Whitley Bay Mini Golf & FootGolf has a scenic 9 and 18 hole pitch and putt golf course situated on the Links, Whitley Bay. The course is well kept with challenging bunkers and a coastline boarder. The Golf Course is open from 10:00am until 7:30pm, Monday-Sunday! Whitley Bay Mini Golf & FootGolf also has a FootGolf course. FootGolf combines the unique setting and ideals of golf, with the skill of football. It is the fastest growing sport in the UK!

The facilities also have a 5-hole putting green to practice on and refreshments are available from the clubhouse. There are toilet facilities attached to the clubhouse as well as on-site parking. Whitley Bay Mini Golf & FootGolf have a range of club sizes to cater for juniors and adults as well as left handed clubs. They also provide footballs for FootGolf. Please note we only accept cash when you turn up to play. A debit/credit card system will be installed in the near future.

This review is not for the golf itself but for the way it is run. I went here on a Sunday with my 10 year old son and we parked in the golf car park. I paid the fee for both of us which by the way is cash only as stated on the website. Then I saw a parking... More

I arrived at 1800hrs last night with my family to be told the course was closing, I pointed out the website states 1930 to which I was told well its wrong. What makes matters worse I called several times that day via the telephone number on the website to get no answer. After several minutes of discussing my disappointment at... More

Hello The parking system is ran by the council and not by Whitley Bay Mini Golf, so unfortunately we can't do anything about this which is a shame. We are looking at installing a debit/credit card system at Whitley Bay Mini Golf. We will add this to the website so this doesn't happen to anyone else and we are sorry... More

Came to play footgolf with my son and his football team, great idea in a beautiful location. Not sure who had the most fun, the kids or the dad's? Great idea for kids parties, team bonding or just to while away an afternoon.

Spent 3 hours here with the kids today (age 5 and 12). We played FootGolf then pitch and putt. Staff were very helpful and the prices were great £2.80 for kids and £3.80 for adults. There was toilets on site and the clubhouse sold soft drinks and snacks (coffee was lovely). The courses were in excellent condition and the footballs... More

We came across this on Good Friday whilst hunting for fish and chips. I believe mini golf needs to be played whilst at the sea front. When we arrived it was early afternoon and wasn't very busy as it was the first day open for the summer season. My sister and I played and it wasn't very expensive and you... More

Played here 3 times last week with the kids while staying at nearby holiday park which was lacking in entertainment . Courses in good condition and at about 70 to 80 yards a hole a proper pitch and putt rather than mini golf. Well worth a visit

Had a fun hour or so with my 14 year old daughter playing a game of pitch and putt! The course was in good condition for a fun game during the school holidays. Only played crazy golf together before, so this was a great pastime which wasn't too pricey! Helpful member of staff. Drinks available for purchase from kiosk.

It's a nice little feature in whitley bay and the activity is fun to play. The only downside IMO is the cost of the activity as a whole, with £4 to play then £1 to get a tee and scorecard. Then on top of it all paying to pay just Tallys up when playing in a group.

to wear off the drink from the night before whitley bay has a good 18 and 9 hole pitch and putt course to play to get the rid of your hangover and to prepare you for your next pint, nothing to beat good sea breezes to straighten your head.
