Hornsea Golf Club was established as a members' club in 1898 and moved to its present site in 1908. The course was designed by Sandy Herd and subsequently modified in its early years by Dr Alistair Mackenzie and James Braid. Further alterations, notably to the 13th hole, were made in the early 1990s.
The course is a traditional links design, with the first seven holes running outward towards the iconic water tower. A double loop of five holes, including the signature hole, 11th, brings the golfer to Hornsea's famous inward stretch, possibly the finest six finishing holes in the county.
Being situated on the Yorkshire coast, the course has many features associated with links golf, including extensive gorse and wind-blasted thorn. The terrain is gently undulating parkland with extensive tree belts to shelter the golfer from the stiff breezes, which are commonplace at seaside courses.
There are two practice ranges, one of which is generally in use by the professional for coaching and a large practice putting green and chipping area.
The club has recently engaged Howard Swan, the internationally renowned golf course architect, to make recommendations on the set-up of the course, as part of our ongoing course improvement plan.
