About Us
Bishop Auckland Golf Club is situated in the land of the Prince Bishops with views of the picturesque Wear Valley. Founded 1894 on land owned by the church commission, it is a fine parkland course and a great test of golf for any level of golfer. The star hole is the par 3 7th which has figured in many a magazine and is rated as one of the best holes in the North East of England.

We warmly welcome both members and visitors and look forward to seeing you soon to play one of the best courses in the North East of England.
