With its tight fairways, impressive sand hills and thick, thick rough, a round at Burnham & Berrow is always a daunting prospect.

Standing on the 1st tee straining your eyes to try and make out the fairway, you realise pretty quickly this is a course where accuracy from the tee is paramount.

Founded in 1891, JH Taylor was the first professional at Burnham & Berrow, and that’s indicative of the rich history that abounds at this Somerset club.

Over the last 115 years it has played host to over 40 significant amateur competitions. All in all it’s a very welcoming and hospitable club. FB

+ Good variety for an out-and-back links; tough finishing holes; great value
– Odd approach route through a housing estate; locker rooms need upgrading
