Gosforth Golf Club, often known as the Bridlepath, is set in 90 acres just three miles north of Newcastle upon Tyne city centre. This is an ideal setting for a high class golf course within the city limits.
First opened in 1906, Gosforth Golf Club has evolved into a course that is a pleasure to play for golfers of all abilities. The 2006 Centenary celebrations included hosting the Northumberland County Championship and the English Boys under 14s Championship. Members and visitors alike are afforded a warm welcome in the form of a traditional clubhouse, and catering facilities.
Gosforth Golf Club is a course of immense character. One of the major features of the course providing a test on many of the holes, is the Ouse Burn, which winds its way down the 18th and through the 4th on its way to the Tyne.
A steady mix of tough par 4s, testing par 5s and gentle par 3s ensure the course is an enjoyable test for golfers of all abilities.
A major programme carried out in recent years has seen the introduction of over 7000 trees, which not only provide a scene pleasing to the eye, but also increase the difficulty of many holes.
