Nestled in Houghton-le-Spring, not far from Durham, is Cocken Lodge Footgolf at Cocken Lodge Golf. Not far from the history and charm of Durham, but semi-rural and close to Finchale Abbey is this friendly and relaxed club which welcomes Footgolfers on their 9-hole course.
The mature trees and gentle undulations make for an interesting and diverse game which can be enjoyed by newcomers or pros alike. If you haven’t yet given Footgolf a try, then Cocken Lodge is an ideal venue. You need simply turn up wearing suitable shoes (trainers are ideal) with a spirit of fun. The game is simple to learn with the rules of golf but the kicking of a football. It’s suitable for all ages and ability levels. Once you’ve got the hang of things, the friendly competition will keep everyone on their toes and keen to improve.
