Weston-Super-Mare Golf Club


3-star: a good golf course with many fine features.
   Weston-Super-Mare Golf Club Est. 1892

Where2Golf says: 

Weston-Super-Mare Golf Club: This is a pleasant links course even though the start is a tad chaotic for the first time visitor - the 1st, 18th, 10th, 11th and 9th green all seem to compete for a share of the terrain that begins to stretch out in front of you. Don't expect too much in the way of sand dunes here, the course is reasonably flat and open, with water ditches, thick rough and some wonderfully renovated bunkers providing the key defences. A large bush-clad bank runs along the sea-ward side of the course, cutting off ocean views from all but two holes - the 5th and 6th. These two par-4's are accessed via a walk across a small caravan park (the seaside feel is never far away !) and they provide the best views across the Bristol Channel to Wales on the other side. Uphill Church, perched on a half-moon cliff rising from the River Axe, provides another interesting feature and a useful sighter for one or two drives.

Did you know?

The signature hole here is the 15th, a difficult 458 yard par-4 with a blind drive over a mound and a long-approach to a well-defended green - it is probably just as difficult to score par here as at the 17th hole of St Andrews Old Course, on which this hole was apparently modelled.

Tournaments:
The American Express formerly known as the Desert Classic, and for many years played as the Bob Hope Desert Classic, will once again be decided on the Pete Dye designed Stadium course at PGA West (Jan 16-19).
The Players Championship:  for the 39th time, TPC Sawgrass, another iconic Pete Dye design, will host The Players Championship for one of the richest first prizes in world golf (March 12-15).
 
Who's Who: 
Pete Dye:  one of the greatest golf course architects of this or any generation passes away aged 94. His contribution to golf course design, and the legacy he leaves is immense.
Jack Nicklaus:  like Pete Dye a native of Ohio, actually started his golf course design career working together with Dye. In 1967 Dye asked Nicklaus to input to his design for The Golf Club in Columbus, Ohio. Two years later they worked together on the revered Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina.

Latest golf course reviews
Sutton Coldfield Golf Club: located to the north of Birmingham, occupies a small corner of the wonderfully expansive and natural environs of Sutton Park. Perhaps not as lauded as nearby Little Aston, and Copt Heath, this heathland gem also lays down a really enjoyable test of golf in a wonderfully natural setting. Read more... 
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
