Welcome to the Northumberland Golf Club, an Open 2014 Regional Qualifying Golf Course
A warm welcome to members and visitors.
We are privileged to have a great golf course with modern clubhouse facilities that combine the best of tradition with a firm eye on the future. To visitors: I doubt you will find a more enjoyable example of a heath land course in the North of England.
The challenge of playing on medieval rigs and furrows, avoiding the numerous well placed bunkers and reading the large undulating greens are a challenge to the very best players. Couple this with the fact that you are playing over and beside the Racecourse make the whole experience memorable.
This is not one of those forgettable courses where you struggle to distinguish one hole from another. Nor is it an unrelenting slog - tactical golf is required, typical of the designers, H.S. Colt and James Braid and worthy of its position as a Regional Open Qualifying course from 2013.
A word of caution - do not relax on the "final stretch", the closing 4 holes into the prevailing westerly are a real challenge and will require all your skill and concentration.
