Whitley Bay Centre - Town Centre

Distance 3.33 miles (5.32 km)
Whitley Bay was famous for its permanent seaside fairground called The Spanish City, which was demolished for redevelopment in the late 1990s. The Fairground returns to the town on Bank Holiday weekends, but is now located on 'the Links', an expansive seafront park adjacent to the former Spanish City site. The fabulous Spanish City Dome is to become the centre piece of a multimillion pound regeneration of the sea front, which will include hotel and leisure developments. The Dome has had a number of uses over the years as a Ballroom, Amusement Arcade, and Laserquest. Most recently it became a live music venue playing host to several bands including an appearance by Ash in 2001. Also in the town is Saint Mary's lighthouse.

Distance 4.22 miles (6.75 km)
The course is situated about 1 mile north from the centre of Whitley Bay, a quarter of a mile from the North Sea and about 10 miles north east of Newcastle upon Tyne. Whitley Bay is an 18 hole links type course. It is of championship/county standard and is not really a happy hackers type of golf course. Over the past winters a lot of work has gone into improving & filling in many of the bunkers as well as adding a few more humps. To get you warmed up before you tee-off there is a practice putting green beside the clubhouse, a practice chipping area in front of the car park and a brand new Net to the left of the first tee.
