What the club says: The course at Belford Golf Club, designed by Nigel Williams, opened in 1993 and has matured into a fine parklands course set on the edge of the scenic village of Belford.

The course is overlooked by the magnificent 18th Century Belford Hall and has views to the north east of Lindisfarne and the Northumberland coast.

Bought groupon deal to play today bacon sandwich lovely golf course is a disgrace walked off after 3 holes. Greens are not green the bunkers got more weeds in than sand. The fairways full of dandelions and not kept. Very disappointing.

Bob/ Darlington rated 3 out of 5 - Aug 31 2016

As a visiting golfer I was made very welcome and was not charged for the round because the bunkers are not in use at the moment, but was told work was starting on them soon. To be critical, the grass on the fairways was a bit long, some holes worse than others and some of the green were poor. However, a very nice course layout and I had an enjoyable round, I will certainly visit again when I'm next in the area.

Some good points and some bad from my visit. The Guy in the clubhouse was fantastic really friendly and helpful. He was also honest from the off saying that all the bunkers were out of commission and parts of the course were a work in progress. For that reason he didn't charge me to play. I feared the worst still as I set off on my round but in the end i thoroughly enjoyed a beautiful sunny morning at Belford. The course is actually very nice. It has many wide and picturesque fairways and some very nice holes. The panoramic views of the Northumberland countryside are an added bonus. Yes the bunkers were unuseable but i was told that at the start and I'd prefer to play the course like that than suffer bunkers with little or rubbish sand in as I have at many other courses. The greens are also in need of a lot of attention but again Belford aren't alone here either, based on my experience this year. When i was there a number of people were around working on the course so best of luck to them getting it back up to scratch. Yes don't expect a course in great condition but that didn't stop me enjoying my round, and enjoyment is what it's all about, right?

Having previously been a family run golf course since its opening many years ago, Belford golf course has recently 4/5 years been bought and horrifically miss-managed to the point the locals don’t/can’t even play on it anymore. Lack of investment and no full time greenkeeper(s) has led to the demise of this once well liked course. The people of the village have no real say in the running of the course and many previous members have raised concerns that it has fallen into such a state. Being an honorary member once upon a time, my card/pass has never arrived in the post since 2012, it really is in a sorry state of affairs, moreover a waste of what was once a valuable asset to the village.

Please do not assume it was a lack of support from local poeple which lead to this demise, whom dispair at the running of the place.

Dave, Middlesbrough rated 1 out of 5 - Jul 1 2015

Got to agree with most of the previous comments. We have a caravan in the area so this used to be handy for a quick 9 holes. first played it a few years ago and it was decent value for a tenner. Played here a fortnight ago and what a disaster this course is. Shocking greens, overgrown tees,neglected bunkers that were full of weeds and stones and poorish fairways. All
this with rough and grass cuttings up over my ankles made it a depressing round. Will not be dashing back to lose more balls even though it was only £5 when I was there. Come on Belford wake up and get your act together.

Roger rated 1 out of 5 - Jun 29 2015

Played here for the first time in a couple of years. I used to be a member and it was a friendly 9 hole course, interesting to play and not too taxing for a higher handicap. It has sadly gone to ruin. Fairways are like rough and the rough is unplayable - in fact, you won\'t even find the ball! Bunkers have waiste-high weeds growing in them and the \'greens\' are brown moss. For £5 you can\'t get golf any cheaper, but to be honest you may as well take your clubs out in a field and practice there instead. To the owner- what are you doing to what was once a lovely little gem? Shame.
