Nothing quite beats the enjoyment you get from playing a coastal course. The additional challenges that the sea breeze can bring always makes for an interesting round and on the Yorkshire Coast you are guaranteed some breathtaking views too. Here’s a selection of some of Yorkshire’s finest coastal courses:
Filey Golf Club
Filey Golf Club was established in 1897. The original course was situated on land to the north of this fine old North Yorkshire fishing town. The course moved to its present site on the south side of town two years later. The design of the “new links” is credited to James Braid and examples of his design features can be seen on the course. The course has been modified over the years to take into account modern technology but still retains the original Braid layout.
Hornsea Golf Club
We are only minutes from the East Yorkshire coast and close to many family tourist attractions – including the Freeport shopping and leisure complex. Considered by many to be one of the best golf courses in Yorkshire, Hornsea Golf Course is both fair and demanding to golfers of all ability.
Saltburn by the Sea Golf Club
Saltburn by the Sea Golf Club was founded in 1894 and was designed by the legendary course architect and 5 time Open Championship winner James Braid. Sitting on the outskirts of the picturesque coastal town of Saltburn by the Sea the course offers magnificent panoramic views of the coastline as well as the iconic Roseberry Topping which sits proudly within the North York Moors National Park.
Whitby Golf Club
Whitby Golf Club is situated on the western side of the town on the road to the pretty coastal village of Sandsend and has a commanding position on the edge of the cliffs. There are wonderful views along the coast, over the picturesque bay of Sandsend. The course was founded in 1892.
