First but not the last

First time here abs what a lovely course.
Obviously at this time of year it was very wet in places but nevertheless it was totally playable.
A few great holes making you having to think about shot placement abs enjoyed the mix of uphill, downhill abs doglegs .
Looking forward to playing here again definitely

South Moor great test of Golf

Know this course extremely well as a previous member.
No two holes alike so a much varied and challenging great golf course.
SAD to say yesterday the course was so wet and muddy hardly able to find a decent lie without water under foot it was shocking !
VALUE for MONEY - NOT
Preferred lies , saturated fairway , bunkers out of play , suggested hitting portable mats ! BOOKED a HOT DEAL at £18.00 pp It was not we got a DAMP SQUID .
4 Ball introducing 2 new players to this course I was embarrassed .
We should expect a 4 BALL COMPLIMENTARY FREE ROUND for a revisit when it’s a playable course .

Wet course

Played here a few weeks ago just as they had spiked the greens, must say recovered really well just just wet. Fairways were very soaked ball plugged a few times needs better drainage. Overall great views on the well laid out, great in warmer weather maybe miss in winter

Course very wet.....

Played today and was disappointed to find the course in poor shape. Even though we have had little rain several holes were very heavy underfoot on the fairways and the greens were saturated and very soft. The Tees were also poor, showing signs of heavy use. Not sure what the course will be like when we have alot of rain or through winter.

Great condition

A challenging layout with shorter holes made more difficult by changes in elevation. Some nice scenery. Greens were in great condition and the pace of play excellent. The pro shop was among the best stocked I have seen. Green staff were courteous helping maintain the pace of play. Definitely good value for money and worth a visit.

southmoor

Very good course. designed by the designer of Agusta. The first time we played it, the greens were like glass, they had just been hollow tined so were thankfully slow. The fairways are of georgous fine grass which is beautiful to play of. Some very difficult holes and some fairly easy when using the wind.
It's on the side of a fairly steep hill so was windy. Some lovely big drives from the tee down the hills.
food is excellent in the bar.

A canny course at a great price

I had not played this course for years. It still surprised me what a nice course this is. Great layout. Some testing holes a real gem. The tee price was good for a visitor. Pro shop large. I don't think anyone will be disappointed. Greens treated when I played. Will play again next time I'm in the area.

Past it’s best maybe

First of all the members wie meet and green keepers were all super nice northern friendliness tat its best.

Unfortunately they had green maintenance week which wasn’t announced when we booked the course on recommendation that this is after Seaton Carew and Brancepeth Castle the best course in Durham. It might have been in the past. Course conditions were ok, club house closed. The green keeper offered for us to come back and the few greens that were not worked on showed potential and so did the course, but funds possible not available due to economical circumstances.

Can’t fault the course.
The members made us as welcome as a fox in a hen house and spoiled our day out.
