Scoring well at Teignmouth is all about coping with the wind that howls across the course and putting on the (usually) excellent greens. You can lose focus here because the views are simply breathtaking and worthy of the excellent and negotiable winter green fees. Yes, you read it right, negotiable. It’s a brilliant idea that more clubs should take note of. In summer when the conditions are top-drawer than you expect to pay the full £40 per round, but in the winter when conditions are not so good, you can get a round for as little as 20 quid. 18, called Last Quarry is a classic Mackenzie hole and a brutal 200 plus yard P3 to finish over a quarry to a dual tiered green that undulates for fun. Teignmouth is well worth a visit for any golfer but especially those interested in Golden Age architecture.
