"I imagine that the golfer's eye must be more often taken off the ball at Bamburgh than any other course" wrote Bernard Darwin in his 1920s book Golf on the LNER, "the view is so compellingly beautiful that we really have to look at it, no matter how critical the shot.

We come to Bamburgh each winter to play our annual tournament. It is over an hour’s drive away from Durham, but I’d walk there if I had to. The drive down from the A1 is a little precarious, but as soon as you drive up,...More

A fun course, perhaps as a second round in a day. It's short, but very hilly. Don't let the yardage fool you, there are some challenging holes for sure. Also great views of the castle and sea.
