Perfect weather

Interesting course - 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.

Hills

Good course to play enjoyable, hard to know where to go as on course signs not the best, and unfortunately the club shop didn't have anything to help you, pro friendly. May play again as a few holes would like to play again to do better Plenty of water needed as it is a hillside walk

Amazing Course to play in Winter

This course is a real treat to play. It rarely closes in winter which is why I was there. Other in the area limited play. This course has ravines, which make it intimidating but satisfying when you succeed. Greens were a delight for winter. Good value. It had rained a bit but the course was very playable.

The jewel of County Durham

Me and my friend play brancepeth regularly and absolutely love it every single time! It just has a special feel to the course and every hole unique in its own way! Talk about value for money 15 quid a round and it's the best course around County Durham by a country mile and that's coming from someone who has play at least 20 different courses in the region this year alone including highly rated clubs like rockckiffe,ramside,seaton Carew and Cleveland.The greens are so good..very quick and you never seem to have a straight forward putt which is definitely a good thing in my opinion makes for a strong test! Every single part including tee boxes and fairways are always in great condition. We have played here i would say maybe 15 times this year and hopefully try and get in another couple before winter. I would join tomorrow if the membership fees weren't so high that would be literally the only negative point I make! Outstanding

Fantastic course

A great course with lots of variety. Super greens. Seemed like 5 par 3s. Four of those par 3s were pretty intimidating and the other was over 200 yards to the centre of the green so no pushover. Some of the par 4s had deep valleys too and on or two blind shots to fairways. Well worth a visit. the club house was a great place too with friendly staff and good service. Should have taken my snooker cue along also. Pro shop was well stocked and friendly, thanks Richie. Will definitely go back.
