What our visitors say about us

The day went really well, all who attended were really impressed with Bellingham and it's facilities. Our greenkeepers were very impressed with the course, said it was absolutely lovely and it did look brilliant from what i saw. Can you pass on my thanks to Alec and the catering staff as they all loved the hospitality and food. A few said the sticky toffee pudding was worth the trip alone! A final thank you for the kind donation of a free fourball voucher which we used for our nearest the pin.

Firstly i must thank on behalf to everyone from the car park assistants, bar staff, and organisers for the fantastic welcome we were given when we arrived and were superbly looked after from start to finish. We all fully enjoyed the day and thought the bacon butties were first class!

I have just discovered this beautiful course after the lockdown. Wow it is in top condition, well done greenkeepers. It is a tough course, especially the 18th, it's the jewel in Northumberlands crown!

Tee'd off this afternoon. Much respect to the greens staff. Course was in great condition and in better shape than some much more expensive locations not too far away. Well done, keep up the good work!

My golfing partner and I travelled up to Bellingham yesterday, to play a round under the 1893 Club scheme. We had a grand time. the young man on duty made us very welcome. We had a couple of butties and coffee before venturing out. Yes, the course was wet, but that did not detract from our enjoyment. Lots of very interesting holes. We were a bit shattered by the time we finished, we are not used to banks and hills !!! We will be back next year, thank you for allowing us to play your course, which given the weather conditions, was in good nick.

We discovered this hidden treasure, created from the landscape itself, courtesy of a golf day, in July 2019 A fabulous course with holes like no others ,anywhere. Holes that make you think, then surprise you and finally beat you. A proper test of golf for any handicap. Top tip take a buggy . A lovely local club, with really friendly clubhouse. A gem!

“A true hidden gem - Bellingham Golf Club was a course I had never previously had the opportunity to visit however, my company recently attended one of their charity golf events (this one in particular was for The Brain Tumour Charity) and we could not have been any more grateful for the invitation. Stunning views of the Northumberland area, an impeccably well kept course with a variety of challenging holes and staff whom made us feel as though we had been members for years. A combination of all of this plus the superb weather meant for an incredible day out with plenty of laughs and money raised for a great cause. My company will most certainly be looking to reattend the charity day next year but I will definitely be looking to get some practice in at this great facility before then.”

“Sunday lunch at Bellingham Golf Club comes highly recommended. We visited as a group of 8 last weekend and we will definitely return again. Staff offered a warm welcome, looked after us incredibly well and the food was amazing whilst offering great value. We also got lucky with the weather and enjoyed the fantastic views across the Northumbrian countryside. Thanks and hope to see you again soon”.

Just a wee note to say we enjoyed our day at Bellingham. The course was in great condition, very tidy with some challenging holes, especially the par 3's and the views were lovely. Hard to believe it only went to 18 holes in 1996. Mr Wilson did a fantastic job and the memorial on the course was a nice touch. The Staff in the clubhouse made us very welcome .

I visited your course with the Silver Mongoose Golf Society this month and would just like to say what a fantastic welcome we received. The course was in great condition for this early in the season and the meal afterwards was excellent. If anybody wants to play a great course at a great price then this is the one for you. Nothing is too much trouble even when I left my winter Mits in the golf buggy they were found and returned promptly for which I am most grateful. I did try and put feedback on your website but could not find were to put it but would like you to add my comments please so everybody knows what a great set up you have there.
