Burnham & Berrow Golf Club is a 27-hole members golf club in Somerset, England which has hosted many of the leading amateur golf tournaments in Britain, including the Brabazon Trophy and English Amateur.As of August 2014 the golf course had been rated as the 23rd best golf course in England and the 52nd best course in the British Isles by golf club review site Top 100 Golf Courses.HistoryThe club was first opened as Burnham Golf Club on a 9-hole layout designed by Charles Gibson, however the club was extended to an 18-hole layout by Herbert Fowler by 1910 and was renamed to its current name of Burnham & Berrow Golf Club. Even in its early years the course began to host high-level amateur tournaments hosting the British Ladies Amateur Golf Championship in 1906.In 1913 a further redesign of the course was made by Harry Colt which redesigned the course into much of the layout that currently still stands, the work on this redesign was completed in 1923. Following the redesigns the club would go on to host the British Ladies Amateur Golf Championship again in 1923 and 1938 and the 1930 English Amateur.The first professional at the club was John Henry Taylor, who would later go on to win 5 Open Championships and captain Great Britain at the 1933 Ryder Cup.

  • Excellent traditional links course. Course in fairly good condition, despite the poor early season weather. Plenty of blind shots and undulations on and around the greens. A good test of your entire game. It can be very tough if the wind blows. Four excellent par 3's, play those in 12, you'll be delighted.
  • Made to feel welcome from moment arrived, stayed in Dormy House - played in Feb Open and Meal after playing was excellent - compliments to Sean the chef and all round top bloke. Sean and all staff were great and had a memorable time. All are a credit to the club. More trips planned this year but this is well worth a visit, make sure got you A game. Thanks again
  • You must play this course. Its one the best courses in the UK. Its an absolute brute of a challenge off the back tees
  • Played it years ago in a club match, fantastic course still ranks as best course I have ever played.
  • Amazingly stunning course in terrific condition, every hole is different and the views are wonderful. Clubhouse is even better than it was a few years ago, team are very helpful. New pro shop is awesome. A great day out. Dormey House has very comfortable beds!
