Hidden Gem!

Hidden gem outside Newcastle’s centre. I’ve played there a couple of times now, always managed to get a friendly member to take me around and mark my card. The 12th hole is Epic!

Great golf but not friendly

Course was lovely. A bit dry but that’s to be expected. The members however were very unfriendly. They spoiled what could have been a lovely day. Staff were great.

Bob/joanne

Whitley Bay on a lovely day--been 25yrs since i played this course. Layla Levy the secretary was as lovely as ever and a delight to see again-, thankyou. Fairways --hard but cut short--greens--very good /fast /true---thankyou Martin. Theres been a few changes on the course --bridges OOB and some of the fairways have been smoothed out but easy walking . The clubhouse hasnt changed--good selection of beers / food ----all in all --a good day out and extremely good value.

Fantastic condition

This was my first visit to WBGC for a few years and I was really impressed by the course developments and the overall course condition which was fantastic.. The green fee was great value for money and the pace of play was good considering how busy the course was. Definitely play here if you get the chance.

Golf Now! Never again

Golf Now, needs to understand that information is key! Especially in the winter months, we arrived at the course! And hour before, to give us chance to familiarize ourselves with the facilities, changing area and warm up! We then noticed A sign stating no trolleys? First issue! Then we went to the pro shop! To speak to the staff, who gave us carry bags which I thought was really good considering Golf now had not informed me that no trolleys were allowed today? Also the fact the the course had been closed the previous day! And was only by chance it was open to play today. We headed to the first tee! Straight away we couldn’t find the correct tee? Purple sticks in the ground? New one but ok! As we played the next few holes we could see that the course was very very wet even in the middle of the fairway? We all agreed that the course would be so much better if it was dryer, the greens were in good condition, but the fact it’s was very wet, foot prints were leaving dents in the ground, therefore putting was impossible, After a few more holes we decided enough was enough and walked off on the 11 hole! We thought we would head to the bar for at least a drink to finish the day. But again the bar only took cash not card? So we couldn’t even get a drink! Apart from the fact we thought that whitley bay golf course would be good to play in better conditions . I won’t be booking it through Golf now. I have already deleted the App! Won’t be returning to golf now until it improves its overall communication with customers!

First visit to Whitley bay golf course

This was the first time I'd played at Whitley bay golf course and first impressions is that I'm looking forward to better weather to be able to enjoy it more. Understandably there was a no trollies allowed and using a carry bag was tough going as there is alot of elevated fairways.
