The 2016 season for the Atlantic Links courses in North Devon looks set to take off thanks to an increasing network of connections into south west England, available to golfers via Cornwall Newquay, Bristol and Exeter airports.

As the number of routes into these airports continues to grow, the trail of championship links courses (comprising of Burnham and Berrow in Somerset, Royal North Devon and Saunton in North Devon and St Enodoc and Trevose in Cornwall) is to become more accessible for golfers from other parts of the UK.

For example, from June Flybe is introducing a new service from Newquay to Leeds-Bradford with five flights a week during peak periods thereby increasing connectivity with the north of England. The airline also offers direct summer services to Newquay from Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Belfast, as well as indirect flights via Manchester to a number of other cities including Glasgow and Inverness.

From mid-March, Aer Lingus is also extending it Newquay-Dublin route with up to seven flights per week, opening up access from the rest of Ireland.

The further opening up of the region will make the Atlantic Links a more attractive option for golf, especially as the trail is perceived as a genuine alternative to the high profile links courses of Scotland, Ireland and Wales.
