The award-winning country house hotel, Headlam Hall, is to be the base for a range of Golf Coaching Breaks and Holidays this year.

Headlam Golf Course, which lies adjacent to the hotel and spa, is a superb USGA specification 9-hole course set over mature rolling pasture land, with an abundance of natural features. There is also a 10-bay covered driving range, a chipping area and practice putting green.
