Bridlington Area Golf tour 19th - 22nd June 2023


Accomodation:  The  Expanse Hotel, Bridlington

The Expanse  is a hotel with a feel of its own, this may be partly dictated by its superb location, but mostly because it is still owned and managed by the same family that built it.
Here friendly old world courtesy combine with modern facilities for a special break.

Golf Courses

We will be playing at 4 golf courses, Hornsea, Scarborough South, Flamborough Head and Bridlington Links

Hornsea GC

The course is a traditional links design, with the first seven holes running outward towards the iconic water tower. A double loop of five holes, brings the golfer to Hornsea’s famous inward stretch, possibly the finest six finishing holes in the county.

Hornsea is a member of both the Alister MacKenzie and James Braid Golf Associations. Both these famous Golf Course Architects suggested course alterations in the early 1900’s and the club implemented some of their ideas. Due to this we have joined both of their golf societies which enables Hornsea members to enjoy the benefits 

Scarborough South GC

The course falls into two parts, divided by the main road from Scarborough to Filey. On the seaward side of the road lie the fourth to tenth holes. On the land-ward side the first three holes and the last eight are laid out along the bottom of the rolling valley stretching southwards into the hills and on the slope of the ridge to the East.The greatest charm of the course is the glorious situation of the holes on the cliff, looking down on the South Bay and Scarborough Town on the one side and along the bold and rugged coastline towards Filey on the other. The two parts of the course make a pleasant contrast and both provide some excellent golf.The turf, even on the cliffs, is of the down-land rather than the seaside type and provides excellent lies for the fairway wood slots.A great attraction to visitors is the inspiring view of the shore and sea. An exhilarating fresh breeze is never wholly absent even on the calmest of days and which at other times can add a new hazard to the testing quality of the course.

Flamborough Head GC

Thank you for visiting the website of the ‘Friendliest Club on the Coast’. Flamborough Head Golf Club is an 18 hole cliff top links course that has been carefully moulded around the contours of the famous headland which gives the Club its name.

​Experience the game of golf the way it was meant.

​The golf course provides both a good test of your golfing skills and an enjoyable experience for Members and Visitors of all abilities throughout the year. The unwary can be forgiven for standing on the 1st tee and being deceived by the apparent gentleness of the view across the course.
The Course & Clubhouse are surrounded by magnificent and panoramic views of the North Sea including both lighthouses, the original of which, known as the Old Beacon, was built circa 1674, and is the only known example in England and can be found on the course next to the 5th tee.
If you’ve tried the rest, our challenge is for you to try one of the best.
You won’t be disappointed!

Bridlington GC

The 6719 yard, par 72 course has a distinctive links feel and there’s also a driving range and a 9 hole course for those feeling less energetic. The Pure Fitness gym on site is fully air conditioned, with top of the range equipment and weight room and there is a clubhouse and restaurant where you can unwind with a lovely meal and glass of wine (or two).

Situated in the beautiful village of Seahouses on the Northumbrian Coast, offering en suite accommodation with a public lounge bar and restaurant.  Our aim is to make your stay as comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable as possible.
The hotel is central to Seahouses, two minutes walk to the bustling harbour where boat trips to the Farne Islands depart and we are blessed with beautiful beaches and scenery.  We are in the heart of Northumberland which is peppered with historic castles, including Bamburgh, Dunstanburgh and Alnwick.
Our hotel is popular with golf, diving, cycling and walking parties, being ideally situated for several links golf courses, diving parties daily from Seahouses Harbour or nearby Beadnell, is on the Coast & Castles Cycling route and also on the Northumberland Coastal Path.

Goswick Links GC

Tuesday, Tee reserved 10:02

When the celebrated golf writer Bernard Darwin first saw it, he ‘fell deeply in love’. Global Golfer’s Paul Atkinson and his pals call it ‘Valhalla’. English Golf Courses considers it a ‘James Braid masterpiece’. UK Golf Guide rates it a ‘must play’. Golf Empire raves that it’s ‘as good as many of the top links in East Lothian and knocks the socks off many of its southern counterparts’. And Golf Club Atlas states simply, ‘’If this was your regular, you would think you had died and gone to heaven’.

Bamburgh Castle GC

Wednesday, Tee Reserved 11:22

Bamburgh Castle Golf Club is often quoted as one of the most scenic golf courses in Britain and with views of Lindisfarne, the Farne Islands, the Cheviots and of course Bamburgh Castle, the course is one of the truest links experiences to be had in England.
