A Good Day in Bad Weather

It’s the first time playing the curse and I’ll be back again for sure. The course was in great condition, the greens were fast despite the rain and I was impressed at the condition of the tee box on every hole. It’s a great course with some fantastic views.

Really Enjoyable

Great and fair course, good mix of hole lengths. Lovely greens although a couple on the slow side. Really busy though and did feel a little rushed at times despite only taking 3h 20m for a 3-ball. Magnificent views of the region. Excellent value for money, will return

Enjoyable Round

Nice course with beautiful views.
Pce of play was a little slow but after a few holes we were waved through.
Course conditions were excellent, drainage seemed good as it had rained all day but the sun was out when we teed off. Layout was great for a golfer of my ability although some of the tee boxes could have been signposted for golfers new to the course.
Staff were friendly and helpful.
I did not use the off-course amenities therefore I can only give an average rating which i'm sure they are better than

Nice course poor green keepers

Nice course in good condition just a shame I could only play 16 holes due to green keepers parking right in front of green then once I moved to next hole they then decided to drive to that green and do the same again

Good course, great greens

Greens and fairways in great condition. Greens were a good challenge too. Couple of little bits of confusion finding next tee but got there in the end. Could do with more 150 markers too but both minor gripes and all of our group enjoyed the course and the views

Great Golf Course and Views

I played South Shields today for the first time. The course was in good condition with good greens and fairly dry fairways, which after yesterday's heavy and prolonged rain was quite a surprise. The course layout is good and I really enjoyed the round. The course was very busy so as a two ball we teamed up with a single member who was friendly and good company. Thanks Dave for the company and the advice.
It's a really nice course set on top of the Cleadon Hills with extensive views of the coast and surrounding area, if I had a choice between this and the golf course next door I would choose this one every time.
I will play this again soon.

Great course

First time visitors and we were not disappointed. The course was in great condition with some of the best greens we have played on in the NE. Everyone from the ProShop to the clubhouse and members were exceptionally friendly and welcoming. We will be back.

Brilliant

A brilliant course in better condition than any I’ve played over the winter/spring so far. Greens are lighting and excellent. Has half a dozen superb holes. First time playing the course and invited to join Jimmy and Dave on the second to speed up play. Really friendly members and made the day all the more enjoyable. Highly recommended. Apparently Lee Westwood was here the week before he headed out to the world matchplay. Be back again soon!
