the golf course is on the edge of Dartmoor and there are some interesting and challenging holes, especially on the front 9. There are a number of holes along the banks of the Teign where the terrain is flatter. The clubhouse is well appointed and the staff were friendly and helpful. Plenty of car parking. The hotel burned down some time ago but I believe there are plans to rebuild it.
Fantastic friendly and challenging course, one of the best around the Southwest. The setting on the river dart is quite stunning with the river flowing along the side of the course. You must also try the food here, its great and the staff are fab. Highly recommended.
I played this course with a buddy on 7th September 2019 and it is in fantastic condition. The front 9 is quite hilly but we both like undulating courses. The views from all of the holes are stunning. The signature hole is the 8th par 5...downhill dogleg...which someone once holed in one. You have to think about each hole rather than smacking the ball as hard as you can. The members are extremely friendly and offered plenty of advice on the various holes. The green fee on a Saturday is only £20 per person...unbelievable for such a pretty course! We will definitely return.
What a great club , you always get a very warm welcome. A lovely club house with super fresh and well prepared food. The course is in great condition and offers a challenge to golfers of all abilities.
I have been here more times than i could count, its one of those love or hate courses, bits i love and bits i hate (i only hate the holes i play badly and yesterday that was a fair few ha ha). first things first when you turn off the A38 and it tells you there are 3 miles to go it feels like the longest 3 miles ever, serious windy road but fantastic scenery, the place is very easy to fine, has a huge sign and a there is a banner saying about WIFI, that's fantastic because the phone signal there is terrible. When you arrive there is usually plenty of parking, not to say its not busy but the club has a proper size car park. The club has spent a lot of money and time it would seem renovating everywhere, as you walk through the main door in front of you is a well stocked and not ridiculously priced pro-shop, to the left is a staircase which takes you to the second level were the lounge/dining room and Bar is, it had been maybe 5 to 6 months since my last visit here, tend to come with a group of 30 golfers mid year and pre Christmas and was not prepared for the changes, they have swapped main rooms around and its a total improvement (not to say there was anything wrong before) the lounge area just looks better, more comfy, more inviting. Now for the main guy there, Mark Hurst, he is everywhere, serving behind the bar, checking on all the visitors that are around making sure they are ok and enquiring about their round, a proper hands on type of boss. that's something that's great to see. Ok the course, Teign Valley is a course of two halves, well two thirds would be a more accurate way to describe it, 1 to 10 are a mixture of hills, slopes and mountains with amazing views of the surrounding country side, hole 2 of whites needs a Chair Lift, the hill is a killer but it has nothing on the walk from the 6th green to the 7th tee, they have a bench half way up as a rest stop, the right side is shorter but steeper, the 8th hole is a monster Par 5 which in 1995 someone got a hole in one on, its a dog leg left with danger all the way to where it turns left, its reachable in two as long as you don't over hit, 200-ish yards is how far you want to go, will still leave you over 300 to the green but its all down hill, if is dry hit your next about half way and hope it runs down, just hope you don't run over the back as you will have to hit back up to a elevated green. Holes 11 to 15 and all flat and there is a river running along side and a ball magnet pond in the middle which is a feature of 3 of the holes, to get there though you have to go through a tunnel that is under the road (when the river floods that tunnel can fill with water),to play 16 to 18 you come back through the tunnel and you are faced with in my opinion 2 of the hardest holes there, don't be a hero and try to go for it, play 16 safe, lay up and play across the gap, 17 take one or two more clubs that you think and pray your on the left side of the green, that would give you a uphill put, you do not want to putt down it. 18 is a lovely finishing hole and watchable from the terrace. Teign Valley is worth a visit to all abilities of golfer and is very reasonably priced, membership there is also very good value for money. Call them a book a golf day, a round or what ever you fancy. Teign Valley was good before but after the improvements its great.…
