Really Poor

Last day before lockdown, clear blue skies, no wind. Booked on the GolfNow app, no issues, but when we got there they said 1x temp green, 2x holes closed, 1x par 5 shortened to 200 yards... annoyed, we headed to the first tee... turns out also the greens had been slit and were like WW1 battlefields, totally unplayable. Still, at least the weather and company was great.

Lack of information

The ground staff where working on the greens when I arrived but the staff didn't inform me of this and this spoilt the round as the majority of greens were on temps.
If I had known this l would have booked a different day.

Great course

Play this course or it’s your loss. It’s a gem the greens so slick and hard to read but fare. The fairways are well kept The rough is only punishing if you are to wayward we will be back

A beautiful course

We had a super day at South Cliff. The course was in great condition and the layout was excellent. No two holes are the same, lots of elevated tees and great views along the coast. We enjoyed the valley side very much too. Thoroughly recommend. Everyone we met was friendly and helpful.

Glorious Sunshine for

An excellent day at Scarborough South. The weather was perfect! Glorious warm Sunshine with very little breeze! Every hole has something to think about, perfectly positioned hazards to catch you out if a little wayward. A lovely mix of Parkland with 6 cliff top holes thrown into the mix! Tee boxes, fairways and greens were excellent and consistent but the bunkers were a little ragged and unkept, no nice edges and were overgrown on the faces. All in all a fab day out, but I can imagine it’s a very tough knock when the weather turns and the wind is off the sea! Well worth a visit!

This course is brilliant location

We played this course for the first time and were not disappointed, the course was in beautiful condition and the views from the coast side holes overlooking Scarborough are brilliant.
The inland holes are challenging and tested our skills, we had to play with 2 other golfers to make a fourball and no disrespect to the guy's but they were slow players and this took the edge off the game, we both play off 18 and can usually get round in three and a half hours this round took four and a half, one consolation the weather was beautiful.
Would certainly recommend this course and we will be returning some time in the future.

Stunning views

This is a very nice course to play with the added bonus of some great views of the Yorkshire coast and Scarborough. Once you cross over the road there are some lovely holes. The 5th tee has terrific views from an elevated position. This inspired me to play some lovely golf on these coastal holes.

Review

Scarborough South Cliff GC is a lovely and challenging course.
However, we were told on arrival that the Golf Club had no benefits from us booking via Golf Now and it would be cheaper to book direct with the Golf Club.
A few days after playing our round, Golf Now were advertising Scarborough South at £18 pp per round much to our annoyance.
I would be very reluctant to book with Golf Now in the future.
