Review for Burnham & Berrow (Championship)

Reviewer Score:


Played this on Wednesday and it was a classic dry brown links. The course is eclectic in that the back half of the front nine is more on the estuary than the dunes. But it is a truly great fun links course with some immense dunes and some very dramatic holes with greens tucked in hollows and tees perched on high dunes. One thing though the legendary greens were not that good. Very variable, reasonably slow and bumpy. I can only presume the dry year has caused them problems and the green keepers were spraying all the greens when we were there. Although pretty traditional they are a welcoming club and have the best opening and closing links holes I have played. The par threes are all very special holes of varying lengths as well. It is actually very easy to get to being just 2 miles off the M5 south of Bristol so I am not sure where the out of the way tag comes from. Try in comparison getting to Rye, Littlestone, Deal or Hayling Island
