What the club says: A demanding but picturesque seaside course, the coastal layout of Alnmouth Village club provides an ideal setting for a round of golf. With marvellous views across the seaside and a brisk fresh wind blowing inland from it, the location is like something from a postcard, and fortunately, the course is more than worthy of its surroundings.

There are plenty of challenges to be had here, from the undulating fairways which complicate otherwise straightforward club use from the tee, to the tricky, hard-to-read greens that threaten to play havoc with your short-game. And although it is only a nine-hole course, there are other tees so it can be played as an eighteen-hole for those who wish to.

Nice greens

Tight, short links course. Excellent greens and tight cut fairways. Good test of accuracy. As it's a 9-holer you play twice there's probably only 4-6 occasions to use driver but really you could leave it at home! I'd revisit though not necessarily with any excitement.

What golf is all about.

Played this course after I'd had a rotten few days away with work and it reminded me just how good golf can be at it's purest. This course was just the ticket, wonderful condition in a beautiful setting and whilst a good challenge, not long or punishing which is refreshing.

£10 in the honesty box and away for 9 holes in the fading light on a dry and bright but bitterly cold Tuesday in November, what a treat it was. This little course was bone dry with greens the envy of courses costing 5 or 10 times the price.

Genuinely the most I've enjoyed a game of golf in ages and I've played plenty good courses this year. I loved this course and if I'm ever back down I'll be sure to make a point of playing again.

Weekend visitor from Yorks, late March 2017. This true links course was in excellent condition for late spring, especially the greens which were fast too. Only 3 of the 9 holes offer a serious challenge. Much interference from beach traffic abutting the the first 6 holes, dogs, people, members playing some of the holes backwards dangerously and cars crossing during shot-making where the road to the beach interferes. Dog droppings widespread in the rough but still decent value for winter golf especially.when parkland courses unplayable.

Difficult to see how anyone can moan about this course, at least those immersed in the traditions of golf. At £10 for 9 or 18 holes this winter it was worth it just to putt on the greens. Having played all over Europe I have never seen greens so fast in spring. The Greens-staff need an award. Amazing that in this time of gadgets that such a traditional club can survive.

As the oldest Nine hole Links course in England this has to be on your list

We played it in a wind that made the first 5 holes relatively easy and my 1 over gross for these holes was in no small part due to the strong winds....the 6 hole up the hill from a tee box in front of the beach is a really tough shot into a head wind....I still somehow managed a Par on this interesting Par 4 with a chip from underneath the green to leave the ball close to the pin.
The views from the 7th tee are what this course is all about....on a Sunny day you can see all along the coastline and we weren't disappointed as we had a fantastic view...
The last 3 holes into the wind when we played were not easy but we had the benefit, as you often do with a Links course, earlier in the round so it was a case of keeping it in play and taking your medicine...3 holes and 2 bogies & a Par later I putted out on the 9th to end a 9 hole round at 3 over gross so with my handicap at 12 I was pleased with how I had played.

I played the course in benign weather, although not long, it would be totally different with the wind blowing. The views are spectacular & you have a feeling of the history of the place. It was founded in 1869. Well worth a visit. Apart from the honesty box area the clubhouse was closed on my visit.

Alnmouth Village is set on the "common" in the beautiful village of Alnmouth. The first 5 holes are true links holes which hug the beach and have some very tricky undulations around the greens. A severe climb comes next, but it's worth it for the view from the 7th tee, which is breathtaking, especially if you flush your drive, which will hang in the air for what seems like an age.

Downsides on the day we visited - the clubhouse was locked up which meant access to refreshments and changing facilities weren't available. Upsides - the course was in excellent condition, especially the greens, and well worth the £15 green fee.

Decided to go up the coast and play 9 holes at Alnmouth Village as I'd not played it before and it was a beautiful sunny morning. My first gripe was that it was £20 whether you played 9 or 18 holes. Personally I think if your a 9 hole course you should set a fair price for those just wanting to play 9 holes. For that reason alone i'm unlikely to go back in a hurry. Other negatives are that a number of holes are very close together and often you are playing on the same fairway as people playing another hole. A number of parts of the course suffer from Rabbit burrows so watch where you are standing or you will turn your ankle !! The positives are that Alnmouth is a lovely village and the links course is a very pleasant place to play. Take time to linger on the 6th tee, not just for the nice view up and down the beach but also to prepare yourself for the steep climb as your drive is ( if you manage to figure it out ) up over the steep rough and onto a very blind fairway high above you. And if you thought the view from the 6th tee was good the view from the 7th is fantastic as you drive back down the hill again. An enjoyable couple of hours in a lovely part of the world with some great views but on a course which does have some issues for the cost.
