Founded in 1890, and just a few hundred yards from the wonderful Northumberland Coastline, Whitley Bay Golf Course is one of the finest courses in the North East of England. Its undulating terrain shares parkland and heathland characteristics, with fast, true greens, all maintained to an exceptional standard, and providing a high quality test for golfers of all abilities.
Follow in the footsteps of golfing legends: play on a course designed by 1912 Open Champion Ted Ray and graced by some of the greatest golfers in history, including Harry Vardon, James Braid, Seve Ballesteros, Nick Faldo, Lee Trevino and Greg Norman..
The club is internationally recognised as one of only 50 in the UK to have achieved the GEO Certified® excellence award, the symbol of great golf environments worldwide – designating a golf facility as having met high standard in the areas of Nature, Resources, Community, and is committed to continuing improvement.
