Dainton Park Golf Day – 28th July 2021

You are invited to join us at for The Soldiers’ Charity golf day at Dainton Park golf club, situated in the heart of South Devon.

At 6,400yds off the competition tees, Dainton Park can cope with all manner of tournament golf. So much so, in 2016 it was selected by the Devon County Golf Union to host the Devon Amateur Championship, which saw the very best local golfers competing for the county’s most prestigious title.

But off the yellow tees the golf course is much more manageable for the regular golfer. At 5,772yds it is still a test, but there are far fewer carries over water and rough ground compared to the elevated back tees. Whatever your ability, Dainton Park has a golf course to suit your game.

The club’s doors first opened in the early 90’s to anyone wishing to enjoy a social, healthy lifestyle and from the beginning it’s worked hard to break down the barriers within the golfing world and encourage greater participation and social mobility.

Over the years, the course has matured into an enjoyable test of golf for all abilities. Their professional coaches continue to introduce novice golfers to the game, while their league teams regularly enjoy success at county level.

The aim is to have an enjoyable day on this beautiful golf course, while raising money for our charity in support of soldiers, veterans and their families.
