Great Greens

It rained from start to finish when we played our round, but that didn’t dampen our spirits. Even soaking wet, the greens ran true and fast, a delight to putt on. Unfortunately, the tee boxes especially and some of the fairways let the course down slightly, they just required a bit more attention and some tee boxes were of semi rough length. Enjoyed the course all the same, however would recommend eating elsewhere as we paid well over the odds for a bacon sandwich as we hadn’t ate beforehand!

Challenging and enjoyable course

Hadn’t played the course for over 6 years so forgotten all the holes. It’s a great layout, every hole offers a different challenge. The greens were the best I’ve seen this year, réceptive but running very true, if you manage to pick the lines.
Overall great value and excellent course. Very friendly and helpful pro shop with great range of new and second hand clubs and equipment.

Top course

I hadn’t played South Moor for a number of years.
Received a warm welcome in the pro shop.
The course has an excellent variety of challenging holes with many offering elevated tees. Greens were fantastic and overall course condition first class.
Super value for money. Will definitely not leave it as long to play again.

Magnificent course

One of the very best courses in the North East of England in absolutely magnificent condition. It is quite tragic that this Alastair McKenzie course is so little known and so unheralded. If it was situated in a more affluent location it would command top-end green fees. It is a truly classic moorland McKenzie masterpiece!

First but not the last

First time here abs what a lovely course.
