Perfect

We’ve been looking forward to playing this course for a while and we weren’t disappointed, it was a perfect warm breezy day to tackle this links course and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience from the bacon butties to the undulating greens and tricky green side bunkers

Windy weather

Windy round of golf

The course is situated on the top of the East Coast Cliffs.
Staff booking us on were hard work. The members we met on the course were great fun.
The wind made it even more difficult, we were told that it was a breeze compared to what it can be LOL.
Fairways and green were in great condition. would play again.

Yorkshire Tour

Awesome course with delightful views over Flanborough Headland. Would definitely play again and recommend to friends. The greens were in great condition, and the wind made it a testing course. We really enjoyed playing. All the best and see you again, Liam and Ian

Disappointed

The course was very clever in the way it was set out, and it kept your interest peaked.
However. I thought the fairways were bumpy at best, but the really frustrating thing was the long grass. There are parts of the course that had no rough, it just went to long grass, which may as well be out of bounds. As this is marketed to players of all abilities this is frustrating, because as soon as it goes in there you are not getting your ball back, and that’s expensive.
Long grass a good way from the fairway is fair enough, but this was completely unnecessary. Cut the grass, mark it as out of bounds and at least you can keep your balls.
This course could be brilliant with a bit more thought for the beginner golfer, because it is most certainly not suitable for them at the current state.
Good greens though.

Fantastic views

Really enjoyed the course. Good holes. Fortunately the weather was good, can imagine it would be very challenging in bad weather, but would definitely return.
Thank you to the club

Great links course

First time playing this course and a snip at £10 for a twilight round from 3pm.

Clubhouse was open on arrival, however I couldn’t find anyone to check in with. Not to worry though, after a quick hit on the tricky putting green I set off on my round. Judging by the emptiness of the car park, the course was pretty quiet, resulting in a quick pace of play.

The course was in decent condition, the fairways were excellent but some of the greens a tad bobbly but by no means unplayable.

First 9-10 holes are a little repetitive and up and down both in elevation and position. Some long testing par 4’s and some tricky par 3’s.

Would highly recommend, especially at £10!

Kev

Course never fails to deliver, year on year I’ve been coming back since 1995 and enjoy more every time.

Fairways are in lovely condition as are the greens.

Thank you Flamborough head and hope to see you again soon.

A most unpleasant experience

We booked the tee times the week before we we due to play the course. When we arrived in good time to check in, we were greeted by a most unfriendly man looking after the bookings in the pro shop. He told us that we could not play at our allotted time of 10.36 am. because it was Ladies day and you GBN,,the booking agent,had failed to adhere to this club's tee closure time requirement, yet again. He said he may be able to find us a time after 11.10 but it was difficult and said we may have to wait until after 1.30. His manner was most unpleasant.
We do not expect to have this greeting and mess up when we book a tee time. Between you and this golf club you need to get your act sorted out so that other people's holiday time is not ruined.
