18 holes 5650 yards. S.S.S. 68.
The main feature of Cape Cornwall Golf Club is the clifftop scenery of Cape Cornwall which is truly spectacular. It has been described as links but in reality it’s a parkland course on the top of the cliffs.
The front nine are fairly flat back and forth, but the back nine is something else. Holes 10 to 14 have very steep slopes in all direction. The course is exposed so as ever the wind plays a part here.
Several fairways require a shot through quite narrow gaps in stone walls, which is a novel feature in itself.
The views are superb……. the 10th and 12th holes are fantastic – it feels at though you are hitting the ball straight into the sea.
Overall, this course is a little quirky but that is not unusual given the area and its cliff top setting.
If you’re playing in the evening, the sunset over the Cape seen from the 18th hole is an awesome experience.
Play Cape Cornwall as part of our West Cornwall Classics golf break.
