Whitley Bay Golf Club

18 Hole Par71 Course, Pro Shop, Indoor Golf Studio

In the North East, there are few more challenging courses…

Founded in 1890 on the sea front links it moved to its current location in 1906 and still lies within half a mile of the coast.

The town of Whitley Bay, whilst close, never intrudes into the scenic course, which is populated with a variety of wildlife.  Whitley Bay Golf Course presents generous fairways, bordered by undulating rough, gorse and large trees.

A key feature is the Briardene, which runs through the course and must be carried from the 5th, 15th, and 16th tees and comes into play on the 12th.

The course is one of the finest tests of golf in the North East. At 6579 yards (par 72, SSS 73) it has hosted many National and County events over the years, including a European Tour event in 1977, The Callers.

Significant improvements to the layout have taken place over recent years adding to our policy of continuous improvement.


The club is also one of a few in the North East to have an Indoor Golf Studio, having 3 practice bays with one offering GC2 (as seen on Sky Sports) which allows golfers to practice the various aspects of their games or play some of the best courses in the world, from Turnberry to The Belfry to Troon to name a few. This is a great facility for those both experienced and new to the game with lessons being able to be booked with the PGA Professional David Twizell.

The Indoor Studio is open to the public  9am-4pm, 7 days per week.
