HIGHLY RATED - 100% would play again or recommend

What the club says: Set in beautiful rolling countryside and boasting panoramic sea views, Sharpley Golf course is an absolute pleasure to play - it is challenging Par 71 and has many unusual water features and established greens. The course has been designed with input from three top architects and shaped using an experienced team, over a number years and therefore has an established feel with greens built to USGA standards. The Head Greenkeeper Richard Hood boasts over 25 years of experince and is committed to Sharpley. An extensive drainage network built into the course boasts the newest technology, meaning whatever the weather, the course will be in the condition golfers expect, day to day, season to season.

A superb course with excellent greens, many of them 3 or 4 tiers. Many of the fairways are an excellent shape and, added with the views over the sea, make this course a favourite of mine in the region. (Round played: Jun 2014 - Score: 74 Handicap: 10.8)

Played on 13/04/14. Very strong winds. A very good course in fact very hard! the greens are like the masters, very friendly staff well worth a visit. older players may want to consider a buggy as some of the holes are on the steep side. The 18th has probably ruined quite a few score cards!

I was up visiting friends and family in the North, I had heard about Sharply Golf Course but had not had the opportunity to play there before. It is a fantastic course, with wonderful Sea views over the North East coast. We had a mixed 4 of different abilities. The green's where great as they catered for all standards. Challenging, but confidence giving too! :-) The club house is warm and friendly with Excellent staff service. I would definitely recommend and will visit again next time I'm North.

Great course with lovely views and excellent greens. Fairways are always kept tidy and the ground keepers and club house staff are always friendly and welcoming. Definitely one of my favourite courses.

Very Very poor customer service!!!
I had a 4 ball booked for bank holiday Monday as a friend was making his yearly visit to Durham from his home in Cambridge. When he visits we usually play at my local course which is Mt Oswalds in Durham and over the years this has become a customary thing. I have recently played Sharperly & liked it so suggested that we change venues and play there instead. I booked the T off time weeks in advance with no problem and 24 hours before we were due to play I rang up again to confirm and also to check that the course had a set of left handed clubs for hire for our visiting friend. I was told that this was no problem and the clubs would be waiting for us upon our arrival.
We duly arrived the next day and on going to the club house we were told that the staff had "lost" the hire clubs and could not find them. The two members of staff were full of apologies & we waited while they tried to find the clubs. Some time later there were still no clubs. By this time we were concerned that our T time would be completely lost and our friend was growing increasingly frustrated.
To cut a long story short, the clubs could not be found, our friend ended up having to leave the course without playing and the three of us T'd off 15 minutes late.
We had been looking forward to playing as a 4 ball & this left us bitterly disappointed. The most forgiving word I can give the course is Amateurish. If there was any problem with the hire clubs, they had my number, they should have contacted me, then we would have had time to try & book elsewhere.
To exacerbate matters further, when I returned home I emailed the course to inform them of my dissatisfaction, I did receive a reply but it was very non descript and really seemed like they weren't particularly bothered. I am yet to receive a reply from my further email, I think this says it all..

This is a young course which has some real interesting holes & features. Because of this shocking customer service however I shall not be returning, nor shall I be recommending it to any of my associates.

Played Sharpley 16/7/13 , disagree with some comments about it not being a good summer course,facilities are improving all the time,great fairways,greens kept immaculate,some tricky greens,watch out on the 8th it could wreck your card.Can become busy at times ,due to glorious weather at moment. nearest pin comps 5th & 16th short holes, good bunker placement for all but big hitters.In competion with some good more established,mature courses in close proximity eg Houghton etc.

Fantastic course. Played Sharpley on a number of occasions from it opening and it gets better every time. Played last night and the course was in amazing condition. Even though I did not shoot my best score it was the most enjoyable round of golf I have had thanks to the course. Greens were quick and running true, fairways and tee box were immaculate, they have done an excellent job. Some reviews have stated that this is not a good summer course but I totally disagree. Can not wait to get up for my next round.
