Beautiful but rushed

Beautiful course with plenty of variety. However, we were playing at our usual pace and were pushed around the first 4 holes so let them play through and then spent the last 9 holes been pushed by the next group. We are NOT slow players.

The last few holes are a bit boring compared to the main course which is over the road but still nice to be facing the Yorkshire coast as we come in on the 18th

Good course to play

Despite being next to the sea , this is a Parkland course with the sea mainly visible from the first and eighteenth holes ….. but very definitely from the Clubhouse.
It was extremely windy and intermittently raining but still had a very enjoyable round.
Staff and Greenkeeper all very welcoming.

Scarborough North Cliff

Stunning conditions due to playing off mats in February which protects it.
Bunkers were perfect as each was consistent not as though I went in many lol.
Green all true but deceptively hard to read.
£20 a round on Golf Now definitely value for money..
Lovelly surroundings and quiet.

Lovely course

Great course in good condition. Some interesting holes although the last three were a bit disappointing. Shouldn’t take away from the first 16 holes. Friendly staff and a nice clubhouse.

Made to play with strangers

I and 5 friends had booked booked to play a round with golf now and the pro made us play with two strangers to make up two four balls. The strangers although friendly, didn’t want to play with us either. We thought the pro was just being pedantic and after the first hole(and out of site of the pro) just split up as we both requested in the first place. We were playing Scarborough South Cliffs the next day in a two day comp.
Poor start we thought . The actual course is lovely though. Please think of players as real people and not just punters mr. Golf pro.

Good course good value

had a good round of golf on a good course, late afternoon so it was quiet on the course so had no problems with pace of play, the fairways where good and the greens ran quite well, some good par 5's and tricky par 3's. not to bad on the legs for walking , the club only has a few buggies so best to book one if required.
the pro-shop (8am-2pm) was closed due to staffing as a new professional starts next week. not a problem though just had to pay for the round in the club house and the staff where very friendly and polite. always a pleasure to paly.

Scarborough North Cliff GC V Scarborough South Cliff GC

After playing the South Cliff GC last year, this we had try the competition...Both courses are very good courses, but for me the North Cliff just pipped it. As for catering the the south cliff don’t serve food after 5pm as of this time, last year. But the North Cliff have full bar catering and if you pre book full restaurant, so again the North Cliff wins...
Thanx for a great day! Just my opinion...

Attractive course in good condition

Picked up a bargain internet deal at this really nice course. Despite the time of year, the course was well-presented with an attractive layout and a good variety of holes. Highly recommended.

A Course of 2 parts

I visited North Cliff with a friend who has moved to the area and who is seeking a new club.

The booking was easy though the site and we got a Hot Deal at about 50% of the usual green fee.

On arrival the Pro Shop was easily seen, and the Pro was welcoming and gave us some great advice on the course, and a code to access the locker room. This was tidy and very welcome with lockers for visitors.

The 1st tee is spectacular with views over the sea to the castle. A strong westerly wind was challenging for those with a 'power fade' drive.

The first 2 and last 3 holes are played on the cliff side of the main road, The remainder of the holes are on a parkland style area which is reminiscent of Portugal with the pine tree fringed fairways.

Spectacular views abound, but with a 4 to 5 club wind, playing was a challenge.

Pace of play was not really an issue as the course was quiet. Preferred lies were in operation, but the fairways were dry and in excellent condition. Greens and approaches had been deep tined about 10 days previously, we had been advised, but they were varied in their playability.

The clubhouse offered a good choice of drinks and offered great views over the bay.

I'd love to return in less challenging conditions.

Castle Views

Great views of Scarborough Castle when playing the 1,2,16,17 and 18th holes. The rest of the coarse is laid out in a beautiful parkland setting.
Well worth playing.

Very impressed

Great course to play on a terrible day! Came to Scarborough on a couples weekend and decided to play golf instead of sitting in the pub watching football whilst the ladies go shopping, not being put off by the weather we solidered on and luckily it turned for the better to reveal a fantastic course with a great layout, looking past the fact that understandably the course was on temporary greens all 5 players were very impressed and agreed that it would be amazing to play in full bloom, hopefully we get the chance to do that.

Excellent course!

Was visiting family in Scarborough and decided to have a round as well. Managed to get a hot deal for £21 which was a fair price! Once over the road to the 3rd course becomes lovely, very picturesque and course in amazing condition! Challenging but fair!

The only down side was the amount of people on course! Waiting at almost every tee on the back 9. Should space the tee off times out a little to avoid this.

Walked

Played with 3 friends (who all play off 28) on a golf weekend. We had assumed more holes would overlook the sea based on the name of the course. Established tree lined course. Greens in good condition. Many holes seemed very similar and just straight. Booked tee time as a HOT Deal so just £20 which was an amazing bargain.
