What the club says: Founded in 1864, the Royal North Devon is the oldest course in England and Wales. Although Old Tom Morris was involved with the design in the 19th century, the course you play today is more a reflection of the work Herbert Fowler did in 1908. A challenging links situated on the rugged North Devon coast, its exposed position, multitudes of spiky rushes, naturally formed grassy mounds and deep pot bunkers pose a number of questions to every level of golfer.



Most Helpful Review

Played on 2/8/2011. An excellent course, and the Oldest Links Course in England. Usually £50 a round, but £25 after 4pm at the moment. I would thoroughly recommend it. Greens were firm, quick and true, and the scenery is fantastic! Stephen. - Aug 4 2011

A true gem that every golfer should play

Staff were soooo friendly what a lovely place. We're so excited to play I drove 2 hours 40 and my playing partner 4 hours to get there. Well worth the trip. It was awesome. The greens were so firm and ran very true. Loved the course. Will play again. The wind was strong but no gale as is sometimes the case I was warned!

Gul Abu Dhabi rated 2 out of 5 - Jul 27 2017

Baron landscape
Had heard many good things about the course siama was very excited at getting the opportunity to play there. The club house it's great and gives you a sense of the history of the course. The putting green is good and the chipping practice area is equally impressive. The driving range was a long distance away and of very poor condition. Finally, the course; apart from holes 4-8 I found the course baron and non-descript. There also needs to be more signage for visitors. As it's just a vast landscape, the holes aren't very well defined. The greens though were excellent and challenging. Overall, i was disappointed, but maybe my expectations were too high.
