Played Burnham & Berrow on 23rd January 2012 and it was in top condition! For £35 on the county card, it was an absolute steal. The Greens were running quick and true, exactly what you would hope for on a course ranked so highly in the rankings. As mentioned in previous reviews, the middle section of the course is little different to the rest, however this is largely due to a lack of dunes. I didn’t think it was bland at all, just different (even Saunton has a few holes like this). Most notable holes at Burnham would be the 1st, 13th, 14th and 17th. Each of these really epitomises everything you would want in links golf, undulating fairways, big bunkers and large greens. When comparing this course to others in the south west, I think Burnham is better and more enjoyable than Royal North Devon, but fall slightly short of the amazing experience that is Saunton (East). This course is well is well worth the trip!
