What the club says: Merlin Golf Club has an 18 hole course, with each hole designed to present the golfer with a different challenge which was designed to be an enjoyable walk , however the option of hiring buggies is available.

Nice course, but could be better

A few greens have suffered due to the recent heatwave. Course could be improved if green staff finished jobs off that they started e.g. bunker on the 2nd has been GUR for months. Some investment required to bring it up to the standard of other courses in the area.

Lawn mower was broken so grass was long, we weren’t informed prior to teeing off, long story short, over priced. Looks like they are used to tourists and taking them for granted. Shame, maybe we didn’t see the course at its best……………don’t take tourists for granted.

Played on 1st July & greens were heavily sanded- possibly the slowest I have ever putted on.\ Tees uncut & chewed up.\ Clover everywhere on fairways.\ Course layout poor.\ Never again.

Not worth the money

Great location and was optimistic to start. Caught in the middle of two fantastic golf courses. A middle price too but not worth ?30. Chose to play this having not played it before. Fairways were OK but could do with a cut. Greens on first 10 were not great. Could do with a cut and more attention.

Reviewed Jun 11 2018

I've played Merlin 2 or 3 times now in a society, most recently in May. I feel as if the course is coming on leaps and bounds and it just keeps going from strength to strength. Course is always presented well, its very well priced for how good the course is. The clubhouse is neat and tidy and the staff are always helpful and cheerful. Got a driving range so you can practice before your round (if you can call it practicing, more like gearing up for my awful golf). All in all a lovely club I don't know how anyone could moan about the course or the price. Thoroughly looking forward to playing here again in July.

Reviewed Apr 8 2018

Was down in Cornwall for the week. Played Newquay and Merlin on consecutive days, which really highlighted the difference;
Course variety in holes
Course conditions
Price

Newquay has a elevation and differing holes, Merlin is generally up and backs.Newquays course and greens were good and constant, Merlins had standing water all over the course and even greens!!
Newquay was cheaper, and we were only allowed to use the buggy for 12 holes but had to play full price.
I don't think I have ever been so disappointed in a round of golf.
Value for money, 0 stars.
