Magdalene Fields is the first or last golf course in England depending on whether you are travelling north or south. The course is situated five minutes from the centre of the ancient town of Berwick upon Tweed. Teeing up at the first hole you are just yards from the famous Elizabethan walls. By the time you reach the signature par three eighth hole (played over a cove) you have a wonderful view of the cliffs leading into Scotland. After the turn, from the tenth there is an equally stunning view of the Northumberland coast with Bamburgh and Holy Island castles clearly in view. The most dangerous hole on the course is the sixteenth, named “the destroyer”, which is a blind drive only yards away from the shelter made famous in a painting by L.S. Lowry. The spacious clubhouse has a friendly atmosphere and individuals and parties alike are welcome all year round.
