Yorkshire Coast Golf is proud to work with Filey Golf Club

Filey Golf Club is a beautiful well established course.  It was established in 1897. The original course was situated on land to the north of this fine old East 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. Examples of his design features can be seen on the course at Filey Golf Club. Other famous designers have also had a hand in making Filey Golf Club what it is today.

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.  These were generally with his fellow Channel Islander Fred Beck, the Filey Club Professional.

The course at Filey Golf Cub has been modified over the years.  This has mainly been to take into account modern technology.  However the course at Filey Golf Club 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. Hence Filey Golf Club also has an “Academy” course.  It is still being developed.  It is however, proving popular with beginners and visitors who do not wish to play the main course.

Be assured however that all bookings with Yorkshire Coast Golf represent the use of the full 18 hole course at Filey Golf Club.

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 at Yorkshire Coast Golf look forward to welcoming you also. We know that you will enjoy Filey Golf Club.

Some of the views over the north sea from the course at Filey Golf Club are spectacular.  They are certainly well worth the walk.
