Goswick is a must to play if you like links golf, the course is very challenging especially in the wind. The only criticism we had is that the round was very slow as we were following a visiting party with some beginners which made the back 9 a long slog. Overall a great golf course and one to definitely play if you are in the area.
Founded in 1890, Goswick Links is an authentic seaside links located along the beautiful Northumberland Coastline, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, halfway between Newcastle and Edinburgh and just south of the historic market town of Berwick-Upon-Tweed and the England/Scotland border. It affords sensational views of the North Sea, Holy Island and majestic Bamburgh Castle.
This James Braid masterpiece is one of just 15 courses selected by the R&A to host regional qualifying for The Open Championship. Golf World ranks it as one of the top 100 links courses in GB&I and National Club Golfer rates it among the top 50 courses of all kinds in England. Its pure fescue fairways deliver a lively bounce and its greens roll fast and true all year-round. This is an absolute must-play for any golfer visiting the North East or on their way to or from Scotland.
