The Top Ten Cornish Golf Courses

by Peter Godsiff

Cornwall, England’s favourite holiday county, offers some glorious golf as a counter-attraction to the beaches, surfing, rugged cliffs, quaint fishing villages, ancient monuments, hamlets, angling, theme parks and gardens. Classic championship links, lush parkland and cliff-top courses, multi-sports complexes with courses on site, par three challenges and driving ranges – Cornwall has them all. And visitors flock to the Duchy to enjoy the unique ambiance, welcoming pubs, hotels and restaurants, clotted cream and Cornish pasties where hotspots and off-course activities are available to suit all the family. The moderate climate makes golfing in Cornwall a pleasant all-the-year round activity, enjoyed by so many.

The first nine holes of the spectacular 6,500 yard course stretch along the cliff top, then the course turns inland through beautiful countryside scenery with many natural hazards.

Beautiful fairways, superb, big, slick greens, deep bunkers and often wind to add to the difficulty. A major challenge with a succession of fine holes over the 6,286-yards, par 72, with driveable par fours through narrow dunes, sand hills and different elevations.
