The course has great features

First time playing this course and found it to be one of the best in Durham. Course has a great lay out with difficult par 3s. Unfortunately a lot of maintenance had started on the greens with one green off altogether but this happens at every course around this time of year. Would recommend this course but anyone who is unfit to hire a buggy.

Lovely challenging course

The course was generally in immaculate condition. The highlight for me were the fantastic long Par 3’s of the 9th and 10th holes.

One disappointing area were the greens. Their was no consistency in the speed of them and this varied from hole to hole.

A rather long day stuck behind a competition but otherwise a really enjoyable course and one I would certainly play again.

Great test of golf

The greens were superb, very quick with some of the slopes the putting was a real challenge. The course has many fairways with undulations which meant an element of luck with the carry. The bunkers were fair. We throughly enjoyed our game. Give it a try you will not be disappointed

Best course I have played in a long time

This course is a good test of golf physically and mentally. From the tricky holes to the tricky hills you have to walk up and down. The whole course was in fantastic condition and the greens were fast but not too fast. If you struggle with hills and prefer the more leisurely side of golf a buggy is definitely recommended. I can't wait to play this course again.
