THE EVENT

WEDNESDAY 3 AUGUST
DUNSTANBURGH CASTLE

The James Braid designed Dunstanburgh Castle is a gem of a course that is so enjoyable to play. The opening holes offer elevation changes, blind shots, testing green complexes and thought provoking doglegs. The castle ruins feature prominently whilst taking on the back 9, adding a historical backdrop to what is always a fun golfing challenge.

THURSDAY 4 AUGUST
BAMBURGH CASTLE

It is a case of another day, another castle course, as we move a few miles up the coast for Round 2 at Bamburgh. Many who play here describe it as quirky and unique, and it is hard to argue – it opens up with back to back par 3s, and you have to wait until the 5th for a par 4. The undulating hillside terrain allows for jaw dropping views of some beautiful sandy beaches.

FRIDAY 5 AUGUST
GOSWICK

Our final round venue is Goswick Links – a layout with great pedigree that is often underrated. Having hosted Open Qualifying there should be no doubt about the test on offer, but at the same time there are several birdies to be made. Situated in the dunes just a couple of miles from the A1, the course plays as two loops of nine from the centrally located clubhouse.

ENTRY FEE £375 PER PAIR
Includes three competition rounds, all prizes and dinner after the final round.
