With eight courses of varying character to choose from you can't fail to find the right ones to suit your preferences. From the coastal courses with stunning views to the more sheltered parkland courses in the beautiful Devon countryside, there is plenty to please. And if you've got some non-golfers with you, there are a wealth of beautiful locations to visit.
Starting from the West, Staddon Heights is a superb 18-hole cliff top course situated on the outskirts of the historical naval city of Plymouth, the club has wonderful views along the Devon and Cornwall coastline, Plymouth Sound, the City of Plymouth and inland over the Dartmoor and Bodmin hills.
Moving down the coast we come to Bigbury, people who visit this famously friendly, cliff-top golf course will never forget the experience. There's a smile in the welcome for guests. The challenging yet forgiving coastal golf course offers 18-holes, 6000-yards and is a very fair par-70.
In sight of Bigbury is Thurlestone, the course is one of the most exhilarating with majestic rocky seascapes above the coves where smugglers used to operate. It is also ideal for holiday golf - not too severe, with quite generous fairways but the wind, of course, can blow with a vengeance.
We now move to the East side of South Devon to find Churston, I doubt you will find a golf course in the south west in a more idyllic location or in better condition. It sits proudly overlooking Torbay. Established in the late 1800’s Churston endeavours to uphold the best traditions of golf and golf clubs and yet still trying to meet the needs of the discerning visitor.
A short drive around Torbay brings us to Torquay, founded in 1909, the course has steadily evolved to present a first class parkland layout that offers a challenging yet rewarding test of golf in beautiful natural surroundings. The tree lined fairways and high quality greens present an interesting challenge on each hole.
Heading North a few miles brings us to Teignmouth, the course is situated near to the South Devon coast and, at 800 feet above sea level, it commands spectacular views of the sea and nearby moors. The 18 hole moorland links presents a great test of golf for players of all abilities. Features include six varied and challenging par 3s and no fewer than 11 two-tier greens.
Moving inland a little we find the peace and tranquility of Stover, located on the edge of Newton Abbot. The course is one of the best parkland courses in the south west. The beautiful parkland golf course features a wide variety of holes, elevation change, mature trees, streams and picturesque ponds.
Turning back South we conclude our tour at Dainton Park. Established in 1993 Dainton has grown into one of the friendliest, most enjoyable clubs in South Devon. Set in 125 acres of classic parkland, elevated tees offer magnificent views over Dartmoor National Park and the South Hams, while tight, well defined fairways follow the natural contours of the land, and inviting greens nestle among the trees and water features.
