When is the best time to Golf in North East England?
The fact is, Northern England is known for being cold and wet. That being said, summer can be warm, despite what you might hear. July through August is warmest, but the courses can be crowded. For less crowds but a higher chance of a jacket and maybe rain, a visit in the Spring can be highly rewarding.
