Teignmouth Golf Club

Teignmouth Golf Club

Course Information

Founded in 1924, this south Devon resort sits over 800 feet above the seaside town of Teignmouth and offers spectacular views of the ocean and surrounding moorland.

Given the picturesque setting, it is no surprise that the club is a popular venue for weddings and functions. An in-house wedding coordinator and spacious dining facilities make it the perfect location.

Despite these attractions, the jewel in the crown at Teignmouth is the 18-hole championship course. Designed by Dr. C.A. Mackenzie, the course architect responsible for the world famous Augusta National, the par-69 moorland links track measures just under 6,100 yards.

While not particularly long by modern standards, the layout is still a thorough test of golf. You must be extremely accurate from the tee, while 11 of the firm, fast greens are tiered and will seriously challenge your ability to read a putt.

The course conveniently boasts two starting points – the first and tenth tees. This allows the club to separate those playing two and four ball, drastically reducing queuing time.

The first hole, known as “Bishop’s Palace”, is a relatively short par-five that neatly sums up the challenges that lie ahead. Measuring just 472 yards, it requires excellent course management to navigate the heavily sloping fairway.

Many of the tougher holes are found on the back nine. Known as “Holcombe Top”, the par-four 15th hole has a stroke index of one and has the potential to wreck any card.

The hole is usually played into a right-to-left headwind, while things can get very tricky indeed if you fail to find the fairway with your tee shot.

Away from the course, the club boasts a well-stocked pro shop and offers lessons on any of their outdoor practice facilities.

Teignmouth Golf Club can be reached via the B3192 and is easily accessible from the A380.
