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.

Response from petersimpson2016, Manager at Alnmouth Golf Club Foxton Hall
Responded Oct 1, 2020
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.

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.

A very attractive course with views to the sea on many holes. Several par 4s are quite long but generously wide fairways. Greens in very good condition indeed. Practice facilities first class. Certainly the best course in the area and well worth a visit

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.

We often stop off at this welcoming golf club cafe for a snack when out walking along the beautiful Northumberland coastline. Friendly staff, and visitors are always made welcome, even if not playing golf! Good value, simple food, with no frills.
