BROADWAY has an impressive design pedigree, with elements of the course being designed by two of the most famous golf course architects in history.

Alistair McKenzie (of Augusta National fame) and James Braid (designer of over 200 courses including Gleneagles and Carnoustie) both contributed to the course.

There are three excellent par 3s with characters of their own, but the 5th stands out as the signature hole.

Designed by Dr Alistair McKenzie in the 1920’s, this hole requires pin-point accuracy on to a contoured green some 100ft below the tee.

It normally requires a 7 iron but even a driver is useful when the elements are against you.

The course is rated in the top twenty in the South West and kept in excellent condition all year round by the Head Green Keeper, Jamie Blake, and his team of highly experienced greens staff.

Originally trained as a medical doctor, Alistair McKenzie’s First World War work designing camouflage was directly influenced by his work designing golf courses.

Three courses he designed remained in the top 50 in the world as of 2016.These are Augusta, Cypress Point and Royal Melbourne.

James Braid was key in the development of both Gleneagles and Carnoustie, and became famous as the “inventor” of the dogleg.
