The Club was formed on 4th June 1892 at a meeting in Lockharts Cocoa Rooms in Clayton Street, Newcastle. The first records in the Golfing Journal of the time show it as being named NEWCASTLE UNITED WORKMEN’S GOLF CLUB which signified that it was for the benefit of all classes, not only the rich and titled, and the spirit of friendship continues to this day.
Many people believe that we have connections with the other club of that name namely, the football club. Although it is true that many of the footballers have played the course and still do.
Situated only 5 minutes drive from the city centre, Newcastle United Golf Club is regarded as one of the premier clubs in the area.
The course was originally designed by Tom Morris and has matured since its’ conception in 1892. Measuring just over 6600 yards from the medal tees and with a par of 72, the course has proved to be a challenging but fair test of golf and boasts some of the longer par fives in the area.
