North Shore | NCG Top 100s: GB&I Golf Resorts

North Shore is one of the most coastal venues on the NCG Top 100s: GB&I Golf Resorts list, situated on the North Sea coastline in Skegness. The golf course at the resort is one of more than 200 around the world designed by James Braid, while the small but glorious hotel supplies beautiful accommodation for all its guests. 
The golf course at North Shore was designed by James Braid, a five-time winner of the Open Championship, and a legend of the game. The course has a range of parkland and links holes, mixed in with each other to supply a stunning test for all golfers. The course is only 6,200 yards, but there are no easy rounds at North Shore thanks to the intense winds coming off the sea. 
North Shore is home to a 34-room hotel, with each room featuring an en-suite bathroom, along with flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi. The hotel has a range of rooms on offer, including Twin, Double and Family Rooms, while there is also a Lodge building that houses several Twin Rooms. 
The location of North Shore is perfect for those that love the sea and the coast. Walking, hiking and bike trails are all over the area, while there are plenty of other attractions in Skegness and Lincolnshire, for the kids and adults to keep themselves entertained with.

North Shore Overview | NCG Top 100s: GB&I Golf Resorts

A James Braid Design

James Braid, the man behind the designs of Royal Cinque Ports, the Church Course at St Enodoc and the Championship Course at Carnoustie, was also the designer of the 18-hole golf course at North Shore. The course has a glorious mix of parkland and links holes, and there are only two par 5s on the layout, one that measures just 6,200 yards from the tips.  
The first of those par 5s comes at the opening hole, so better players will be looking to take advantage straightaway. The other comes at the 7th in a Par 37 front nine. The back nine is much shorter, at less than 2,900 yards, but it is only a Par 34 thanks to seven par 4s and a pair of par 3s. The 5th is the hardest hole on the property, and one of two holes that run along the coastline (the 10th being the other).  
One of the trickiest holes at North Shore is the 14th despite it being the shortest hole on the course. Its level of difficulty depends on the wind, with several clubs in the bag in play depending on the direction and strength of the sea breeze. Two tough par 4s follow, with 15 and 16 both crossing the 415-yard threshold. The closing hole is only 320 yards and bigger hitters may well go for the final green with their drives, especially if the wind is at their backs.  

Accommodation On The Coast

The hotel is the closest to the water in the town of Skegness, giving guests unparalleled views over the North Sea from several rooms in the hotel at North Shore. The hotel houses 34 rooms, each of which comes with an en-suite bathroom, along with flat-screen TV and complimentary Wi-Fi. 
It is not the largest selection of accommodation, but each room is comfortable and elegant. There is a range of Twin, Small Double, Double and Family Rooms, along with Sea View Rooms which offer guests those glorious views. There is also a selection of Twin Rooms in the Lodge, which sits separately from the main hotel building.  
The gastronomic options at North Shore are all a nod to the designer of the golf course. James’ Restaurant is the main eatery at the Lincolnshire resort, while the Braid Bar is the place to go for a nightcap or two.
