Bovey Castle Golf Course is a demanding and magnificent 18-hole championship course crafted in 1926 by J F Abercromby, one of the best British golf course architects of the last century. When the course formed in 1930, it rapidly earned national recognition as one of the most popular places to play golf. Designed to compete with its sister courses in Gleneagles and Turnberry, this course has been defined as an experience of golf that can never be forgotten, offering the pure challenge of golf to both professional and amateur alike. The course passes through the hotel farm, surrounded by an idyllic landscape and obstacles to meet every handicap. Bovey Castle also provides a professionally fitted clubhouse, driving range, golf academy and bistro for pre-and post-match meals and snacks.
