Bishop Auckland Golf Club in Durham updated their club

Bishop Auckland Golf Club - Founded In 1894

Situated in the Land of the Prince Bishops, with stunning views of the picturesque Wear Valley and Auckland Castle. It is easy to see why we are considered one of the treasures in County Durham.


Golf was first played at Bishop Auckland around 1890 in the outer park of the Palace of the Bishop of Durham by theological students training at the Castle. The club was established by local business and professional men in 1894 when James Kay was employed to design a course in parkland overlooking the Bishops of Durham's Palace and Park. From these early beginnings this course has matured into one of the finest golf courses in the North of England with fairways second to none.

This beautiful tree lined course is complemented by superb panoramic views across the Wear Valley. With three par 5 holes in the first four and the challenging par three 7th and 8th holes, this course provides a good test of golf for all abilities. The recently refurbished clubhouse provides full catering and refreshment facilities and a warm welcome is always guaranteed within it.
