Golf Courses at Saunton Sands Hotel
Herbert Fowler's East Course is ranked just outside England's top ten, and at 6,700 yards it provides a stern test to even the most skilled golfers. The rugged sand dunes of Braunton Burrows are the setting for this fine golfing destination, a site that has been designated as being of international importance by UNESCO. The real challenge of the East comes in the shape of the tough par-4s, eight of which measure over 400 yards, while the charm of the course is accentuated by the feeling that every hole is cut distinctly through the dunes.
The West Course was originally opened in the 1930s, but was used as a training field during the Second World War and subsequently lay dormant for some 40 years until the esteemed Frank Pennink revived it in 1975. The West may be shorter than the more prestigious East Course, but it remains a considerable test, with a network of burns and streams interspersed through the dunes. Both courses are reputed to boast some of the finest putting surfaces in England, and together they represent a truly terrific links golf destination.
A youthful Sergio Garcia won the British Boys Championship around Saunton's East Course in 1997.
