          With three coasts plus a variety of interior settings, England offers numerous quality links courses and a broad selection of parkland courses that give visitors a great choice of course types, course scenery, and course challenge. Golf clubs in England may be private and exclusive, public and welcoming, and something in between. Most courses welcome guests, and, some offer club rental and motorized cart rental, making it easy for overseas visitors to play. Exclusivity is rarely an impediment to play. Only a few famed championship courses may require that guests provide a handicap card from the USGA certifying the candidate's proficiency at the game in order to obtain a tee time.  
       See the following charts for information about some excellent courses within reach of HOME AT FIRST locations in DEVONSHIRE, THE COTSWOLDS, SHROPSHIRE & CHESHIRE, LONDON, THE LAKE DISTRICT, & YORKSHIRE.

FREE ADVANCE BOOKING OF TEE-TIMES!
          HOME AT FIRST can pre-arrange golf tee times at many of the courses listed below for its England guests after they sign up for their trip to England. There is no additional booking charge for this service, and golfers can arrange to play a different course each day if they wish, paying only the regular guest fees at each golf course.
        Guests can easily arrange the own tee times independently in England, as weather and their mood dictate, but it's best to do so at least 24 hours in advance (especially for the top-rated courses).

Yelverton, Devon, PL20 6BN, England. From Plymouth take the A386 north 20 minutes to the course one mile south of Yelverton village. Turn left (west) onto Golf Links Road to reach the clubhouse.

Moorland course set on western edge of Dartmoor National Park about 600 feet above sea level. Designed by noted golf architect Herbert Fowler (Walton Heath, Los Angeles CC South Course, and Royal Lytham and St. Anne's), Yelverton, is short and exposed to the elements. Its characteristic undulations include ravines from the site's former service as a mine. Expect some sweeping views, little sand, and less water. Friendly, local and a good bargain.
