Ramside Golf Club: one of the top courses in the North East

Ramside Golf - Risk and Reward golf at its most thrilling

In mature parkland estate on the doorstep of historic Durham City is a golf club and resort created for people who simply love to play great golf.


Ramside Hall Hotel and Golf Club is North East England’s most exciting risk and reward golf resort. Its two 18-hole championship golf courses, the Prince Bishops and the Cathedral, provide drama, enjoyment and excitement from the first tee to the final green.

British golf course designer Jonathan Gaunt has helped Ramside Estates Ltd create the most rewarding and welcoming golf club and golf breaks destination in North East England.

Perfectly placed for Golf Breaks and Golf Holidays


Ramside Golf Club is a thriving members’ golf club which welcomes golf groups, golf societies, visitors and corporate golf events to enjoy its 36-holes of golf, golf academy, driving range and four star luxury hotel.

Located on the doorstep of Durham City and less than two minutes from the A1M motorway heading North and South, Ramside is one of the most convenient and accessible places to play golf in Northern England.

Ramside Hall Hotel and Golf Club has two championship golf courses, read about the Prince Bishops Course and the Cathedral Course.

Ramside Hall Hotel and Golf Club opened in 1996 and its Prince Bishops Course is now established as one of the best golf courses in North East England.

The par 72 course measures 6,851 yards from its championship tees and has views of world famous Durham Cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the inspiration for Ramside’s second course – The Cathedral Course – opening in 2014.  The Prince Bishops course is named after the warrior clergymen who ruled over the lawless North from Durham Castle after the Norman Conquest in the 11th Century.

A golf course with a spirit of adventure


The course has spirit of adventure and features 16 water hazards, reachable par 5’s, driveable par 4’s, and short holes that demand shot-making skills from wedge to woods.

Designer Jonathan Gaunt laid out a golf course that delivers risk and reward golf at its best. Water comes into play on 10 holes and there are nine doglegs on the card which demand good strategy and the ability to move the ball both ways if you are to score at your lowest.

The course is fair. The fairways are wide and generous and there is a conservative option available on every hole so that any standard of golfer can enjoy Ramside’s challenge.

Where the risk is almost always worth the reward


For those who love the challenge of driving over trees, water and sand, risking disaster in search of eagles and birdies, then there is nowhere better in North East England to experience the thrill of taking on a great golf course.

Walking the fairways among 50,000 mature trees brings a sense of escapism and only rarely do two holes come close together, making Ramside golf feel like millionaire’s golf.

You’ll enjoy our large USGA specification greens that blend sweeping undulations, testing tiers and gentle flat spots.

We are proud of our North East roots and so every hole is named after a popular Geordie or Northumbrian saying, so “gan canny,” don’t “tippy tappy,” and give the ball “a lang welt.”

The Prince Bishops Course has hosted regional PGA tournaments, top amateur championships and is a favourite of pro-celebrity and charity golf day organisers.

England’s newest golf course – Ramside Cathedral Course


In 2011, work started on a second 18-hole Championship golf course to join the Prince Bishops. Our new 7,200 yard Cathedral Course will open later this year and is the only new championship golf course opening in England in 2014.

The Cathedral Course has been built on rolling countryside between the villages of Belmont and Pittington with breath-taking natural features including ridges, becks and valleys.

The course extends out over a broad hilltop with views of Durham Cathedral and as far afield as the Angel of the North in Gateshead, before dropping down into a valley and rising up again to return to the parkland estate where its closing holes end back at the clubhouse and hotel.

The middle holes are laid out across a high plateau, previously called ‘Hilltop Farm’ - with wide-open skies and 360 views - then drop down into a striking valley with dramatic elevation changes, mature trees, steep banksides and a coursing beck.

Ramside’s Amen Corner

Designer Jonathan Gaunt calls the stretch of holes from the 11th to the 14th ‘Ramside’s Amen Corner.’ The downhill par-three 12th bears an uncanny resemblance to its famous counterpart in Georgia but instead of Rae’s Creek, Sherburn Beck stands guard at the front of the green.

England’s newest golf course opening in 2014

The golf course is now complete and a soft opening planned for July. Nine interchangeable holes will open for play and the remaining nine open in September, allowing the warmer summer months to help new turf, grasses and rough to bed down.
