Situated on the south side of Darlington with easy access to the A1, the golf course at Blackwell Grange Golf Club is set in beautiful surroundings and offers a test to golfers of all abilities with its par of 71 (73 from the red tees).
Since its move to Snipe Lane (formerly Stressholme) in 2013, the club has invested significantly in the course and facilities, including remodelling a trio of par three holes; carrying out changes to a number of other holes; replacing sand in all the bunkers; creating a short game practice area; constructing a new practice putting green; and creating a six-hole academy course for juniors. Further course improvements are also planned for the near future. The facilities are enhanced further inside the friendly and relaxing clubhouse, while the club is also home to a 13-bay floodlit driving range with swing studio and a well-stocked professional shop – all of which service a thriving and diverse membership across all categories.
Tuition at Blackwell Grange is delivered by PGA professionals Peter Raine and Aaron Cox – who has been instrumental in growing the club’s junior section to more than 120 participants, an achievement recognised at the 2022 England Golf Awards when Aaron received the trophy for Participation & Development Coach of the Year.
If you are new to the area, or haven’t played Blackwell Grange for a while, now is a great time to take in the improvements and enjoy all the club has to offer.
