Taylor and Vardon were half of the dominant force in world golf at the time known as the Triumvirate, winning ten major championships between them. Taylor was born in Northam and started his career as a caddie at Royal North Devon.</p><p>1915 Half of the course reverts to agricultural use, in aid of the War effort. 1919 Agreement signed with The Maristowe Estate and the Roborough Commoners Association for a course on </p><p>Roborough Down. Herbert Fowler, designer of Walton Heath and many other courses, is commissioned to design the course essentially the course in play now. </p><p>1925 New clubhouse opened, the one currently in use. 1939-45 World War II; half of course closed for duration. 1949 Fowlers 8th, 9th and 10th holes are abandoned, and the present 16th, 17th and 18th holes are introduced. 1994 Major refurbishment of clubhouse undertaken. 2001 Foot and Mouth epidemic closes the course for 10 weeks. 2004 Club celebrates its Centenary with competitions in June, and Dinner and Dance on 4th December. 2006 Club hosts the English Golf Union Seniors Amateur Championships.</p></li><li><p> FREE SITE SURVEY &amp; QUOTATION</p><p> AUTOMATE YOUR EXISTING GATE / GARAGE DOOR</p><p> BESPOKE GATE DESIGN &amp; FABRICATION</p><p> PROFESSIONAL INSTALLATION</p><p> SOLAR OR ELECTRIC POWERED AUTOMATION</p><p> OPTIONAL MAINTENANCE CONTRACT</p><p> SECURITY GATES &amp; CCTV</p><p> RESIDENTIAL / COMMERCIAL / INDUSTRIAL</p><p> EXCELLENT AFTER SALES</p><p>Unit 11, Chantry Court | Marshall Road | Plympton | Plymouth | Devon | PL7 1YB</p><p>GARAGE DOOR &amp; AUTOMATION SECURITY SOLUTIONS SECURITY FENCING</p><p>CAMESAFECOMPANY7EST#OUNTRY'ATESAND"ARRIERS</p><p>#ONFIRMMY)$#!-%3!&amp;%COM</p><p>C</p><p>M</p><p>Y</p><p>CM</p><p>MY</p><p>CY</p><p>CMY</p><p>K</p><p>YELVERTON GOLF CLUB_210 Circles.pdf 1 30/03/2012 15:16</p></li><li><p>When the club was founded in 1904 it began as a nine-hole course to the west of the clubhouse. This was upgraded to 18 holes in 1912. The current layout came into play between the wars. Designed by Herbert Fowler, todays course retains 15 of the original holes, with the 16th, 17th and 18th as more recent additions.</p><p>The course stretches to 6,353 yards, par 71, from the white championship tees. From the yellow tees it measures 6,106 yards, with the 11th played as a par four instead of a par five, bringing the par down to 70. While the par is 73 for the ladies, the layout represents a challenging 5,605 yards.</p><p>Anyone who has ever played at Yelverton will tell you that it is a fair test. True, there are some tough holes, such as the uphill par-4 7th, but there are also some birdie opportunities too. The final five-hole loop rewards the accurate and punishes the wayward, ensuring an exciting finish to any matchplay round.</p><p>Got your eyes set on lowering the course record? Think again! Downes Crediton Golf Club pro Barry Austin shot a remarkable 60 at our Pro-Am in 2002 on a day of perfect conditions.</p><p>His remarkable scorecard, featuring eagles on the 11th and the par-4 14th, eight birdies and a lone dropped shot on the 12th, can be viewed on our website.</p><p> 9</p><p> The Course</p><p>GolfClubY e l v e r t o n</p></li><li><p>Award winning City Clinic is a modern, high tech, fully equipped facility and your care starts the moment you step into its reception.</p><p>Our clinic is a centre of excellence for musculoskeletal conditions.

Make the most of your trip by learning about some of the pitfalls that lie in wait and how to avoid them as you follow our course tour courtesy of Tim McSherry, our PGA Professional.</p><p>Hole 1, 207 yards, par 3Just like Royal Lytham, the round starts off with a challenging par three of over 200 yards. The first tee shot is never easy, but here you have to hit a small target with what can often be a wood! A four isnt a bad score to start, so a conservative approach might be the wise move, with out of bounds to the left and the right.</p><p>Hole 2, 423 yards, par 4After crossing the main Plymouth to Tavistock road youre faced with a long, straight par four. A ravine runs across the hole in front of the tee, so you must get your first shot airborne! The second shot has a small landing area in front of the green, beyond many humps with bunkers each side, so accuracy is essential.</p><p> 11</p><p> Take the Course Tour</p><p>GolfClubY e l v e r t o n</p></li><li><p>Hole 3, 282 yards, par 4A short par four with a blind tee shot. Its worth a quick glance down the fairway when you walk off the second green to see where youve got to go. A driver from the tee could reach the green, but two fairway bunkers lie in wait. Ideally hit a club that will leave you a short of these bunkers, to leave an 80-yard shot to the green. The green is very undulating so the shot in can make all the difference when it comes to the putting.</p><p>Hole 4, 320 yards, par 4We now play in the opposite direction to the 3rd hole. Another short par 4 and with the wind behind the big hitters can reach this green from the tee. The green is out of sight, but the tall marker post sits just behind it. Bunkers guard the entrance on each side and the green has two tiers, take note of the pin to see which tier to aim for.</p><p>Hole 5, 476 yards, par 5The fifth is the first par five and a nice driving hole, a perfect choice for the longest drive prize. You hit from a raised tee to a generous fairway. There is little trouble on this hole and it is a good birdie opportunity. The green is large but fairly flat.</p><p></p><p> Take the Course Tour</p></li><li><p>Hole 6, 142 yards, par 3The easiest hole on the course, according to the stroke index that is! A nice little par three with a large green. Although an easy hole, there are lots of humps and hollows for any ball that is short. Normally a short iron would be the club, but played into a strong wind, most come up short.</p><p>Hole 7, 436 yards, par 4Now for a difficult, long, uphill par four. The fairway bunker on the left attracts golf balls like a magnet, but a slice will put you in the gorse on the right, (or a hook if youre left handed). Many will struggle to reach in two shots, but all but the best players will be getting a shot on this hole, so use it.</p><p>Hole 8, 571 yards, par 5The eighth is the longest hole on the course and for many years was the longest in Devon. From the tee you can see the green in the far distance. The first shot is downhill and in favourable conditions you will have to lay up short of the Devonport Leat. The hole continues with a gentle slope to the green and there are no bunkers to avoid on this hole.</p><p> 13</p><p>GolfClubY e l v e r t o n</p></li><li><p>Chartered Accountants&amp; Business Advisers</p><p>Limited Companies</p><p>Sole Traders</p><p>Partnerships</p><p>Tax Planning</p><p>Tel: 01822</p><p>Whatever your needs, Synergy can cater for them.Our team offers a comprehensive service including, but not excluded to: </p><p>tax return preparation, accounts (both corporate and non corporate), business recovery, management accounts and analysis; </p><p>as well as various elements of succession planning and exit strategies. </p></li><li><p>Hole 9, 289 yards, par 4We walk over the old Plymouth and Dartmoor Tramway to get to the 9th tee. A short par four playing in the opposite direction to the 8th. There is trouble right and left, but if you hit the tee shot straight you should have a straightforward pitch over the leat to this long green.</p><p>Hole 10, 420 yards, par 4The Devonport Leat has to be carried twice on this hole. Best to aim at the left-hand side of the fairway as the ground falls away to the right with gorse bushes awaiting. The next shot will usually be a long iron over the leat to an undulating green. A bunker on the right and a swale on the left will catch any off-line shots.</p><p>Hole 11, 481 yards, par 5A par five off the white tee, or a par four from the yellow, it is uphill all the way. From the back tee you have a 180-yard carry over the ravine with plenty of trouble o...</p></li></ul>
