From the foreword:
Golf Monthly’s “Hidden Gems Handbook” says of Bamburgh Castle Golf Club, “This is quite possibly the most beautiful and most beautifully situated golf course in England.”
Lord Armstrong who, with the support of his friends, funded the club in 1904 would have derived great satisfaction from this comment. He knew that two earlier golf clubs in Bamburgh had failed and that the success of this venture would be largely dependant upon Summer visitors. What Lord Armstrong & his friends did not know was that, within 40 years, the future of both club and country would be threatened by two World Wars. The subsequent story of Bamburgh Castle Golf Club is one of struggle, survival and success.
The story is told in the context both of the game’s history and the history of Bamburgh Village. Happily, after a hundred years of golf on Budle Hills, the pure air, the views of Cheviot, of the Farne Islands, of Lindisfarne and of the ever varied sands and sea are unchanged from those that our forebears and the founder of the club enjoyed.

About the artist:
Kenneth Reed studied at the Newcastle College of Art & Design, becoming a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts in 1962 and a lecturer at Cleveland College of Art & Design in 1969. His background in design and illustration combined with a passion for golf and keen observation of every Open Championship since 1968 have inspired watercolours that are as evocative as they are distinctively accurate. His golf course landscapes capture both the beauty and the challenge of golf.
