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 degree views - then drop down into a striking valley with dramatic elevation changes, mature trees, steep banksides and a coursing beck.
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.
Ramside Hall is one of the most enjoyable places to play golf in North East England and offers a range of full and flexible golf membership packages to suit any lifestyle and budget.
