Tough but beautiful
Played this links yesterday in pretty strong winds. Lots of blind tee shots which do get punished if you’re not on your A game! Breathtaking scenery throughout. Not one hole didn’t offer a talking point about its layout. Would like to play several times to understand where to land the ball to get the best from the course. Highly recommend just for the views.
A Brute Of A Couurse With Lovely Scenic Views
After the first hole the next few holes were amongst the toughest I've ever played. Fairways seemed non existent and I came close to giving up a few times. Had to improvise a bit, including often sticking to my 5 iron to find the fairway and stay there. By the 7th I settled down and managed to keep going with the same ball until almost home, having lost 4 or 5 on the earlier holes. Some lovely scenery to enjoy and actually found I was enjoying it during the second 9. Will have to come back now I know my way around
Nice course , Shane couldn’t see more than 100 yards
Played course yesterday, nice welcome in pro shop and running to time, pro advised us to purchase course guide and it’s a good job we did. Sea mist rolled in and visibility was literally down to 100 yards for pretty much all afternoon. Greens were ok , not especially quick , but fairly true , sane with tee’s were ok, my main problem with this course was its lack of distance markers!! Must be first golf course in 40 years of playing where there’s been No 100 yard markers to green!! Only yellow square at 150. Surely a course with sea fret/mist mentioned on the card should be providing accurate distances, either with posts or sprinkler heads, obviously can’t use range finder in mist!!! Managed to get round with same ball and play 1 over handicap (10)
Would like to return in better weather and see the views but Please get some distance markers in, ones on course guide no where near enough
It's tough.. See below
Firstly I can't comment on the food or drinks as I was short on time.
As for the course I has numerous observations.
1) It's tough. If you don't like blind shots or hills then its best avoided. I lost count of the number of blind shots required from both Tee and fairway!
2) If you cant drive/hit straight then bring lots of balls or send a friend ahead to spot for all the blind shots.
3) If its windy double up on point 2. Stray shots are often difficult to find in the Heather/Brambles and long grass.
4) The greens were good. Undulating and tricky pace but receptive.
5) It has great views of the town, cliffs, sea and beach.
6) There is only one water hazard! But a few reveted bunkers to collect your ball.
Would I recommend it? Yes, but only if you are playing with a group or are of a fair standard... Not for a novice.
Lovely challenging links
Great links with great views on most holes . Very challenging , especially in the wind. Loads of blind tee shots, so take plenty of balls.
Challenging links course that at first was daunting but excellent challenge that tests your game. Very fun to play and had to use a creative short game. Thoroughly recommended.
Authentic Links Experience
On a beautiful sunny day with no wind I took on this course having played it once before in the pouring rain
This time the views etc were fantastic but my golf not so good! That’s how it is some times!
Blind tees shots, hilly lies and fast greens; just like links golf should be.
I like this course and great value for money
A very warm welcome in the club house and if you’re lucky ( as I was the time before) some members asked me to join them
This helps to navigate you round without stressing where you go next
In summary a must play if you’re in the area
Great test of golf on pure links layout. Blind shots, buffeting wind and fast greens. Certainly not for the novice or player.
Warm welcome from Pro Shop ahead of play and welcoming clubhouse after.
Apart from the 1st hole the first 9 holes were the most intimidating we had ever played. Mostly blind shots , long carries to get to the short stuff. Lost balls with no idea where to look. Not easy to find your way round as few signs. 2nd nine was a far better test and was generally sensible. Wouldn’t recommend it unless you play with a member.
Best Links experience in Cornwall
I decided to play here after carefully reading all the reviews and thinking it would beat me up as a 20 handicapper, I shouldn’t have worried, I only lost one ball on my last hole the 7th and they was a pulled iron shot.
Yes you might need to be confident to hit blind tee shots and second shots but other than than relax and enjoy!
I played on a miserable day when the mist was in and got very wet but still played well, scored well and throughly enjoyed the experience
I must make special mention of 3 members you invited me to join them from 8 to 18, that certainly helped on my first visit.
Greens were excellent even with the rain
Off course the reception was friendly and the food and drink good value a good quality
Congratulations to all, can’t wait to return when on holiday next time
Played in a four ball this course is very differcult would not recommend it for high handicap golfers you will lose a lot of balls unless you can carry 200 yds off most tees But saying that the views are amazing overlooking the sea so always something to look forward too
Very tough golf course
The course is in very poor condition due to the prelonged hot weather. This made finding a white golf ball on burnt out fairways very difficult. If you are going to play for the first time you need a cousre planner/guide.
Hi, this was the 3rd time playing the course whilst I have been on my holidays in Cornwall. It’s a good course and it gets easier the more you play it as there’s a few blind shots etc. Played under h/cap this time with no balls lost! Course always in good condition and is quite hilly but this makes the views superb. I would recommend this course to play!
A lovely course in great condition played in good weather. Really enjoyed it and can't wait play again. ...next year!!
