Overview

The Brancepeth Castle Golf Club was laid out on Brancepeth Castle Deer Park. The stables and coach house now serve as the clubhouse.

The most memorable part of the course is the ravine that cuts its way through the course adding suspense to tee shots.

Steep faced bunkers adorn all but 3 holes and hollows and mounds are used to good effect.
