A Course To Be Savoured
Created in 1930 and redesigned in 1938 by the renowned golf course architect Arthur Day, the course has undergone continuous development to increase its appeal to golfers of all abilities. Measuring 6378 yards from the white tees, 6042 yards from the yellows and 5421 yards from the red tees, it has a Par of 71 (72 from the red tees).
By modern standards Catterick is not a long course but is subtly protected by contoured greens, a smallish number of well-placed bunkers, natural hazards and clever design so that a good golfing brain is required if a low score is to be achieved. The different tee positions provide a rewarding test of skill for all standards of golfer.
In addition to intriguing golf, on a clear day, there are spectacular views towards Teesside and the Cleveland Hills. The course itself is situated on a combination of moorland and parkland with many fairways lined by mature oaks, elms, copper beeches and conifers.
In short, Catterick is a golfing gem and a course you can play over and over again without ever becoming bored.
