The splendid Woodbury Park (Oaks) Golf Club is set in stunning tree and lake studded parkland, with rolling fairways and USGA spec greens. Motor racing legend Nigel Mansell owns Woodbury Park (Oaks) Golf Club and has turned it into one of the south west's leading golfing venues just 15 years after opening. The Oaks golf course is the main attraction and looks as though it's been around forever. The golf course is nearly always in top shape, especially the USGA-spec greens which are lightning quick. Woodbury Park also offers quality on-site accommodation and leisure facilities.
Woodbury Park is the old Nigel Mansell track near Exeter, and racing helmets still adorn many areas. "The golf clubhouse is a separate building to the hotel and gym complex, and you may see many guests of the hotel using the clubhouse as its a popular place to stay. "The golf is covered by a 27-hole complex with a sheltered driving range. "Design wise there are lots of water holes, including the obligatory finishing hole across the lake right in front of the clubhouse for all your mates to cheer you on. "A tricky first with a 90-degree dogleg is well protected by out of bounds either side, and similar to others, requires good tee-shot placements before unleashing the drive. "There are huge greens here with plenty of pin placements. The course doesn't play very long at 6,500 yards from the whites but there are some huge increases if your lucky enough to play the blacks!
