'The Jewel In Northumberlands Golfing Crown'

Alnmouth Golf Club, Foxton Hall overlooks the splendours of both Foxton and Alnmouth Bay on the Northumberland coastline in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. It is widely regarded as one of the finest golf courses in the North East of England. 

Established in 1869, steeped in history, Alnmouth Golf Club is the 4th oldest golf club in England. Although the course has a coastal location it has parkland turf and a reputation for the fine quality of the greens and superb presentation. Recently chosen as one of the Top 100 Hidden Gem golf courses in the UK by Golf Monthly magazine, we are a private members club with active Mens and Ladies sections, friendly clubhouse atmosphere and a strong junior section.

Visitors are always given a warm Northumbrian welcome at Alnmouth where we have a wonderful golf course, first class practice facilities and a beautiful Clubhouse. A special feature of "Foxton" - as we are generally known - is our 26-bed Dormy House on the first floor of the clubhouse offering hotel accommodation at Visit England 3 Star rating, to groups of visiting golfers in very comfortable twin or single rooms with en suite facilities. We offer a full range of "Stay and Play" golf breaks for groups, couples or singles with golf here at Foxton or a choice of the best golf courses in Northumberland.

The Course

Situated half a mile to the north of the village of Alnmouth and only ten minutes drive from the main A1 link road, Alnmouth Golf Club is easily accessed. The Club has a long and distinguished history and is proud of its heritage as the 4th oldest club in England, being established in 1869.

The existing course was created in 1930 by the famous golf course architect H.S.Colt, providing a testing and enjoyable challenge to this day using his trademark steep slopes and run off areas to protect the greens. Although the course has a coastal location it has parkland turf and a reputation for the quality of its greens and excellent presentation.


The course is a fine test of golf, 6460 yards long, par 71 for the men from the White Tees, 6044 par 69 from the Yellow Tees and 5773 yards par 74 for the ladies and has hosted National and County events.  Its subtle difficulties are offset by the wonderful variety of scenery, ranging from seashore to headland, with a breathtaking, panoramic view from the 15th green over many miles of the Northumberland  coastline. The course is rich in wildlife and is always a joy to play. Buggies are available for hire to enhance your enjoyment.
