Our Review

The Course – if you have not heard of Burnham and Berrow where have you been? Appreciate it’s not on everyone’s doorstep but if you play golf and strive to play some of the best courses the UK has to offer and are accessible for visitors, this is right up there. From the moment you arrive and feel the wind whipping in off the sea you know you are in for a good test of golf. This is a true links course it may not be the classic 9 out and 9 in but neither is St Andrews – the Home of Golf.

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!

Our Verdict

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

    Welcome

    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

    Practice Facilities

    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!

    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.

    Stuffiness

    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
