Although Scarborough North Cliff Golf Club dates back to 1909, the present course was designed by James Braid and established in 1928. The course starts on the cliff top and then moves inland threading its way between trees and spinneys, with lovely views of the North Yorkshire Moors before returning to the cliff top for the final three holes.

The course is sufficiently undulating to be interesting without being excessively hilly and is a tough but fair test for golfers of all abilities.

With the prevailing wind from the west the first five holes provide a stiff test of golf and par on these holes is a good start.

The short 7th and the par 5s at 8 and 9 provide some respite before the next major test “Amen corner” (10, 11 and 12) is tackled.Hole 10 requires a long straight drive and the 11th is a memorable hole played from an elevated tee over water to a green surrounded by trees.

The 12th is a testing dogleg played around trees to the right to a raised green.The 13th and 14th are birdie chances as the course winds its way back to the 15th tee where once again the sea comes into view.

The homeward run has glorious sea views across the North Bay towards the Castle before arriving back at the Clubhouse where a welcome drink awaits.
