Yearling joins Colt and Filly at Close House

Close House has added a nine-hole pitch and putt style course to the venue. The new short course will sit alongside the two 18-hole layouts at the venue, which are the world’s only Lee Westwood golf courses.

The new Yearling course will provide those with time constraints a quicker way to experience golf at Close House. The par 27 layout offers a transition between the academy and the 18-hole courses, with shorter holes taking away the pressure and intimidation of a full length course for juniors and beginners.

The Yearling, which will only be available to members, guests and residents, will feature hand-cut greens maintained to the same standard as both the Colt and Filly courses, along with a variety of challenging holes ranging from 35 to 70 yards.

Close House owner Graham Wylie commented, “The addition of the Yearling course will prove a real asset to us here, and will be an environment in which those new to the game can learn the rules and etiquette of golf. It will present an enjoyable way for juniors to experience every element of the game, whilst more accomplished players will find it a great way to fine tune their wedge game.” More at:
