About
The peace and tranquillity of Stover Golf Club, located on the edge of Newton Abbot, is a convenient treat for golfers in the south west, with easy access from the A38 and M5. We welcome visitors and the public to our bar and restaurant, where we serve a range of delicious light bites, snacks and main meals, all washed down with a variety of local and favourite tipples in the well stocked bar, so even the non golfer can enjoy the views over the course whilst relaxing in the beautiful surroundings. The beautiful parkland golf course features a wide variety of holes, elevation change, mature trees, streams and picturesque ponds, with views of Dartmoor into the distance. A James Braid designed golf course set to the backdrop of natural woodland, a perfect place to relax and enjoy the scenery.

Not a typical James Braid course
Oct 2020
Good course with being defensive and straight off the tee. Fairway very comfy soft grass! Greens excellent with tough placements to guard the course. A few shouts of 4 course but no problem. Shop guy very friendly and welcoming even though stressed as card machine not working. We loved the 8th hole attractive from both tee and green. Got away with the drive, missed the water but just short on the approach so pleased with a 6. Another hidden course which is worth a visit. We will try and play again if time.

Lovely little track

Nice course with plenty to challenge all levels of players but not daunting to those who play off a high handicap. Well kept and pretty course, greens are very good. 9th is a cracking hole but can go wrong very quickly! Very friendly staff and members, I was made to feel welcome on the occasions I have been. Well worth a visit and very reasonable green fees.

Joined after a recommendation
Feb 2020 • Solo
IHaving moved to Devon nearly four years ago, I joined another local club, ok but never felt a part of it . Went to Stover on a recommendation and have never looked back , members are amongst the friendliest I live known . If you want to play competitively or socially your are encouraged to do either . The course is not the longest but by no means an easy track. Plot your way is the key. I would highly recommend a visit if your in the area and join if you live here!

Hidden gem with stunning scenery
May 2019 • Friends
The golf course is a challenging mix of carefully sculptured holes through the English Countryside. The standout holes for me are the 4th, 8th, 12th and 16th. Every one of those tee shots could easily fit into a top championship course. Peter Alliss wrote in his book that the 16th hole proudly features in his all time 18 holes of golf. Having been a member of a few golf clubs locally I can easily say thIs is the most friendly and open membership I have come across. High and low handicappers happily mix in and the club integrates very well across all membership sections. I would happily recommend it to anyone wishing to enjoy a stunning one off golf experience or even more so to those looking at full time membership of a club.

Unfriendly members and staff
Jul 2018 • Couples
A very decent course with staff that appear to be unhappy and members who obviously don't like visitors. I found that what was meant to be a special treat was spoilt by members and staff being generally grumpy. For instance, it was a steaming hot day and I was in all the correct golf gear but my shirt had come out and was tapped on the shoulder by a member to tuck it back in. Every hole we played they stared back at us to see it was still in place. They seemed to very much approve of a young lady with her shorts so far up her backside that she left little to the imagination. I could go on about other instances but this pomposity is what prevents many youngsters taking up golf.

Simon, I appreciate you taking the time to review your experience of Stover and I am very saddened to hear yours was so negative. Generally we have a reputation or being a very welcoming club so it is disappointing to hear this, i do believe in the last 18 months things have improved so would hope that you would try us again and we would of course welcome your feedback. Happy to discuss any questions or comments you may have, should you wish to contact me please do so via our website or by calling the club office Kind regards Jonathan

First class.

Easy to get to off the A38. Course does not have any steep hills to negotiate so just right if you are of ‘senior years’. Conditions of fairways are well looked after. Nice views from the club house. See you again sometime Stover.

yet another great day
Feb 2018 • Friends
Played here on a society day and were well cared for.Weather sunny but cold. Even after a lot of bad weather recently every hole was in play and no excuse for bad golf. Afterwards we were presented with one of the best carvery dinners you could wish for. Top marks to the catering staff

No nasty steep hills!

Just right for senior golfers who prefer a flatter course. A couple of ponds and streams to keep you on your toes though. Plenty of parking spaces.

Played on a society day. Course a good challenge and in excellent condition. Thoroughly enjoyable. Meal following the golf was very good ad rounded off an excellent day. Members were dry friendly. The pro shop was good. The trip adviser questions don't really apply to golf courses!!

Need to sort air con out
Apr 2017 • Family
Visited yesterday to celebrate my Mum's 70th. Unfortunately, we left quite a lot of food as, whilst the carvery was excellent, the temperature in the restaurant was far too hot to enjoy the food. My children likened it to the Eden Project. Also be aware that you need to prebook any birthday cakes.
