Original design by Harry Vardon

Boldon Golf Club was founded in 1912 with the original 'Old Vale Course', a 9 hole layout. The club moved to its present site in 1926 when six time Open Champion, Harry Vardon, was commissioned to design a course on the site occupied to this day. Boldon is one five courses in the north east of England laid out by Vardon during his latter years.
As the course has evolved it now measures 6414 yards from the Medal tees with a par of 72 covering gentle terrain that includes areas of both scientific and geological special interest.


The course now has new yardage posts in place as follows;
Blue post 200 yards
Yellow post 150 yards
Red post 100 yards
All measurements are to the middle of the green
