There relief nine at Burnham & Berrow; the Channel course - is a superb nine-holer.
In places it is virtually the same as the main course but in miniature.
The first five holes are played on flatter land close to marshland which separates the course from the sea before the final four make their way back through the dunes.
In truth none of this closing quartet would be out of place on the main championship course and although not as long they have rolling fairways and fine green complexes, none better than the one at the short eighth.
A quick loop of this course would be a fine way to introduce yourself to the delights of Burnham & Berrow.
The second course at Trevose very rarely crops in conversation but during a family holiday to the Cornish Resort I made sure to play it.
The third course at Trevose, aptly named the "Short Course" is just 1,360 yards.
