Golf - 18 hole

Details

The Bridlington Links boasts a fine 6719 yard golf course with a distinctive 'links feel' and breathtaking views of Bridlington Bay and the town. The par 72 course offers spectacular holes along the cliff tops and Danes Dyke.

3rd Par Five
This is our signature hole. In other words the one people remember the most. The trick here is to play towards the pond trying to drop just in front or ideally just beyond it.

You’re next shot is equally challenging with another pond positioned just to you’re right. We recommend that you try to avoid this! This is a real “Brid Links Special”. If you’re not on form – bring a snorkel!

4th Par Three
This hole has seen considerable upgrading with a new back tee increasing the length to 177 yards. Another challenging one with a seemingly simple priority on your tee shot of avoiding the bunkers. Do this and par isn’t out of the question. But, of course, you do have to tackle the other feature of this hole, the two tier “Mackenzie Green”.

9th Par Four
We regard this as the courses fourth hardest shot.

Off the tee, aim to hit the shot around 200 yards which should settle you nicely in front of the pond. Hopefully, your next shot will take you over the water leaving you nicely placed for the green.

Sounds easy, but this is generally viewed as the fourth toughest hole of the course and very tricky for higher handicappers.

13th “Dane’s Dyke” Par Five
As the name indicates, this hole is directly parallel with Dane’s Dyke, recently forwarded as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Yorkshire. The key to this tee shot is to avoid some 6 bunkers positioned sporadically along the fairway. Successfully overcome these and you’ll need to get your approach shot between a further three bunkers to reach a very small green. Not surprisingly, it’s bunkered to the left and right.

15th Par Four
With an unremitting wind that comes swirling over the east coast cliff tops, this 411 yard hole can really test your metal! It offers an ominous start, with the likelihood of playing into the wind with a tee off into the unknown as the ball lands in a wicked dip. Ideally you want to be landing the ball between the two bunkers so your best approach is to “scuttle” a low drive beneath the prevailing winds.

If all goes well you should be well placed to aim for the middle of the green. However, be very careful – go left or long and your ball could well end up in a fishing coble!

A great chance to see off the worst the Yorkshire coast can throw at you!

16th Par Four
As with the 15th, you’re playing into a prevailing wind and this hole is slightly longer at 430 yards with a cluster of bunkers on the right hand side.

A useful tip is to aim towards the distant church spire in Bridlington town centre preferably driving with a fairway wood or long iron. A technique many pros and respected amateurs swear by!


18th “Home Hole” Par Four
This is a claustrophobic, leafy, enclosed hole that’s full of character and deceptively long at 400 yards.

Thread the ball through the banks of trees hitting 240-250 yards off the tee. That should leave you with a medium iron to the red flag which you will have to address slightly blind.

Watch out for the hidden lake on the left-hand side before the green, that transgresses onto the fairway.

This is a great hole that has a double joining fairway with the 10th and plenty of “clatterers” against the trees in the infamous “Geoff’s Wood”!
