Thurlestone Golf Club

Welcome to

Thurlestone golf club

Situated in an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’, Thurlestone is a fantastic location to play golf and tennis.

Running along the stunning coastline of Bigbury Bay, this Harry Colt designed course is a mix of links and cliff-top terrain with the latter providing breath-taking views of the legendary Thurlestone Rock to the East and the beautiful Avon Estuary and Burgh Island to the West.

The course is one of the most exhilarating with majestic rocky seascapes above the coves where smugglers used to operate. It is also ideal holiday golf - not too severe, with quite generous fairways but the wind, of course, can blow with a vengeance.

Juniors win the first round of the Basil Steer knockout against Dainton Park

Sunday 14th April 2019

Great win on Sunday for Thurlestone in the Devon County Basil Steer knockout winning 3-0 against Dainton Park. It was a tightly fought match in a relentless cold strong wind but despite the conditions all players did well competing up to the 17th and 18th holes. Sammy Ingham, Juniors Captain had to give 2 shots and managed to win 2/1 securing our first point with Noah Mulligan and Toby White winning 1 up on the 18th in their matches. Lots of fighting back and the boys should be proud of themselves, well done.
