The Course

"A pure links golfing experience"
Embleton Bay and Dunes has a whinstone reefs and the sand is a ruddy gold color. At its southern end, a castle is situated on a black cliff promontory. A little trout stream, known as the Embleton Burn, begins in the inland moors, makes its way through an area of the old barony, woody denes, and channels, before reaching the centre of the bay. The coast from Newton to Dunstanburgh Point is made up of sandhills. Located on the North Sea, the bay is a good stopping place to view Atlantic Grey Seals on the rocks offshore, and is formed by the points known as Out Car and Emblestone to the north, and Dunstanburgh Point to the south.
Our visitors often tell us that they have felt the true "Links Experience".

Dunstanburgh Links sweeps around the magnificent Embleton Bay, with no less than eight holes fringeing the bay itself.

The course consists of fourteen Par 4's, thee Par 3's and one Par 5, four Par 4's being in excess of 400 yards from the Yellow Tees.
Flora in the dunes area include bloody crane's-bill, potentilla, eye bright, bedstraw, spring squill, wild thyme, and wild vetch, . Some of the bay's cliffs are a seabird site frequented by breeding eider ducks, fulmars, kittiwake, and shags. Both Grasshopper Warbler and Ring Ouzel breed on and around the course.
