1Welcome to Alnmouth Golf Club. Built in 1869, its the 4th oldest club in England and the oldest 9 hole. A testing par 4 to start. A straight drive is required to the top of the hill to have any chance of reaching this green in regulation. From here the long narrow green is now visible.It will still require a long iron or fairway wood to find the putting surface. Beware of anything fading right as a steep bank awaits.2A deceptive hole which requires a brave drive down the left side of the fairway avoiding the burn. This still leaves a tricky approach to a blind green which plays longer than it l3An excellent par 5 from the back tee which demands a good tee shot to clear the water. Care is needed on the second shot as the fairway bunkers await a misplaced lay up. Once avoided a birdie opportunity is available.4A challenging dogleg that requires an accurate tee shot threaded through the fairway bunkers. The ambitious should be wary of cutting too much of the corner as the OOB and bushes l A good mid iron will now see you to the putting surface.5Our signature hole. A picturesque par 3 running along the beach. This requires a good mid iron shot to a well guarded green.Club selection is important depending on the wind speed and direction on this exposed hole.6A demanding par 4 which requires a long straight drive back over the pond to the top of the hill. The second shot will invariably be blind to a smallish green well guarded by bunkers short on the right. Walk off here with a par and it will feel like a birdie.7A deceiving shortish dog leg par 4 where an accurate tee shot to the left half of the fairway opens up the hole away from the trees. This will leave an approach to a small undulating green. Take care not to underclub as the valley awaits in front and left.8The shortest hole on the course but not without dangers. Anything slightly misjudged to the well bunkered green will leave a tricky recovery in order to save par.9A slight dog-leg par 4 back to the Clubhouse. Avoiding the fairway bunkers will leaveA short but intimidating second shot with OB and Foxton Drive very close to the back edge of the green10A tough start to the back nine where a long straight drive is required but beware OB is close by left and right. From here there is still a lot of work to do on this demanding hole with a long iron/fairway wood shot. Leaving the green with a par is an excellent result11An interesting par 3 up the hill it always plays a little longer than it looks. Take one extra club.The large undulating green offers a further challenge when you get there.12Accuracy off the tee is very important on this shortish par 4, where the blind green is indicated by a large marker flag. A strategically placed tee shot to the marker on top of the hill avoids the bunkers and OOB on the right. The green is now in full view for a short approach shot down the hill.13An excellent par 5 up and over the brow of the hill, it demands a good tee shot to avoid the fairway bunkers therefore the best option is to keep left, but beware the OB is close bYour drive will determine your next shot as more fairway bunkers look. However, two of your very best could get you near and a birdie chance.14Another hole that demands an accurate tee shot to the left half of the fairway avoiding the bunkers. Anything fading right will end up down the hill and in the trees. The shortish second shot is to a narrow long green where three putts are often seen15A tough climb to the top of the course but the views are worth it when you get there. A tee shot to the right half of the fairway, the line is the left side of the pill box, opens up the green. With OB very close right and large bunkers awaiting anything going left 16This hole starts the home stretch. A par 5 with OB hugging the fairway from tee to green down the right hand side it provides an intimidating challenge from start to finish. A long straight drive will bring the green to within range or if not two accurate shots will provide a birdie opportunity. The hole runs alongside the 6th of our neighbours Alnmouth Village Golf Club17A difficult par 3 to keep your score going as you approach home. Depending upon the wind, club selection can be anything up to a driver from the back tees to a well protected green18An excellent finishing hole with the Clubhouse in sight. It is important to avoid the fairway bunkers with your drive. With the Clubhouse behind a valley in front of the large green, club selection is vitally important in the quest for that closing par.
