Hidden gem with great character

Superb course that gave and took in equal measure.

Not massively long but required accuracy and good strategy to score. The front 9 was tough with rivers and hazards constantly in play. The back 9 was easier imo and a good example of risk/reward golf. At least 4 of the holes offered good chances for birdie.

Course was in great condition considering the awful weather in the build up to the round.

Not the easiest club in the world to get to but it’s well worth a visit. I found it on a level with a number of NCG Top 100 courses.

Beautiful Bovey.

Fantastic course in A1 condition, not the cheapest or easiest course to get to, but well worth it. Right from the 1st hole which is the classic risk & reward hole( dare you try and drive the green?) to the 18th that doglegs right to left with trouble down both sides, in between there,s a fine mixture of par 3,4, and 5s that will test your game fairly. The front 9 takes you around the river valley , with water coming into play on most holes, from there you climb out of valley to the back 9, which is a bit more open, where if the wind is up can create a whole new challenge, Bovey Castle is a very pretty course, the fairways, greens and tee boxes were all in fantastic condition. Will be back to play this course again .
