Situated in the heart of South Devon, Dainton Park is the perfect venue to play golf, eat lunch, celebrate a special occasion, work out, meet friends and enjoy a healthy lifestyle.

The most welcoming golf club in Devon!

We opened our doors in the early 90s to anyone wishing to enjoy a social, healthy lifestyle in the heart of Devon. Working hard to break down the barriers within the traditional golfing world to encourage greater participation, we also like to welcome the local community and Devon holiday makers alike for golf, driving range practice, fresh food and drinks. We also offer a unique  venue for parties, weddings and business meetings.

Over the years the golf course has matured into an enjoyable test of golf for all abilities. Our professional coaches continue to introduce novice golfers to the game, while our league teams regularly enjoy competitive success. And because we believe golf can be enjoyed by the whole family we maintain a relaxed, friendly environment on the golf course and in the clubhouse.

Our Oak Room Restaurant enables us to reach out to non-golfers in Devon as well. Each day our chefs prepare a selection of freshly cooked snacks and meals, including a spectacular roast carvery lunch every Sunday. Check our What's On section for the latest.

Our modern bar and business meeting rooms have transformed Dainton Park into the ultimate 3rd space – a complete destination for sport, work and socialising surrounded by stunning greens and beautiful Devon countryside.

  • "This to me sets the trend for how golf clubs should be - open to all. The food is always fresh here and tastes fantastic. We come here once every 5 to 6 weeks for a business meetup. We don’t play golf but just meet and eat here. The staff are fantastic, and nothing is too much trouble. It really is a great place to be for a great dining experience."
