East and West. Both excellent but challenging courses, the latter being one of the best I have played. Great condition. Great facilities and friendly membership and staff. A must if visiting the area - in fact, worth visiting the area just to play here.

Staunton East stands up to some of the better links courses in Ireland and Scotland -- and sovereign played most of them. With rolling fairways, many at an angle to your tee shot and fairways that narrow as you go out requiring fairway woods or...More

Great courses with great bar , restaurant , pro shop and changing facilities . There are no better 2 course venues in the UK in my experience. If you go you must play both courses or you will have missed something special .

I am looking to visit next year with some friends on a golf trip to North Devon but will only be playing one of the courses at Saunton. It seems that the East course is the better of the 2 courses, which course would the members choose?
