Golf breaks in Devon

The Saunton Sands Hotel is unbeatable when it comes to golf breaks in North Devon. We are right next door to Saunton Golf Club, which is rated well in the World’s Best 100 Courses and includes:

  • Championship course
  • 2 x 18 hole links courses
  • Newly refurbished clubhouse
  • Pro shop
  • Tee up (on course drinks delivery service)
  • Open competitions
  • PGA professional coaches

Sir Nick Faldo says: ‘I am a huge fan of Saunton. Framed by magnificent sand hills, it is a classic links course and a wonderfully absorbing challenge.’

The club has two 18 hole courses, both with spectacular scenery which can be enjoyed throughout the year due to the superb condition of the courses.

Golfers will also love a trip to the Royal North Devon course at Westward Ho! which is the oldest golf course in England with a superb collection of original memorabilia. Ilfracombe Golf Club is also recommended as you can see the sea from every tee.

After a great day on the course, it's time to return to the hotel for luxury and pampering as we also offer amazing facilities for anyone planning a golf break in Devon.

Organiser goes FREE for groups of 20+

Enjoy as a group, club or golfing society!

Bring a group of friends for a break that includes a day on the links followed by fantastic food and a well-stocked bar; it'll soon become an annual pilgrimage, we promise.

Beyond Golf

Just because the golf has to stop doesn't mean the day has to end too. Whether playing with friends or family, you'll find an abundance of things to do at The Saunton Sands Hotel to keep the good times going.

Perhaps your loved one or friend is off playing golf? There's no need to be sat in the clubhouse waiting when the whole of the Saunton awaits. 



After a day on the golf course, tuck into our superb range of top shelf liquors, beautiful wines and local brews in the Terrace Lounge. Grab a bite to eat by the beach at the Beachside Grill, boasting epic burgers, grilled-to-perfection steaks and exciting veggie and vegan dishes. Dress to impress with sensational seasonal cuisine in our stunning art deco 2 AA Rosette award-winning Dining Room. Maybe tuck in to a decadent afternoon tea whilst others are on the course?



Whether you’re the golfer or not, our luxury spa, Source Spa and Wellness with mesmerising ocean vistas awaits. Golfers can ease weary bodies in our Thermal Suite and soothe aching muscles with a massage. Not golfing? Sit back and enjoy some seaside serenity; saunter between the sauna, steam room and vitality pool, indulge in an array of holistic, results-driven and beauty treatments and unwind on our rooftop relaxation area and absorb the views.
