A Perfect Round


Dunstanburgh Castle
The best golf courses with striking sea views

The fairways of North East England and Yorkshire are less well travelled and celebrated than some but that’s both good and bad news. On the downside, these courses deserve so much more acclaim – indeed some are outstanding in terms of their golfing challenge (especially when the weather plays a part) and their sheer beauty is also worthy of high praise. On the other hand, as a result of the bad news, the courses are infinitely easier to book and are better value too. Perhaps the most scenic is Bamburgh – it’s relatively short by today’s standards but it’s an absolute gem. Don’t miss it. Goswick further north is also exceptionally well-maintained and Dunstanburgh Castle with the eponymous edifice watching over is another treat to play. All the courses listed below are well worthy of a visit and Seaton Carew is a particularly good test of golf. Yorkshire's coast also has a few gems. A little inland, a golf course for the connoisseur can be found at Ganton. It’s had some of the great golfing architects play a hand in the design of it’s glorious fairways and a visit is strongly recommended, but it’s not for the novice. All these courses are friendly and welcoming. Always book in advance where possible and enjoy links and seaside golf at it’s most challenging – and glorious.
