What the club says: The quality of the Courses has long been recognised and they both regularly appear in the Top 100 surveys of the Best Course in UK. The East Course was redesigned in 1919 by the famous course architect W. Herbert Fowler and although slight modifications have been made since the war the course is essentially unchanged. They are true links courses with the holes settling in between the dunes with little or no assistance from man. 2 superb courses and a must play links for any serious golfer.

Saunton East

Great challenging course, you would need to play it a couple of times to get used to it to be able to hit a good score. Very difficult greens to put on if they were fast they would be a nightmare. I do think the green fees are a bit expensive though.

Immaculate condition

Immaculate condition. Brutal off the whites but friendly off the yellows. Very welcoming, just a shame about the big price increases post-covid.

Wow, awesome golf venue

Two spectacular courses and just a great set up. Everything was class there and although the course probably didn't suit my driving game (especially the East) the challenge was brilliant. The east punished anything offline severely and the greens were challenging, but beautiful. The west was a very different proposition, with a few more holes to get the driver out, but lots of thought needed.
I would say this was possibly the best golf club I've been to, however it was reflected in the price, it was pricey!

East is best

4th time in 4 years for summer golf. I adore this course. The practice facilities are incredible..... with 2 practice putting greens, a 10 bay range range, a chipping and short game area and 2 lots of nets. I could spend hours just in these. The club house is fabulous, the views across the course are amazing and the fod is goodand not over priced. 75p for a mug of coffee. £7.50 for the most expensive enormous club sandwich. Brilliant value.

The course is just class! The wind was blowing 3 clubs on front nine which made it interesting and we all suffered in it, but it did not detract, but sadly it afected our tee shots alot so spentmost of the first 6 holes ball hunting and waving grous through. We did the twilight after 2.30pm (yes 2.30! which is amazing value at £45 for this quality of course.) There is a top review of this course so go read it. In fact forget that..... just book and go. I'd do a day round trip as it is 2 hour 45 from the Midlands each way.

Even bumped into some elderly fellas from Burnham and Berrow who make the 90 minute trip to play, which speaks volumes.

Email [email protected] she is great at sorting it all out for you!

We then played the West course the day after. We all agreed East is best by quite a long way!

Fantastic value for money. Payed less than £50 for a late tee off on Top 100 UK & ROI course in summer. Course immaculate. Great links test with some really interesting hole in the middle section. Local area is v.nice too if coming for more than the golf. Highly recommend

boy does the wind blow

Played both east and west courses and in very good condition. Greens very fast and a very very strong easterly wind made scoring difficult. At £100 per round for visitors its expensive ( £50 for members guest ) Great Pro shop and good bar facilities.

What a course

The East course is fantastic & very challenging especially with any wind. The greens were in excellent condition. I will certainly be playing here on my next visit to Devon.

Love this course!!

Favourite course in UK.
Third time here in three years. Love every hole.
Love holes like 1, 6, 15, 16, 18 where the fairways runs off at an angle to your tee shot position so you need to decide how much to chop off/how much to carry/how much dare you run off..... A real test!

So many memorable holes. It has to be played if you are a serious golfer. Amazing prices in August £50. We played £50 for twilight (after 2.30 in July) so you don't need to pay full price for really exceptional golf!

They even do a 'country rate' membership (correct spelling).....as do Burnham & Berrow ...... for people +100 mile away knowing you can't get there that often............so for the discerning golfer who doesn't mind a few hours in the car for quality golf .......!

East! Wow! Best course I have played

Played last August and couldn't wait to return. Finally managed it today to celebrate a big birthday coming up. The course is just majestic. Set in a cauldron of dunes. Today the colours were amazing set amingst the dunes and the green rolling countryside. Made all the better by the blue skies!

Start with the magnificent club house. How reasonable. Asked for a coffee 'would that be a cup or a mug sir!?' £1. Bargain!
Also August green fees of £50 is well worth it

Really recommmend the course planner which gives full detail and photos from first tee. I studied it well before and during play and it is a shot saver for sure as you can't tell how much the rushes/rough dig into your tee shots!

I can't wait to play again. Even though 6444 yards off the whites it didn't feel too long

A really classy detail is the paths that guide you around. No concrete. Just crushed sea. Shells to remind you where you are,!

I didn't use the practice facilities but seemed pretty good esp for short game practice
