In 2001 the members took over the running of the Club from Wansbeck District Council and in 2008 purchased the Club outright from the Council. In the last 10 years the Club has invested some £400,000 on course and clubhouse improvements. In 2011 the Club hosted the Northumberland County Championship which is a measure of the progress made by the Club.
Situated 1/2mile south of Bedlington town centre on the A1068, the course is easily accessible.
The course is parkland measuring 6813 yards, par 73, standard scratch 73, and can prove a real test of golf, particularly in windy conditions. All but 3 holes were part of the former opencast coal site. A large number of conifer and deciduous trees and shrubs have been planted which have now matured giving beautiful tree lined fairways. The course demands good straight drives and accurate iron play into tight and bunkered greens.
The facilities include generous practice areas for putting, chipping and bunker shots and a separate practice area for general irons and woods practice. Experienced pro shop staff, excellent catering and a warm welcome awaits you at Bedlingtonshire Golf Club.
