Unreal course but very challenging. Best I have played in Teesside and Darlington area, closely followed by Eaglescliffe then Middlesbrough Golf Club.

Much improved at Dinsdale

The course has recently been purchased by new owners who have committed significant investment into the course and facilities. Some work is still in progress but the general condition of the course and the associated facilities is very good and definitely the best that I have seen / played recently. When all the work is complete this golf course will probably knock some of the so-called "championship" courses in the area into a cocked hat. Club house and bar facilities are very good and the club has a proper sized car park and practice area. If the club keeps the green fees reasonable we will definitely be back!

Changed for the better

Played this course a number of years ago but there’s clearly expenditure taking place with a number of changes on the course having taken place and still taking place. Green’s were very smooth and ran true. Will be back. Didn’t use the new driving range but restaurant after was also good!

Steady Away

Friendly quiet well maintained. Nice little pro shop and decent amenities including bar and restaurant. Greens we’re on lovely condition for time of year and just about ready for a cut. Fairways were difficult las lots of mud following hollowing. Good thought from green keepers to protect fairways and cordon off areas. Overall nice but course gets very up md down bland and little variation in elevation.

The course was in great condition for the time of year, the greens were true, other than a couple of holes were crowned.
Teeing up off mats was only to be expected.
Overall a very enjoyable round of golf, we'll be back in a couple of weeks. Thanks Dinny....

Greens immaculate

Course well sign posted so easy to find your way round, only downside was loads of leaves but for this time of year pretty much the norm.
A word of warning don’t leave anything laying about in the changing rooms as not everyone is honest. Left my trolley in there because I didn’t have winter wheels on, hired one from club shop & on returning it found mine had been taken. To top it off on checking cctv it had been taken by a club member.
The lady in the shop was brilliant & within half an hour had been in touch with the member & had it returned, so a big thanks to you……

A great morning’s golf

The course was quiet, and in amazing condition for the time of year. The club pro was really helpful and friendly. The bar/restaurant area is excellent, the service was brilliant and the food was lovely.

Good parkland course with interesting features

Enjoyable uncluttered round in sunshine and moderate breeze. Course in reasonable condition except the greens had just been tined and sanded for which we were offered a voucher for a complementary round in the autumn. Very welcoming staff.
