Devon links golf course surrounded by sand dunes and spiky grasses

Devon - Thurlestone Golf Club

A round of golf in an area of outstanding natural beauty

Once compared favourably to the famous Pebble Beach by Peter Alliss himself, Thurlestone is one of those edge-of-cliff courses that Devon seems to specialise in - and offers some seriously impressive coastal views as the backdrop to your round.

Running along the stunning coastline of Bigbury Bay, this Harry Colt designed course is a mix of links and cliff-top terrain with breath-taking views of the legendary Thurlestone Rock to the east and the beautiful Avon Estuary and Burgh Island to the west. It's ideal holiday golf: the fairways are quite generous and the blustery winds and uphill drives provide just enough of a challenge.

The first twelve holes go out right along the headland and verge on true links, while at the same time giving the turf a thick, springy quality that encourages a good strike on the ball. The course fades very slightly with three long par fives in a stretch of four holes before finishing with three very strong and truly memorable holes.

As well as golf, the club has three beaches and 12 tennis courts so non-golfers will also have plenty to occupy themselves.
