Set in 125 acres of parkland, Dainton Park was designed by acclaimed golf course architect Adrian Stiff, and commissioned in 1993.
As with Adrian’s other notable courses in the West of England The Kendleshire and The Players Club multiple water features, sculpted bunkers and generous fairways give the course an American feel. Yet it was his knowledge of the local countryside that defines the course, making the most of the undulating landscape and the magnificent views over Dartmoor National Park and the South Hams.
At 6,400yds off the competition tees, Dainton Park can cope with all manor or tournament golf. So much so, in 2016 it was selected by the Devon County Golf Union to host the Devon Amateur Championship, which saw the very best local golfers competing for the county’s most prestigious title.
But off the yellow tees the golf course is much more manageable for the regular golfer. At 5,772yds it is still a test, but there are far fewer carries over water and rough ground compared to the elevated back tees.
And we have recently introduced a short course using blue tees marked on the fairways. No hole is more than 150yds, which is far less intimidating for the novice golfer.
Whatever your ability, Dainton Park has a golf course to suit your game.
