Some History

Hartlepool Golf Club was established in 1906 and in 2006 celebrated its centenary year.

The course is classified as a links course and is located on the north east coast.

The course, which runs along the coast, has been designed to take advantage of the many natural features. The seaward side is protected by hillocks and dunes covered with marram grass.

James Braid designed some of the holes, the most spectacular being the tenth which requires a straight drive and a good second shot between dunes.

The course measures 6298 yards from the back tees and has a par of 70. Par for Ladies is 72, on a course which measures 5562 yards.

The course record of 62 was recorded on 8 August 1997, by professional golfer Graeme Storm, the 1999 British Amateur Champion, who learned the game there.

The course began as a rough, 9-hole course at Hart Old Village, where the land was rented from W Purves for £10 per year. Mr. Purves was the club's first Captain and John Gardner was its first President. The Gardner Cup is still one of the club's major trophies.

In 1907 the club moved to its current location at Hart Warren, where a grassed railway embankment conceals the course from the rest of the town. The annual subscription was £1, with an entrance fee of £1.
