Whitby Golf Club
Feel like indulging in your favorite sports when visiting Whitby? You will be happy to know that Whitby also has a golf club. Located along the coastline between Whitby and Sandsend, the 18-hole Whitby Golf course enjoys an impressive position on the edge of the cliffs.
Established in 1892, the club is perfect for golfers of all levels. Neither too long or too difficult, the course still requires golfers to be quite accurate, especially in condition of strong wind. Many believe that the most striking feature of the course is the Upgang Ravine, which needs to be driven when playing the 6th and 18th holes.
Should you feel skimpish, the club’s restaurant is catered by none other than the Raithwaithe Estate, which means you should expect a feast.
