Chester-le-Street Golf Club
Designed by leading golf course architect JH Taylor, Chester le Street golf club offers a long and particularly testing parkland course with some very tight fairways and excellent views of the surrounding Durham countryside as well as Lumley Castle which neighbours the course. It is fairly flat but still somewhat challenging, and a stern test regardless of how low your handicap may be.
There are plenty of hazards that require careful negotiation also in order to score well here, so good knowledge of your irons will help you master the tricky approaches to the greens. At 6437 yards, you will definitely need good stamina to make your way around it, and the par is 70.
