Burnham & Berrow Golf Club

Telephone: (0)1278 785760
Region: North Somerset - more
Burnham Golf Club was opened in 1891. It was a nine hole course laid out amongst the sand dunes of the Berrow Warren close to the Burnham lighthouse. It had been designed by the golf professional at Royal North Devon, Charles Gibson, using the design principles of the day; if there was a large sand dune you hit the ball over it and if there was a deep hollow then there would be a green. By 1896 the members wanted to extend the course to Berrow Church and the Lords of the Manor agreed only if the name of the club was changed to Burnham & Berrow Golf Club.
A further extension beyond the church followed in 1901, and in 1910 the first ‘professional’ course designer, Herbert Fowler, a member of the Club, extended the course to over 6000 yards. It was in this phase that Fowler designed the famous Church Hole and the current 18th hole. In 1913 Harry Colt produced a blueprint to turn the course into the challenge it is today more

The Championship Course
The original course was formed as a nine hole course in 1890 on a strip of land called the Warren between the town of Burnham and the village of Berrow.
The development of this course to the championship course it is today continued over the next 30 years with many of the leading course designers of the period having an input into the course architecture. Herbert Fowler and Hugh Alison were members of Burnham and both had an important part to play in improving the links. So to a lesser extent did Harold Hilton and Dr Alistair Mackenzie but the shape of today’s course more

The Channel Course
In 1972 the M5 motorway link between Bristol and Exeter was established and the Club decided that this would be an ideal opportunity to develop a second course.

Fred Hawtree was asked to design the new course, to be called the Channel Course as it lay on the coastal side of the main links, and it was finished in 1977. The layout is excellent with several extremely good holes which vie with some on the Championship Course. The course is approximately 3000 yards long and now has a redesigned 2nd hole and a new 8th hole more
