Course Description:

Situated on the North Northumberland coast Turnstone takes its name from the Victorian lighthouse just off-shore, which in turn took its name from the small wader birds that frequent these shores in large numbers Following in the traditions of the links up and down the coast the course wends its way out of the village and down between the dunes to the sea. Coming in at just under 7400 yards this par 72 layout provides a great links test. The par threes will challenge you especially when the wind gets up and many of the greens nestle amongst the fescue-lined dunes. Make sure you conserve your energy on the shorter front nine as heading back up from the shore the back nine will bite back - with three long par 5s and only a single par 3. This is topped off by the uphill 606 yard 17th demanding a precise shot into the roadside green. The final test is the long par 4 up to the clubhouse, a hole which is probably going to be lined by some tourists enjoying the late summer sunshine.
