“Superb”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Very good golf course which will ask you to play a variety of shots in any weather. Every hole different and great condition considering time of year. Clubhouse/food/service excellent and made to feel most welcome. Well worth visiting.

“Good place to start and finish walk to Dunstanburgh.”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

The walk along the beach to Dunstanburgh Castle is simply beautiful and took us about 50 minutes. Our return walk was along the edge of the golf course and equally enjoyable. Very pleasant service at the golf. Lub.

“Fabulous golf course - challenging & stunning views”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

We played this course while on holiday in Northumberland. Great value (£16 each), lovely people at the club, very relaxed atmosphere and great course. I have only been playing golf for a year or so with limited experience playing links courses - but I thoroughly enjoyed playing this course. Great views and it really makes you think (ie play sensible golf). Some tricky par 3s. We're returning today for another round.
