Would be great to get there during Buda if possible, but as always too many courses for the time we have. It is really close to home base in Bamburgh.

Sean, did you actually play the front nine? On my one game at Seahouses, we played the full 18 and I regret not playing the back nine twice, such was the disparity. I completely agree that (as at, say, Abersoch) there is a cracking nine-holer struggling to re-emerge here, but I guess that locally there is enough 9-hole competition from Warkworth and Alnmouth Village to render 18 holes quite an important distinguishing feature - even if the front 9 is very ordinary, by and large. As you say, the back nine is quite a different matter.Seahouses is a proper neighbourhood club, with decent beer, although the sandwiches were sadly on a par with the front nine the day we played.
