Fantastic course partly designed by Alistair McKenzie

Course in excellent condition. Certainly a course you need to think your way round and definitely has a bit of character about it.

Could be good

Holes a bit on top if each other . If a bit if money was spent in greens and fairways could be good. Greens were terrible.

Hilly!

Some of the views were exceptional, the holes were varied but the course is very up and down. I loved this but we did get caught up behind a very, very slow 3-ball competition...

So many signature holes

Have played all of the more fancied courses in the North East over the last 2-3 years and this one must be in the top 3 or 4. It's refreshing to play a quirky course that's over 100 years old with so many different challenges but which also throws in the odd short forgiving hole

Very nice course, well maintained. Each hole a different challenge, mix of short and long holes. Tight course so rewards accuracy. Lots of greens in upside down bowl shapes and lots of brakes in the greens so a test for the short game. Will definitely be back

Course in great condition. Greens are fast with some tricky borrows. Fairways are like carpets. A really good test of golf. Fantastic views of the Angel of the North and surrounding area. Green fee offers fantastic value. Made to feel really welcome by staff and members after our round.

Played this course a few times in recent months and it's in fantastic condition. Fairways are like carpets and the greens are a proper test of golf; true rolling with subtle borrows. Par 3's are a proper challenge (especially 5th!). Clubhouse is great too - good food and a warm welcome from staff and members who really make you feel at home.

The greens staff have done a great job after a long and hard winter for such a lot of us. Fairways are well manicured and in fantastic condition. Greens the same giving all players a good and fair test of their game.
Members and staff are friendly and helpful. Great bar and catering facilities with views from the balcony across the valley and The Angel of the North.
Definitely worth a visit.
