East Course, Saunton Golf Club
This 6444 yard, par-71 course has been laid out over the rugged Devon landscape for 120 years and would have been in consideration to host an Open Championship but for logistical issues. With a number of testing holes there are no tricks, just a demand for accurate and solid ball striking. Even the shorter holes will keep you on your toes with raised greens and defending bunkers.

"Ranked the number 1 course in Devon and with good reason. A great links course which is often described as one of the best links courses to never host The Open"
