97 BOVEY CASTLE
Architect: Abercromby 2006 position: 95 Stats: 6,303 yds; par 70; SSS 70 GF: £39-£70 T: 01647 445009 W: boveycastle.com (opens in new tab)
Donald Steel and Tom Mackenzie have overhauled the old Abercromby design to create a must-play course with the opening nine holes set below the magnificent castle.
The rivers Bovey and Bowden feature on many holes, most notably the superb 7th where they encroach on both sides.
The back nine is quite different with holes on higher ground. They offer a less severe challenge and a chance to take in the fantastic backdrop of Dartmoor.
Bovey Castle is never that busy and, but for the sound of the odd 4X4 chugging up a country lane, the silence is golden. MH
+ Pure tranquillity; good variety of holes; green fees now more realistic - No real clubhouse; 9th is a weak hole; can get wet underfoot in winter
