Played at a weekend, off winter tees, with questionable quality greens, and was charged £18 for the privilege, and that was with a member. Add to that excessive charges for everything else, and you get the feeling the place exists to generate as much dosh, as quickly as possible. The course is alright in the winter, but not a patch...

This has to be one of the most scenic courses in NE England with Dunstanburgh Castle towering over the farthest southern part of the course. The course is pleasant to play. It is wide enough not to be annoying but tough enough not to be boring either. Some holes are joyful. The third has a tee shot over a hillock... More

Not much parking near by in busy seasons but plenty up the hill... More

Felt that our custom wasn't wanted, staff too busy talking too each other. I could only have a cup of coffee as didn't cater for gluten free diets

OK the course condition is not mint but the location overlooking the huge beach and Dunstanburgh Castle cannot be bettered. The ladies who run the clubhouse are extremely friendly and knowledgeable and the rates provide good value for money. Overall, a great place to play links golf.

We just popped in here for lunch before going for a walk on the beach. The eating area is plain but pleasant enough. The lady serving had a really surly attitude, really unfriendly. She managed to take our order and payment without hardly speaking, let alone smiling. We both had vegetable soup which was tasty but quite salty and came... More

Decent pub snacks at a reasonable price. Nice to sit outside. Didn't play golf, just wanted a drink and some eats after a long walk from the Castle. Cheery staff.
