Billingham Golf Club Est. 1967

As most of you will be aware, the new entrance and 'Derek Olley Drive' Signs have now been installed. The club would like thank BGC Member Mick Purcifer and also Ricky & Lee Ward from Xtreme Graphics for all the great work they have done.

I think we can all agree that both signs look fantastic and is fitting of BGC Legend Derek Olley.

BGC - Winter Mats

As of Wednesday 21st October 2020, winter mats will be in play due to to the course being extremely wet. Winter mats are used to protect the course fairways so we limit the damage throughout the wet winter months and leave them in the best condition possible for our excellent Greenkeeping team to maintain heading towards the start of the next golf season.

If you do not own your own winter mat then please take one provided by BGC. These are located at the 1st Tee. However, due to COVID-19 restrictions DO NOT return the mat at the end of your round but retain for future use to eliminate cross contamination.
