Chagford Golf Course on Meldon Hill
Steve Grigg & Frank Collinson
Meldon Hill – in search of a golf course.
The Autumn 1989 edition of the Dartmoor Magazine had an article by Luke Darlington on the old Chagford Golf Course, which was open from Whit Monday 1908 until April 1930. At that time (around 1990), I (Steve) did find a few holes, but it wasn’t until this year (2020), I found a copy of the course on the internet and so a new exploration was called for !!
The 9 hole course was 2,728 yards (approx 2.5km), but took 7.5km of walking and searching to locate the majority of the tees and holes
