City of Newcastle Golf Club, Town Moor Course. 

The club was founded in 1891. 

From 1891 to 1907 the City of Newcastle Golf Club played on an eighteen-hole course on the Town Moor.

It was reported in November 1891 that a City of Newcastle Golf Club had been formed and there is a membership of nearly 200. The course is on the Town Moor.

From the Scottish Referee Monday September 26th 1892; “The City of Newcastle Golf Club opened their new course on the Town Moor, Newcastle, on Wednesday. Three competitions were held, and the splendid new premises recently erected by the members were thrown open for the first time. The game has caught on in this district.”

The course on Town Moor was laid out by Old Tom Morris.
