8 reviews of Scarborough North Cliff Golf Club
we played here on the 1st may on our 4th day of our scarborough trip and its still the stand out course for me even though it felt more like 1st january on the day.
windy, cold and a little bit of rain didnt stop the course from looking as beautiful as it was when we first played it the july before.
the greens were immaculate and a pleasure to putt on and the general presentation was picture perfect.
my one gripe would be the rough really. there wasnt any sort of semi rough on the day and the ball was pretty much either on the fairway or in the cabbage and getting out of it was TOUGH, especially with the rain! it was extremely penal to say the least but it still didnt stop me from enjoying the course.
im still not convinced by the 18th if im honest and the holes over the road luckily make up for it. i have to say i enjoyed the 1st and second more than i did the first time i played it last year and its only really the last 3 holes that dont do a lot for me.
course was tip top, friendly members and staff again and nice homemade soup after a playing on a stunning course! what more could you ask?
play it if you get the chance!
overall 8.5 out of 10
Played this week on our golf trip. 2nd play here and again a joy to play as per my previous report. Greens were perfect, the weather was not but the course makes up for that. I still think the club should look at having the final holes changed as the 18th does nothing for me, you only have to play South Cliff to compare there's no comparison. I would personally have the 16th as the finishing hole at North Cliff (more area to play with to make it something to remember) have the 18th as the 16th, keep the 17th as it is and have the current 16th as the finishing hole. Still a great track non the less, I will return.
played here on wednesday 24th July and i have to say with the exception of the last 3 holes this could be one of the best courses ive had the pleasure of playing on in england!
the 1st couple of holes are nice holes but once you cross the road and play the 3rd through to the 15th you are in for a golfing treat.
dont think for one second that this is a links golf course because its not - its mature parkland with undulating fairways, well placed hazards and very well established trees that line the fairways making it imperative to keep your drives straight! the course isnt the longest but the fact its so tightly tree lined makes it just as much of a challenge and will test your long AND short game.
i couldnt say i had one favourite hole although the par 3 11th and the par 5 8th stick in the memory but like ive said every single hole over the road are superb.
the last 3 holes are a little bit "bland" (especially after playing the previous holes) and its definately the weakest part of the course which is a shame.
overall its a fantastic course with friendly members and a great helpful pro. the bar staff are also lovely and the views from the patio are superb.
one final thing i would say is please dont spend too much time looking at the website as it does the course no justice at all and just get yourself along to north cliff for a game. you wont regret it and if i lived within a 30 mile radius of it i would become a member today! as it is i live north of newcastle but would travel the 2 hour drive to play the course again tomorrow!

Played here on 24 July 2013 on a free invite. Having looked on the course website the previous year regarding a possible society trip to this part of the country, I was unsure what to expect. I was not disappointed, brilliant course, lovely sandwich in clubhouse before play (all food very reasonably priced) the course itself starts on the cliff side with 2 holes taking you up and across a road to the 3rd, this part of the course from the 3rd to 15th greens is superb, loads of mature trees, and undulations make you think your way around. You return over the road to finish 16 to 18 which are a bit up and down which is the only negative I would say there is if any. Brill view from patio area overlooking beach and decent pint. I am now again looking at a 5 day trip to the area with North Cliff being one course that will definately feature, cant wait to play it again.
Played at North Cliff twice this weekend. The course was in excellent condition especially given the amount of snow and rain recently. There were only two temp greens, the rest being in excellent condition.
My main point is the friendliness of the staff and members. We were made to feel very welcome and had good banter with members.
I would HIGHLY recommend Scarborough North Cliff. If you want a good pint of real ale after your round, the Old Scalby Mills is literally round the corner - ask anyone at the club.
Played North Cliff for the first time in five years and was amazed at the imporved state of the course
The greens were excellent and the course was extremely well maintained.
Excellent value for money
Took a party of 8 medium to high handicappers to North Cliff on 7th June 2004 as part of our "world tour of Yorkshire". Found the course in excellent condition and we all really enjoyed the experience. Conditions were calm during our visit but I reckon it could become a lot more interesting when the wind blows.
We had a fine day out at this welcoming course. The well-kept greens are quite slick, with some tricky undulations. The best part of the course lies over the main road, with some superb driving holes and some difficult par threes.
Accuracy off the tee is well rewarded on most of the parkland holes but don't disregard the seemingly featureless holes leading down to the clifftop. These can be lethal, as I found to my cost.
Not to be missed, if you're golfing in the area.
Our day there was smoothly organised by Rob of the Croft Hotel, Scarborough.
