Part of the famed Atlantic Links group of leading South West England links courses, Burnham and Berrow was founded in 1890 and is blessed with 27-holes of golf that stretch along the Bristol Channel coastline.

Offering a truly exhilarating golfing experience and inspiring views, the club’s Championship course is consistently ranked by the leading golf media, amongst the Top 35 golf courses in GB&I. This outstanding layout has also been the venue for many prestigious golf events, including the British Ladies’ Amateur Championships, Brabazon Trophy, British Boys and English Championships.

Commenting on behalf of Burnham and Berrow, Managing Secretary, Karen Drake said, “We have been through an extensive process to find an agency that has all the tools to help us effectively showcase the improvements we are making to our magnificent club and market ourselves to a wider audience.

From the outset, the team at Front 9 really stood out with their proven track record, unrivalled industry network and digital & creative expertise. I have no doubt they will be a tremendous asset as we continue to enhance all areas of the club.”

Front 9 has firmly established itself as one of the leading communications and content production agencies in the golf sector, representing leading brands such as Srixon, Cleveland Golf, XXIO, Peter Millar, G/FORE, Trump Aberdeen and ST Sports.
