Drinks on a Hot Day

We stopped off for a cool refreshing drink while out walking. Like most people, we sat outside. The grounds are well-maintained with plenty of tables. A good stopping off point.

We dont play golf. We arrived each time in shorts and waterproofs and no one looked at us snootly. The general public bar area is large and the drinks reasonable. The food is very nice we ate burgers. The golfers have their own little sitting area that looks posh but none of them seemed to mind us in there. If... More

This is 1 of the better links courses my wife and I have played. Basic clubhouse with limited parking but the course was in good nick and at least you can mostly see where you are going

I'm not a golfer but the DCGC has been a haven for a drink and/or a meal for years when walking between Low Newton and Craster. Open to non -members and a really good line in food for refuelling. Most of the golfers seem happy with the course and the views seen when walking along the dunes by the links... More

Played here 8/7/15, staff were friendly, no real pro shop which let it down, but the course was immaculate! Greens were perfect, every hole is a typical links challenge! Bunkers were immaculate! Plenty of walkers who were polite and courteous when teeing off! Thouroghly enjoyable round!!

Its nice to see a golf club which is open to non-members. We just stopped for a coffee and a bite to eat and very nice it was too. Friendly staff. The golf course looked good too. Worth a visit.

One of the best courses in Northumberland, if anything just for some of the views, they are absolutely fantastic. It's quite hilly so we often get buggies, but we keep coming back year after year as part of our annual golf trip. There's no clubhouse which is strange, everything is done from the bar. Overall though, it's a must for... More

What a place to play golf.... Amazing scenery, tricky holes as been on the coast. Well worth a round on here although be prepared for the wind along the cliff tops. The clubhouse is great with a good variety of food and drink and the staff are warm and welcoming.
