Manor House and Ashbury Overview | NCG Top 100s: GB&I Golf Resorts

A Golfing Century

Normally when we say the word ‘century’, it is because a course or resort has been around for 100 years. That is not the case with the Manor House and Ashbury. Instead, we say ‘century’ because there are more than 100 holes at the resort! 
 
There are five 18-hole layouts – the Kigbeare, Pines, Beeches, Oakwood and the par-3 Willows – along with a 9-hole Academy Course. There are also several spare holes not used by any course, taking the total to 102 holes at the Manor House and Ashbury. 
 
Kigbeare Course 
The Kigbeare Course is the longest and most spaced out of the 18-hole courses at the Manor House and Ashbury. It plays at 6,528 yards from the back tees, so it is not the longest course in the world, but there is plenty of danger throughout the round. Three of the four par 3s are more than 200 yards, but there are also plenty of scoring holes, including the par 5 14th which is only 450 yards long. The closing hole rises more than 65 feet from tee to green and plays much more than its carded 300 yards.  
 
Pines Course 
The Pines Course is the other Par 72 offering at the Manor House and Ashbury and is only slightly shorter than the Kigbeare. It starts with a kick, with the opening hole being the hardest on the card. From there, though, the front nine offers up scoring opportunities, while the back nine is more tree-lined. The signature hole on the course is the 18th which is a long par 5. Longer hitters could go for it in two, but the possibility of getting it wrong and having a big score on the card might put some off.  
 
Beeches Course 
The Beeches Course runs through the middle and north of the resort, with the Kigbeare wrapping around the top half. It is somewhat of an out-and-back layout and is only a Par 68. There are two par 5s, and six par 3s, with one of those being the signature hole. The par 3 12th offers splendid views from an elevated tee box, playing down to a green surrounded by trees.  
 
Oakwood Course 
Like the Beeches Course, the Oakwood is also a Par 68, but only plays at 5,500 yards. There are three par 4s measuring 270 yards or less, including the first hole. The 1st is only 225 yards from the tips, and is essentially a long par 3, but you get the extra shot to start your round with a low number. There is more water on the Oakwood Course, another type of hazard to look out for during your round.  
 
Academy and Willows Courses 
The Willows Course is also an 18-hole layout but is a par-3 course. Holes range from 70 to 150 yards long and there is a range of hazards on the course for you to watch out for. The course measures less than 2,000 yards but getting in under par is still a challenge. There is also a 9-hole Academy Course used for coaching and to allow beginners to grasp the game's nuances.  

Two Glorious Hotels

The resort is home to two stunning hotels, with more than 400 rooms available in total. The Ashbury Sports Hotel is surrounded by the 100 holes of golf you will find at the resort, while the Manor House Hotel is just a five-minute drive down the road, on the junction of the A386 and A3079. 
 
Every room at both properties comes with its own ensuite bathroom. Each room also comes with TV, Wi-Fi and plenty of amenities to make a stay in Devon comfortable. Dining comes in the form of unlimited hot and cold buffets, with all stays at the Manor House and Ashbury being all-inclusive stays. 
 
Away from the hotel, there is also a choice of lodges on site. These are privately owned, with guests able to rent from the owners. There are dog-friendly lodges among these, which are all close to the first tee of the Kigbeare Course.
