Bamburgh Golf Club, Red Barns Links, Northumberland. (1896 - WW1)

Founded in 1896.

The course was on Red Barns Links between Bamburgh and Seahouses  the professional was W Weatherston.

In 1900 the secretary at the 9-hole course was G Dickson, Radcliffe House, Bamburgh.

Below is the result of a match played at Amble (also defunct) on Saturday 6th July 1912. Interestingly the away team was called Bamburgh (not Castle) so it’s possible the earlier Bamburgh club could still have been in existence at this time.
