Close House – Newcastle, UK

Click here to see a Golf Management Europe article on the Colt CourseOPENED May 10th, 2011 TMGD proudly announces the opening of its first UK project the full service practice facilities and brand new 18 hole golf course. The course has received high praise from its full membership, visitors and Owners:

Graham Wylie (Course Owner); " The course looks absolutely stunning and every single golfer, without exception, has said how wonderful it is and that the views are exceptional. Most of that is down to your own design, imagination and flair and I am very grateful for all the effort you put into making the course so special. Many thanks again for a brilliant golf course."

Lee Westwood; "I thought they have made a good job of working with what they have got and producing a natural looking sort of old fashioned course. The lay-out is good, and the greens run true and it's a good balance in that it could be made to be more difficult but it's a great members club course. You have to think all the time and not just blast it. I enjoyed playing it. Top-notch facilities."

Tim Taylor, 'The Journal': "If Scott Macpherson is not the 21st century's re-incarnation of Harry Colt, then I don't know who is. A drop dead gorgeous course and you can see from the way Macpherson has subtly set his jewel into the breathtaking countryside alongside Hardian's Wall, that he is a student of Colt's gentle way of doing things."

Graham Bailey (Sky Sports UK) recently visited the TMGD designed Close House course development in Newcastle. Included in his glowing report was the statement: "'The Colt' potentially one of the finest courses that will ever be built in our lifetime anywhere in Britain".
