Real friendly and good club well established club
On a very wet October week this course was still in top shape for the time of year. There are some really good golf holes making use of the natural terrain and it is a course were on some holes position off the tee is more important than length. There are also some spectacular views over the moors. When we arrived as a 2 ball we were following a members 4 ball and did well to keep up, we where round in 3.5 hours. In all an excellently presented and established park land golf course.
After the round we went into the club house and whilst the food was not in the excellent category it was adequate and the staff friendly and the club secretary happy to have a chat with us.
Launceston golf course
Nicely laid out course drainage very poor avoid if wet lovely summer course but greens and fairways waterlogged only managed 10 holes
Lush and well kept.
Lovely lush parkland course showing no signs of summer scorching even though its August! Only downside to this is the greens were a little slow. Relatively flat with just a few rises and drops to contend with and no cross fairway slopes!
A couple of tight drives and few doglegs required caution off the tee but for me the toughest tee shot was the par 3 9th. Although only 160yards the trees on the left require a laser straight drive or a draw to find the green and my natural fade was brutally punished with a lost ball.
But its a course I would recommend so long as you avoid the seniors competition days or you may be in for a long round.
From arrival to departure, smooth and relaxed.
All staff and members were very friendly and helpfull.
The course played long, as it was wet and had been raining the night before.
Both of us enjoyed the whole experience and are planning a return soon
Really nice parkland course
Well established, in very good condition, course was quiet - pretty much had it to ourselves. Challenging course, plays quite long, but entirely fair
Good day out
Very good well presented course enjoyed the banter with local players very enjoyable
Very interesting and varied course in excellent condition. Play was pretty quick even though we followed the members medal competition. Had the occasional pleasant chat with the group in front but never pressed from the group behind. One of the members bought us a drink back at the 19th. Lovely day, thank you Launceston GC, we will be back again.
Excellent course and friendly staff, will definitely play there again next time we are in the area.
a great course
Superb condition for the time of year, a great layout. Would recommend this course. My favourite parkland course in Cornwall.
Good course , poor weather
This course is fairly flat with a few views looking down onto Launceston. An enjoyable afternoons golf slightly hampered by the weather (cold, wet & windy). On first acquaintance the greens appeared bare but they had recently been treated and they were better than they looked. The greens had slopes and undulations which tested our 'putting prowess'. We liked the layout of the course and look forward our next round there.
Great day out. Staff very friendly. Course in great condition. Not a very big hitter so the course played very long and challenging in the wind. Definitely worth playing.
After reading good reviews on this course i was looking forward to playing it and drove 60 miles round trip to play it.I admit i didnt play my best but long straight holes with narrow fairways,long rough and poor greens is not what i call fun.Also rough was soggy even though we hadnt had much rain in the week so would hate to think what its like in winter.Luckily only payed £13 but not one hole stood out
