Great value, stunning course

A challenging course which is very well maintained. Exceptional backdrop and views, very fair layout, keep to the fairways and good scoring is possible, rough is a genuine hazard. Hard to fault the course at all and at ?20 an amazing price.

Worth more than the green fee

We played Dunstanburgh on our way back from the Open championship and were both very impressed. The greens rolled well, the course was tricky in parts and the views are lovely. The Par 3 13th was my favourite, a 130 yard hole over a steep drop which played into wind on the day and made clubbing difficult.
There is no pro shop but you pick the cards up in the little bar they have which serves both golfers and walkers. The course had a small putting green and a chipping green but no range or net as far as we could see.
If I had one complaint, it was that the pace of play wasn't great as the course was busy with fourballs and societies.
It wasn't enough to ruin the day but I would like to play the course again when not busy so I can fully concentrate. It's definitely a course I would recommend and will look to play again

Excellent links challenge

A beautiful links challenging course with an added bonus of a castle over looking it. More than worth the drive to it

Proper links experience

We played on a sunny day, with no wind, so our experience may not be typical!! The first eight holes are built around a couple of sand dunes: so they are full of character, while affording stunning views of the bay and along the coast. From the ninth, the course flattens out a bit as play towards the end of the course and a beautiful little par three which is set in front of the castle ruins. The course was in splendid condition, and we will certainly return for another round.
