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 over 40 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.
Earlier this year we were delighted to appoint our new head green keeper Craig Parkinson, he brings a 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 has recently undergone a major refurbishment, and now offers enhanced facilities and a vibrant atmosphere for both members and guests. The sun lounge and patio overlook the 18th hole, a beautiful spot for a few ‘19th’ drinks on a summer’s evening.
We have also enjoyed outstanding playing success recently, becoming English Champion Club for the second time, and this year capping it off with a fantastic win at the European Finals. Thanks to our European Champs: Phil Ridden, Alex Dixon and Andrew Minnikin and Immediate Past Captain Simon Coultas.
We guarantee a warm welcome at the ‘City’ and I look forward to seeing you in the coming year.
Men’s Captain 2019/20
