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.

Beautiful course

Fantastic course - great condition despite the hot weather over the summer. Greens in great condition and the par 3s are out of this world.

Tough Par 3s

Pleasant members club with an interesting layout and some seriously challenging par 3s. Along with most courses just now the fairways were parched dry and very firm. Greens however were very well watered, soft and true. Overall a well maintained course.
A well established parkland layout with most fairways being based on old fashioned fields. This means they are broad and ‘wave’ up and down, leading to some interesting bounces and stances. You can even end up feeling a bit sea-sick! There’s a decent variety in length and shape which keeps thing interesting. It’s the par 3s that are the really challenging part though. They’re all tough with very little margin for error.. the 10th in particular is a beast, much harder than the 9th (hardest 9th in world golf).
All in a pleasant, well maintained and interesting course.

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.

Golfshake Team ReviewBrancepeth 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.

Played August 2014 and really enjoyed our game so came back again this year. The course is very scenic and in excellent condition. The greens were reasonably fast, receptive and lovely to play. We've played several courses when visiting the Durham area and rate this the most enjoyable. Good food, very friendly and excellent value for money. We'll definitely be back.
