The main test at Torquay Golf Club is the prevailing wind that blows over the cliff tops on which the course is set. This variation can mean that when playing the course day to day you will be met with a different challenge each time. There is an array of hazards that the wind seems to steer the ball towards including the occasional body of water and some very well-placed bunkers. There are also some tight fairways with tall trees looking down on the lush playing surface. All hazards are put in place to make hitting the receptive high-quality greens a tough task as once on them the true putting-surface means there is a good chance of putts dropping. *Please note you are required to present a Handicap certificate on arrival to play Torquay Golf Club. Please bear this in mind when booking.
Just north of Torquay town centre.
This was the first time I have played this course and with all its the reputation of such a splendid course I was very excited about playing. Playing off temp tees I had no issue with as we are playing early spring and the fairways are lush and forgiving but the greens are atrocious with so much sand on you may as well play on the beach. Score cards could do with a map on to help first timers like myself and the party I was playing with as direction diagrams on the tees were not in situ. The course has some beautiful views and make the game very pleasant . The major issue is the snobbery and attitude of some of the members who think it to be only for them and visitors are something they've just trod in and it's this that makes me feel I would not go back and play this course again shame as I thought with the way things are golf clubs would enjoy new members and customers
