Highly Recommended 2018

What the club says: High Throston is in a great location, with fantastic views over the Tees Bay and Cleveland Hills. Whilst far from the easist course, it is not the most challenging course, making it a great test for all level of golfer.

Used to here here all the time- a while back now However was the first time back today and unfortunately it doesn't look like it's getting looked after. Tee areas where scuffed and also cans of stella on nearly every hole and tee box. Greens where patchy and rather long with mud bubbles all over and also the bunkers where just hard sand like concrete ( never ended up in a bunker tho) it's such a shame because it does have potential to be good however I shall not be returning for the foreseeable until it gets better.

Great Course

haven't played the course for a couple of years, played today due to the booking nightmare for members at George Washington at the moment, and it was nice to be back. Course not in quite as good condition as I remember on the front nine, but back nine was great. Great course, good value, friendly and excellent views.

We played this tonight as 2 x 4 balls. We had a free 4 ball and split the difference so only £10 per person i have got to say even £10 is to much to play here. I all my years of playing i haven't seen a golf course in such a state. The greens are the worst i have ever played on and pitch and putt course are in better condition. The tee boxes were more like football goal mouths not tee boxes. I even got nettled in the bunker.

Its shame as the course is not a bad layout but the condition is horrendous.

We will not be back even if it was free.

8 disappointed golfers.

Price Increase

Price increase after lockdown during week to £20. Expensive for a course in such poor condition imo. Better courses around locally for lower prices

Course is looking good. the greens are pretty true but a few are not at their best. Always a good course to play, but best when not too windy

I have played courses that the greens abysmal, I have played courses that the tee boxes are abysmal, I have played courses that the bunkers are abysmal but High throston has the honour of having all three. As my mate said Yul Bruner has more grass on his head the greens or the tee boxes. There are weeds growing in the bunkers that are six inches high, they have not been raked in years\Not months.Worm casts have been there that long they are solid . On complaining we were told that due to illnesses and injuries things had not been done, I asked why were players still paying top prices. If you intend playing this course. DONT YOU WILL HAVE MORE FUN PLAYING CRAZY GOLF

Quite an open course with few trees\\It was very windy when I played but there was a weather warning for wind so it may not have been the best day for it!\\£17 for 18 holes. A couple of the greens were covered in leaves but that was probably down to the wind.\\Big hill from the 10th green to the 11th tee\\Quite a hill to the 16th tee too\\Nicely set out course but no clubhouse as such

good course

played saturday 21st April. played as a single. Greens are quite slow and not much movement, only one hole i couldnt putt straight too. left a few short due to the slowness of the greens. The rough makes the course look easy as there isnt many trees or bushes to hit. Except the rough swallows balls. Miss the green by 2 inches, spend your full 5 minutes looking for it. If it hasnt sat on top of a bit of rough its swallowed by rough that must be around 3-5 inches deep and very thick. course layout is pretty good and the top of the hill can get a bit windy, but not when i played. Pace of play i didnt have a problem. I didnt meet the two ball in front of me and the two ball on buggies behind me never caught up to me.
need to pay by cash as no card payment device. no clubhouse to talk of, small seating area and snacks and tea coffee available.
£10 for 9 holes £16 for 18 holes £20 on weekends.
visitors are advised to get the map and the scorecard at the desk, I had to help two visitors on the 17th fairway looking for the 13th.

Good Course

Course drains pretty well, which makes it an ideal winter choice, and was in pretty good condition. Some people seemed to have been unable to repair pitch marks and replace divots, but that's no fault of the course. Always good value and some spectacular views.
