What the club says: Taking advantage of the natural contours of the landscape means that James Braid, course designer, was successful in creating each hole with its own individual demands and character. Not only this, but the greens which are fast and absolutely true have a reputation for being amongst the best in the south west.

At 6296 yards this exciting par 72 is a challenge for both high and low handicappers. It is a course you will want to return to play time and time again.

It's a tough one!

Firstly I can't comment on the food or drinks as I was short on time.
As for the course I has numerous observations.
1) It's tough. If you don't like blind shots or hills then its best avoided. I lost count of the number of blind shots required from both Tee and fairway!
2) If you cant drive/hit straight then bring lots of balls or send a friend ahead to spot for all the blind shots.
3) If its windy double up on point 2. Stray shots are often difficult to find in the Heather/Brambles and long grass.
4) The greens were good. Undulating and tricky pace but receptive.
5) It has great views of the town, cliffs, sea and beach.
6) There is only one water hazard! But a few reveted bunkers to collect your ball.
Would I recommend it? Yes, but only if you are playing with a group or are of a fair standard... Not for a novice.

Cornwall's Hidden Gem?

I really enjoyed my round at Perranporth, the views are simply stunning.
You need to set your expectations with this, its a tight tricky layout with a fair few blind tee shots, its definitely a course that you would maybe play better the 2nd time round.

That said don't be put off, the fun quirky layout has possibly to best views around - Especially the 4th tee - and the general condition of the course is great.

I would recommend this course if visiting and looking for some courses to play. It may be in the shadows of St Enodoc and Trevose for example but its just as fun.

Crazy golf

We played this on a sunny day with some breeze. The whole course was firm and dry, the greens were fairly fast but did have bumps. The first is a straight downhill par 4, after which there are lots of blind or semi-blind shots. However you can hit a good tee shot straight over the marker post and struggle to find your ball (due to surprising bounces). There are greens with false fronts which can catch you out. There are also some long carrys over markers. As the course is difficult the pace of play was slow. There are spectacular views over the beach and sea. I have played twice and never want to play this course again.

Not many courses are going to divide opinion like this one. On the plus side, good warm up area, great views of dramatic scenery. Attractive modern clubhouse. Course has some simple short par 4’s but far more longer approaches to steeply plateaued greens. Likely to be very challenging for any golfer in any but the most benign conditions. Greens were fine, fairways struggling after a dry spring,
A lot of blind tee shots aimed over marker posts, a couple of which are going to leave you in trouble if you don’t carry it well over 220. Incredibly tough walk. Very exposed to any wind. Biggest problem on our visit is it’s far too random when the course is firm, if you haven’t played it before. Bit like playing on a skateboard park, luck is always in play on a proper links but running from one side of the fairway to the other, and then into trouble, is going to prove trying for most.
I’d still recommend playing it, but as a visitor really only when it’s green and receptive. Very hard course to rank, but I think on balance about right on here.

Wonderful days golf

Tough and challenging but a wonderful day - golf played on a hillside overlooking the bay. Very dramatic views and holes throughout, most/all golfers will be tested. Highlight of the day was the welcome and hospitality from all working at the club, we appreciated the genuinely warm welcome.

One of the most enjoyable rounds of golf in a long time. I rocked up at 8.30 for the first non-member tee time in drizzly misty and cold conditions, had a terrible first drive but things got better from there. It's hard to describe as Perranporth isn't like the other N.Cornwall links courses, it's so hilly with multiple blind shots and extreme accuracy needed. Unlike illustrious neighbours up the coast, getting up and down in two around the greens can be a lesson in madness because of the raised greens, steep run offs and thick rough. It's not particularly long but with a sea mist and winds coming at you from all angles it's a keen test. The condition of the fairways and greens is superb, the club has a friendly helpful pro shop and bar, and is excellent value. Will be returning for definite.
