What the club says: It is the ideal type of holiday course, not too long or difficult for the moderate player provided a reasonable degree of accuracy is achieved. "Wild hitters" can be severely punished, as some of the hazards are quite unusual. The most striking is the wild cleft in the Cliffs known as "Upgang Ravine" which has to be driven when playing the 6th and 18th holes. The degree of driving difficulty on many an occasion is decided by the prevailing wind which may come from either the North Sea or the moors.

Always a pleasure but less so with the third closed

Whitby is one of my favourite courses in the area, however the third being totally closed and the fourth having its tee moved due to the third works definitely affects the ratings this time. Aside from the aforementioned work, the course was in good condition for the time of the year and greens although having treatment were fast and true. As always very pleasant members and a pleasure to play even on an extremely windy day (added to the fun!).

Golf trip venue 2022

Small group of 7 on a golf trip and had a ball here. Really warm welcome. Great course which challenged both low and high handicappers. It's the wind which provides the difficulty here. 2mph both days. The views are fantastic and the course was in fabulous nick. We are here too and the food and service was excellent.

What a day. Wind, rain, sun, typical of a links course on the coast, great challenge in firm conditions. Greens were good. Food and hospitality second to none. Already plannig a group booking next year.

The fairways were quite narrow so more often then not you were playing out of whispy grass,also there were a couple of ravines you had to get over which made for some great teeing off shots.Loved it.

Enjoyable forgiving course

New course layout that although a little shorter nevertheless still interesting and better as the course feels more integrated rather than the two road separated sections. The short holes greens are being protected with new ditches. Greens were heavily sanded and fast. Bunkers and fairways in good condition.

great views and a challenging course

11 of the holes played on the clifftop with great views fortunately we had a windless day which I believe is rare. Good challenge with rolling fairways in good condition, greens not quite so good but it is getting late in the year and signs they were being worked on. Definitely revisit

(Round played: Oct 2020 - Score: 105 Handicap: 21.1)

Interesting cliff top course

Very windy on day played, 9-7-2 course configuration with middle 7 over road away from cliff playing around a housing estate and a little back and forth. However, the 11 on the cliff side are fun to play especially the 4th, 6th and 18th over ravines. Course generous and fairways in great condition, but the greens, having recently been worked on, were terrible and the only down side, apart from the bar closing at 4.30pm. Very enjoyable overall.

(Round played: Sep 2020 - Score: 91 Handicap: 16.3)
