What the club says: Ramside Hall Hotel and Golf Club opened in 1996 and its Prince Bishops' Course is now established as one of the best golf courses in North East England.

The par 72 course measures 6,851 yards from its championship tees and has views of world famous Durham Cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the inspiration for Ramside’s second course – The Cathedral Course opened in September 2014. The Prince Bishops course is named after the warrior clergymen who ruled over the lawless North from Durham Castle after the Norman Conquest in the 11th Century.

Let down by Hospitality & Friendliness of Team

Both courses are in fantastic condition, with the greens in particular a real standout.

Customer Service post round left a lot to be desired though. Waited 45 minutes for some chips, and then a further 25 minutes for my bill at the end!

Pace of play wasn't great, and appeared that poor planning was the main cause.

Ramside course review

A once good hotel course is now in an awful condition. Bunkers full of weeds and soggy slow greens are a few of the problems you will encounter.

Nice course, could of been better conditions but late september so alright considering. Extremely poor pace of play stuck behind 2 four balls so ended with a 5 hour round. All in all quite decent. Recommend getting a buggy.

Nice course with great scenery

Played Ramside's Cathedral course as part of Sunday driver. This is the newest of the 2 courses, Was quite a wind blowing so found it tough in parts as is quite exposed. Course itself in good condition, still maturing in places, as potential to be a great course when a few trees have grown a bit more. So great looking holes especially the downhill par 3s. Greens in very good condition. Quite a walk from some greens to next tee and a bit lacking of signage, the couple in front of us missed out 3 holes by not seeing the correct signs, even though there is a map on the back of the scorecard! Will return some time if only to try and improve my scoring here.

Nice course, worth playing

Enjoyed playing the Ramside's Bishops course for first time. Great practice facilities, nice clubhouse, friendly welcome in pro shop.. Course in great condition, lush fairways, true greens. Some nice looking holes. Pace of play ok but we were a 2 ball following quite a few 4 balls. Well worth staying here on one of their deals, we were on a Sunday driver, great value for money as hotel is great.

Poor, cathedral course

Don't both, poor nick, greens hard to read, slow fast turn or not.
Get a sherpa or a buggy, you'll be mountain climbing.
Some hols are in different post codes to the other so Sat nav recommended.
We thought it was odd that the course was empty, until we'd played about half the course. play the other course prince bishop, thats much better

Fantastic Course In County Durham

This was first visit to Ramside Hall but i will definitely be back. The course was very tough due to the conditions but still in great condition especially the greens. The facilities are also top class. Enjoyed it so much i am considering taking up membership here.
