Alnmouth Village Golf Club Synopsis
An opening par three of 182 yards is followed by a stretch of 8 par fours. The eight par 4's range from 294 yards to 473 yards with the longest being the 8th. Three of the nine holes measure less the 300 yards. At just 2790 yards, it is solid golf played firm and fast!
