DESCRIPTION: If the R&A ever wants to move The Open away from its regular haunts, Saunton will be high on the list of alternatives. High dunes tower over many of the fairways, and though relatively short in total length, there are eight par 4s of 400 yards or more, and it has one of the toughest starts and finishes of any links in the British Isles.
