Burnham and Berrow has continued to rise through the rankings as its Championship Course's lofty reputation was recognised in the latest Top 100 Golf Courses in the UK & Ireland Ranking from Golf Monthly, with the venue in the South West of England ascending into the Top 30.

Burnham and Berrow Feature Review

Commenting on behalf of Burnham and Berrow, Managing Secretary, Karen Drake said, “When I first joined the club 5 years ago we set out some ambitious goals and one of those was to make that small, but very hard jump into the top 30 golf courses in the UK & Ireland, so naturally this is a very special moment for our members and hard-working staff.

“We are fortunate to have a thriving membership that is very progressive, and we are constantly looking at ways in which we can improve the club for the benefit of everyone.  Now we have reached the top 30 we will continue to invest in the club with the hope of reaching a higher position in the future.”

Part of the famed Atlantic Links group of leading South West England links courses, Burnham and Berrow was founded in 1890 and is blessed with 27-holes of golf that stretch along the Bristol Channel coastline. Offering a truly exhilarating golfing experience and inspiring views, the club’s Championship Course has been the venue for many prestigious golf events, including the British Ladies’ Amateur Championships, Brabazon Trophy, British Boys and English Championships.

From the first tee shot you know you are somewhere special. The Championship Course is laid out in the traditional manner with nine holes out and nine back. The first nine holes skirt the sand dunes and coastline northwards, turning inland and southwards and then following the coast road through Berrow, past the Church and back into Burnham.
