Avoid the rough

First time of playing the course and found it very tough. Excellent first drive down the middle of the fairway but it wasn’t to last.
The opening seven holes have the sea on your right and if you don’t hit the fairway you have punishing rough or the beach.
The course itself was in excellent condition with the greens particularly fast.
Colin, the pro was very helpful in setting us off.
Overall a tough test on an excellently prepared course, just a pity I couldn’t do it justice.

Newbiggin 28/05/2021

The course is in good condition with the exception of a few weather damaged areas and one green in particular which was a bit beat up and had been quite heavily sanded. The front nine follow the coastal perimeter of the course and are quite an enjoyable and scenic challenge with some blind approach shots over sand dunes into relatively small greens. The back nine are slightly less interesting and a bit nondescript in places – maybe the club could consider planting some hardy trees to give the area a bit more character and a bit of shelter around the greens? The green fee of £15 was reasonable for Friday afternoon golf. A couple of notes for visitors: The course is quite exposed to the elements – it’s advisable to check the weather forecast before booking. Also the entire course is open to public access – sadly during our round there were a couple of “likely lads” wondering back and forward – probably best to keep your clubs & valuables nearby at all times.

Fantastic course spoilt by members

The course was fantastic a true links course. The only issue was my 2 ball was stuck behind a 4 ball for the whole round and they didn't offer to let us play through once wish was disappointing. However I would definitely return.

An Absolute Pleasure

Played here a few times recently and learned something new every time. Loved plotting my way around the course and had plenty of fun putting from 50 yards in if a fancied it. Picturesque along the coast, with plenty of different and challenging holes that require plenty of thought.

Excellent course in fantadtic condition!! Stunning

This was the first time i have played Newbiggin and wow, what a great course. The greens were in brilliant condition as were the fairways. Some of the holes are stunning and each hole is a different challenge. Planning on a return soon and contemplating becoming a member. If you haven't played this links course, give it a shot, its well worth it.
