Royal North Devon at Westward Ho! can rightly claim to be the cradle of English Golf. Founded in 1864, it is the oldest golf course in the country and is regarded as the St Andrews of the South. The golf course is as tough as any of the UKs more famous links layouts and has recently been placed in Golf World 's "Top 100 Courses in the World" that a golfer must play.
The course represents a true test of golf because, although from Northam or Westward Ho! the Burrows looks too flat for challenging golf, once on the course the sight of great sea rushes, a huge timber fronted bunker, burn and ditches present a formidable challenge.
The course stretches out towards the pebbleridge which keeps out the sea. A trip into the Rambling Wooden Clubhouse suggests that it is more than a flag on an Ordnance Survey map - rather a museum and an academy to the game of golf.
