Exmoor’s original course opened in 1897. Famed golf course architect Donald Ross redesigned the course in 1915, giving it the high-styled bunkers and imaginative green complexes for which he’s known. Course architect Ron Prichard restored the course in 2003. From the longest tees, it offers 6,849 yards of golf for a par of 72.
