Devonport Golf Club offers a course to appeal to golfers of all abilities. Even some of the greatest professional players have found the layout to be a challenge when presented at its toughest for prestigious championship events. Devonport Golf Club was designed by Vern Morcom, who was also responsible for the Royal Hobart course. Devonport Golf Club's layout is a par 70 that measures 5,947 metres for the men’s course and a par 74 measures 5,306 metres for the ladies. All areas of the game are examined and, while the course is reasonably tight in places, in others it offers the opportunity to recover and still save par after errant shots. Generally, though, Devonport Golf Club favours the straight hitter and the golfer who thinks about their shots and their choice of club over those who simply like to see how far they can hit the ball. Everyone will have their own favourite hole, but among the most memorable is the delightful par-3 ninth right in front of the clubhouse.
