One of Southern England’s most popular golfing tours has added a new course to its itinerary.
The South Devon Golf Tour has announced that Thurlestone Golf Club, a cliff-top parkland course, has joined its lineup enhancing the tour’s reputation and giving visitors more choice of where to play.
The tour offers golfers the opportunity to play at eight of the region’s leading golf courses from as little as £159 per person for a three-round, two-night stay.
Thurlestone Golf Club is around two miles from Kingsbridge and is highly regarded for its breathtaking views of the Devon and Cornwall coastline.
Russell Thomas, general manager of Thurlestone Golf Club, said: “We’re delighted to be on board with South Devon Golf Tours. We have already seen a significant uplift in our green fee sales for 2012 and the tour is one of the primary factors behind this.”
The clubs in the South Devon Golf Tour came together two years ago in 2010 to market themselves to golfers as a package. Golfers booking on the tour can play:
- Dartmouth Golf & Country Club
- Bovey Castle
- Dawlish Warren
- China Fleet
- Dainton Park
Golf rounds are made up of one round on Dartmouth’s Championship course and two rounds on a choice of China Fleet, Bigbury, Dawlish Warren, Dainton Park, Churston and Thurlestone, while golfers can also enjoy unlimited golf on the nine-hole Dartmouth Course during their stay.
For a £30 supplement guests can play one of their rounds at the renowned BoveyCastle, while guests also receive complimentary use of Dartmouth’s leisure facilities, which include an indoor pool, Jacuzzi and sauna.
The South Devon Golf Tour package is based at Dartmouth Golf & Country Club, four miles from the historic town of Dartmouth.
It’s a good base from which to explore the delights of south Devon, with Dartmoor, the River Dart, long sandy beaches and a host of picturesque towns and villages nearby.
Devon is home to some of the finest links golf courses in England, especially the East and West courses at Saunton Golf Club and Westward Ho, the links at Royal North Devon.
Saunton’s East Course is often called “the best British Links never to have held the Open Championship” and it was recently awarded the English Amateur Championship – the top prize for amateur golfers in England – for 2014.
