Garcia and McIlroy join the juniors
17th July, July 2018 | 0
We played the course end of June as part of a media day after the completion of 3 new tees – 6/9/11. Any redevelopment of a course has to add “something” to the course and to start moving tee’s on a course that sits in the top 35 in the UK is a brave thing to do but like with the management of the course Burnham and Berrow is innovative and wants to move forward. Do the new positions add something to the course? Most definitely and as Richard the Course manager pointed out they didn’t bring in new sand and grass they moved it from other areas of the course making the new tees very natural looking – as if they have always been there!
Have played Burnham a few times now and it never fails to live up to my expectation or excitement – you seriously want to play good golf from the moment you arrive. Dormy House for anyone wanting to stay over and play more than one day, if you are ever short of a player give me a call. Wonderful fitting centre on site with all the kit!
Burnham is not that big a place and it is signposted from the main road
Pro was very helpful with a well-stocked shop, the bar was like a home from home, leather settees and armchairs, just what you need after 18 holes
Some of the best facilities you will find – great driving range and chipping area with a practice green right next to the first tee, exactly where it should be!
Lovely atmosphere and food we had was exceptional, breakfast hit the spot.
What can you say about a piece of land that was always meant to have a golf course – why did it ever take so long, Somerset’s Home of Golf.
far from it, made to feel very welcome and the members love the fact that visitors are playing “their” course. Would you play again – every day of the week if I could. Cannot say better than that
