Saunton Golf Club – West Course

What we say

Some believe Saunton Golf Club’s West Course is every bit as good as the East Course. That’s a matter of opinion, but it’s hard to argue against it being one of the best golf courses in the south west of England. 

Saunton Golf Club is one of Britain’s premier 36-hole venues and when you are there to play the stellar East, you should certainly also play the West.

Some suggest it virtually the equal of its vaunted sister. But while that seems a little fanciful, BBC golf correspondent Iain Carter, who is knows Devon golf better than most, is a confirmed fan.

“Having already played and thoroughly enjoyed the East, I found the West to be a similarly fulfilling experience,” he told Golf World. “Slightly narrower, particularly over the opening holes, it is a fine test of accuracy.

“Sitting amid giant dunes you don’t see the sea, but the waves can easily be heard and there is no mistaking you are playing fabulous links golf. I played with my wife and son, so can vouch for it being rewarding for all ages and abilities.”
