I play this course regularly on visits upto friends in Berwick, many challenging holes and some spectacular, and a really friendly clubhouse. Not everybody's cup of tea, as some people like to compare it to the classic Goswick links course, which it isn't , but it's a good test and definitely worth a round.
Played again with a fourball using greenfree vouchers on June 13th, based on the round rate. (£13.50 each ). Great value. The course was cut immaculately and in very good condition.As before,very relaxed atmosphere in the clubhouse and very friendly.
Played this course on sunny but very windy day. Very pleasant and not too taxing except when playing straight into a gale.Fantastic views, great condition ( especially the greens). Amongst the friendliest clubhouses I've ever been in. Will return.
Twelve of us visited this course on 12th June 2009. We booked 3 caravans for 3 nights at Berwick Holiday centre and over the next 4 days played the course 7 times. Goswick its not but for £110 per person we were treat to unlimited golf for 4 days with breakfast, dinner and tea thrown in each day, which meant we had no need to cook anything in the caravans. (good job as we were 12 blokes)
The course it idea for 18 to 28 handicappers as it is not too difficult unless the wind blows.
Course was well looked after and everyone in the clubhouse did everything they could to make us feel welcome.
Would recommend this caravan park and golf club as an cheap way of organising a lads weekend away golfing for 18 to 28 handicappers.
Unfortunately I would say that if you are a single figure handicapper you would find this course of little challange.
Poor poor course and the course design is in the name,it is a FIELD simple as thet,save your money and go down the road to Goswick which is a superb test and up with the best you will ever play in Britain.
In the US we consider a course in this condition to be a cow pasture. But the location is unbelievable. To play a course on cliffs like this is rare. There is Torrey Pines, Pebble Beach, Cypress Point and a few others and that is it in the US. It is so unfortunate there are not funds to turn this into a top notch course. If they planted trees it could become the next Spyglass Hill! The rigs (undulating fairways) are very odd. Why penalize a perfect shot? Doesn't make any sense. But this is only on a few holes. This would be a course to play if you were close and had no time to go somewhere else like Whitekirk or Goswick.
Played this course on Monday 6th May 2002. Very disapointed with the first 9, especially after the romantic descriptions on the club's web site. The view of scruffy caravans and a railway line were not nice, and most of teh holes lacked character.
That said, the cove hole and the second 9 were very very good and would recommend this course on that basis.
Testing seaside course with views of the Northumberland coast.
Easily the best course in North Northumberland, very reasonably priced to, started talking to a member in the car park and he got me and my pal on for 6 quid each.
Course was in good nick, some very tricky holes, the hardest being the 218 yard par 3 14th, well bunkered with an undulating green.
Definitely worth a visit, warm welcome in the new clubhouse.
