What the club says: Founded in 1894 on land owned by the Church, the parkland course has retained much of its original character whilst being updated to keep up with the demand in the course.

Most Helpful Review

Great course and well designed. Bit confusing when crossing over fairways from tee boxes (only 2 holes) but lived the signature hole.

Nicely set out course
Greens had just been treated and were really sandy so that affected the round a little but aside from that it’s a cracking little course, nice, mature and set with a touch of difficulty

municipal course at best
On par with most municipal golf courses.average in every aspect.members are brain washed and highly rate the course if only they went and played somewhere else they would realise it is an average course.5 mins down the road you have Brancepeth castle golf club which is exceptional and probably the best course in County Durham.

The worst course I have ever played,the only thing that is missing on the greens is a volcano and windmill because it is like playing crazy golf on a big scale.the members are delusional about it been a great course,I think it would make a better car park for kinryn than a dog track.

David Walker, W. Auckland rated 3 out of 5 - Jun 21 2016

Greens were far too slow. New 2nd green is far too high so difficult to hold with anything longer than a 7 iron in hand - badly designed. Fairways were great and the course itself is a really good challenge - just the greens letting it down. Had a lovely meal, bar staff were great however there was too much swearing coming from the snooker room. Staff apologised however nothing was done to control them - they thought they had to be served before non members!

Poor course, loads of temporary greens in play, not good for this time of year. Mats in play instead of tees and it's April. Members are not too happy from what i heard in the clubhouse. Played snooker, really good table although too much swearing in the room and not acted on by the manager

Played 2 weeks ago, course in excellent condition, service from pro was first class, 2 green fees and buggy only £50.

Meal in in clubhouse very reasonable and excellent quality (Local Hand Carved Ham), when back in area would certainly pay again
