6 reviews of North Shore Hotel and Golf Club
A curious mixture of parkland and links holes, the latter offering the most challenge and excitement. The 5th hole is an excellent SI1.
This is an old fashioned course designed many years ago by my favourite designer James Braid when health and safety were unheard of. This type of design would never be allowed now as several holes, fairways and tees closely intersect and it can be quite a hair raising experience with balls flying in from all directions.
Food and service in hotel excellent. Visitor locker rooms spartan. Societies note - Pro Shop do not accept cheques.
Just returned from our annual golf weekend and after 10 years travelling around the country we found ourselves at The North Shore.
The course was a good challage with the wind coming in off of the sea, the front 9 is mainly parkland and the back 9 links. The links 9 made the better challange and bravery was awarded (we had 6 players make the green in 1 on the par 4 18th ). The only dissapointing thing of the weekend was the atmosphere around the hotel with the golf club members, we felt at times as if we were a hinderence at their golf club, the one thing to remember about The North Shore is it is a golf club with a hotel not a hotel with a golf club.
Played Thursday 10th July using a GreenFree voucher - decent value using the coucher (rating based on this) but i would consider it expensive for the condition of the course at the full rate of £32.
Course is a decent layout with a mix of parkland & links holes - i disagree with most of the other comments in that i thought the parkland holes were better - the links holes are very scabby compared with the other links courses i've played at.
That said, the course is a decent challenge, particularly if you havent played there before as there are number blind shots.
The conditions were quite benign when i played so making the course relatively easy although it would be a difficult course in strong winds as some of the par 4's are quite long.
The bunkering is good and very penal, most are steep faced so if you go in them you'll be going out sideways. The fairways are in good condition (except for the links holes which were poor) and the greens, whilst giving a true roll were slow.
Overall i wouldn't rush back, the course at Sandilands (a few miles up the road near Mablethorpe) is a better conditioned links layout and is considerably cheaper.
We have just returned from our annual trip to North Shore.(25th-27th jan 2008) this was our parties 10th year and my 7th. I dont think you could find a better deal for 2 nights bed, breakfast and evening meal than at North Shore. We have just paid £101.50p for a fantastic weeked, not only golf but the accomodation and the food too. After the weather we had recently we all were wondering what state the course would be in but when we got there ( apart fromn the work they were doing alongside the 1st and 17th fairway) it was in great condition. fair enough we play off the mats every year but i cant remember a green ever been closed. the greens were in good shape again this year. all in all its a lovely course, not too hard but very enjoyable. most of the staff in the hotel are very friendly, the food is excellent and at this price well worth a visit.next years price is about £104, just be aware that after the 25th january next year the price rises to £130 and in the summer it will cost you about £200. you are gambling with the weather but i think its a gamble worth taking.
Feb 2006. Played during an excellent value golf break staying at the ajoining hotel. Course a mixture of links and park land. Links much more interesting, but overall a very enjoyable course that suits all abilities.
Some super holes with blind approach shots, and the condition of the course was very good. I can recommend as part of a golf break, but I think if the price of a day ticket was more than £30 I would be looking elsewhere.
Really enjoyed the course. Good links layout with some interesting short drivable par fours to compensate for those we couldn't even reach in two. Views of the sea from many holes.
The greens were suffering following fusilleum treatment making them quite patchy. Hopefully this would be just a temporary thing. Very good clubhouse/hotel overlooking the ninth, great fish, chips and mushy peas! Excellent course planner and pro shop had some good bargains in clubs.
The wind blew from the north but the sun shone all day. Would definitely consider this course along with Seacroft if you are in the area.
