We are a thriving and traditional members club situated just three miles from Torquay’s centre with its stunning marina and harbour, and a short distance from picturesque St Marychurch and Babbacombe.
Founded in 1909, the course has steadily evolved to present a first class parkland layout that offers a challenging yet rewarding test of golf in beautiful natural surroundings. Extensive views from the course encompass Lyme Bay in the east across the water to as far afield as Portland Bill, and to the rugged tors of Dartmoor to the west. Our tree lined fairways and high quality greens present an interesting challenge on each hole.
We offer a warm welcome to visitors and societies looking to test your skills; Torquay golf course provides a true test of golf for players of all abilities. Visitor green fees are available throughout the week and weekend.
To match the course, our comfortable and friendly clubhouse offers excellent catering and bar facilities where you can have a relaxing meal and a drink on the terrace overlooking the 1st and 18th fairways. We hope you enjoy your visit!
A Brief History
A delightful parkland course with stunning views over Lyme Bay to the east and Dartmoor to the west. Torquay Golf Club has a rich history and it was here that Nick Faldo won his first winners cheque as a young professional.
The Torquay New Golf Course Company Limited was incorporated in 1909 and a large tract of land was let to the Company. The lands were certain farm pastures at Petitor, in use at Easter for a steeplechase meeting, and, being within the Urban District of St Marychurch and scenically attractive, were regarded as ideally suitable for golf. The professional of the Links at Westward Ho! was instructed to layout the new course.
On 20th May 1911, the new clubhouse was opened, and had the appearance of a cricket pavilion. The opening was celebrated with an exhibition match over 18 holes in which were engaged two of the reigning peers of Golf, Harry Vardon and J.H. Taylor, at a fee of ten guineas each, with amateurs C.V.L. Hooman and A.G.M. Croome.
To engage the services of Vardon and Taylor at that period was a superb effort. Harry Vardon had already won 'The Open Championship' on four occasions and he went on to win again 2 months after opening Torquay Golf Club, in July 1911. He still holds the record of 6 Open Championship titles in: 1896, 1898, 1899, 1903, 1911 and 1914.
The 'other' professional of the opening day match, J.H. Taylor, was no stranger to golf himself, winning 'The Open' on 5 occasions, being: 1894, 1895, 1900, 1909 and 1913.see the course Online Tee Booking
