What the club says: The meadowland course at Hobson Golf Club tests all aspects of your game and requires a full range of shots from the golfer. Whilst measuring a large 6403 yards from the tee on the first to the pin on the last and lying higher above sea level than other courses in the area, it is quite a flat course and therefore quite forgiving on the legs.

Neil F, Durham rated 5 out of 5 - Jul 19 2016
This course offers incredible value golf. I have played all over the North East and come across supposed "Top 100" courses whose greens are a pale shadow of what I was surprised but delighted to find at the Hobson.
It's a testing lay-out, which challenges you strategically (if you think "driver" on every par 4 and par 5, you'll trip up here) while not being too penal.
I was also surprised by how up and down it is - you get no sense of its contours from the main road running alongside a couple of the holes..it's genuinely scenic at times.
Throw in an ultra-friendly reception in pro shop, clubhouse and bar, and it's impossible to fault at barely a tenner a round.

Gavin M rated 5 out of 5 - Jul 6 2016
Very challenging course for a par 70. Bunkers in good places and tough par 3's with raised greens surrounded by sand and water. Some par 4's with ditches that are drivable so need to pick your clubs correctly. If you hit straight you can go for a competitive score but if you go right or left you can be in serious trouble.

Nice course with a decent mixture of challenges. The clubhouse has seen better days and could do with a makeover, but overall a nice friendly course that I would play again.

Good parkland course, well maintained. Nice mixture of holes with semi rough to give you a challenge if you stray off the fairways.

Played on a Sunday afternoon for a tenner. Well worth it. A lot of fairways quite open, good for a beginner. A good course all round and excellent value for £10.

For playing in November the course was in great condition and the greens were really well maintained.
Had a pre match coffee and the staff were very friendly as was the guy in the pro shop.
And to have no complaints for £10 a round means we will certainly be back!

Richard C rated 3 out of 5 - May 28 2014
Greens in excellent condition. Good variety of holes - long and short Par3's, some challenging driving holes but also some with plenty of 'bail out' room. Long 18th uphill requires concentration at the end of the round when you're tired. Ground will be heavy after rain but greens seem to dry quickly. (Round played: May 2014 - Score: 92 Handicap: 21)

John B rated 4 out of 5 - Aug 9 2012
A very enjoyable course. Not pretentious, a down to earth club with no particular wow factor but something different or interesting on most holes. The fairways are wide enough to give you a chance and if you get in to trouble you know it's been your fault and not a problem with the design of the course. The way the different par holes are set out is unusual and a refreshing change. The course was in good condition with some very good greens. Only downside was the streams are an issue on a couple too many holes. it's good to need some course management on some holes but this becomes a bit tiresome after a while. The staff in the clubhouse were really friendly. The car park is very small which caused a few problems. We paid £20 for 28 holes of golf, dinner and tea; remarkable value on a beautiful day. (Round played: Aug 2012 - Score: 85 Handicap: 20.9)
