Stunning course, great condition. Wind makes it tricky but fairly open, wide fairways etc, so good for mid to high handicappers as well as low. Well worth a visit.

What a Excellent course, this is the second time I have played here in as many months. Would happily drive an hour to play here, you will not be disappointed. We played here after all the bad wind and rain and the course was in really good condition only 1 temperary tee, amazing.
All 8 in the group agree on what a great course, I would say its just as good the Kernow course if not a little better.

Very good course for holiday golf . Fairways wide enough so that you don't loose balls but still tight enought to make it a test. Found the greens to have enough slope in them to make you think without the stupid slopes you find on some courses. Overall condition of the course very good,staff polite and helpfull. My only gripe was the pace of play quite slow and no ranger on duty. Would play every week if I lived there.

What a fantastic course. We go to Cornwall quite often for a short break & to play golf at it's many hidden gems & this simply has to be the jewel in the crown. Everything was immaculate, the fairways, bunkers & even the rough. The greens were in fantastic condition with only the odd bobble. It's a long narrow course in the sense that until you have played the 10th you're walking away from the club house. There is plenty of room for the odd stray one but don't bite off more than you can chew. The staff in the pro shop & the club house couldn't do enough for us & made us feel very comfortable. If you are going to or live in Cornwall & haven't played here yet it's a must. We cant wait for our return in October.

This course was very well maintained and brilliant to play on. The greens were immaculate and the fairway was very well kept and amazing to play off. It is a challenging course with varying holes so very enjoyable. I would recommend this course to anybody.

Great experience all round. Opted for a later tee off at 3pm and had the course to ourselves (on a Saturday in early August). Slim guy in the pro shop was very welcoming and friendly which I think is important.
First hole is great, just what you want from a coastal course - wide fairway, bit of wind, a great view and it looked very well kept. The greens were awesome - so undulating and quick considering there had been a lot of rain. All in all, it was a great experience and can't wait to play it again!

Had a weeks holiday at St Austell and played the course twice. I was fortunate on the first day as the weather was warm and the wind light. The course played well and was in good condition. There were a nice number of holes that were reachable in regulation even for short-hitters such as myself.

The second day the wind got up a little and gave me a small taste of what the course might be like when the wind blows even harder. Still enjoyed my round.

Both times I played the course wasn't very busy and I got round in 3 hours playing by myself. These were twilight tee times at 4.00pm and cost £25.

I thought that the overall package was good value and enjoyable. Wel worth a visit.

Scenic course bad members

Visited on a golfnow afternoon deal which was lot cheaper than advertise prices which are extortionate, got partnered with others however they had gone out meaning played solo.
Lovely course with amazing views front 9 and then more based country way back. Managed a birdie and 99 having not played it before.
However pace of play was too fast members behind were all grouped or buggies so had to constantly let through, some quite rude and in accommodating as course newbie
One guy even cut over skipping the turn and was right behind me every hole tee to green but didn?t want play through!
May go again but only on a cheap deal as not amazing and members need a better attitude

Gem on the South coast

Absolutely love this course. When you stand on the first tee with the sun shining and look out over the sea then its total perfection . Overall the course requires accurate driving and offers a good chance to imbeat your handicap. Only criticism is that it can get a little busy but if you choose your times well its not a problem on reality.

Well worth a visit

Most holes very good with great views over the bay. 14, 15 and 16 are parkland and not so interesting. We stayed at the hotel and 1 round per day was complimentary - excellent value!

Front 9 along coastline, great views...back 9 spoilt by a factory just off the course. Generally, a pleasant course to play and cheaper than the other local coastline courses.

Great views

Very nice parkland course with beautiful coastal views.
Most expensive course in the local area at £55 but course plays nicely.
Greens played quick even though they had been treated.
