Bamburgh Castle Golf Club is a traditional and unique golf club with a timeless and welcoming character.

With our stunning location of he Northumberland Coastline we are one of the most memorable golf courses you will ever play. Don't just take our word for it, Bernard Darwin wrote in his 1920's book Golf on the LNER: "I imagine that the golfer's eye must be more often taken off the ball at Bamburgh than on any other course... the views are so compellingly beautiful that we really have to look, no matter how critical the shot."

More recently Golf World said "This is quite possibly the most beautiful and beautifully situated golf course in all England."

Once you have finished your round you must visit our recently refurbished and extended Clubhouse which retains the charm of the original 1904 building as well as our renowned hospitality and friendly atmosphere. We truly believe that the game isn't over until the 19th hole has been 'played'.

Services include: golf with practice area, buggies & trolleys, food & drinks and a warm Northumbrian welcome! The club is also available for hire.

A teal hidden gem

I played this course on a Tuesday afternoon at 4.00pm when green fees are at their lowest. It was millionaires golf with hardly a soul to be seen. Many of the holes are not long but don't be fooled, this course is no push over. Just make sure you take time to enjoy the amazing views. I look forward to returning.

There’s no Grander Golf Course Offering Better Views

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, you appear to be in a different world. The coaurse is bang on the coast and occasional tee shots from hole 1 can get wet! The course certainly isn’t championship level, but offers its own demands with blind tee shots on several holes. The views are the reason for this being a truly magical place. With Budle Bay, Lindisfarne / Holy Island, The Farne Islands, Cheviot (Northumberland’s highest hill) and Bamburgh Castle, you are never short of breath-taking vista. Even if the weather or golf aren’t the best, this place truly is special. But it doesn’t end there… The club house has recently undergone an upgrade and has extended, which is rare in the golfing world. The beer, food, staff and cosy lounges with further great views, make this one of my all-time favourite golf course.

Stunning course!

Played this golf course last Sunday. Great Clifftop/Seaside course. I started off at a flyer with 3 pars and 2 bogies on the first five holes playing off a handicap of 23. Don't be fooled, this course bites back. I said to my playing partner, whilst looking at the high elevated area to our left, "Surely the course doesn't go up there?" does, and the higher you get the stronger the wind gets. The rewards however are stunning, with views of the surrounding area including Bamburgh Castle, the Farne Islands and the rest of the course spread out below. There are six par threes on the course, not many of which (excepting maybe the first two), that are even moderately easy). So if you enjoy a stern examination of your golf swing coupled with wonderful scenery visit Bamburgh, Almost forgot, a very friendly welcome in the club house too, the very nice lady even let my wife, daughter and one year old granddaughter sit and wait for us. And to any non golfers reading this that wouldn't always be the case at some golf clubs. Final word, this is a very hard walking course. Anyone with mobility problems, hire a buggy or play elsewhere.

Terrific views - a gem of a course

Visited yesterday and just loved this club. Greeted warmly by Wendy on arrival who produced delicious crab sandwiches for lunch. The setting of the course is magical - every way you look the views are breathtaking. The course is short but requires thought and planning. An absolute delight! The club hours lovely - enjoyed great drinks post round . Will be back .
