This a fantastic golf club for any serious golfer to visit. The view from the club house over the two courses is magical. When you venture onto the courses you quickly discover that both test every element of your game even on a calm day and if the wind blows beware. The links are fabulous in the traditional sense, there... More

What makes Saunton Golf Club a great place to visit? 1. 2 honest golf courses that punish bad shots. 2. From tee to green you can tell that the club really cares about your golfing experience. 3. I had played the Shire near London the week before, I hasten to add it is not a links course but compared to... More

My wife and I played the East course immediately after many hours of heavy rain and, despite some casual water, the course played magnificently. If you are looking for a classic links track with tight fairways, superb greens and a good variety of holes you won't be disappointed with this course. Also, try the homemade cakes in the clubhouse, especially... More

East or West both classic links, great support facilities, driving range, short game and putting areas. Good food and well stocked bar. Professional shop extremely well stocked with bargains all round, staff very knowledgeable and helpful. A must visit for any golfer! I would rank Saunton top 20 in UK!

I played the East course earlier this year as part of an organised competition. The course was in superb condition, the facilities were excellent as was the food and service in the club house.

We enjoyed our twilight round (after 2.30pm) on the West course. Lots of blind tee shots so a course planner would be a good idea (there are no diagrams on the tees). The course was in good condition, with the greens particularly good. Keep your eye on the ball because the rough is punishing! Buggy was quite expensive at £30... More

Both of the courses are excellent. I use the course for American VIP visitors to the area and they love the course. The new club house is open and bright and staff were very friendly

We played both the East and the West course. The East is the better course, but the West is also very good and a little more playable. The condition was excellent, the greens could have been a fraction quicker. The starter was great at the start of the round to get us going. After the round the clubhouse is a... More
