This is the best course in the North East! Fantastic challenge with a good array of different holes. All the par 3's are tough but the best I've seen. Could play here every week.

This is a lovely course, quite short, but in the most fantastic condition. I've played many far more expensive courses both in the UK and in Europe. Never have I played a course with such perfect greens. Superb, thank you greenkeepers!

Tough

I'm quite a fit 72 year old but some of the climbing on this course very tough also paths going down hill once your trolly gets going very dangerous, the course apart from the walking very good condition and pleasing to the eye ,one downer could not get a sandwich until after 10am ,would not rush back ,nicer courses and more pleasant walking near by .

Best course in the north of England

I come back to play this fantastic course every year. The layout is excellent with 8 ravines to drive over. The short par four 14th is s great risk reward hole. Greens are pure.

Beautiful

A very nice course which requires accuracy and on some hole requires a long carry which can be a challenge for some of us!

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.

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.
