Description

Whitburn Golf Club, set near the coast by South Shields, offers magnificent panoramic views of the North East coastline and the mouth of the river Tyne. Tynemouth Priory and St Mary's island in Northumberland are in view and on a good day, the Cheviot Hills to the north and the Cleveland Hills to the south can also be seen. Whitburn Golf Club is a friendly golf club where visitors and societies are always welcome. Even without the prevailing westerly winds which often blow here, the 200 year old limestone walls, cleverly placed bunkers and the small, well-guarded greens make it a challenging but enjoyable test of golf for golfers of all standards. The greens are also considered to be among the best in the county. The course was originally laid out in 1934 by John Morrison, who was responsible for the re-development of both Wentworth and the Princes course at Sandwich. Although the course is officially described as parkland, the final five holes run along the coastline and are, to all but the true purist, links holes. The course also has five par 3's, all of which are generally played with a cross wind. The course has excellent natural drainage from the underlying limestone rock. This makes Whitburn an ideal choice for those golfers wishing to play to "Winter Golf" as the course remains playable when most other courses in the area are closed. Winter golf is made more enjoyable as Whitburn has installed top quality "Huxley" tee mats and has never had a trolley ban. Whitburn has a "no closure" policy and buggy hire is also available.
