Dwalish is a great ‘Sea Turf’ course where you have to be accurate from the tee or you are going to lose balls. The greens on this course are superb, putts just seemed to roll smoothly on forever, the rolling, undulating fairways were also great to stroll down, they looked untouched by man, with a nice spongy ‘Sea Turf’ feel, apart from the seventh which was completely flat and looked a little out of place.
The few members I bumped into were very friendly and so were the staff in the clubhouse, I highly recommend you play Dawlish if you visit this part of the coast.
Dartmouth is an absolute joy to play, tees, greens, fairways the whole course is up to championship standards, the clubhouse has great facilities with very friendly staff, a special thank you to Tamzin (hope it’s spelt right) who looked after us at dinner.
The 4th is our favourite hole and is described below. The par 3 5th is not too difficult if you stay right and the same goes for the par 4 6th. At this point we must mention the wildlife that we encountered during the opening holes, rabbits, robins, bitterns, pheasants, 8-inch crayfish!! and we didn’t see any, but there is a snake path on the course.
