5 reviews of Chester-le-Street Golf Club
A super course in an attractive location with Lumley Castle, the river Wear and the international cricket ground near by. The course is well maintained with excellent greens and fairways. The Club House is comfortable providing friendly service and good value for money. The Club Professional, David Fletcher, is held in high regard across the north-east region and his shop is well stocked at competitive rates. Always happy to play there!
I played here on 8th September 2007. Friendly welcome despite our being on courtesy tickets. The club house catering was very good value. The setting of this course is fantastic, Lumley Castle behind and Durham County Cricket Club below. The views from the higher parts of the course are worth waiting for. The course layout has been described by others before me. The fairways were excellent, bunkers were consistent and the greens were true and quick. Will I go back? Yes please
On first impressions Chester Le Street course wasnt the most friendly Ive been on, and non-members must tee off within certain time periods, NOT before. The course itself is very nice, and suits golfers of all handicaps. The course is split into three sections, the front 4 holes being up and down hill with many trees, 5-9 are part of the most recently opened part of the course, and so trees are still young. The back 9 are a mix. The course has only 2 par 5's which are on the Front 9 and a long par 4 on the back 9. The fairways and tee boxes are kept in imaculate condition and the greens are fast and true. Had an excellent round of golf on a challenging but do-able course. Value for money for a non-member isnt too good in my opinion though.
We played this course on our way up country for a weeks golf in the Scottish Borders. The course is basically set in 3 seperate sections, all with slightly different character. The first is sloped and wooded, the second is flatter with rough and water and the third is sloped with undulating fairways in places. It has a great view of the surrounding town. We felt the front 9 was somewhat better than the shorter back 9 The course was in good condition generally although our day was spoiled by the rudeness of one particular club member who didn't seem to like pay & play golfers on his course.
Set in the shadows of Lumley Castle and overlooking the new Riverside Cricket Ground this is a very testing with some long holes. Excellent greens and a well maintained course. Friendly club, smart clubhouse with good range of food. Well stocked pro shop and good practice area. Worth a visit.
