Exeter and Plymouth Gazette – Wednesday 10 April 1895

A Golf Club has been formed at Woolacombe the rising North Devon seaside resort. Links comprising a nine hole course, and extending over an area of some sixty acres have been laid out by, and constructed, under the superintendence of Gibson, of the Royal North Devon Golf Club at Westward Ho! And a very favourable opinion of the exceptional natural capabilities of the ground has been expressed by expert golfers. The links are most picturesquely situation upon the Burrows stretching along the central part of the bat, and overlooking the extensive and unrivalled Woolacombe Sands; and are less then a five minute walk from Woolacombe. The greater area of the links is pastoral land. The hazards are natural ones. The putting greens have mostly been formed and laid with good turf, and £115 has been spent in the construction and preparation of the ground
