Playing golf on the English Riviera is proving more popular than ever after organisers of the South Devon Golf Tour revealed that bookings have risen by ten per cent in 2013.
The tour, which was launched in 2010, has experienced a significant increase in interest on the corresponding period last year with golfers flocking to enjoy nine of the region’s top golf venues in some breathtaking locations.
Visitors have a wide selection of courses to choose from, with Dartmouth Golf & Country’s Club highly-regarded Championship Course, BoveyCastle, Thurlestone, Bigbury, Churston, Dawlish Warren, China Fleet, DaintonPark and Wrangaton all available.
Packages for the South Devon Golf Tour are on offer from just £209 per person between now and September, which includes two nights’ bed and breakfast and one two-course dinner in addition to three rounds of golf – based on two people sharing a twin or double room.
Dartmouth Golf & Country Club’s three-star hotel provides the base for the breaks and packages include a round on the resort’s Championship Course as well as unlimited golf on the nine-hole Dartmouth layout in addition to guests’ choice of the other courses on offer.
Huw Darch, marketing manager at Dartmouth Golf & Country Club, said: “It’s great to see the tour continuing to flourish and attract growing numbers of golfers.
“South Devon has so much to offer and, with the likes of Thurlestone and Wrangaton joining last year, there is no better way to enjoy some of the region’s finest courses at great-value prices.”
Dartmouth Golf & Country Club is located just four miles from the historic town from which it takes its name and is the ideal base from which to explore the delights of south Devon.
The English Riviera’s unique mild climate makes it an ideal destination for a golf break and with Dartmoor, the River Dart, fantastic beaches and a host of picturesque towns and villages nearby, there is plenty to do away from the fairways.
