One of the four courses on the County Durham Golf Trail competition - what a challenge, well maintained course with interesting holes. Friendly welcome received from everyone. Look forward to next year.

Brancepeth is a very welcoming and friendly golf club. The course itself is well maintained and the greens are firm. It is a challenging course, requiring all types of shots. Having said that it is not an 'impossible' course and we thoroughly enjoyed our round....More
