During 2001 Home Park was transformed, with three sides of the ground being completely re-built. Both the ends and one side of the ground has been replaced , by single tiered, covered all seated stands. Most impressively the corners between these stands have been filled so that the ground is totally enclosed on those sides. This just leaves just the Grandstand at one side of the pitch, as the only remnant of the old Home Park. This classic looking stand dates back to the late 1940's, is partly covered, with seating at the rear and a large terrace at the front. Home Park is the most westerly and southerly League Ground in England.
Situated just ten miles north of Plymouth, on Roborough Down within the Dartmoor National Park; the course has extensive views across the moors and across the Tamar Valley to Cornwall. Considered by many to be one of the South West's best courses, it is a delightful 18 hole course with great character, that is testing yet fair to all standards of golfer. The course is built on the site of the old Yeoland Consuls mine workings, and is renowned for a variety of interesting ravines caused by the past mining activities; these natural features have been used to enhance the degree of difficulty of several of the holes. The club has good practice facilities, with a putting and chipping green in front of the club-house, an indoor practice net, and a 'state of the art' indoor Teaching Academy at the rear of the building.
