The golf course at Bovey Castle is a challenging and beautiful 18-hole course, designed in 1926 by JF Abercromby, one of the finest British golf course designers of the last century. When the course opened in 1930, it quickly gained national acclaim for its reputation as one of the most enjoyable places to play golf.
Designed to rival its sister courses at Gleneagles and Turnberry, this course has been described as an experience of golf never to be forgotten, presenting the pure challenge of golf to professional and amateur alike. The course meanders through the hotel’s river valley estate, surrounded by idyllic landscape and challenges to meet any handicap. Bovey Castle also offers a fully-equipped club house, driving range and golf academy.
The Eden Hotel Collection – the AA Small Hotel Group of the Year 2014-15 – has just completed a major refurbishment of Bovey Castle as part of a renovation programme to restore the property to its former glory. The estate includes a 64-bedroom hotel, golf course, spa, country lodges and an outdoor pursuits centre.
