What the club says: This par 72 6,688 yard course is considered to be among one of the best in the area and having hosted the Northern PGA tournament, its credentials speak for themselves. A mature setting sees the course meander through some awkwardly positioned trees, not to mention numerous water hazards making it an enjoyable and challenging round for all levels of golfer.

Lovely Course
One of my favourite courses in County Durham. Some great holes, with some serious water hazards. Strategic golf, not just a driver off the tee. Definitely worth playing, and a great clubhouse.

Played on a blowy but sunny Friday at 2pm. Course was empty and great value for £17. Didn't use the facilities hence why just good. This course is the closest we have to a championship course without paying silly money. A real test with multiple tricky and demanding holes! A hard and testing round. Highly recommended.

Sunny but windy day. Good course but greens needed cutting as they were too soft, grass too long and greens slow.

Nice course layout with some great holes that i found to my liking.
Quite forgiving with wide fairways so will suit all level of golfers.
Downside being the course was wet in places and one hole closed but all in all i enjoyed it and would like to try it in summer as I'm certain it will play much better as most courses do.

Course was in great condition and can see where improvements have been made. Greens were a little on the slow side, but still ran true.

After being re-opened after a 8 month closure all the necessary works are being done to make it a fantastic course. Drainage works are continuing to improve the water that once lay. Greens and Fairways have undergone treatments. Taking into account the closure and on-going works it would be fitting to say this course will take off at a high standard in good time. The prices reflect that of the location, well worth the money.

Not sure what to make of this course. Following its closure, the greens and some fairways were nothing short of a disgrace and £22 to play on greens little better than your local pitch and putt stuck in the throat slightly. Having said that, the course meandered through attractive woodland with some strategically placed streams and ponds in front of greens.

I left Woodham feeling I would like to take it on again, but only when the greens are back to a playable condition. My ratings are based on the current course conditions.

ecoman/ durham rated 2 out of 5 - Sep 6 2014

Wow, what a disappointment. As a former member, I've played here many, many times in the past and to see the course in this condition is heartbreaking. Woodham is a great layout with wide fairways and hardly any holes touching any other so great for slicers and hookers.
The course is in really poor condition though and doesn't merit the £27 weekend green fees, in fact £10 is a bit rich for the playing experience. The greens lack any form or consistency and even the fairways are rough. OK, so its been closed a year and the green-keepers are making some progress, but reviews are only as helpful as the honesty of the reviewer.
I personally won't be rushing to rejoin any time soon and can't say the drainage improvements have made much if any difference and we're only at the beginning of September. This is a course that can be closed for 25% of the year due to water logging and wet weather and it's a big ask to drain a course built on clay.
Sadly, I won't be back.
