Westray.

Westray Golf Club. Instituted 1899.  A 9 hole course at Breckowall, a quarter of a mile from the village centre and a mile from Gill Pier.

    “Westray has had a nine hole course since last century, and during recent years, interest in it has been maintained and increased. This is a typical seaside course, with an undulating surface on a sandy soil, and a wide burn running through the centre which has to be negotiated four times on the present layout, providing a real sporting element. The main hazards, apart from the burn, are rabbit scrapes, but these can be avoided by local expertise. At five holes a wooden club is necessary for the second stroke.”

   “A seaside course, 2,001 yards Par 35. Amateur record 35.” (SGC Mar 1947).
