With a multitude of coastal links courses and many inland courses playing golf in Northumberland is an absolute pleasure, where you can not only enjoy a good round of golf but at the same time take in some brilliant scenery. Green fees in this area are extremely reasonable and you don't have to be a professional standard to play. You're bound to get a warm and friendly welcome whether you visit championship standard golf courses or the local 9 hole course.

Enjoy the true links challenges on the coast at Goswick, Warkworth, Dunstanburgh Castle and Newbiggin-By-The-Sea which are all just yards from some stunning beaches. Or you could take in the historical views at Bamburgh Castle Golf Club where the backdrop of the castle against the shoreline might just distract you from your game!

Further inland you can enjoy courses such as Slaley Hall which is set in 1000 acres of beautiful forest and moorland and has an excellent reputation as one of Northumberland's leading golf courses.

If you are keen to play more than just the one course while on holiday then head to one of the Tourist Information Centres where you can pick up a `ParSport' which allows you to try several of the best golf courses at discount rates.
