What the club says: The course is located within minutes of the main A1 above Alnwick Town Centre, we are 30 miles south of Berwick-upon-Tweed and 32 miles north of Newcastle upon Tyne. Originally created in 1907 and built on mature parkland the course offers spectacular views of the Capability Brown designed local countryside, extending to the sea 6 miles away.

The layout is superb with the 18 holes stretching over 6,250 yards and not too clustered together so that each holes feels less like an extension of the others, and more like an individual challenge in its own right. There are many natural hazards that can play havoc with any stray shots, including open grassland and gorse - home for many lost golf balls. The course provides a far test of golf with a mix of par threes, fours and fives. Our signature hole is the 12th known as the 'Lang Whang' - it is an uphill dog leg (left) par 5 culminating in a raised green - a par here or better and you'll be delighted.

good coarse

first couple of holes are very challenging if walking a buggy would be advisable for more elderly golfers, after that the coarse is quite a bit flatter although still hilly in places, lovely views over Alnwick and out to sea, wide fairways and the greens were brilliant.

Another hidden gem in Northumberland! Beautiful course, tight at the start and the finish, but with space in the middle of the round. Great course.

Nice parkland layout. Quite hilly with a couple of blind teeshots. Greens in good condition and the 12th "Lang Whang" is a monster at 565 off the yellows all up hill - especially if you don't play it well! Couple of plain holes but generally a nice little course. Clubhouse not much but has changing rooms and a bar which is all you need. The money clearly goes into the upkeep of the course which is a refreshing change.

An exellent parkland course with some great holes which present a challenge to both the high and low handicap golfer. The courseq is in great condition and has great views of the coast. The staff are very friendly and you will get a warm welcome. A must visit if in the area.
