Course good fun , Clubhouse very tired

Very windy ( and initially raining ) when we arrived and ultimately only one other group out on the course.
The Club appears to be struggling to survive and the Clubhouse is in a fairly poor state though it has undoubted potential ?
Course itself had mostly coped with the wind and rain and an enjoyable round overall.

Nice Course

Nice welcome in Pro Shop and advised that greens were being fertilized. They had also recently been tined, but were very playable.

Front 9 and last 2 holes are played on the coastal side, with the remainder being more parkland in style.

Course was very quiet so no problem with pace and once we'd oriented ourselves got round quite well - we were unsure of where the 8th fairway ran but this was not an issue.

Did not visit the club house but others on the course were very friendly.

Coastal heaven

fantastic experience from start to finish from the club shop to the members to the club steward. Every new face came with a broad smile and a friendly hello. The course is challenging, well kept yet not too imposing to varying handicaps .

A great holiday course

Play here with the wife every time we visit Whitby and she loves it. Presents a few challenges, particularly the two holes that cross ‘the gorge’, but generally it’s a nice friendly track with lots of run on the fairways plus receptive true running greens and some great sea views.

Always get a good friendly reception at the pro shop and the members are also friendly & helpful. Bar doesn’t seem to be open late afternoon but is through lunchtime. Food is Ok.

Overall a very nice way work up an appetite & justify a couple of beers before your fish & chips.

A BIT OF A CHALLENGE FOR A HIGH HANDICAPPER

but nevertheless it is a great course with some interesting holes and great scenery. Especially nice when the sun shines, which it did eventually for us.

Lovely course in good condition

The course was in good condition and was celebrating its 125 year..... there was a commemorative booklet on arrival. It had a real buzz about the place which made the experience really enjoyable.

Played with 3 friends (who all play off 28) on a golf weekend. A course of two halves, enjoyed the holes overlooking the sea and the great views. Also the 3rd, 5th & 18th where you had to drive over the gap in the cliffs. Holes over the road for me bit less interesting.
Booked tee time as a HOT Deal so just £10 which was an amazing bargain.

Great Headlands Course

We play this course every year and love the variety of holes and the challenging greens . The early season greens were Ok fro the time of year , and would love to play them in the height of summer .

The three challenging valley holes look a lot longer than what they are , however a high handicapper golfer can make it over .

Ravine challenge

A brilliant challenging course, especially the 6th and 18th where your tee shot has to clear a ravine. Greens were good and fairways forgiving, as long as you landed on them. Need to take a few balls, just in case. Bunkers need work on, but it was October and the sand was wet.
