General Description. 

Most golf courses have some unique features but lying on the western slopes of Dartmoor, within the national park boundary has the added attraction of being in an area of outstanding beauty. A possible distraction for the most dedicated and committed golfer!   With its wide fairways and sweeping vistas the course looks deceptively simply but its offers a challenging test for the unwary golfer.  Nature has provided its own hazards at Tavistock, with thick gorse and bracken, plus the odd clump of scrubby trees. There are also cunningly hidden bunkers that can trap the most proficient golfer. The thin soil not only provides tight lies, it also makes the greens lightning fast. Because of the thin soil the course and greens drain very quickly allowing year-long play -we seldom have need for temporary Greens or Tees at Tavistock due to the excellent drainage we have on the moor.
