Situated in 225 acres of delightful south Devon countryside, Dartmouth Golf & Country Club boasts 27 holes of golf with the 18-hole Championship Course and nine-hole Dartmouth Course complementing each other nicely.
Previously ranked in the top 80 courses in the UK and Ireland by ‘Golf Monthly’ magazine, the Championship Course was designed to challenge the most proficient golfer, with strategic positioning of tees, meandering streams, 12 water features and undulating greens.
But while it makes the better players think, it is not so punitive as to spoil a round for high-handicappers and provides an excellent and enjoyable challenge to golfers of all abilities.
Although only a nine-hole layout, the Dartmouth is built to the same high standards as its sister course. Measuring 2,252 yards with a par of 33, it is guaranteed to test players while they enjoy a more relaxed round.
The resort’s location on the English Riviera makes it ideal for winter breaks, with a warmer climate than the rest of the UK meaning frost and temporary tees or greens are extremely rare.
Off the course, there is the Lakeside Health and Leisure Suite with an indoor pool, sauna, Jacuzzi, steam room and fully-equipped fitness area; a fantastic restaurant and vibrant bar offering panoramic views of the surrounding Devon countryside; and guest accommodation in the form of 35 hotel rooms or a selection of impressive lodges for larger parties.
And Dartmouth Golf & Country Club is the perfect base to explore everything south Devon has to offer. Visitors can easily explore the many local towns, beaches and villages, with the resort just four miles away from Dartmouth, within minutes of Blackpool Sands beach and only a short drive from Dartmoor.

3rd 168 yards, par 3
A challenging shot from a tee which is perched about 50 feet above a lake. Those successfully traversing it could still find themselves in the water if they land to the right of the green because a steep bank is among the perils waiting to ruin your score.
4th 486 yards, par 5
It might not be the longest par 5 but hitting the green in regulation is an achievement. The second-hardest hole on the course boasts tight fairways and a double dogleg – a potential card wrecker but fantastic to play.
18th 212 yards, par 3
A long tee shot is needed to the green below which is protected by four large bunkers. The elevated tee gives a stunning view and a fitting way to finish such a picturesque course.
