The land at Braunton Burrows has hosted golf since 1897 and given us today’s premier golf course in the West Country since Herbert Fowler created the East course in the 1920s. He also designed Walton Heath, The Berkshire, and Delamere Forest to name a few. The West course emulates the general characteristics of the East course but has its own distinctions and offers no weak hole. They all require clever and strong placing of your ball off the tee to get at the greens with your approach.
Visitors are normally accepted weekdays and weekends after 9:30am by prior arrangement.

A stunning location behind the dunes of Saunton Sands. 2 of the best back to back links you can find and quite different from one another. The greens are fast and were exceptionally well kept. East edges it from the variety of holes and the features that run throughout the course but West is equally challenging - especially when the prevailing south westerly's blow hard. …
