Dawlish Warren Golf Club

Dawlish Warren Golf Club

Dawlish Warren Golf Club - Please note: There is a £5 supplement to play this course.
The only links course In South Devon, 'The Warren' is situated in an internationally renowned wildlife conservation area and bordered by water on three sides. The 18 hole, par 69 course provides an easy walking level course with fantastic sea and Exe Estuary views and provides a rare challenge for both the experienced golfer and newcomers to the beautiful game. The traditional links course stretches some 5968 yards and was designed by James Braid.

The fairways are natural, unspoilt duneland turf on the seaward side, with lusher grasses on the estuary side. Banks of heather, small copses, drifts of gorse, ponds, banks and ditches add to the challenge of the course. Our greens are acknowledged as being as fine as any in the South West: fast, fair and true.

Our greens are renowned to be some of the best in the South West. To that end, and to preserve their quality, the Warren Golf Club is a 'SOFT SPIKE' preferred course.

Dawlish Warren Golf Club is now over 100 years old and nestled in a National Nature Reserve with varied plant life and many rare species of wildlife. Members of the golfing community of all skill levels are welcome. You can always guarantee a relaxing game regardless of the errant shot and you will always be assured of a warm welcome. 


Founded by the Earls of Devon in 1892 and situated on a sand spit that separates the Exe estuary from the sea, our largely level, eighteen hole, duneland course offers views of sea, estuary and rolling hills. Equidistant between the historic cathedral city of Exeter (12 miles), Torquay, and the market town of Newton Abbot, the course can be easily reached by car. A benign micro climate and our sandy soil usually enable us to enjoy golf for 365 days a year.  We almost never close!

Other Information
The Warren is more than just a golf course and it is home to rare orchids, plants and grasses, including the unique Warren Crocus. Huge flocks of migratory birds and wildfowl grace the sandy dunes throughout the seasons. Stoats, foxes, birds of prey and rabbits also exist in this delicate equilibrium.
