Petition Launched To Save Whitby Golf Club

Petition Launched To Save Whitby Golf Club

Published by Karen Liu at 6:01am 6th November 2019.

A petition has been launched to save Whitby Golf Club.

It is claimed Scarborough Borough Council wants to take back the land for development.

It says the club has gone into debt with the money being owed to the authority for rent.

Steve Ellis, former Captain and Director, said:

"Some members are concerned that our 18 hole course will drop by at least half.

So I think there'll be less people visiting Whitby to play golf and I think that's a view that's held by quite a few people in the club."

Steve said the location of Whitby Golf Club is good:

"Anybody who's played the course in the last few years will know if they go onto what's known as the 'new land'.

You stand upon the 12th tee on a sunny spring, summer, or autumn day and it's like being in Spain.

You've got some of the best views around here and those will vanish."

The council has been approached for comment.
