About the Course Dr. Alistair MacKenzie has designed a course that winds between gorse, heather and bracken in a superb moorland layout. The large, slopey greens are a typical MacKenzie trait, guaranteeing that even when hit in regulation, the player will have to work hard with his putter to match par, harder still to make birdie.

This course is one of the most demanding in the County Of Durham. Rated alongside Slaley Hall, Brancepeth Castle and Seaton Carew. Although the yardage appears to be low at just over 6200 yards do not be deceived. The first seven holes of this course must be where the golfer should aim to pick his score up, as the remaining eleven are very tight, the fairways are at their widest 20 yards and each are edged with both heather and gorse. The greens are extremely hard to read for the golfer playing them for the first time. The members also have difficulty even after years of playing them. The best time to play this course is late July through September, the greens are fast and at their best during this period. I would recommend this course to anyone wishing to play golf, for the single handicapper give it maximum concentration, for the mid to high, take plenty of balls out with you. The clubhouse has been renovated over the last three years and boasts an excellent new pro shop, a snooker room and a very good taste in cuisine.

Course Description Parkland and moorland layout that is always in good condition year round. Mackenzie design. Signature hole is the 15th where you must avoid the ditch off the tee and with the approach shot clear two well placed bunkers guarding an undulating green.
