Course Description

Whitburn Golf Club offers a fine links-style test on the north-east coast between South Shields and Sunderland, with Newcastle and the city’s airport a little more than 30 minutes away.

The course was laid out in 1934 by John Morrison of Colt, Alison and Morrison Ltd – the British golf architecture firm founded in 1928. Morrison is also known to have designed nearby Brancepeth Castle, Wentworth and Princes, while being involved in the redesign of Royal Lytham & St Annes, Moortown, Royal Cinque Ports and Sunningdale.

He produced this fantastic 18-hole, par-70 course that offers fantastic vistas of the north-east coastline from County Durham to the south up to Northumberland.

Many alterations have been carried out to the course over the years as additional land has become available, but the course still retains some of the original features. The course is based on a bed of limestone, which aids drainage and helps maintain the opening of the course when others in the area are closed.Fossil inclusions in the limestone base gives evidence of the rock’s marine origins.

The club is fully supported by a resident PGA professional.
