Consistently excellent course

I’ve played several times at this course and it has always been immaculate. A very fair course with some challenging par 4 holes. The greens are always in great condition. There are some top views both north and south up and down the coast. The members are also very friendly which can’t be said for all clubs.

Great course!

A scenic course with perfect greens. Only thing lacking was a little bit more direction on where the holes are, extra signage would be great as it does cross over quite a bit.

But that’s just a minor point in a fantastic course. Well kept, nice staff and couldn’t have asked for better weather - really brought out the views of the North East. I look forward to returning soon.

Exceeded expectations

Thoroughly enjoyed the round at South Shields on a windy day. There is a good variety of holes with the par 3’s all playing long, some long par 4’s and some reachable par 5’s. It all makes for a great challenge. The staff were very welcoming, the pace of play excellent, overall the course was in great condition and the coastal views quite stunning. Definitely a course I will visit again.

nice people and nice course

Enjoyed the round although it was very windy and wind seemed to be either with or against every hole. Some Par 4's very long yet both Par 5's short and easily reachable in 2 for good players (not me!). Lady in clubhouse friendly and sandwiches excellent - my friend knows his food. Will definitely return - highly recommended.

Friendly and Welcoming

Firstly the members and staff are friendly and welcoming from the off. I played a round with two members Sandy and Roger. Two great lads. Quick witted and always ready to give advice on where to play your shot. The course itself is well laid out and fantastically maintained. Greebs were immaculate. Pace of play was slow due to a two ball who obviously thought they were in a playoff gor the Open. All in all a great day. Definitely will be back!
