Burnham and Berrow golf course is named the best in the west

Burnham and Berrow Golf Course has this week been named the top course in the south west and the 37th best in the UK by a sports magazine.

Golf Monthly's latest issue contains a feature about the top 100 courses in the UK and Ireland in which the Burnham-On-Sea course is highly praised.

Put together over a period of two years by assessors, golf clubs, readers and industry experts, the magazine took into account four criteria - the quality and test of the course design, condition and presentation, visual appeal and ambience.

Michael Blight, Secretary of Burnham & Berrow, told "We are delighted to have been ranked so highly."

"The assessors were impressed by the continued high standard of course maintenance and the changes that we have made to the course since the last published rankings in 2010; hence moving five places up the league table."

He added: "To have all our partner courses in the region - Royal North Devon, Saunton, St Enodoc and Trevose - ranked in the top 100 is testament to the quality of golf on offer here in the south west and to be ranked as the best in such company is a credit to the greens team we have here at Burnham."

The course last year hosted the R&A Boys Championship and The Brabazon Trophy - for the fifth time – and in doing so become the first course to hold both championships in the same year.
