6,700 yard 18 hole par 72.
Not to be confused by the other Bowood in Wiltshire, Bowood Park is just off the A39 near Camelford in the north-east of the county.
A lot of the holes are quite open and there is plenty of opportunity to hit driver without too much fear of a lost ball. The rough is not too heavy and the course is really very playable, with some nice feature holes.
The course is really well-designed and always presented in good condition. The front nine is quite open and the back nine, as well as being more protected is very scenic. The downhill par three 11th and the par four 12thare particularly picturesque and will stand out in your memory afterwards.
You will undoubtedly look with envy at some of the beautiful houses dotted around the Bowood estate…..fortunately most of them are well out of range of an errant tee shot.
