H. S. Colt
Situated half a mile to the north of the village of Alnmouth and only ten minutes drive from the main A1 link road, Alnmouth Golf Club is easily accessed. The Club has a long and distinguished history and is proud of its heritage as the fourth oldest course in England, being established in 1869. The existing course was created in 1930 by the famous golf course architect H.S.Colt, providing a testing and enjoyable challenge to this day using his trademark steep slopes and run off areas to protect the greens. Although the course has a coastal location it has parkland turf and a reputation for the quality of its greens and excellent presentation. This left the original nine holes intact for what is now known as the Alnmouth Village Golf Club or near neighbours. We retain a strong link with our sister Club, and hold joint competitions annually to celebrate our common golfing heritage. Our course is a fine test of golf , 6525 yards long, par 71 for the men, 5752yards, par 74 for the ladies and has hosted National and County events. Its subtle difficulties are offset by the wonderful variety of scenery, ranging from seashore to headland, with a breathtaking, panoramic view from the 15th green over many miles of the Northumberland coastline. The course is rich in wildlife and is always a joy to play. Buggies are available for hire to enhance your enjoyment.
