A piece of an old golf course falls into the sea.

People who belong to a golf club are “very concerned” because pieces of turf fell into the water due to coastal erosion.

The Alnmouth Village Golf Club is England’s oldest nine-hole links course. Because it is close to the coast and is low to the ground, it has been flooded many times.

In this most recent storm, however, the North Sea damaged a part of the path that hadn’t been damaged before.

The North Sea is located in northwest Europe.

Ian Taylor, the club’s secretary, said, “If nothing is done, we will lose the golf course in the end.”
Ian Simpson, a member of the club, said, “We are very worried and need to find new ways to deal with it.”

“Perhaps we can use boulders to prevent further erosion.”

John Graham, the club’s treasurer and a member for 65 years, said, “We had a big problem near the boathouse in the early 1960s.” It was about 15 yards when the sea got in.”

That area was more unstable in the 1990s, but we buried some pipes and used marram glass to make it stable again.

But where the problem is now—what we call link end—we’ve never had a problem there before.”

Gordon Castle, a councillor, said that the situation is “very worrying.”

“I’ve contacted the cabinet member for the environment at Northumberland County Council to see if it is possible that money allocated for coastal erosion could be used to protect this spot,” said the man.

“It is worth noting that there has been many changes to the coast over the years, and not all of it can be prevented.”
