What the club says: Whilst not long at just over 5,600 yards off the back markers, the course is a demanding par 68.

The course is lined by gorse, heather, whinstone and rare fauna and has a unique series of opening holes with back to back par 3s followed by two excellent par 5s. While not the longest course, amounting to just over 5,600 yards, it is a demanding par 68 although there are birdie opportunities especially on the way home with three par 4s under 300 yards for you to savour.



Most Helpful Review

Super, exciting, scenic, and beautifully maintained.
New clubhouse extension makes it one of the most welcoming golf clubs in the North East.
Loved it !!!!!!!!! - Apr 20 2014

Twilight North East
First time at this course....stunning views and some great golf holes especially on a windy late afternoon....only thing that spoilt it slightly was that the greens were a bit slower than I would have expected on a links course

Great course
Probably one of the most interesting courses I have evr played with amazing views over the coast. Not an easy course, needs accuracy rather than distance but decent greens, well kept bunkers (not too many!) and almost no trees!!

Brilliant variety!
Superb value for money at ?21 after 3pm. Greens and fairways were excellent (although greens were being spiked) but clearly looked after well. Each hole offered great challenge especially some 'blind' shots that require great imagination for those new to the course.
Would play it again in a heartbeat!

Spectacular, Challenging, Friendly
Played several times on this challenging course, suits a 'better golfer' I would say. As a retired person the walk can be hard so a buggy may be helpfull. Pace of play is always good but take a few extra balls and expect to loose a couple. Expect a good pint at the end

A must play in Northumberland
Firstly the pratice nets seemed out of action whilst we were there, the putting green was nice and two tiered. The tees, fairways were both in excellent conditions, with the former having positions with stunning views over the surrounding landscape. The semi rough/ rough was of a challenging length, but not long enough to lose your ball. Finally the par 3's are the crowning gem of this course as they are all have beautiful views of the castle, bay and the farne islands respectively. Overall a must play if staying in northumberland.

Loved it!
Question: What do you get if you cross a set of quirky, sometimes unique holes with stunning sea views?

Answer: A round at Bamburgh Castle Golf Club

This golf course is a reminder that amongst all talk of stiff tests, challenges, and playing to your handicap, golf is a game which first and foremost should be enjoyed. I defy anyone not to be taken in by the views from much of this course (I think I had a constant smile on my face for the first 9 holes) and the holes blend perfectly into the cliff top setting to provide a great variety of holes.

I won’t give anything further away – if you are in the area check it out – especially on a glorious sunny day.

Very windy so made it more difficult. Hilly course with beautiful views of the coast and castles. Lots of blind holes,so playing again may b easier!!

Must Play
This course has everything, fantastic views and in superb condition. You have to use every club in the bag at some point. Doesn't play long but is very tight, rewards accuracy rather than distance and every hole is unique. Very hilly so get a buggy if you need it.

Probably the most picturesque course I have ever played! Every hole has a view that will take your breath away. A pretty short course so great if your not the biggest hitter but there is some difficult holes which demand your upmost attention.

Worth a visit for the views
Blind holes and tricky par threes, finding the fairways and greens are key to a good round

Superb golf club, offering good quality changing facilities, excellent food and drink, and a course that is both challenging and offering views to dream about!
With the wind blowing, it is a real test of seaside golf.

Have played here 5 or 6 times over the years and most recently on a calm day with mild weather . Course was in excellent condition for March and the rough trimmed back which helped me immensely with a few wayward shots that would have been in deep trouble in the summer months. The overall maintenance was of a very high standard and is a credit to the club - Staff friendly and food good. Will return !!!
