Where2Golf says: 

Berwick upon Tweed Golf Club is home to the Goswick Links, a course that not only lives up to its excellent reputation, but for many golfers exceeds whatever they have read about it. Designer James Braid's masterful touch is clearly evident on this natural and very open seaside links.

The layout comprises two 9-hole loops arranged on either side of the clubhouse. An imposing range of towering sand dunes flanks the east side of the course, while flat farmland and the East Coast mainline railway (London to Edinburgh/Aberdeen) lie inland to the west. There are plenty of views onto the chilly North Sea, mostly gained from several pleasantly elevated tee-boxes. The excellent revetted bunkering is just as you'd expect on a top-quality British links course, with plenty of pot bunkers mischievously defending the wonderfully true and fast greens.

If you think your game is nicely in tune and you come here ready to overpower the course, just hope it and the wind don't overpower you. All 18 holes provide an excellent test of your golfing skills. A skilful low running bump-and-run game will certainly pay dividends around the greens.

Did you know?

Berwick upon Tweed Golf Club also goes under the name of Goswick Golf Club, or Goswick Links Golf Club or Berwick upon Tweed (Goswick) Golf Club. Suffice to say the tiny village of Goswick lies five miles south of Berwick upon Tweed. The village sits beside an impressive area of sand dunes, on which the townsfolk of Berwick upon Tweed laid out their golf course in 1890. Don't be surprised therefore if you think you are heading for Berwick-upon-Tweed GC but find yourself following signposts to Goswick GC (and/or Goswick Links GC).

Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford.

Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.
