What the club says: As with all links golf the challenging factor is the wind and its unpredictability, which means that the course can play differently almost every day. The greens are renowned as true and quick and the course is guaranteed to be in good condition all year. Excellent drainage due to the sandy subsoil ensures that the course is rarely if ever closed. The course demands that you use almost every club in the bag and the experience is memorable and always a challenge. This is why Burnham and Berrow is chosen so frequently as hosts for many championship tournaments.
Super course and one to defo play. Surprisingly although we drove the 100+ miles from Redditch there are quite a few members there from the Midlands area - course guaranteed to be open and dry on its sandy base. (I can see the attraction compared to clay soil where we live.) Lucky to get a calm day.. I was really impressed by the views from some of the tees were really 'awesome' (i hate this overused word but it is definitely appropriate here) across the Bristol channel like on the 2nd and especially the 4th tee box and 15th ) Loved the shorter par 3's on 5 and 9 especially which were flanked by intimidating pot bunkers - true links style. Nice playing in between sand hills like on 1-3 rather like Silloth-on-Solway. The members were all very friendly on the first tee and in the clubhouse. Look forward to playing again ...£30 with a member is a bargain. Though £90 on your own is a bit steep I feel..... the Dormy house looks very nice so maybe worth an over-nighter as there is not much going on apart from holiday parks in the area it seems.

Played this course on a Friday morning, the Pro shop reception was warm and welcoming, pointing out all relevant information. Made our way to the first tee and opened up with a tight drive surrounded by large dunes, this continued until the 6th which kind off flattened out, until we reentered the dunes around the 12th hole. I found the bunkering to be top notch, the general condition of the course was excellent, met a few green keepers on the way chatted away with a couple. The rough is penal, if it goes in it does not come back out, so I lost quite a few balls, did not spoil my day at all.
There is a lot of false fronts to greens so you have to be accurate with your yardage. the course winds it way past a old church, pillbox and from the ninth tee a wreak can be sighted. Lots to see.
I was taken with this lovely links and would recommend to anyone who has a love of links golf, it is very good and well worth the visit.

It took me a while to adjust to the conditions while playing this challenging course, but once I started the 2nd loop I was able to really enjoy the course. Paths between holes can be quite steep in places, not an issue for me, but I know people who would struggle. Greens were very quick and in fantastic condition. Course is very exposed due to being a Links course set in the dunes and the wind will really influence your shots. Staff were friendly enough and Proshop had plenty of gear.
Super hot day, friendly welcome from all, proshop was outsatnding as was the food and the course quality in every aspect superb. Would play again any day.

Very good course, great day for golf but might have been different in the wind
Lovely course but you need your a game. Not one for the faint hearted. Exceptional layout with lovely views.
