The Club started in 2008 when we took over two former police bowling greens at Aykley Heads in Durham, a few hundred yards from Police HQ.

We are a very informal club (whites not required!) with just over 20 members covering a wide age range, playing golf croquet.

We are open Thursday and Saturday afternoons from about 1:30pm - 4:30pm and Monday evenings from 5.30pm - 7:30pm. All players are welcome from novices upwards.

For the last two summers we have also been providing Friday afternoon sessions for students from the nearby Trinity (Special) School, and can provide one-off sessions for other groups on request.
