Golf in Durham

If you’re a keen golfer then make the most of your trip to Durham by heading to one of the top golf courses in and around the city.

With its magnificent views overlooking the River Browney, Durham City Golf Club [map] is one of England’s oldest inland clubs having been inaugurated in December 1887. Since that time the club has had three homes within Durham, moving to its third and current course, at Littleburn in November 1974. The course is a delightful 18-hole, 6321-yard, par-71 meadowland course just off the A690 two miles south west of the city centre.

Perhaps one of County Durham’s most well known courses is at the Ramside Hotel and Golf Club [map] on the outskirts of the city centre. This course comprises of three loops of nine holes – The Princes, Bishops and Cathedral courses – each with its own individual features, but all blend with each other, and allow different 'Courses of the Day'. It is a fair course with fourteen lakes and some maliciously placed bunkers, which will long remain in the memory and make you want to come back for more.

Heading out of Durham city there are plenty more good golf courses to visit including Barnard Castle Golf Club [map], a par 73, 18-hole venue in a picturesque spot high above the River Tees. There are plenty of natural water hazards to catch you out with streams and a pond coming into play no fewer than 15 times during your round.

Situated in the small scenic town of Stanley, Beamish Park Golf Club [map] has an 18-hole course that always provides a warm welcome to members, guests and visitors alike, while Birtley Golf Club [map] near Chester-le-Street is a nine-hole parkland course with a 5660 yards, par 67 layout.

Finally the Cocken Lodge Golf Club [map] is located about five miles from Durham. It is a nine-hole short course built to USG”A” specifications that boasts 14 sand bunkers and two water hazards.
