Golf Breaks


The Little Haven Hotel is affiliated with Whitburn Golf Club. Discounted rates are available. Please contact hotel for more information. 

Whitburn Golf Course 

Hole no.12 is stroke index one and it merits it. This hole is the definitive hole on the course, at 435 yds it is quite long but drives are often assisted by the prevailing wind. 

Unusually there is out of bounds within the course on the right, over the dry stone wall. 

The second shot is all carry, over the green, many of the local members lay up hoping to achieve par with a single put, not always possible with the considerable slope on the green. 

Holes: 18 
Yardage: 5900 
Par: 69 
SSS: 68 

Course design: Colt, Alison & Morrison
