Burnham & Berrow - Championship Course
Designer: Dr. Allistair Mackenzie & Harry Colt
Length: 6,958 yards
A bona fide hidden gem with cleverly-chosen natural green sites and a tough closing stretch. A strong links course beside the Bristol Channel where if the wind blows you will be tested to the limits. A very fair test of golf. With Mackenzie & Colt in charge of course design, it is easy to see why this historic links is set out to resemble the links of Southern Scotland. Being in the Northern part of the South West, Somerset is not renowned for the quality of its courses so Burnham & Berrow sticks out like the proverbial sore thumb. With many fairways and greens overlooked by giant sand dunes, it’s the South West’s answer to Royal Birkdale and is now widely considered one of England’s finest links. Watch out for the lightning quick greens.
