Royal North Devon Golf Club

Founded in 1864, the oldest golf course in England

Royal North Devon Golf Club

The Royal North Devon is England's oldest links course, founded in 1864. Old Tom Morris' original layout was altered slightly by Herbert Fowler in 1908, but little has changed since then. The flat, windswept fairways have unspoilt views out to sea and the local livestock are free to roam the course. In a stiff breeze the fast-running links tests the very best of golfers. Regarded by many as the 'St Andrews of the South', Royal North Devon is a challenging course, fit to rival any of the UK's more famous links courses.
