Bamburgh

It was a shame there was only 10 holes in play, we rang up before setting off (70 mile journey) and voice message said course fully open!, when we arrived to find only 10 holes were in play and course was dry , not sure why only 10 holes were playing, but enjoyed it anyway

Fantastic Views

Great course, not long but very challenging with a lot of blind Second shots and tee shots and undulating fairways never giving a flat lie. The members were welcoming and the staff friendly giving some tips on the course before heading off. Pace of play was rapid, 3hrs somehow, don’t know if this is the norm. Overall a great course, as beginner/average golfers we were welcome and enjoyed our round

Absolute must play

What a fantastic course . Not just the views but the course itself ! Played after some pretty dire weather the days before . Fair ways lies we’re all good. Greens were in really good condition and ran true.
Only negative was you sometimes lost concentration on playing golf as you were staring at the stunning views !!!!!
A must play if you get the chance .

Magnificent. A must play

A truly magnificent setting for a golf course. 5* views all around the course and some excellent holes to match. Not a very long course but this doesn’t matter when the holes are quirky and ask enough of the golfer.
If you’re in Northumberland for golf you simply must play this course.

Bootiful

Fabulous course with spectacular views. It was a pleasure playing in such An amazing location - a course to make you think. It is quite hilly but mainly gradual so not too much on your legs. Course was in great condition, if I lived closer I would join. Drinks and food menu also good with indoor and outdoor seating areas.

Stunning

I will quote my son, a good golfer. “Might not be the best course I have played but without doubt the most beautiful - the views are sensational on every hole. Bamburgh Castle, the beautiful beaches, the Cheviots, Bude Bay and Holy Island WOW!”
Course was in excellent condition and the people were very friendly - the course is short but the par 3s are quirky and pretty tough.
Number 1 course to recommend in the area.

Wet weather
Used cart

walk in the mist

It was not the best of days - mist rain thunder, yet thoroughly enjoyed the round. No two holes the same - lots of changes in elevation - dog legs blind par 3 drivable par 4's. BCGC has got it all. Apparently it also has great views but we couldnt see them. Changed our tee time on arrival - no problem. Decided to take a buggy due to threat of lightening - no problem. I will return on a better day...
Played Carnoustie the following day and the greens were only marginally better.
