Budget friendly links brilliance

This was my second time visiting Newbiggin in winter, and it was even better this time around. The winter layout allows for a full round of 18 on good greens, which were quick and true; not as fast as what they are known for, but some tricky pin placements made up for that and maintained the challenge. The course played brilliantly all the way, owing to well looked after fairways and hazards. Given that the late green fee is only £25, this course is a budget friendly gem for proper links golf in winter, and we’re looking forward to seeing it in even more glory in the summer.

Great course considering poor weather we have had

Course was in good constion considering the amount of rainfall we have had. Many other courses closed due to water logged. There was bunkers full of water and some boggy areas but greens where fantastic.
£35 was a bit steep for a winter course that was shortened to a 66 stroke index.
Great welcome by the pro and he moved my 2x2 balls into one 4 ball without me asking .

Smashing Links Course

First time playing here and it was great. The course was in great condition and is a good layout. It was also a bit windy but that just added to the challenge. Definitely will be back in the near future.

Played here as my home course was closed because of heavy overnight rain, the course was in fantastic condition, fairways and greens exceptional, course was busy but everyone was playing at a good pace, everyone was friendly and quite chatty, if you like links golf I would highly recommend playing this course.

Great Links Course

Very interesting course with some challenges but good fun to play with fast greens in very good condition, well worth a visit!
The hole layout info on each tee could be better and it’s probably a bit more expensive for a round considering the course facilities.

Spreadeagle Tour

First outing of the year on the Spreadeagle Tour. The course was set up in the Dunes configuration and was in very good condition. The Dunes holes par 3s are challenging despite their length, and the par 4 is a worthy stroke index 1.
We’ll be back in a few weeks.

Varied holes

Great links course. Holes are all very varied. The greens are really difficult to protect the course on the shorter holes. In almost immaculate condition. Great views of the coast (if you blank out the power station!)
Pace of play was horrendous though. A 4 ball in front of us basically held the whole course up for hours. Some players behind us wouldn’t have got their rounds finished.

Great value

First time playing there and really enjoyed it. Shame the fog came in for the last 5 holes but we still managed to finish the round. Absolute bargain for £20 a round.

Great course

Newbiggen is a fantastic and very challenging links course.....if its not windy where you live its windy in newbiggen so bear it in mind when you're playing it. The facilities are excellent and very friendly. Most of the holes have very good challenging fairways and the greens are lightening fast bump and run is the order of the day
