Our picturesque plot of 26 Beach Villas is located in a prime position just 5 minutes’ drive or 15 minutes’ walk from Devon’s number one golf course Saunton. This award winning golf course is situated on Braunton Burrows – the largest sand dune system in England and the core of The North Devon UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Due to Braunton Burrows’ UNESCO status, Saunton Golf Course has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a Special Area of Conservation (SAC). The club has been established for over 100 years and boasts 2 spectacular courses – The East Course which is ranked No.32 in the Golf World “Top 100 Courses”, and the West Course which is ranked No. 67. In fact, there is only one golf club with 2 better links courses in the country and that is St Andrews –the largest public golf complex in Europe!
The lush green landscape of North Devon is home to many highly-renowned golf courses, shown on the map below.
(7.1 miles away) Willingcott Valley is a dramatic golf course with fantastic panoramic views. Off the yellow tees, the course has great visual impact, but the carries are still fairly manageable. It will provide a great day out provided you use your handicap allowance sensibly.
(12.4 miles away) Situated on top of the rugged cliffs of the North Devon coast, every tee has an awe-inspiring view over the sea, from the Welsh Coast and Lundy Island, to as far as the eye can see on the Atlantic horizon.
(11.2 miles away) We have a 23 bay golf range, floodlit and fully undercover, using ‘proper golf balls’ with viewing area and seating for the family, a ‘proper’ putting and chipping green, selection of golfing accessories, clubs, shoes and trolley hire facilities, professional lessons, restaurant and bar.
(17.8 miles away) The course stretches out to over 7,000 yards from the championship tees (used for the West of England Championship – one of the top amateur events in the calendar), although most will agree that it’s a suitably stiff test at 6,650 yards, especially when the wind blows. Even with today’s modern equipment a par score for the top scratch players is never easy.
