Very well set up with difficult holes and fast greens.
If one complaint it would be hole signs to next hole

Lovely course! But rude arrogant pro

Great course for a great price layout was fantastic and all in good condition but as for the guy in the shop, what arrogant rude person. Everything felt an issue to ask! Avoid the shop

Branspeth castle

Fabulous scenery, many varied holes through some fantastic landscapes.
Lovely slick greens.
Very testing course that does need some good tee shots.
It is a long/ testing walk if you are anything other than fit and the club only has 9 buggies on offer so plan ahead in that score.

Tough par 3’s at Brancepeth

Course in good pre-summer condition – greens slightly inconsistent but will doubtless improve shortly when the better weather arrives. The course is challenging and fun to play but not one for beginners or those trying to get back into the game after a long lay-off. The course includes a quite steep ravine running across some holes – there are a couple of 200 yard par 3’s which are especially tough if you aren’t 100% accurate off the tee – if you come up short or miss the green it knocks the wind out of your sails and can easily result in one or two dropped shots and associated penalties. In most instances the yellow amateur tees are almost the same yardage as the white medal tees which adds an additional challenge for the casual player.

Do not play on a Sunday ( too slow)

Do not play on a Sunday took us 4 and half hours in a 2 ball, stood waiting to play every single shot, no one lets you play through. It’s a real shame as it’s a lovely course but for £40 the pace of play is embarrassing, at one point had 3 different groups waiting to play a par 3

Very good course

Helpful pro.
Both of us struggled mainly with so many bunkers on the course,was in good nick although greens had just been sanded.Excellent par 3s.A lot of scenic walks over bridges above ravines.Course was probably playing tough as still March.
Last few holes the rain got us.Bar staff and members friendly enjoyed after game drinks which we needed!
Very good course recommended.
