About
Alnmouth Golf Club overlooks the splendours of both Foxton and Alnmouth Bay on the Northumberland coastline in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. It is widely regarded as one of the finest golf courses in the North East of England. Although the course has a coastal location it has parkland turf and a reputation for the fine quality of the greens and superb presentation. Recently chosen as one of the TOP 100 HIDDEN GEM golf courses in the UK by Golf Monthly magazine. We are a private members club with active Mens and Ladies sections, friendly clubhouse atmosphere and very strong junior section. Visitors are always given a warm Northumbrian welcome at Alnmouth where we have buggies for hire and first class practice facilities. A special feature of "Foxton", as we are generally known, is a 26-bed Dormy House within the clubhouse offering hotel accommodation, English Tourism 3 Star rating, to groups of visiting golfers in very comfortable twin or single rooms with en suite facilities. We offer a full range of stay and play golfbreaks for groups and couples. SKY SPORTS TV AVAILABLE IN THE CLUBHOUSE. RELAX AFTER A ROUND WATCHING LIVE SPORT AT FOXTON HALL DRIVING RANGE AND FIRST CLASS PRACTICE FACILITIES AVAILABLE

After the lockdown this Sunday Driver was just what we needed. Before arriving we were given clear guidance on what we would need to follow. On arrival the staff were brilliant, got us checked in and settled in our rooms well in advance of our tee off time.

We'd ordered buggies for both days and they were great value for money.

The course was in absolutely fantastic nick and even though the course was just about fully booked there was no waiting around to play your shots and more importantly no one was chasing close behind. The pace of play was spot on (unfortunately the same can't be said for the weather on the Sunday).

The evening meal and breakfast was both absolutely spot on.

We will certainly be back.

Excellent day out, the course was in great condition considering the weather conditions we've been experiencing recently! The food and the atmosphere in the clubhouse were excellent. David in the pro shop was excellent, good to chat to, and extremely knowledgeable. This was money well spent for me and my friends, if I could write 4 different excellent reviews I would.

Booked this 2night 3 rounds golf break on the recommendation of the pro at my home course and I owe him a pint when I see him next!
The hotel and staff were fantastic and couldn't be more helpful. The rooms were spot on and the food and drink on offer would be hard to beat at any golf club.
The course was a revelation. It was immaculate considering the winter and spring we've had and some of the holes were a joy to look at nevermind play.
As a two ball playing amongst fourballs we found the alleged "geriatric" members to be some of the nicest most accomodating people I've ever met on a golf course.
Just booked for next June and can't wait to open my shoulders on the 16th again!

Grew up playing this course, and the course itself is great, and very well kept, but the members make it unplayable. I was in a 2 ball with a buggy, and it's just taken 2hrs 30 mins to play 9 holes.

The course is completely clogged with geriatric 4 balls, all of whom play incredibly slowly and badly. We had to wait for every shot, and ended up walking off after 9.

A 60 quid green fee for that experience is obscene.

If you want to play golf in Alnmouth, go play the village course for 25 quid (better pace of play, and in just as good condition), or if you want to spend 60 quid on a round, go play Bamburgh Castle. It's prettier, in good nick, and the members play at a reasonable speed, unlike Foxton.

As discussed in our email exchange Unfortunately when playing a course in a two ball in a buggy you cannot expect to have the golf course to yourself especially during a peak time. If you wish to play at off peak times you may be able to get around faster than peak times. Therefore playing in a two ball in a buggy you can expect to be held up by “old hackers” (Our members) but as I can see from the tee sheet we have nearly 200 golfers on the course that day and with limited daylight hours we need people to play in fourball formats. As you have stated our course is in great condition and we provide a great food & Beveridge facility- hence why we charge a £60 green fee comparable with the likes of Bamburgh & Goswick. Yes 5 hours in unacceptable and we aim for a fourball to play in four hours or slightly less. Being a golfer myself I do understand the frustrations of slow play We have offered a 241 voucher as an apology for another visit which you may wish to take advantge of.

Very pleasant place to stop and enjoy some refreshment. The bar had a fine selection of beers and the ambience in the clubhouse was very friendly and welcoming as were the staff. The selection at the time of cakes was very impressive and more to the point delicious!!

This was a two night golfing break for friends and 14 stayed in the dormie house. The golf course was in excellent condition for February. We had an evening meal on the Friday which was to a high standard. The breakfasts were quality and food plentiful.

The bar had a good selection of beers and wines and the ambience in the clubhouse was very friendly and welcoming as were the staff.

On the Saturday evening four of us ate at The Hope & Anchor in Alnmouth. This served Italian food and was good.

This Golf Club has absolutely wonderful views both from the course and Club House. We were here recently for a day's event and the catering was superb. The menu is straightforward but with plenty of choice, including vegetarian choice. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Eating with the marvellous views and well tended grounds was a great pleasure. We were also impressed with the covid controls in place which were discrete but effective. There are lovely walks from here down to the village and coast so day visitors who are not golfers are very welcome to eat here. We look forward to our next visit.

Returning to Alnmouth following a walk to Boulmer we called into the golf club for a coffee. I noticed a lovely cake so ordered a slice. It was an extremely generous portion which my wife and I shared and we were both satisfied. Will return.

I have been to the club on numerous occasions - usually to play with a coffee and sandwich afterwards. Today we decided just to have lunch.

The setting of the bar is excellent with views across the golf course. The service was friendly and efficient.

The menu has a good range of reasonably priced food. The sandwiches ordered were very good and the good portion of fish and chips (with peas and tar tar sauce) were well presented.

The fish was very fresh with a nice crisp batter. The chips were a bit hard and not so well cooked - but not bad enough to complain.

Overall the club house was a very pleasant place to be on a cold, windy but sunny day.

A stunning course, great test of golf, very welcoming and great food after. Yes the weather helped, but even still you can tell this is a hidden gem come rain or shine. My only issue is its not a couple of hours closer to Sheffield as if it was I'd be asking for a membership form. We will be back in the near future
