Reviewed Mar 27 2013 by Nigel Outhwait - rated 1 out of 5
Very boring and a wide open course!!! Most of the par 4's are very similar, followed by three consecutive par 5's that are squashed together and only the greens are different! Hole 13 is a nice par 3. Greens are over rated to say the least and course could do with a major shake up! Clubhouse food is very poor, beer not good and expensive.

This course is really well kept but I found it a bit monotonous. Plus I dislike courses that have tee boxes firing over previous greens forcing waits (especially on busy days).

The course is very good for mid to high handicap players. This was the first time we've played it and we'd definitely go back. It was very windy but still very playable. Greens are excellent.

A nice course, fairways in good dry condition. Greens still bumpy and are in new of a good role, hard to get a read of the greens.

This course was in excellent condition when we visited, especially considering the winter we have had. The holes on the first part of the course are a bit samey, although the par 3's are a good challenge. The final 5 holes over the road are good old fashioned links holes. The course provides excellent views over Tynemouth and out to sea.

The staff in the pro shop and clubhouse were very friendly, as was the member who pointed us in the right direction when we got lost on the course. Finally the food was both excellent in quality and price, and at £16 for a full day's golf Whitburn is worth trying out if you are in the area.

a very open course which makes it enjoyable to play as it is not too punishing of wayward drives. Some great views out to sea as well as north past the major conurbations of tyneside to the cheviot hills beyond. We played on a very benin evening, i think the course may be a differant animal if a stiff sea breeze gets up.
a lot of the holes are quite similar and a bit more variety would not go amiss. there are however some very nice approach shots to play into some pleasant and interesting greens. the clubhouse and locker room seem very tired and in need of some rennovation but all of the people we met around the club were very friendly. at £10 a round from 5 o'clock the value cannot be in doubt !!

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.

It's a links course so very well drained and holds up well in all weathers. Some challenging holes and stunning scenery - particularly when you cross the road for the last few holes. Some well placed hazards along the way to keep the interest. The course has become our 'go-to' course if the weather isnt great. Love it!
