Captains Message

Welcome to Whitburn Golf Club, and this the official website of our club. We hope you find the site useful and we look forward to you coming to play on our course. We pride ourselves on being a friendly and welcoming club, and have good facilities to make your day enjoyable.

You will see photographs of the course elsewhere in this website, but they do not match, what we feel is a truly picturesque course. The course itself is forgiving for those with a tendency of playing wayward shots. Some years ago we undertook the plantation of some 6000 trees, and those in the line of play are only now starting to feature on certain holes.

The course itself is well maintained, and the greens are renowned throughout the county. Good drainage on the course means we are normally open when other clubs are closed. There are panoramic views to the North, South, East and West from certain points on the course, but the real feature is left till the last hole. Standing on the 18th tee you get a good 360 degree view North up to the Farne Islands, West to the Cheviot Hills, South to Teeside and East lies the North Sea. On fine clear days the view is tremendous.

I would like to wish all guests and visitors a memorable day at Whitburn and hope you enjoy our course as much as we the members do.

Finally, can I re-emphasise three important key points when playing the course. Please try to avoid slow play, replace any divots you may take when playing, and repair pitch marks on the greens.
