Great Torrington Golf Club - Devon's Hidden Gem

Great Torrington Golf Club is set in glorious countryside in the heart of rural North Devon, just seven miles from the beach at Westward Ho! 

Owned and managed by its members, the club extends a genuinely warm welcome to members and visitors alike. 

Great Torrington Golf Club was founded in 1895, moving to its present site on Furzebeam Hill at Weare Trees in 1932. Our 9-hole heathland/parkland course is routed over a pleasantly sloping, triangularly shaped site that measures just 25 acres. The common land on which the course is set occupies the northern part of Torrington Commons, which in total extends to 365 acres. 

Measuring just 4,458 yards from the back tees (for 18 holes), the course is not of championship length, but with well-drained fairways, tightly mown heathland turf and challenging green complexes, the design offers a fair and interesting test for golfers of all abilities. 

The layout at Great Torrington is a throwback to the way in which golf was first played in Britain. It's a unique golfing experience that more and more visitors are coming to enjoy. 

Our homely clubhouse, with its cosy upstairs bar and restaurant, offers a good selection of beverages and meals, which can also be served in our covered spike bar area. 

We’re a small, inclusive club and honoured to have been awarded Junior Club of the Year 2022 by the Golf Foundation. Click the link to read the story on the Golf Foundation’s website.
