History of Portmore

We are a homegrown family business working hard everyday to build something special. Portmore is owned and directed by the Webber family - Colin and Amanda Webber alongside their son Josh. Our goal is to provide excellent value for money and a friendly, supportive, environment to play golf with your friends.

Our journey started many years ago, when Portmore was running as one of the most intensively managed dairy farms in the UK and was in the top 2% of dairy producers in the country. However, in the early 1990s it became clear it was time for a new direction. The majority of farm buildings had been destroyed by the tail end of a hurricane in 1987, there had been a dramatic change in milk quotas increased that cost of milk production and the farm land had been spilt in half by the compulsory purchase of the North Devon Link Road (A361). After generations of farming Colin and Amanda took a leap of faith and made the decision to convert Portmore from farm to golf course. 

Portmore first opened its doors in 1993 with twelve a bay driving range. Over the following year, the range grew to include twenty-one bays in total. The Landkey course was opened first in 1998 and the Barum course was completed in 2004 . The clubhouse underwent a dramatic renovation in 2015, allowing us to cater for a wide range of functions and events. 

We are incredibly proud of what we have built and we personally work incredibly hard year round to ensure our courses and facilities are enjoyed by all.
