Module 5 Links Golf in South West England

In England there are some areas that have excellent courses but their location is not suitable to accommodate the crowds that attend major Professional tournaments like the Open Championship. In this module North Devon is an example of such an area, with Saunton East high in the rankings, Saunton West and Royal North Devon at Westward Ho! completing an excellent trio of seaside links. Here you can get quality traditional courses at a very sensible price. On route to or from Devon you can also play another highly ranked seaside links Burnham and Berrow.

Royal North Devon at Westward Ho! was founded in 1864, it is the oldest golf course in the England. The course is over 7,000 yards from the championship tees, although most will agree that it’s a suitably stiff test at 6,650 yards, especially when the wind blows. The playing surfaces are second to none, boasting year-round fast and true greens, firm tees and tight fairway lies, which require crisply struck iron shots. To sum it up, this is true golf played out under big skies and against a backdrop of crashing surf. (6653 yards, par 72).

Saunton has two traditional links courses with views of North Devon's beautiful coast and the river, sea and golden sands as a background. Saunton East is a heavyweight proposition that takes no prisoners. The strength of this course lies in the long par 4 holes that usually require a driver from the tee. The wind plays an important part in the decision-making process. Howeve, the perception of toughness is best captured by the story of a former club secretary’s dog who retired after a career haul of 20,000 golf balls - all found among Saunton’s colourful gorse, willow scrub and buckthorn. (6708 yards, par 73).

Saunton West is a championship course in its own right and arguably needs more attention to course management than its wonderful neighbour the East. It needs thoughtful club selection from the tee and precision into well-guarded greens. It is somewhat shorter than the East course, but it has some extreme doglegs that call for astute shot making. (6356 yards, par 71).

Burnham and Berrow was founded in 1890. The first nine skirt the sand dunes and coastline northwards, turning inland and southwards and then following the coast road through Berrow, past the Church and back into Burnham. As with all links golf the wind is unpredictable, which means that the course can play differently almost every day. The greens are true and quick, this championship course demands that you use almost every club in the bag and the experience is memorable and always a challenge. (6793 yard, par 71).
