You normally enter the event by registering your time for the first club and your tee time will be allocated for each club thereafter. You can input your requested tee off times for day two and three when booking day one by adding this request in the ‘personal details’ box. Or, email the site administrator  – we will endeavour to meet this request but cannot guarantee it and will be allocated as close to the requested time as availability allows. The final Day will see pairs go out in order of scores accumulated from days one to three and leading scores will tee off last.

Day 2  10:30 – 14:30

Day 3  10:00 – 14:00

Prizes & Presentation

The County Durham Golf Trail is a fun and social event but with enough at stake to get the competitive juices flowing ! We hope you like the changes we’ve made to our competitive format !

  1. A maximum one prize winning voucher per pair, in the event of a pair winning two vouchers over the four days, the highest value voucher will be the prize issued.

2) The highest point total accrued over the four days will be the 2024 County Durham Golf Trail winners.

3) In the event of a tie the countback will be via course rather than last day back 9. For example: overall tie winner is best score on final day/3rd day/2nd day/1st day. This should ensure a definitive winner.

3) Prizes will be presented after the final day at Brancepeth Castle Golf Club

4) In 2024 the numbers of prizes for the mixed and mens pairs will be determined by the entries – in 2023 we awarded 3 prizes each day for the Mixed pairs and a further prize for the Mens pairs.
