According to Frank Pennink's Choice of Golf Courses, [the] “original course of nine holes opened in 1890 on the inland side of the railway line. Later re-designed by H.S. Colt on the seaward side, except for 1st and 18th holes. Ted Ray came as professional here, on first leaving his native Jersey.”
Welsh snooker legend, Ray Reardon, is firmly connected to Churston Golf Club and the course climbs steadily over the cliff tops where there are dramatic views across Tor Bay.
