Course has lots of character and was generally in good order for the time of year with the exception of bunkers which are heavily weather damaged and need urgent attention. Our group enjoyed the round but pace of play was very slow (circa 4.5 hours) – this was not helped by a course official who allowed a party that had turned up at the course over 1 hour early tee off ahead of 3 groups that were at the tee precisely on time – this is wrong, annoyed a lot of people and resulted in significant delay. Some of the holes on the course are very hilly including some blind tee shots through areas containing large trees – if this isn’t your thing then I suggest that you give the course a miss. Also it would be helpful if the fairways had yardage markers. Facilities are a bit dated now and could do with some investment to modernise and generally tidy the place up.
Where’s the castle?!
Had a nice enough round on a Sunday lunchtime. It was a cold and windy day but the course is in decent condition, all the greens were spot on with the fairways looking a little bobbly but not too bad. Classic autumn golf on a tree lined course meant leaves starting to fall and balls in the fairway sometimes still hard to
Find. The clubhouse is very rough and ready and there are no practice facilities so first swing of the day is made on the tee box directly in front of the bar, gets the nerves jangling with plenty of folk watching. While walking the enjoyable hilly course I didn’t catch a glimpse of the posthumous castle, and there wasn’t much in the way of views. All in all good value (especially for cheap coffee and pints in the clubhouse) but won’t rush back to quickly.
I enjoyed it so much 8’m joining the club
As beginners my wife and I have been looking for a club to join. We’ve played a number of local courses with this in mind.
The staff and other members could not have been more helpful.
The conditions were excellent, tee boxes greens and fairways the best, in my very limited experience, I’ve played so far.
The clubhouse had all the covid preventative measures in place so we even enjoyed a socially distanced beer afterwards!
All in all highly recommended.
Great golf course
We thoroughly enjoyed playing this course which was in excellent condition, a credit to the greenkeepers.
The staff were very welcoming, the clubhouse however, would benefit from updating.
Course very hilly to say the least
1st 3 holes was like the big dipper
Course not very well signposted ie naot very well directed and not one distance yardage marker on any of the fairways
Clubhouse very friendly attached
Wonderful afternoon at Alnwick
Very warm welcome from everyone at the clubhouse got us off to a great start. The course was in excellent condition except for a few of the greens on the original part of the course which appeared to have suffered from the the drought conditions earlier this year. Really enjoyed our round. Wouldn't hesitate to play yhe course again and can recommend it to all. There was a 2 ball competition in front of us so the pace of play was superb. Just less than three hours for 18 holes.
Smashing Course, worth a visit
A very friendly club, we were made very welcome in the clubhouse before and after. The course is an interesting mix of the original 9 and extended 9 to take it to 18. Lots of holes to make you think, interesting approach shots and curvy greens. It is undoubtedly a course you would play better second time around once you understood where you needed to be shot wise.
The course was generally in excellent condition although some of the greens on the early holes were a bit patchy. Do not let that put you off though and hopefully it will be remedied soon enough.
Alnwick Castle is not one of the glamour clubs in the area but it is worth seeking out. An enjoyable place to play.
Great challenging course and greens and fairways are well kept. Would definitely recommend.
Gotta a 15quid mud week deal for 6 baller. First time I've played and will definitely be back. Couple of greens could do with some TLC but didn't spoil our day. A bit hilly in places but good for the old ticker. Will be back
Played first time. Lovely course. In good condition overall although greens a little patchy. Very friendly welcome. Shame my game wasn't in same condition as course.
Last minute booking. Very windy day. Course in great condition despite lots of rain in recent weeks.
Low key, relaxed, friendly clubhouse.
Great variety of holes. In conversation with a member I learned it was originally a 9 hole (within park walls) with the extra 9 added later.
Thoroughly enjoyed the visit. Amazing value..£10 for 18 holes!
Beautiful course, a real hidden gem.
Good Course with Nice Views
Alnwick Castle Golf Course is a nice parkland course set on the outskirts of Alnwick, the course is on land which is raised above the town giving views over some of the town with nice vistas of the surrounding countryside. Some of the course is set in woodland and I enjoyed these holes the most, others are laid out across adjoining land and they are not quite as interesting but still enjoyable. This course is quite hilly so if you are unfit or have mobility issues then a buggy may be required if available. The greens were of a decent standard.
The club is about to undergo a period of building works with a new club house to be constructed and some alterations of the course planned as houses are also going to be built on some land that the club currently uses.
Overall I enjoyed my round, the scenery was good, the weather gorgeous for the time of year and the course was in good condition. I would visit again.
A nice challenging course
Played here a couple of times and have always found the course in good condition.
The greens are particularly well maintained and true, It's a pretty hilly course and there are a few tees that are well spaced out and require a good walk to get to, So think twice before setting off if you intend to carry your bag.
I have always found this course to be challenging, so you'd better bring your 'A' game....
Nice course but hilly at the start greens were class . First time playing the course definitely go back again
The first 3 holes can be a challenge but great fun...the course is well maintained and we had a fantastic round. Would recommend this to everyone
