Filey Golf Club - The Course

 

 

Filey Golf Club was established in 1897. The original course was situated on land to the north of this fine old North Yorkshire fishing town.

The course moved to its present site on the south side of town two years later. The design of the "new links" is credited to James Braid and examples of his design features can be seen on the course.

It has been suggested that Dr. Alister Mackenzie, during his period of residence in Leeds, made amendments to the original design.

During his period as club professional at nearby Ganton, Harry Vardon would often play challenge matches over the Filey Course with his fellow Channel Islander Fred Beck, the Filey Club Professional.

The course has been modified over the years to take into account modern technology but still retains the original Braid layout.

The purchase of adjoining land has allowed the club to incorporate a 9 hole short course into its facilities. This "Academy" course continues to be developed but is proving popular with beginners and visitors who do not wish to play the main course. (Separate membership is available for the Academy Course at greatly reduced rates to encourage newcomers to our great game.)

The old clubhouse has been replaced with a modern building to cater for the needs of members and visitors.

The welcome you receive at Filey Golf Club has not changed over the years. We hope you will continue to visit our fine Club and Course.
