Torquay Golf Club is located around five kilometres from the centre of  Torquay, a seaside town, situated on the south east coast of  Devon, a beautiful county in the south west of  England. The town is well known as being at the heart of the 'English Riviera' with an impressive marina and harbour.

Opened for play in 1909, the golf course was officially opened two years later when the new club house was unveiled. To mark the occasion, the club managed to organise an exhibition match between two of the best golfers of the time, J.H.Taylor and Harry Vardon - they won 9 Open Championship titles between 1894 and 1913 between them, and Vardon was the man that introduced the overlapping grip used by so many in golf today!

Despite being located pretty much right on the coast, the course doesn't have a stereotypical links feel to it - the lush, well maintained fairways and greens give off more of a parkland feel. Like most links courses however, the wind plays a massive role and it's often said that playing in the wind is like playing on a completely different course than when playing in calmer conditions. There are some great views of  Dartmoor and over Lyme Bay, where the ocean stretches for miles and miles, from all over the course

The clubhouse is equipped with everything that you need from tees to waterproof jackets (may well be needed), and the staff are more than happy to help and offer inside knowledge on how to play particular holes.

The course is easily accessible by car just off the road heading north from Torquay city centre and both Torquay and  Newton Abbot train stations have links with stations all over the country. If you're thinking about staying near the course then have a look at the hotels near the course below.

    A wonderful course played in perfect conditions. The mid-section includes some of the most memorable and beautiful holes that I have played to date. It was just a shame that the last 5 holes were a bit boring compared to the rest of the course.(Round played: Jul 2016 - Score: 79 Handicap: 10.5)
