Great course.

Really enjoyable round on a very interesting and well kept course. Only slight negative was an incredibly slow fourball in front of us (a pair) slowing us down and not letting us play through. Not the course’s fault though. Will definitely be back

Excellent Course - A hidden gem

I played at Durham City GC with my son. We were greeted warmly into the club shop. We would have liked to have had some lunch before the round but sadly they didn't not have this as an option on Monday's. (The only reason for a good rating). However, a recommendation to a local cafe was perfect. We then went on to have a great round on a lovely, well kept course. We had a drink in the bar afterwards, which was great with superb views of the course. Would definitely play here again.

Fantastic experience

I hadn't played here in about 15 years and I'd always thought of it as a good course. I was wrong, it's outstanding. The layout is such that even though I drove the ball well there are several holes where unless you are on the correct side of the fairway some of the greens, never mind the flags, are hard to get at. The whole course was in great nick and I can't see how the greens could be any better even so early in the season. About the greens. There is not one where you have a straightforward putt, often with more than one break. As for the 2nd, it's almost (for me completely) unplayable. I putted off the green.....twice. Fun though.
An all round great experience and we'll be returning again this year. Thanks to all involved in presenting such a great club and course.

Superb course but took some finding as Sat Nov sent us on least distance, but was really convoluted!.

Fantastic course, well laid out and immaculate large greens, but not easy to read and Masters fast

Very poor set up around course

When you play this course it is so hard to navigate to the next hole due to no post or sign pointing you to the next hole , once you think you are on the correct hole and check the course map on the tee box all the numbers have been taped up again making it so confusing if you are on the correct tee box .
After so many holes you realise that you score card from the club does not match up due tee box has been removed this was not discussed to us when signing in at the golf shop.
For £50 a round very poor set up and I have emailed the course and all I have getting is an apology.
I’ve herd loads a good information on this course and yes the greens are nice but with the issue they have chipping area you can not use , the driving / iron nets poor quality and rumble all around and the other things what we found at this course I would not recommend this

Nice challenge

Some challenging blind holes and some long par 5’s. it’s a tough walk and quite hilly and therefore a bit slow, though we had no one in front or behind us. It was early spring so there were some mats in use. The hole layouts were well designed and the greens were in great shape.
Would love to return in summer when the trees are full and green.

Magnificent

Played for the first time on 18.10.21. The layout is magnificent from the very first hole. The greens were as good as any I’ve played on this year, even at this time of year (and I’ve played on quality courses like Silloth, Carlisle, Goswick, Roxburghe). The course was so good that I phoned the club the next day to ask about joining next year, even though I live north of the Tyne. I was playing with my dad who said it was the best course he had ever played. Can’t say much more than that really.

Pleasantly surprised

First time on this course and I have to say I couldn’t fault it. Very nice course and the greens were in top top condition for the time of year. In fact, possibly the best greens I’ve played all year. Well worth a visit!!

Exceptional

Greens quick and true, fairways well looked after, staff in the bar very welcoming. Though the wind kept our scores up, that was the most pleasant round of golf you could hope for in October. Added a 4th to our booking last minute and the proshop matched the GolfNow price.

Will be back soon and seriously considering membership there next year.
