De Vere offers unique package at Slaley Hall

8.44am 11th July 2008 - Travel

Slaley Hall is offering golfers an exclusive package that offers a day ticket for the final round of the De Vere Collection PGA Seniors Championship (Sunday 24th August) before following in the footsteps of Ryder Cup hero Sam Torrance by playing the course under championship conditions the following day (Monday 25th August).

At a cost of £199 per person, the package also includes dinner in the exquisitely designed restaurant and accommodation at the luxurious Northumberland resort on the Sunday night. The package can be reserved by calling Slaley Hall on 01434 673350.

After seeing the professionals do battle for the record prize fund of £300,000 throughout the final day’s play of the tournament, golfers will then experience for themselves the Dave Thomas designed Hunting Course. It will be the closest opportunity many golfers will have to playing in a professional environment, as the course will be in peak condition and the grandstands from the tournament will still be in place.

The par 72 Hunting Course is a real treasure that is magnificently maintained, featuring rolling moorland, streams and lakes, towering trees and banks of rhododendrons. Well placed bunkers and tricky greens make this USGA standard course a real challenge.

Slaley Hall also boasts the Priestman Course on the west side of the estate, designed by Neil Coles, which offers stunning panoramic views of the Tyne Valley. Further information about the golf facilities on offer at the resort can be found by logging onto or by calling the Pro Shop on 01434 673350.
