Highly Recommended 2019

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.

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

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.

Poor condition

A very flat course, with promise due to the challenging rough, but considerably let down by awful greens (and pretty bad tee boxes).

Not worth the weekend green fee until the greens significantly improve, would not rush back unfortunately.

Hopefully a full winter of recovery will leave them in better condition for next year.

I played Whitby golf club on 28th January and found it to be in great condition for the time of year. The club being a bit unorthodox to what I am used to is a breath of fresh air, this is how golf clubs should be. As far as value for money is concerned it's the best green fees I've ever paid and will most definitely play again when I am up that way. Highly recommend a visit if ever you are in the area.

Compact course that makes benefit of the surrounding terrain well, including a couple of drives over a ravine.

Played on a Monday where there were discounted green fees at £12.50. Great value. Fantastic coastal views. Course is challenging especially with the wind but suits all handicaps due to variety of distances on the holes. Tees and fairways were pristine but the greens were quite bare in places (May end 2019). If they were much greener, they would be perfect because they have challenging contours and some need good accuracy due to shape and pin positions. Although patchy, they were smooth with little ball bobbling when putted.
Did use clubhouse so can’t comment on food or bar but the Pro Shop attendant was very friendly and helpful. Well worth a play especially if on holiday in the area.

Pleasant course

Booked a good deal via Golf Now. Nice welcome in Pro Shop and advised that greens were being fertilized. They had also recently been tined, but were very playable.

Front 9 and last 2 hole are played on the coastal side, with the remainder being more parkland in style.

Course was very quiet so no problem with pace and once we'd oriented ourselves got round quite well - we were unsure of where the 8th fairway ran but this was not an issue.

Did not visit the club house but others on the course were very friendly.

I played the course whilst on holiday one evening. The twilight rate was only £12.50 and exceptionally good value. The course was lovely and in fantastic condition. A real challenge in places especially some of the holes close to the coast. The views were fantastic and I will definitely try and play again before I leave.
