Whitby Golf Club

18 Hole Par71 Course, Pro Shop

Having originally been founded at Goathland in 1892 Whitby Golf Club has been located in this stunning clifftop location between Whitby and Sandsend since 1895. There are wonderful views along the coast between Kettleness and the iconic Whitby Abbey and views inland towards the rolling North York Moors. Where ever you are on the course you are guaranteed a view of the sea!

Whitby Golf Club is easily accessible from the North East via Middlesbrough and from the South and West via Scarborough and York. The course is perfect for visitors as it is neither too long or difficult, but remains a good challenge for the lower handicap golfer. The weather conditions can also provide an interesting, if unexpected, playing partner.

There are great value green fees available throughout the week with discounted rates all day on Mondays and Twilight rounds available every day. All members and staff at Whitby Golf Club will offer you a warm welcome so why not check out our extensive range of golf and catering packages available to all sizes of groups from individuals through to larger parties.

The Course

Whitby Golf Club is situated on the A174 between Whitby and Sandsend and has a commanding position on the edge of the cliffs. There are wonderful views along the coast towards to Kettleness to the north west and south eastward across to Whitby harbour and pier with the Abbey ruins dominating behind. Whitby Golf Club enjoys some of the most spectacular views of any of the courses along the Yorkshire Coast with the sea visible from the majority of holes as you climb up towards the edge of the North York Moors.

It is the ideal type of course for all levels of golfers, as it is neither too long or difficult, but donít be fooled! Whatever your handicap you need to be accurate on all holes to avoid some of the more interesting hazards. The fairways may look wide and forgiving, but wayward shots can be severely punished. The most striking feature is the Upgang Ravine which has to be driven when playing the 6th and 18th holes. In addition the cliff top location means that the degree of difficulty will be dictated by the prevailing wind coming off the land, but beware Ė it may suddenly catch you out and start blowing off the North Sea.
