What the club says: South Moor Golf Course was designed by Dr. Alister MacKenzie, one of only two MacKenzie designed courses in the region. Durham's only true heathland course and one of only 40 or so in the UK. At 6,273 yards from the back tees, the course is hardly long by today's standards but with a premium on accuracy it would be foolish to try to overpower the course with the driver, particularly with out of bounds a factor on eleven holes.

My first time here and I?ll be back. It?s very hilly. I found the fairways to Be ok generally. The greens were well maintained but difficult to read. The hospitality and friendliness of the staff was lovely. They couldn?t have done more to make our day enjoyable. Thank you.

Durham. it has held many County compititions plus the UNDER 16 English & under 14 championships. it was desined by Alister Macensey the very same person who desined Augusta

This is my local course and is great. Not every par 4 hole is a driver, that's what makes it exciting. Plenty of blind tees, dog legs a few par 3's for interest. The course is split between Oakland and heathland. Give it a go, you will like it, I'm sure

Great and challenging course, thats in great condition , few blind holes.
A course where the driver isn't always necessary from the tee box , which makes you think about your shot more. Could do with a few more distance markers but overall great.
Staff friendly and good pro shop.

Lovely course, lovely bacon sandwiches. The pro shop is well stocked with a nice pro working in there. A very enjoyable course, long steep course, seem to recall a lot of hills, you will need an electric trolley.
