NGC Top 100 rated Golf Course & Today’s Golfer No.5 Best Golf Course in Devon
Yelverton is a delightful moorland course in South Devon, designed by Herbert Fowler, who incorporated some of the old mine workings, and leats, as natural hazards to challenge golfers of all standards.
Situated just ten miles north of Plymouth, on Roborough Down within the Dartmoor National Park, the course has extensive views across the moors and the Tamar Valley to Cornwall. Considered by many to be one of the South West's best courses, it is a delightful 18 holer with great character, that is testing yet fair to all standards of golfer. The club was founded in 1904 and the present course was designed by Herbert Fowler. With fairways lined by gorse and heather, and with fast and true greens the course is a delight. It drains well in the winter, when the leats that once provided Plymouth with its water supply, are again filled with water. Being situated on natural moorland, the course is blessed with a wide variety of fauna and flora, with rare orchids and eyebrights found along its fairways, and buzzards and Dartford warblers frequently seen overhead.
