What the club says: 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 Whitburn a challenging but enjoyable test of golf for golfers of all standards.

Whitburn greens are 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.

Brilliant to be back out after Covina 19

Course, organisation and all golfers where fantastic!

Whitburn have done a fantastic job in getting the course back open for both members and visitors making it easy to book and access within line with the guidelines.

Course was in great condition and definitely one to play again.

"Fantastic course worth visiting"

Not long but don't be fooled. When the wind picks up, or you stray offline! Course was in excellent condition with true greens. Very friendly at the club, will definitely play again when in the area.

course in good condition, greens fantastic. A good challenge of your game as whilst short if out of position you are unlikely to score well.
