The East Course

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

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. 

The quality of the Courses has long been recognised and they both regularly appear in the Top 100 surveys of the Best Course in UK. The East Course was redesigned in 1919 by the famous course architect W. Herbert Fowler and although slight modifications have been made since the war the course is essentially unchanged. They are true links courses with the holes settling in between the dunes with little or no assistance from man. 2 superb courses and a must play links for any serious golfer.
