Our Course was designed by Frank Pennick an English international golfer, twice winner of the English Amateur Championship - 1937 and 1938. He was a Walker Cup player and English selector and became President of the EGU in 1967. At the time of his death in 1989 he had designed courses around the world, including 28 in Britain and 5 in Portugal.

Frank received implicit instructions from the Committee to design the course in two loops of nine holes with the 1st & 10th tees equidistant from the players entrance.

The 9th & 18th greens overlooked from the Clubhouse balcony giving sweeping views across the playing area. We now have a fine undulating parkland course with views over Teesside and the Cleveland hills.

The lake guarding the 11th green was created when the architect decided that a slow moving sluggish beck would be enhanced by widening it's banks and damming it's outflow. After a tour of inspection golf correspondent Tom Davies described it as 'just a sleepy lagoon but as far as golfers are concerned, as deadly as a tank trap'
