Gem of a course

1st time playing Rothbury but it won't be the last. Stunning course in a stunning place. Played most courses in the north east and this is up there. Played the course after 3 days of solid rain but it was still very playable. Greens were slow to be expected and the fairways were slightly long too, but can't complain following the recent weather. Was in better condition than i expected. It's a tricky course with small greens which i like. Every hole is a different test and there are a couple of driveable par 4s. The members that we bumped in to around the course were all very welcoming too. Top marks from me, hope to be back soon!!

First time at rothbury

Great course, first 9 very technical due to hills but very enjoyable. Back 9 mostly long and straight great for big drives. Well maintained all over, some fantastic views. Will definitely be returning.

Bit Disappointed

Bit disappointed that we paid £22 and there were no flags...raised cups weren’t much of a surprise but not having a flag to see if a bit of a pain

Lovely course, with good selection of holes.

Had a great round here. Fairways were in super condition. Greens are small but the aprons are kept very short which helps.

Nice selection of holes, the first 9 are over rolling country side and the inward 9 are pretty flat.

Both the 1st and 9th tees are close to the club house so it's super easy to play both if you just want a short game.

If this club was a little closer to home I would become a member.

Nice parkland course

First 9 holes are rather hilly, while the 9 last are quite flat and easy walking.
When we played we almost had the course to ourselves.
Wecome from Norway to the UK annually to play golf - then we play 12 rounds in 14 days

Well worth a visit.

Played as a two ball Sunday afternoon. Very quiet on course but Sunday lunch trade very busy and looked good value. Staff welcoming and members all spoke. Course two distinct nines. Front nine quite hilly and lots of uneven stances on fairways. Back nine plays around river flood plain and is very flat and easier scoring nine. Tees in ok condition but no divot mix boxes so lots of unrepaired divots. Green were ok but quite slow. Really liked the shaped approaches and aprons to the greens . Would definitely recommend if in the area. Stunning views all around and view from clubhouse terrace must be one of the best you can get.

Easter Sunday Morning to myself!

Tee d off 7 O clock Easter Sunday Morning and Had the Course to myself. Birds were still in full Voice. Bit of a Chill Wind. The Clubhouse looks awesome, We Stayed overnight in the Carpark (Motorhome) and The Clubhouse was busy with Members and a Society i think. Nice Set Up.
Some Great Holes on the course and in Nice Condition. The Green Keepers were already out cutting Grass and making the course Great for the Day, You can see its well looked after. Some nice Lay up Holes you have to think about rather than just belt it long for the Big Hitters. Well recommended and would come back, even Join if i were to live Local.

A real gem

The only criticism i can find is that the winter tees on holes 1 and 10 don't need to be in use, other than that this course is an absolute perfect blend of long and challenging holes. It's value for money is second to none i've played in summer and winter and if i didn't live so far away i'd become a member in a heartbeat.
