drives up business for Burnham-On-Sea Golf Range
of golfers from across the area swung into Burnham-On-Sea Golf
Range during the snowy weather after most local golf courses were
closed by the extreme conditions.
March, one of the PGA Professionals at Burnham Golf Range, which
is based at Oak Tree Farm in Edithmead, told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"Collecting the white golf balls in the snow proved to be
the proverbial needle in the haystack, but Burnham Golf Range
remained open every day during the wintry weather."
almost all the surrounding courses either closed or severely affected
by the snow, local golfers who had been unable to get their golfing
fix were able to visit us to keep practising."
range is open each day over the holiday, except New Year's Day,
from 10am until 6pm each day (3pm New Year's Eve) and will then
revert back to normal opening hours from next Tuesday (9pm closing
midweek). Call 01278 787979 for further details.
