What the club says: Brancepeth Castle Golf Club was designed by the world famous architect Harry Colt in 1924 and laid out on what was Brancepeth Castle Deer Park, the stables and coach house being converted into the clubhouse. Brancepeth is a beautiful parkland course of 6400 yards SSS 70 offering a great variation of holes. The deep ravine cutting through the course, provides some challenging tee shots.

The most miserable club I've ever visited
We played here in the Mixed Open. There was no information for visitors and the pro could hardly be bothered to look up to check us in. In the morgue of a clubhouse we had to search for staff to get cups so we could get coffee and then there was no starter on the course to give us any information like local rules, yardages etc. We were made to feel like a nuisance which they only wanted for the money we had paid. The course was not in good condition either with huge divots all over the place and the grass scalped in places. Would not visit again even if it was free!

Lovely course generally however when i played the fairways were not in play so every shot was played from the semi rough. Also the greens here are normally excellent however they were poor today. Albeit it was early march.

Brancepeth Castle really does offer exceptional value for money. The greens are excellent and the fairways are lush almost all year round. Holes 9 and 10 are both par 3s and really are two brilliant holes, with just as good views. The staff were also very friendly during my visit and the food and drink was spot on. A definite must play.
