Course overview

The Kigbeare is the feature course at Ashbury, a par-72 6528yrd parkland course that offers a delightful blend of challenging par 3s with some over 200 yards, and a number of testing par 4s and 5s that feature rolling fairways, large undulating greens and well positioned hazards. Mature trees line many of the fairways, putting a premium on accuracy from the tee while the undulating fairways mean that you can gain further distance from the tee with well positioned shots.

A hole of note is the signature 3rd, a 205yrd Par 3 that is visually stunning and is considered by many to be the best hole on the course. The holes drops 50ft from tee to green and the ball must carry 180yrds to clear a brook, you then approach a green surrounded by large trees, with banks rising up to the green. The Kigbeare is a fantastic parkland course that makes great use of the natural features of the land, creating a true test of golf even for the more proficient golfers.

Course overview

Complimenting The Kigbeare & the The Pines course is the much shorter Beeches course, running a much more casual 5671 yards , the course is considered the most picturesque of the courses at Ashbury Golf Resort. The front 9 stretches out away from the clubhouse through beautiful countryside, while the back 9 brings you back towards the clubhouse with the final 4 holes meandering through a stunning valley surrounded by mature woodland on all sides. Holes worth mentioning on the course include the 3rd, a truly memorable par-3 that features a triple-tiered fairways that drops 180ft from tee to green and the 12th, a 177yds Par 3 with stunning views across to Dartmoor. From the tee, crafted man-made mounds run along both sides of the hole, with the green framed in the middle. There is a stunning backdrop of Dartmoor with many of it’s Tors visible throughout the hole. The Beeches is perfect for those who want a more laid back round of golf in peaceful surroundings.

Course overview

The Pines at The Ashbury Golf Resort is the second longest of the courses on offer at the venue, constructed at the turn of the century, the course has since matured into a very attractive and challenging test for golfers of all abilities. Many visitors leave talking highly of the front 9, with its wide fairways and gentle slopes, it offers golfers the opportunity to score well, even when they are not playing at their best. Whilst the back 9 is a little more punishing,  with its tall mature tree lined fairways that provide an intimidating prospect that requires accuracy from the tee in order to maintain a good score. One to hole we must mention is the 4th, a 270yrd Par 4 that features a narrow uphill drive, lined on one side by trees and the other by multiple water hazards. The short distance tempts those longer hitters to go for the green, however the hazards on either side are dangerous for those who are inaccurate off the tee. Once you safely negotiate the fairway you are faced with a narrow three-tiered green that will test any golfers putting game.
