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.

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.
