About Us

Whickham Golf Club was founded in 1911 and moved to its present site at Hollinside Park in 1938. Modernisation of the original Crombie Course was completed and opened for play in June 2016. The Hollinside Park Course was extended to become a par 71 for men and a par 74 for ladies. This imaginative layout provides a challenging test for golfers of all abilities. It is an inspirational parkland course with spectacular views along the Derwent Valley. Scoring is determined more by accuracy than length as you plot your way through the tree-lined fairways to target small, tricky greens.


John Paul - PGA Golf Professional
Head PGA Professional at Whickham Golf Club. Having been assistant professional to David Mather at Burgham Park Golf Club for 4 years, I became fully PGA Qualified and moved on to become Head PGA Professional at Whickham Golf Club in Feb 2016. I love working with golfers to assess why they aren't getting the most out of their game. Through a holistic and in depth assessment of your game, course management and practice schedule, I will work with you to improve your game to a level you didn't think was possible. I use a state of the art GC2 Studio to do custom fitting where I am a fitting centre for Titleist, Taylormade, Callaway, Ping and Lynx. I play in the North region PGA tournaments and also enjoy participating in the NE NW PGA Events.
