The new practise bunker can now be used, can golfers please rake the bunker correctly after use.

11 June

Early start

Always so nice and peaceful at 4am, only a lone hare for company, till I start tining the greens! Tined, dressed and brushed in by 10am then a quick cut, you’ve got to love modern machinery !

10 June

Advance warning - the greens will be micro timed and top dressed tomorrow morning, all work however should be completed by lunch time.

Congratulations John
This month our Deputy Head Greenkeeper John Laws (the greens iron man) celebrates 40 years service at Bishop Auckland Golf Club. I’m sure you’ll all join me in congratulating him on this achievement. Well done John, here’s to many more????

21 May

I’d like to introduce our new member of greenstaff, Alan Shaw. Alan has 14 years experience having previously worked at Crook GC and Oakdale GC in Harrogate and replaces Joe, binging our staff back up to 5. I’m sure you’ll all join me in welcoming Alan to BAGC .

New practise bunker coming along nicely

13 May

The 7th hole is back in play, unfortunately not because the job has been completed. The collapsed walls have been removed, but further work would have caused structural damage to the bridge, so the job has been put back to a later date.
On a positive note, we have dug out the basic shape of the new practise bunker by the chipping green.


Attention- the 7th hole will be closed on Monday 14th May to carry out essential work on the stream backside. The collapsed wall will be removed, and replaced with gabion baskets.
While work is carried out the 8th hole will still be in play from the 8th tees only, 13a will also be brought into in play.
Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

4 May

Just in case anyone notices and is concerned. We had a leak on the power steering of the toro workman yesterday while spraying, which has left some oil drips. This has been treated with an oil remover/degrader we had in stock, so is not expected to cause significant damage to the greens.

3 May

Our first compost tea has been applied today, soil temperatures are now at a level for increased bio activity. hopefully we’ve seen the back of the frost we had on Monday and we’re inline for some conditions that will encourage a little growth on the greens.
