15 reviews of Seahouses Golf Club

Played here on 12/9/2010. This is definitely a course of two halves. Holes 1 to 7 are pretty ordinary, especially those over the road which have been shoe-horned in. Holes 4 and 7 share the same fairway and must be chaos on a busy day. The 8th, a fine well bunkered hole, is the only exception before crossing back over the road. From then on you would not think it was the same course. The stand out holes are of course the par 3 10th and 15th but there are other nice holes until you reach the 18th which although good is a replica of the 9th with which it shares its fairway. I understand that this was a 9 hole course which was expanded to 18 in the mid 70’s. In my opinion it should have been left as it was. Small clubhouse with basic facilities.

Played this course last month and was particularly impressed with the holes on the clubhouse side of the road, some tricky par 3's over water and greens are in good condition as they should be on a links course. I thought £16 on 2 4 1 was still a bit pricey, as I wasn't too impressed with the holes on the opposite side of the road to the clubhouse, seemed as though they were just cut into a field!
Will return, although do be careful as there are shared fairways making some of the holes pretty much identical!

An excellent day out on a thoroughly enjoyable course. Being used to playing parkland courses my party found some of the clifftop holes quite exacting but found time to sunbathe on the beach (retrieving balls).The clubhouse facilities are quite basic but the food is o,k. and reasonably priced as is the golf.The bird life on the course makes up for any other faults although to be honest there aren,t many.An excellent test of golf for a middle handicapper. Don,t be put off by what others may have said but keep an eye on your ball if the vice captain is about with his mate.We didn,t even get the ball back when we told him he,d played the wrong one.He just told us which area of the sea it was in.The staff were very friendly but the members were somewhat clanish.

Played this course on the last day of 2004, on what I was later told had probably been the best day of the year for golf! Would be a real test with a wind up, as I witnessed when passing the next couple of days. 4th & 7th strange but possibly unique, crossing fairways. 10th and 15th both excellent par 3s. Friendly clubhouse and John the secretery took time out to come over and have a chat after our round. Excellent!

Nice course with two spectacular holes, overall I found the course a bit dangerous with shared fairways, and close proximity to the road. Worth a visit but I wouldnt go out of my way to return.

This is a great course with some of the best holes I have ever played, I would have to say the 15th edged it for me (may be because I won the nearest the pin competition) - No seriously this hole really does deserve a mention, only 104 yrds but playing over the cliffs to the smallest green I have ever seen (not much bigger than a tee box) with little run off at the back before you go over the cliffs.
This is a course I will definetly play again and one than our society wants to return to next year.

I played Seahouses as part of a three day break in Northumberland. Although enjoyable, this was the least impressive of the three courses we played. The main drawback of the course is that there really is not enough room for an eighteen hole layout. The holes around the bay are true links- and very good ones at that, but when you cross the road you are basically playing in a big field. I could not understand the logic of having two tee boxes adjacent (4th & 7th I think) which played across each other to two greens equidistant at the bottom of the field, surely some trees to split the two fairways would give the holes some definition and bring the water hazard into play on the fourth, as it is too easy to play down the centre of the field and give it a wide berth. having said all that, the course was in very good condition and provided a good days golf.

What a great course, my first links and what a beauty. Very tight in places but you have to think about every shot, very impressed with the 10th & 15th unfortunately only one par 5 on the course but this did not spoil the day. Great breakfast bap before we played and lovely pint afterwards. Staff are very friendly and always up for a natter, will definately be going back in the near future, well recommended(GET THERE) you will not be disappointed

Great little course, only par 67 but a good little test with 2 special par 3s. 10 plays across an inlet from the sea from an elevated tee with absolutely no land before the green. 15 plays about 110yards with the sea about 5yards left of the green. Got there early (7ish) and got two rounds in before 12, great lunch then out for the 3rd round.

Played the course the week after whit week 2001,on a fresh sunny day with a reasonble breeze. What a challenge !! the course just gets better as the holes slip by, especially the 2 par three's by the beach! it is a struggle to make par off any handicap, i failed off mine (18).will definatly play this course again if i'm up this part of the country again. RON (wolverhampton)
P.s. The 19th is also as memorable, guinness and all day breakfast!!

I have visited this course many times and will be back lots more. Not a long course, with only 1 par 5(427yds) but don't let this fool you into thinking it will be easy! Some challenging par 3's especially the 10th (which is over water), when the wind blows this must be played with a fair amount of caution. After working up an appetite on the course I can definately recommend a trip to the 19th where the food is out of this world with giant size portions. A must for every golfer worldwide!

An excellent tight links course a must visit for anyone who wants to play links golf.Although a short course its very tight and its 6 par threes especially the tenth and 15th where water and beach are real problems cause you much thought on club selection.I understand not many golfers break the par for course and I now know why.Also the most friendly club house I have ever visited ,go midweek and you will have course to yourself.

Excellent course, recently played in their Mens Open which was my first\r\nof which I hope will be many visits, wonderfull course layout, I would recommend\r\nthis course to anyone who likes playing Links courses, fortunatly on the\r\nday I was there we did not encounter much of a wind, but the course was still\r\na tough challenge, some wonderfull par 3s especialy the 10th over a water\r\ninlet from the sea with a very wide but not very deep green, where if you\r\ncome up short you are definatly swimming, also look out for one of the other par\r\n3s on the back nine, it's only a 9 iron to wedge, but you play from cliff to cliff\r\nand if you don't make it you will end up on the beach below.
