Welcome to The City of Newcastle Golf Club
I am delighted and honoured to be the Men’s Captain of The City of Newcastle Golf Club, I have had the pleasure of being a member here for 20 years.
The club was founded in 1891, moving to our current location in 1906, we are situated 3 miles north of Newcastle. It’s location and easy access from the A1 motorway, makes it ideal for a visit.
The course is a fantastic lay out, designed by Harry Vardon it offers a true test to golfers of all standards.
The past two years have been very challenging for all clubs and we are in the privileged position of having gone from strength to strength with the work of Craig Parkinson our Head Greenkeeper, who has added wealth of experience and skill to the club. Last season the greens were outstanding, and with a full ‘pre-season’ to prepare Craig expects them to be even better next year!
The clubhouse had a major refurbishment completed in 2019 and now offers modern stylish facilities which rival any in the region. The club is well managed and the 19th hole has a vibrant, welcoming atmosphere for both members and guests. The sun lounge and patio overlooking the 18th hole offers a beautiful spot for a few drinks on a summer’s evening.
We have also enjoyed outstanding playing success recently, winning the Newcastle and District League for a record six times in a row. The team also added the Newcastle and District Players Cup and the Dixon Cup to their collection. There was also outstanding individual success for Andrew Minnikin, Phil Ridden and James Walmsley.
We guarantee a warm welcome at the ‘City’ and I look forward to seeing you in the coming year.
Men’s Captain 2021/22
