Approximately 20 minute drive

The course was originally a 9 hole layout which has now been extended to 18 holes. The original 9 holes (laid out about 100 years ago) are on the moor which means that the Greens are fenced off and animal droppings are “casual water”!
The new 9 holes are on converted pasture land, laid out by Donald Steel about 6 years ago.

Tee times can be booked.

Thurlestone

Telephone No:

01548 560405

Distance:

Approximately 45 minute drive

Number of Holes:  

18

 

Situated in an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ and running along the stunning coastline of Bigbury Bay, Thurleston is a fantastic location to play golf.  

The course is a mix of links and cliff-top terrain with the latter providing breath-taking views.   It is ideal for holiday golf - not too severe, with quite generous fairways but the wind, of course, can blow with a vengeance.

Club Membership is needed. Temporary Membership is also available to all.
