What the club says: Working with the natural beauty of majestic rolling parkland, with a wealth of mature trees and lakes, Thomas' brief was to create a course to be enjoyed by all who wished to play. With a range of tees on every hole, the higher handicapped golfer is not overwhelmed by too difficult a course, yet from the back tees in events which include the European Challenge Tour Championships, even the greatest from the professional ranks find this stunning course a challenging test of their skills.

Most Helpful Review

An enjoyable challenge

Played here as part of a corporate event and really liked the course. It's long and difficult with lots to think about on the way. The nick of the fairways and greens was great though the greens were a devil to read. Staff were great and if you travel to this course you'll not be disappointed with the investment in time. Thoroughly recommend fed!! - Sep 9 2017

Awesome
Outstanding course. Even with temporary greens, it was a fantastic evening's golf! The dry weather had no impact and the fairway's were lush!

Good course
A good course with very well kept fairways and bunkers. The greens were not quite up to the same standard, being not as smooth as I expected. Putts were thus more testing than they should have been. Overall though it was a fair test with some interesting challenges.

Beautiful
What a stunning course. The attention to detail around the course is awesome, was a pleasure to be there. Stunning views, babbling streams, tree lined adges, even the approach by car through some of Cornwall's most enchanting wooded roads. Was quite a soggy round and will come back in the better weather.

Great course and Hotel
Very nice course, great layout with some interesting holes, was a little wet under foot and green a little scruffy, but may be due to time of year.

Steven H rated 3 out of 5 - Aug 30 2017

Too difficult for medium handicappers. Bunkers unfairly placed in front of almost all greens and both sides of almost every drive. Course management of typical hotel course - over booked resulting in 5hrs round!

Had a bad day at the office but what a great course. Fast greens, bunkers in all the right places and you had to think about every shot. I will return to what has been one of the best courses I have played on.
