Overview

Open from 1st April 2017, Whitley Bay Mini Golf & FootGolf has a scenic 9 and 18 hole pitch and putt golf course situated on the Links, Whitley Bay. The course is well kept with challenging bunkers and a coastline boarder. The Golf Course is open from 10:00am until 7:30pm, Monday-Sunday! Whitley Bay Mini Golf & FootGolf also has a FootGolf course. FootGolf combines the unique setting and ideals of golf, with the skill of football. It is the fastest growing sport in the UK! Why not try it for a team building day, birthday party or simply a way to stay active? We have an interesting 9 hole lay out measuring over 900 yards that is set in a stunning coastal landscape. The facilities also have a 5-hole putting green to practice on and refreshments are available from the clubhouse. There are toilet facilities attached to the clubhouse as well as on-site parking. Whitley Bay Mini Golf & FootGolf have a range of club sizes to cater for juniors and adults as well as left handed clubs. They also provide footballs for FootGolf. Please note we only accept cash when you turn up to play. A debit/credit card system will be installed in the near future. There is also a car park at Whitley Bay Mini Golf & FootGolf but you must pay for parking by ringing the code on the ticket machine. Keep up to date with all the latest information by liking the Whitley Bay Mini Golf & FootGolf page on Facebook.

Came to play footgolf with my son and his football team, great idea in a beautiful location. Not sure who had the most fun, the kids or the dad's? Great idea for kids parties, team bonding or just to while away an afternoon.
