An ideal venue of quality and choice, with three wonderful courses you never feel rushed.

Dawson Course

Lakes Course

Old Course

Dawson Course Information
The Dawson Course is a more relaxing round of golf but can still give a bite if you're not on your game. Wider fairways and large greens are more forgiving but can make for the 3 putt!! Lakes and water features in abundance again.
Course playable from 01 April to 31 October each year.

Lakes Course information
The Lakes Course is a true test of accuracy. Tight fairways and an abundance of water make it a test for even the best golfers. A thoughtful progression around the course is required. The par 3, 6th and the par 4, 17th are truly stunning holes. Course playable 01 April to 31 October.

Old Course information
Longhirst Hall Golf Course was opened in June 1997.
This layout now plays as The Old Course, a par 73 off the Yellow Tees and measuring 6398 yards, with full spec winter greens if required. It has been skilfully modelled to provide some of the most stunning holes in the country. On the fascinating 17th, for example, you drive downhill past two lakes before aiming for a narrow green flanked by a pond on either side. Course playable from 01 November to 31 March each year.


Club House

The clubhouse was officially opened in July 2006, by England cricket star and Longhirst member Steve Harmison, and has proved to be very popular with our members and visitors alike.

Garrick Biography

Sport has always played a major role in my life. At an early age, I became a member of Bamburgh Castle Golf Club, Northumberland and it has been my home club ever since.

I grew up in Morpeth, where I played both rugby and golf to county level. But at the age of 16 I represented England in golf and from there on in, golf has been the sport for me.

I also played golf for England Under 18s and this was when the University of Tennessee offered me a golf scholarship. My four years at the University of Tennessee have really developed me as a person and a golfer. The system and support they have for coaching, psychology, fitness and nutrition have really helped me develop my all round golf game in preparation for turning professional. I have travelled and played golf all across America and had the privilege to represent Tennessee in three NCAA Division 1 finals. It has been extremely hard work, but very rewarding.

Garrick's Artwork of him surveying a putt

At university, I was also able to follow my other passion – art. I majored in Studio Art where my main focus was portraits and landscapes. I especially enjoy designing images from golf and other sports. I have been fortunate to exhibit my work at the University of Tennessee Golf Club. I have also produced work for commissions along with graphics for the University.

In amateur golf I have been fortunate enough to have played for England Men’s team in the Home Internationals. It will be something I will always remember especially in 2011 as I was undefeated and England regained the trophy. I was also selected for the England Elite Men’s Squad and the Great Britain and Ireland (GB&I) Squad. This culminated in representing GB&I against America in the Walker Cup (2013), against Europe in the St Andrews Trophy (2012) and representing England in the World Team Championships (2012) for the Eisenhower Trophy.

2013 turned out to be an outstanding final year as an amateur. My ‘hot’ streak started in May with a runner’s up finish in the Welsh Amateur at Royal Porthcawl. This was closely followed a week later by my first major victory in the Scottish Amateur at Southerness. However, this was all surpassed by my victory in the British Amateur Championship at Royal Cinque Ports where I defeated Toni Hakula (Finland) 6&5 in the final. The first Englishman to win in ten years meant I played in The Open Championship at Muirfield and then The Masters in 2014. I signed with International Sports Management and turned professional immediately following my last amateur event at The Masters.

My first season as a professional saw me visit numerous countries across Europe and the Far East. The highlights included winning my first professional event at The Astbury, Shropshire on the Europro Tour. Whilst on the European Tour I had my first top 10 finish at the Real Czech Masters in Prague. I graduated from Q School having reached the final stage, which meant I earned a Challenge Tour status for 2015.

I have now established ‘Team Porteous’ to take me to the next level in professional golf. This includes Graham Walker (coach), Nick Grantham (strength and conditioning Coach), Darren Wigg (physiotherapist), Phil Kenyon (putting coach), Mark Bull (biomechanist), Adrian Rietveld (Taylor Made) and Joe Whitney (psychologist). This coupled with the role of my management company, International Sports Management and sponsors, will ensure that I have the best support and help develop my game to compete at the highest level.

There are exciting times ahead. I have always found throughout my career so far that every shot counts and there is always someone better than you are, so it is just about doing that little bit more every day.
