests to enjoy a vast range of other outdoor pursuits in Slaley Hall’s exclusive ‘adult playground’.
From adrenalin-fuelled activities such as quad biking, 4×4 off-road driving and hovercraft driving to kayaking, army assault course and paintballing, the venue has something to suit all thrill-seekers looking for a challenge away from the fairways.
Alongside this, and thanks to its partnership with All Out Adventures, Slaley Hall has plenty of choice for those people keen to combine a golf break with a more relaxed option; such as clay pigeon shooting, archery, falconry and gorge walking, or simply relaxing using the on-site spa.
Golfers can enjoy exceptional value on golf and adventure breaks at Slaley Hall throughout the remainder of 2016, with one-night packages available from just £129 per person.
As well as featuring 36 holes of golf, the breaks include one adventure activity*, breakfast and a three-course dinner. Discounts of up to 20 per cent on all drinks purchases are also available with one person staying free on bookings of 12 people or more.
One of 10 QHotels golf resorts and the flagship golf venue in the group, Slaley Hall was named best golf resort in the north of England at the 2016 Today’s Golfer Travel Awards and, having celebrated its 25th anniversary last year, is looking forward to further success under the guidance of new general manager Christopher Wayne-Wills.
Its two championship courses – the Hunting and the Priestman – have played host to no fewer than 18 European Tour and European Senior Tour events, with the likes of Colin Montgomerie, Lee Westwood and Retief Goosen among the list of winners.
Often dubbed ‘The Augusta of the North’, the 7,000-yard, par-72 Hunting, which was designed by Dave Thomas, offers lush sweeping fairways, streams, lakes, towering trees and banks of rhododendrons. Complementing its sister course is the Priestman, which opened in 1999 and sits on the west side of the estate, with panoramic views of the Tyne Valley and some daunting water features for players to negotiate if they are to score well.
Named AA Hotel Group of the Year in 2014/15, the multi-award-winning four-star QHotels golf group offers tournament and championship-standard courses in a range of unique resort locations across England and Scotland.
