36 Holes of beautiful championship links golf, set in the heart of North Devon. 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 (famed designer of Walton Heath, The Berkshire, and Delamere Forest to name just a few) created the East course in the 1920s. This venue has been used ever since for major amateur championships,notably the 1937 English Amateur when Frank Pennink was victorious. 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. The green complexes demand 100% commitment but are perfectly fair if you choose the right line on which to run in your ball.
