The Royal North Devon Golf Club lies alongside the beautiful beach at Northam Burrows, which stretches from Northam to Westward Ho! It is a few minutes’ drive, or 30 minutes walk, from Appledore. It can rightly claim to be the cradle of English Golf. Founded in 1864, it is the oldest golf course in the country and is regarded as the St Andrews of the South. The golf course is as tough as any of the UK’s more famous links layouts and has recently been placed in Golf World ‘s “Top 100 Courses in the World” that a golfer must play.
The golf club has a restaurant which regularly hosts live music events. These are mainly dine and dance events.
The club is located at Golf Links Road, Westward Ho!, Bideford, Devon EX39 1HD. Call them on 01237 473817 to enquire about upcoming events, course fees or anything else.
