Played here on Wednesday 31st August. Enjoyed the course, some tough holes and a couple of blind shots. Greens were true and quick which you would expect with its location. Fairways were not fantastic but didn't spoil the course. Some good holes here, the par 3's are a challenge, and can imagine they can be tough in the wind. I particularly like holes 9, 10 and 11, they are a nice trio of holes which are good for scoring but have well place bunkers to catch you out.
Will return in the future for another game at this course.
myself and 2 friends played here on Friday 28th January and for the time of year the course was in very good condition.
we were told on arrival that there was 3 temporary greens in play which was a little bit of a shame as there hadnt been any frost for several days, but it didnt really take anything away from an enjoyable days golf.
we enjoyed a nice brew before we played in the clubhouse which in all fairness could maybe use a little bit of an update but nothing much to complain about and all the staff were very friendly and accommodating.
the course itself is a parklands course with a little feel of a links thrown into the mix. it is located on the back of whitburn g.c. which is another cracking little course in the area, so the locals are really spoilt for choice.
there were several notable holes and its a course i would happily go back and play again in the summer. i would definately recommend a visit if your in the vacinity.
overall 7 out of 10
Played here on Friday 28 Jan 2011, What a good course, some cracking holes. Course backs onto Whitburn Golf Club which I have yet to play so plumped for this one. Good greens for time of year, Par 3's are challenging, can imagine this being a toughy in the wind, we never had a drop. Old but quaint clubhouse, friendly pro & staff and a course I would definately return to in the Summer
Played midweek with a mate who's a member, cost only £12, great value at that price. Course is situated at the top of a hill, with good views of the Tyne and the Wear.
Wind was blowing, not too strong, but it still made for some tough holes. Course was in good condition, greens were true and fast with enough slopes for me, had a good day.
Was welcomed in the clubhouse afterwards, friendly staff and good food at a good price.
Our society played a round at South Shields Golf Club on 3rd May 2009. South Shields is described by some golf guides as a links course, but its more a mixture of links and heathland. Its on the top of a hill and very near the cliffs so the wind can be an issue and as it turned out the wind did affect a few shots. The club house at first glance looks its age, but inside the bar and members bar are well decorated, drinks are reasonably priced too. The round was £22 each.
Back to the golf, the course is well known locally for having excellent drainage as its on the limestone cliffs so any standing water vanishes quickly. Our day was dry so no issues in that area. The first hole is a par 3 with four well placed bunkers just short of the green. These bunkers are deep too so a good first shot is required. Many of us tried too hard to hit the green in 1 shot and ended up in the sand or OOB.
Hole 5 is a longer par 3 at 185 yards and 6 bunkers protecting the green, this hole is tends to draw shots to the right and into the rough. Not an easy hole.
The Stroke Index 1 hole is a real pain, its an uphill drive, and for most the second shot is uphill and blind. The fairway is narrow and the rough is very rough. Once up the hill its a downhill shot to the green.
The last for the front 9 is a short par 4 and for anyone with an accurate first shot can land the ball just short of the green an just a pitch on.
The 13th hole is the highest on the course, the tee box seems to tower down on the green but this can be deceptive. I used a 9 iron and came up short of the green. The wind can be a factor though.
The 18th looks difficult from the tee box, but on reflection a 160 yard drive will get you on the fairway, leaving a second iron shot of 130 yards to meet the green. Play the ball over the gorse bush and land on the fairway. I hooked the shot right beyond the fairway bunker.
All in all the course was very good, greens were true and well kept. Its a difficult course for a beginner, I struggled, not with the long stretches of OOB but the narrow fairways.
Great course, wide fairways, wiked greens and mint condition...bit windy...wouldnt advise the course to someone who cant hit the ball that far as there are average length holes but with the wind they are very long holes for someone who struggles to hit the ball far.
3/5 average course! worth playing if your course is shut as the drainage is class!!!!!!
Excellent course with good greens. the only comparison to links golf however is the very strong winds that I put up with on my visit. It appears to be more parkland/heath and definately wortha visit.
