Bude is a seaside links course situated in the centre of the town adjacent to beaches. The natural all weather fairways and greens are rarely unplayable. Challenges are provided by tight lies and uneven stances on the closely-cropped undulating fairways.
The first five holes are closer to the sea and offer some great views. The belief is that they probably offer the visitor the best chance to pick up a stroke or two. The towering dunes on the 6th and 7th holes are unforgettable.
Once you cross the road, it is a different story with several blind drives and occasionally even second shots. The last few holes are slightly repetitive as they run parallel, but each has its own hazards to navigate. The Bude greens have beautiful quick surfaces with both severe and subtle borrows, and as you would expect the seaside links wind presents a challenge if it’s blowing.
Like several members clubs in Cornwall, the clubhouse has a reputation for being very friendly.
