What the club says: There's a smile in the welcome for new members and guests alike - and a stiff challenge in the 18-hole, 6035-yard, par-70 golf course. That is assuming you can tear your eyes away from the views in all directions: Dartmoor to the north, Burgh Island to the west, and on the eastern flank, Bantham Beach and the winding River Avon. Sea breezes can make it challenging to play
Most Helpful Review
I have played Bigbury Golf Club a great many times as a holiday visitor – in fact, several times every year for as long as I can remember.
I have seen this cliff top course, overlooking the sea – which was always a delight to play – gradually improve and mature over time. It is now a course which is not only interesting, very scenic and decently challenging, but it is also one which has been thoughtfully improved - with often quite small, but usually wise and intelligent, changes to the layout and design. It has also been maintained to a high standard whenever I have visited.
The greens are usually in fine condition and, especially in the summer months, pretty quick. Whilst the surfaces are smooth and true, the greens are, for the most part, also undulating and require careful lining up of your putts. The fairways seem to get just a little narrower each year, and the semi rough a little more noticeable, but that might just be my personal impression as the passing years seem relentlessly to make the game generally that bit harder.
The views are a real panoramic delight – whether inland towards the hills and moors of Dartmoor, or along the beautiful Avon river estuary as it winds upstream from Bantham to Aveton Gifford; or out to sea, taking in the rolling surf and, for example, the magnificent sight of Burgh Island and the tiny fishing port of Hope Cove. Wherever you look, in fact, if you can raise your eyes from the course itself, delightful vistas abound.
The clubhouse always offers the visitor a genuinely warm welcome, a good bar and simple but appealing, and well prepared, food.
The welcome is also evident in the pro shop, which is well stocked with a wide variety of clubs, clothing and accessories.
The green fees are fair and reasonable and offer excellent value, especially when the charm and quality of the course are taken into account.
Although it is a course that is well protected by sea breezes, good bunkering and numerous bushy trees, it is also a fair test of golf – so that it can be played and enjoyed by high and low handicappers alike. I would suggest that it has something for everyone – and, if you have happen to suffer one of those poorer golfing days which afflict us all, then you still have the pleasure of enjoying a beautiful walk in delightful surroundings.
If you are in, or anywhere near, the “South Hams” of Devon, why not give it a try? If necessary, take a little detour and try it out. I suspect that, like me, you will enjoy it.

Golf Course Reviews for Bigbury Golf Club
Very enjoyable round.
Greens were very true.
Fairways quite wide and first cut was reasonably short.
(Round played: Apr 2018 - Score: 91 Handicap: 20.1)
Lovely course to play in Devon. Feels short until you get to the 8th -11th then par 5's up hill (and into wind are tough). 12 onwards have great views of the coast and a good test of the short game. Very friendly club, people happy to chat and ask how things went and offer help on the way round. It was ladies captains day when we played and everyone looked very smart and even let us join in at the half way refreshments which was great. Really good value
(Round played: Jun 2017 - Score: 93 Handicap: 11.9)
Great course with amazing views
... challenging in the wind!
