Bovey Castle golf

Designed in 1926 by J F Abercromby, one of the finest British golf course designers of the last century, Bovey Castle’s 18 hole championship golf course is both challenging and beautiful. Opened in 1930, the course quickly gained national acclaim for its reputation as one of the most enjoyable places to play golf and nearly 90 years later, guests still love to play golf at Bovey. Designed to rival its sister courses at Gleneagles and Turnberry, the course has been described as an experience of golf never to be forgotten. The course meanders through the hotel estate, surrounded by idyllic landscape and offers challenges to meet any handicap.
