The Golf Course

Torquay Golf Club is a thriving and traditional members club situated just three miles from TIS and Torquay’s centre with its stunning marina and harbour, and a short distance from picturesque St Marychurch and Babbacombe.

Founded in 1909, the course has steadily evolved to present a first class parkland layout that offers a challenging yet rewarding test of golf in beautiful natural surroundings. Extensive views from the course encompass Lyme Bay in the east across the water to as far afield as Portland Bill, and to the rugged tors of
Dartmoor to the west. The tree lined fairways and high quality greens present an interesting challenge on each hole.

*The rounds of golf can be arranged with a local partner as requested.
