Plymouth Dartmoor Golf Tour

Overview

A new tour for 2023!

You will base yourself at the refurbished Elfordleigh Hotel & Golf Club and play your golf both on-site and at nearby Yelverton and Tavistock Golf Clubs.

The tour provides great value which includes both dinner and breakfast at Elfordleigh, alongside the 3 rounds of golf. If the course order works out correctly, you will find yourself playing the two off-site courses on your travel days which means the cars can stay put for the middle day of the trip. Logistically this works perfectly for groups heading from the north of Plymouth.

As the golf resort is based near Plymouth, those wanting an evening out at the Barbican or into the city centre can jump in a taxi for a short ride into the Ocean City!

Course overview

Yelverton is a delightful moorland course that enjoys outstanding views across Dartmoor and over Cornwall, designed by renowned course architect Herbert Fowler, it has hosted many quality competitions including the Mens Senior Amateur Championship. The course features moorland-cum-heathland surroundings with gorse patches lining many of the generous fairways. The wide fairways mean that you can be brave from the tee without worrying too much about hitting major trouble, while the green approaches are quite tight they aren’t the most daunting and once on the green you will challenged by the many natural contours featured throughout the greens.

The course runs a modest 6,300 yards and features a few shorter par-5s that are reachable in 2, as well as a 580 yard par-5 that was once the longest in Devon and a variety of different par 4 and 3 challenges. Yelverton offers an enjoyable round of golf in tranquil Devon surroundings and is a highly recommended visit for anyone in the area.

Course overview

One of the oldest golf clubs in Devon, Tavistock is a moorland course that provides a links-like test in the heart of the Dartmoor National Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Running out at 6,500 yards, par 71 from the competition tees, Tavistock harks back to golf in the late 19th Century with a course that feels open, but housing natural danger. Should you deviate from your intended line there is quite often thick gorse and bracken on hand to challenge your scorecard. That said, in the typical style of a course of this age and design, you can find yourself in the safety of another fairway occasionally as the holes do run close to one another in parts of the course. This makes the course friendly for higher handicappers, whilst providing a unique experience to the more experienced golfer.

Being situated on the moor has the benefit of being quick draining and year-round play. Very rarely are temporary green or tees utilised and the course is kept in excellent condition, even with the odd four-legged visitor to the course!

We have options to stay in Tavistock during your golf break, or you could consider heading a little further south and staying near Plymouth. Elfordleigh offers a great accomodation option and a brilliant tour can be had staying here and playing Elfordleigh, Tavistock and nearby Yelverton.

Full deposits are non-refundable so please only commit and pay for those in the party who are definitely able to attend the trip.

     

    * Some venue restrictions apply. Terms vary depending on the venue and cancellation term booked. Phone GSW consultant can advise you of this.

  • Can we make changes to our break?

    Managing a group can be a thankless task and changes to the group leading up to your break are an accepted element. We make changes as stress free as possible (just see our reviews for evidence of this!). Changes can be made up to 6 weeks prior to your break. Some changes are unavoidable so for legitimate reasons we will endeavour to make last minute changes after this period, but as we would have paid our venues at this point, this would be at the discretion of the venue(s) you are visiting. Please note a £25 admin fee will be applied for changes inside 6 weeks.

  • Why book with a tour operator?

    Good question, could you not do this all yourself? The answer is yes you could. You are able to locate the ideal hotel with the accessibility you need to the clubs you plan to play. You could go back and forth with your target venues and line up the tee times.  You could also contact each venue individually to advise them of group number changes and requests during the build up to your trip.

    Alternatively you could;

    – Talk to us about the trip you are planning.

    – Receive quotes for perfectly crafted package meeting your ideal requirements.

    – Secure the booking with small deposits staged in a way to make your life easier as an organiser.

    – Have your funds fully insured and independently held by PTS, our client trust provider.

    – Have changes made to whole tours with just one call or email.

    – Receive exclusive extras such as free places.

    – Pay less with our packages than going direct to venues.

    Why can we do this?

    Quite simply we have spent years (since 2015) forging strong relationships with hotel, golf club and golf resort venues across the South West. We are the expert tour operator for the region and are know for our high quality and personal service to our clients (just see our Google and TrustPilot reviews).

  • Who uses Golf South West?

    The majority of our clients are UK based domestic travellers. We deal with groups of any size, from single travellers and couples, to large golf societies.

    We also are the favoured golf DMC for the South West of England and preferred regional partner of Golf Tourism England. We regularly work with tour operators from Europe, America and elsewhere to provide bespoke tour packages allowing overseas travellers to experience the beautiful West Country.

  • How are package prices displayed on our website?

    Prices on our our website are displayed in two ways. The first is on our Resort pages where pricing tables show the from prices for low, mid and high season golf stay and play package rates at golf resort venues.

    The second is on our example tour package pages. There are often 4 prices shown here, two for low season and two for high season. The struck through price typically shows the highest price the tour can be and is often active over weekends in that season. The offer price is typically a mid week price.

    Every tour quote we offer is bespoke and will vary based on a number of factors including the date, availability, group size, room type, time of day for the tee time, etc… Our package pricing is a guide to the cost of the package and is not a firm price. Please enquire for an exact cost.

    We aim to provide as accurate a price as possible and therefore try to avoid using shoulder/mid season pricing or twilight green fee rates when displaying rates. You may find an intermediate price for breaks in months of April & October at certain venues.

  • Why are golf resort prices the same as elsewhere?

    Put simply, all tour operators work from the same contracted rate card when it comes to stay and play golf resort packages. When it comes to golf tours, that is a different matter, but golf resorts are a level playing field.

    If you find a vastly different price, it’s likely you’ve been misquoted and usually this does come back to bite.

    The question this poses is why book a stay and play golf break with Golf South West if you can book direct or with one of the large operators and receive the same price?

    Benjamin Franklin once said “The bitterness of poor quality remains long after
    the sweetness of low price is forgotten.”

    We have a small team so booking through us means you receive a personal service. You are more than just a number to us, we are a tour operator where you will likely get to deal with the same contact throughout the process, who will get to know you and your group and respond efficiently to your queries.

    We know our venues and the people who work there. This ensures a smooth process from initial enquiry to the end of your stay.

    Financially you have an extra layer of protection as your money is securely stored in an independent trust account and is fully insured when it is released to the venue(s) you are visiting.

    We are fortunate to have some exclusive “extras” with selected venues across the South West. We offer 1 in 16 free on most trips AND run an exclusive credit system to reward repeat bookers.

    We often feel we add further value to our clients when it comes to our bespoke golf tour packages, but you can rest assured that when making a stay and play golf resort booking, Golf South West will offer you an extremely high level of service, financial protection and may even offer you a saving or an exclusive extra!
