“Best course in the North East of England – I was a member for 20 years before moving down south in 2011 to work for Golfbreaks. I’ve been fortunate to travel a bit and play a lot of top courses in the UK and Europe and when I came back to the North East last year I was amazed at the improvements since I left. Whitley Bay genuinely stands up as one of the best courses I have ever played and is better than a lot of courses that people rave about in the UK and abroad.

There are too many spectacular improvements to mention them all but above all the quality of the greens has been exceptional for the past few year and all year round. It’s clear to me that we could very easily hold open qualifying if we had the infrastructure for practice facilities.

There are lot members (and visitors I’m sure) who are extremely appreciative of the tremendous work the greenkeepers do to present such a fantastic course.”
