If you fancy yourself as a bit of a ‘Tiger Woods’ then South Devon could be the perfect place to tee off your summer golf break. South Devon is well known for its sandy beaches and gentle countryside and is often associated with sports such as surfing, fishing and horse riding. But it’s also very popular amongst discerning golfers, who welcome the chance to test themselves on the region’s superb courses. With great accommodation and plenty of family attractions in the region, golf breaks are a wonderful way to improve your game and to enjoy some downtime with the family against an inspiring backdrop.
How much time on the greens and fairways you want to spend will play a big part in choosing what type of accommodation you go for. Families with children might prefer to stay in self-catering accommodation or in a hotel that’s near to a golf course. This will give you plenty of opportunities to indulge in your golfing passion, but will still leave time for you and the family to explore the region and its attractions together.
On Site Golf
For golfing families or solitary putters for whom golf breaks are an essential ingredient in any holiday, there is plenty of accommodation with golf courses on site. One such is the Dartmouth Golf and Country Club. Ideal for golf breaks, this resort offers you spacious accommodation that has received three Visit Britain stars for its standards of service and comfort. In addition to a number of sports facilities such as a gym, indoor pool and sauna, you can challenge yourself on not one but two golf courses. The 18-hole Championship Course will test the game of any golfer, while the Dartmouth Course offers the same high standards but packed into nine holes.
Golf for All the Family
Another great course for pro-golfers and first time club swingers alike is the Shaldon Approach Golf Course. Set against the Teign Estuary and with stunning views of Teignmouth, this course is suitable for golfers of all ages and abilities. There’s a full range of equipment available for hire, and ample opportunity for you to turn a truly challenging golf break into a family experience.
