At South Cliff Golf Club, not only do we pride ourselves on being 'the friendly club' but we also offer a superb combination of excellent facilites and a spectacular course with open views out to sea.


Welcome to Scarborough South Cliff Golf Club

Host Club, Men's English Amateur Championship, 2016


The Course

The course falls into two parts, divided by the main road from Scarborough to Filey. On the seaward side of the road lie the fourth to tenth holes. On the land-ward side the first three holes and the last eight are laid out along the bottom of the rolling valley stretching southwards into the hills and on the slope of the ridge to the East.

The greatest charm of the course is the glorious situation of the holes on the cliff, looking down on the South Bay and Scarborough Town on the one side and along the bold and rugged coastline towards Filey on the other. The two parts of the course make a pleasant contrast and both provide some excellent golf.

The turf, even on the cliffs, is of the down-land rather than the seaside type and provides excellent lies for the fairway wood slots.

A great attraction to visitors is the inspiring view of the shore and sea. An exhilarating fresh breeze is never wholly absent even on the calmest of days and which at other times can add a new hazard to the testing quality of the course.

Dear Mr Secretary this just a note to thank you and you staff for yet again another excellent a day out at your club.

We appreciate all the work your staff did for us , sorry we missed the pro we usually have a good bit of banter with him.

Just a quick note to say the course was in superb condition last Sunday – 24th of May. The course as usual is a credit to all concerned and that once again we all thoroughly enjoyed the day.

Once again thanks to all concerned for a great day out.

Hope to see you again next May.

What a splendid weekend I had even though I had no 2’s or hole in ones. All the team I encountered were helpful & friendly. Top quality course and greens, your green keepers must be very proud of the course. I loved the layout. Some beautiful holes has to be said. I can’t think if anything bad to say. Oh maybe I lost 1 golf ball. Weather was great, you must have ordered that.

I will hopefully play again next year. Thanks again for great time.

Just a quick email to say “thanks”… we had a lovely day (in spite of the inclement weather!!) our friends enjoyed your course as much as we did. We did sneak in the prizes at 5th… to many poor putts !

The food was delicious so praise to you caterers.

Hope to visit again next year.
