If you’re looking to play golf in Devon you probably already know how beautiful the county is and what great fun a good round of golf is. There are a lot of different golf clubs in Devon and so it is worth choosing the best one for you before you go.
Firstly, if you already know friends, family or business contacts who have played golf in a club in Devon, ask which club it was and whether or not they liked it. Also, if you know anyone in Devon, find out their opinion too - a club that comes with a personal recommendation is likely to be one that will suit you.
If you don’t have any recommendations to go on you can still find a good club to visit.
If you search the internet you will find a selection of clubs. They will all have different prices and that will be a factor. Another factor is obviously whether or not they have space on the dates that you want.
If there is a group of you, you could be entitled to discounts which will help keep costs down. It may also be the case that you have to be a club member first and this is something you must check with the club.
The quality of the green will be important and you should check this first. You may also want to hire some clubs and if this is the case, check this also.
Many golf clubs have pro’s who are available to give you lessons to improve your game. Find out who the pro is and whether they are able to coach you because you could get a lot of benefit from this.
The location of the club is also important of you are planning on getting out and seeing more of the county. Try and get a course that is near to other attractions you want to visit.
Sometimes, clubs have on-site accommodation and this is ideal if you are staying for a while and want to really concentrate on your game - plus it means that you can get into the social aspects too because you are always there.
If you are on a tight budget you may find it worth booking out of peak season because prices will be lower. Unfortunately with this strategy you do run the risk of getting bad weather. If you don’t mind wrapping up warm, that may not be so much of a problem, but if the weather turns really bad you won’t get a game at all - such is the Devon weather!
If you are wanting to play at golf clubs in Devon you are sure to have a great time because the county is beautiful and the game is good fun. Happy holidays.
