Tough course, didn't find it that exciting but perhaps I didn't do it justice, think it needs playing again.

A great course, I played off the whites which was probably a mistake as I played poorly. Nothing to do with the course which was fair. My one tip would be don’t go in the rough!

Fabulous course. 2 x 18 holes and you won't be disappointed on either one. These courses are ranked in top 20 in U.K. And you can see why. Beautiful setting and the backdrop is superb. Courses are kept in top condition. Some of the bunkers are so deep. You need your a game on these courses. I could play again and again.
Best to get a member to sign you in as it's not cheap

One of the best course at the southwest of England. High quality and high difficulty.
it should be home of high profile competitions in Uk and Europe. The green-keeper do a excellent job with both courses. The East make you work hard to score decently.

This course sits alongside it's more famous East course very well. A good selection of holes and terrain that will test your distance control and strategy.

WOW. THE COURSE IS AMAZING. WHAT A BACK DROP YOU HAVE ON EVERY HOLE. MOST OF THE HOLES YOU ARE PLAYING BLIND. A REALLY TOUGH COURSE BUT VERY ENJOYABLE AT THE SAME TIME. LINKS GOLF IS VERY DIFFERENT TO YOUR NORMAL GOLF. FAIRWAYS COULD OF DONE WITH SOME WATER. THE SAND IN THE BUNKERS WAS SO SOFT AND FLUFFY. ACTUALLY MADE IT EASIER TO GET OUT OF THEM. IF YOU ARE IN THE AREA THEN YOU MUST VISIT THIS MAD COURSE. YOU WILL BE HIGHLY REWARDED WITH STRAIGHT SHOTS. THE ROUGH IS LONG AND UNFORGIVING. AVOID AT ALL COSTS. GO AND PLAY THIS COURSE AND TEST YOUR GOLFING ABILITY. 26/8/13. Greens had been holitised and played really bad today. A bit early in the year for that. Made putting very difficult but still liked it.

Very very hard and testing for me and the bunkers were over 6ft deep.
I struggled the whole way round but really really loved the course. A must for any golfer !!!!

Played the West Course in the worst weather possible and in failing light, but somehow managed to enjoy myself! Absolutely classic links course. I'd like to come back and have another go on a nicer day. If it's your first time you need to hit the ball to what you can see, any further and it's in trouble, don't take short cuts until you know they exist. The West Course is a bit tight on line so try not to monster the ball unless you can do it straight.

For visitors, the club is friendly with great facilities. If you take the "£40 for a round including meal" option, make sure they are certain the kitchen will be open when you finish. I had to ask for a small refund even after assurances by the pro shop that food would be available, which was quite embarrassing and left me feeling very hungry in my wet kit! This sort of thing happens now and again and they were very good about the refund, so thanks Saunton Golf Club.

I'd recommend to others.

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.
