Top Golf Courses in North Devon

North Devon is home to many golf courses and most are within an hour’s drive from Hartpiece. So if you are planning a golfing holiday to North Devon, why not make Hartpiece your choice for accommodation.

Saunton Golf club is home to two golf courses, East and West. Both of the courses have been listed in the Top 100 in the UK by Golf World and Golf monthly magazine. Visitors are normally accepted weekdays and weekends after 9:30am by prior arrangement.  Pre-booking is required. Unfortunately the courses at Saunton are not suitable for beginners. So if you haven’t played golf before this might not be the club for you.

Portmore is located along the North Devon Link road. This means that many of our visitors pass this course on the way to Hartpiece. Portmore is suitable for all and there is also a floodlit driving range. This is perfect for everybody, from total beginners to single figure players. You can hire clubs from reception and a bucket of 50 balls is only £3. This is probably one of the cheaper courses in North Devon to play but don’t let that put you off. It is still a challenging course.

Royal North Devon at Westward Ho! was founded in 1864. It is the oldest golf course in the country and is regarded as the St Andrews of the South.

Golfers share the environment with sheep, ponies and walkers. Visitors are welcome, and again pre-booking is advised. All details can be found the Royal North Devon website.

Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Ilfracombe Golf Club boasts one of the most spectacular locations in the South West for an exhilarating round of golf. Situated on top of the rugged cliffs of the North Devon coast, every tee has an awe-inspiring view over the sea to the Welsh Coast, Lundy Island and as far as the eye can see on the Atlantic horizon.

Other golf courses in North Devon who offer affordable games include Libbaton Golf Club, Chumleigh Golf Club, Great Torrington and Mortehoe and Woolacombe Golf Club.
