Durham City Golf Club offers a warm welcome to all age groups. It is a picturesque parkland course with tree lined fairways flanked by the river Browney. The whole course, tees, greens and fairways are played on all year round. A family friendly clubhouse with bar, lounge and restaurant is open to the public. Social nights to suit all ages are programmed throughout the year. The staff welcomes the opportunity to cater for events and celebrations of all types.
The Durham City Golf Club Practice Facilities
At DCGC players can practice all aspects of their game, as we offer generous practice facilities for the club golfer. A 200 yard long practice area, readily accessible from the clubhouse and car park, together with an adjacent chipping green and practice bunker provide ample capacity for members of DCGC.
Should players wish to hit a few balls but not wish to walk too far to pick them up, there are two full size warm-up practice nets located at the western end of the practice area.Also whilst a new medal tee was being constructed for the first hole, the opportunity was taken to also extend the practice putting green, effectively doubling the total area.
The putting green is conveniently located between the 1st tee and the clubhouse, so if you get second thoughts whilst warming up to go out on the course there is always the option of the 19th hole!
Durham City Golf Club is one of England's oldest inland clubs having been inaugurated in the historic cathedral city in 1887. We are a traditional golf club with modern standards, taking a relaxed and welcoming stance to all members and visitors. The course offers a challenge for golfers of all abilities; the subtly sloped greens and gentle terrain make it a testing but always enjoyable challenge.
The Club is located in the village of Langley Moor just off the A690, 2 miles south west of the ancient city centre of Durham, easily accessible from the A1(M). The history of the city with its castle and cathedral World Heritage site makes it a must see place for all visitors to the north east. For golfers, Durham City Golf Club should be added to their list of must play courses when visiting the region or organising a society day.
The Littleburn course is the Club's third home within the city and is a delightful parkland course laid out on the banks of the River Browney. Each hole, enveloped in avenues of trees, provides its own test almost in seclusion. The course, having matured dramatically since the Club moved to this site in November 1974, is testimony to the foresight and hard work of all those involved over many years. The culmination of this was being invited to host the English Girls Championship in 2008, a first for the region and true recognition of the quality of the course.
