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.

Thurlestone Golf Club: Course Closed - Due to the Coronavirus Epidemic The course will remain closed until further notice.
Golf courses must close
England Golf guidance
Following on from the Prime Minister’s statement tonight (23 March), golf clubs and golf courses in England must now close.
It is England Golf’s position that this deeply regrettable, but highly necessary and responsible course of action must be implemented with immediate effect and be maintained until further notice.
The government has identified an urgent need to introduce new restrictions on public life and on non-essential businesses opening their doors.
This has been done to limit the spread of the coronavirus and relieve the growing pressure on our National Health Service.
Keeping golf courses open is simply no longer compatible with the updated policy of government which is designed to save lives in a time of national emergency.
The health and wellbeing of the nation is the only consideration that matters at this moment in our history.
These are incredibly testing times for the country. The golf industry cannot be shielded from the economic and social ramifications caused by this temporary shutdown of normal life.
We would like to assure the golfing community that England Golf staff will continue to work remotely with all affiliated golfers, clubs and counties to try and minimise the damage caused by this suspension of regular golf club life.
We will continue to signpost clubs and counties to the latest government advice and schemes designed to help the economy cope with the disruption caused by coronavirus.

Sunday 19th January 2020
Thurlestone start off the season with Dartmoor League Shield win. Players from 15 clubs around South Devon met to play for the postponed Dartmoor League Shield at Thurestone Golf Club on Saturday. Play was delayed by 45 minutes due to a heavy frost but as the frost was burnt off the sun shone and the usual Thurlestone wind grew in strength making it a difficult day for golf. Scoring was tough and the individual winner was Thurlestone’s Malcolm Toone with a great score of 38 pts, 3 ahead of his closest rivals. The team event for the Dartmoor League Shield was also won by Thurlestone, for the first time. Malcolm Toone’s great score being added to by other team members Craig Blount and Tony Adams. Let’s hope this great start will lead to success for the team in the league this year.
