Beverley & East Riding Golf Club
Beverley and East Riding Golf Club was formed in 1889 – making it the oldest inland club in Yorkshire!
The club is based on the glorious Beverley Westwood pasture land, famous for its landmark Black Mill and Anti-Mill, which our traditional-style Clubhouse is built around.
The 18-hole course is one of Yorkshire’s finest and most natural layouts, enjoying outstanding views of the town and surrounding countryside from many vantage points.
The club is adhering to government and England Golf Union COVID-19 restrictions and advice for playing safe golf.
Visitors are welcome at selected times, and we require you to adhere to safe golf COVID-19 restrictions.
Beverley and East Riding Golf Club is Safe Golf accredited
Beverley & East Riding Golf Club would like to thank and acknowledge the support of the following sponsors who are generously helping the Club
As you are all aware, the Government has eased many of the restrictions placed upon us because of the pandemic. England Golf has also updated its guidance to golf clubs.
Having looked at the situation, the Directors have made the following decisions which will be reviewed on a regular basis.
- Bunkers: The current rules regarding bunkers will remain in operation i.e. placing within six inches and leave the bunker as tidy as possible after use. Rakes will not be placed out just yet.
- Flagsticks: England Golf has stated that flagsticks can now be removed. We would request that members leave the flags in.
- Roll-Ups: Again, an emotive subject in view of the removal of restrictions on group numbers. The situation regarding roll-ups will be reviewed as soon as possible and further information released as soon as possible.
Welcome to Beverley and East Riding Golf Club. Founded in 1889, we are the oldest inland golf club in Yorkshire.
Set amongst the rolling pastures of Beverley Westwood in the shadows of Beverley racecourse the course offers superb views towards the town of Beverley and the historic Beverley Minster. Beverley and East Riding Golf Club offers a great test of golf and fantastic value with 18 unique holes which make the most of the natural landscape of the Westwood. Add in the experience of playing golf amongst grazing cattle and playing on some of the best greens in the County, we are sure you will enjoy your game on the Westwood.
If you’re thinking of joining a golf club, I would urge you to look no further than Beverley which we believe represents fantastic value for money. Equally, if you’re looking for somewhere to play as a visitor, we are sure you will find a day on the Westwood a great experience and fantastic value.
We have a well-stocked golf shop and catering is available from the Marne Restaurant in our comfortable bar.
Our highly regarded and experienced PGA professional Paul Gibson will be happy to answer any questions you may have in organising your day out and who knows, he may also unlock the secrets of your golf swing!
I look forward to seeing you out on the course soon. Enjoy your golf.
