West Cornwall is the oldest Golf Club in the County of Cornwall. The course – well the words ‘fascinating’ and ‘compact’ would summarise it neatly. There are a few blind shots so playing it a second time is always desirable.
Undulating fairways, dunes, elevated tees and large greens also are typical of this excellent links course with lovely views out to the Atlantic. A railway line running along the beach right next to the 6th tee is a fascinating and unique feature.
An intimidating tee shot on the second between two mountainous sand dunes follows a tricky par three first hole, and gives a taste of what to expect later.
Holes 5-7 are part of a pretty stretch down by the River Hayle, and the views across Carbis Bay from the tees on holes 10, 11 and 12 are breathtaking. In fact, looking down from the elevated 12th tee over the course and across the bay the view is stunning & probably the best you’ll see on any course in the land.
A classic links course that is rated as one of the top layouts in the county is an integral part of our Classic West Cornwall golf tour.
