It's March, half the golf courses in the UK are closed because of flooding, and most of the rest are ankle deep in mud. So I took a trip to Dunstanburgh. How refreshing this place is - when you ring up, you get a real...More

I really enjoyed playing here. Dunstanburgh is very much an old style links course that basically plays its way along the coast for 9 holes then turns back on itself towards the clubhouse. A few holes are the exception to the rule but you get...More
