What the club says: Gosforth Golf Club is a course of immense character. One of the major features of the course providing a test on many of the holes, is the Ouse Burn, which winds its way down the 18th and through the 4th on its way to the Tyne.

A steady mix of tough par 4s, testing par 5s and gentle par 3s ensure the course is an enjoyable test for golfers of all abilities.

At 432 yards from the medal tee, the 18th hole (pictured left) is undoubtedly the clubs signature hole and has often been referred to as the toughest finishing hole in Northumberland. The line of trees down the left and the infamous Ouse Burn on the right guarantee a challenging finishing hole which has put paid to many a good score in the past. However, after successfully negotiating the tee shot, the golfer is faced with a long, tough approach to a rolling green that appears to be far smaller than it actually is. Par is a good score!

Decent course, slightly overpriced.

Played here in decent weather yesterday, the course plays either side of the bridle path, the holes on the club house are picturesque with water hazards, trees and dog legs to make them really interesting; the other nine holes are very up and down with well placed bunkers to keep interest but lacking look and feel of the other holes.

Green condition was poor in several holes, partially due to the bad weather we've seen at the start of the year but noticeably worse that other courses played in recent weeks.

Lovely course, very well looked after. Short enough and probably more suitable for mid-high handicappers but lots of variety from hole to hole - a challenge but does give you opportunities to score well if you do the right thing.
Service in the shop superb and always very friendly. Haven't used the clubhouse/bar yet but looks nice from outside. Would definitely play again
