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 2022 County Durham Golf Trail winners and will keep the trophy presented.

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.
