Whickham Golf Club was founded in 1911 and moved to its present site at Hollinside Park in 1938. The lodges at the club entrance marked one of the main entrances to Gibside Estate.

This excellent parkland course leaves a lasting impression on visitors; set in the beautiful Derwent Valley it has outstanding views of scenic countryside, extending to the Cheviots in the north. The acclaimed architecture of Gibside Hall and its Orangery, and the romantic ruins of Hollinside Hall provide a historic backdrop. Visitors will be enthralled by the views, peace, tranquility and wildlife which enhances the golf course. This is a course to be enjoyed all year round

Refinements to the course completed in 2016 produced the Hollinside Park course that we play today. The project was designed by Andrew Mair & Mark James’ Golf Design & Management Company. Successfully creating a layout that reflects the character of the original course, and provides a testing but fair examination that rewards accuracy over power.

Support from Sport England enabled the Club to expand its practice facilities. The result has provided an indoor Swing Studio with its GC2 Simulator where Club PGA Professional John Paul delivers lessons and club fitting all year around. Additionally, there is a 3 bay, covered driving range and short game practice area close to the clubhouse.

House Manager, Stephen Fawcus and his team will ensure that your clubhouse experience is all it should be. The Clockburn Restaurant caters for up to 100 seated or 150 for an informal Buffet.
