Whickham Golf Club is on the cusp of achieving something very special and is preparing to celebrate its 100th year in existence. A stellar accomplishment and one that highlights the clubs continued commitment to providing a high standard of golf. Few make it to their centenary and there is one simple fact that separates clubs like Whickham and the rest: they know how balance history with a desire to keep their golf relevant in the modern game.
Indeed, some of the clubs buildings are listed as places of special architectural interest, however on the course changes have seen its reputation grow.
The contoured greens and have been shaped to test putting abilities to the full, whilst the strategically placed sand traps will have you scratching your head as you try to negotiate them.
The closing hole is a real beauty and highlights just why this club is now in its 100th year. Running parallel to the Clockburn stream, the hole plays on this proximity as you approach the immaculate green. A tricky proposition, just one of many on a course that shows no signs of slowing down.
