Always Getting Better

Still enjoy going back to St Ives for a game after all these years.

The courses always seems to get better, this time I found the fairways to be in great condition and the greens always seem to run really well.

When the wind picks up some hole can be a real test, but that mean when you are playing with the wind its a good chance to open and and have a bit of fun.

The water does come into play on a good handful of holes so keep a watch out for that.
17 and 18 are a great couple of holes to finish on.

Always Getting Better

Every time I visit St Ives I find it gets better and better. The work that has been done to improve the course is always on going which is great to see.

Personally I don't like the term 'Inland Links' but that's exactly what it is, with pretty much just the 1 tree over the back on the par 5.

The course is maturing with the tough rough growing up in places and even though the greens were soft they are still super fast. Some real challenging hole.

Its wide open here so the wind can pick up and definitely play a few shots harder.

Always enjoyable.

Great condition as always!

I do visit St Ives about 8 or 9 times a year as it gives me a nice break from the parkland courses I'm used to playing.

St Ives can be really forgiving when the rough is down, a inland links in every sense. You can go offline from the tee and still have a shot, as long as you have avoided the water hazards.

The greens are getting better and better each time I visit and I always see work being carried out to improve the course - this time on some of the bunkers.

Over the years the course has matured and got better and better.

It is very open to the elements so if windy you can expect a tough game, but that's all part of the fun!

Fantastic course and friendly atmosphere. The course plays differently each time I play, as it’s very open the weather keeps things interesting. Likely to challenge all abilities of golfer with top notch practise facilities, course maintenance & staff. Highly recommended!

Superb inland links course. Well worth visiting

Despite the baking hot weather scorching the fairways - which were like concrete - the course played remarkably well. The greens were in good condition and well watered and the rough, whilst being penal in places was harsh but fair. Just loved the layout of this well designed course and it was a pleasure to play. The club is friendly and my only gripe was that there was no hot food available, but with the weather being so hot, maybe no bad thing! Highly recommended

A Beautiful day to play golf. St ives with as less wind as possible should be the best time to play this challenging course

Excellent links style course

I have played some of the courses in St.Andrews, and whilst this is not a true links course, it is a VERY good imitation. It plays tough and long, especially into the wind. The course is in cracking condition and the practice facilities are first class. Easily the best course in the area.

Played January 15 being my 1st visit and this is certainly a course I want to play again at the start of the season. Fairways and greens and possibly the best I've played on this winter. Pro shop staff very friendly. I'd recommend a visit to this course for anyone.

This is an extremly challaging course when windy as it was for my first game here today. There are hazards very well placed to catch you out. The greens are true but have plenty on contours making them tricky to read on the long putts. The fairways are some of the best I have come across this year very lush. The rough can be punishing if or when you get into it. Overall one of the best courses I have played this year, a real gem of a find.

Fabulous course and facilities. Poor weather meant that there was a lot of standing water on the fairways so only criticism would be that drainage could be a bit better. No water at all on the excellent greens which still played quite quick and true. Overall, an excellent place to play

Maturing nicely

This course continues to mature and looks fantastic at the moment. The fairways look narrow and the rough thick, but that is deceiving as the rough is light and whispy for the majority. The greens are vast and have many pin options. The practice facilities are excellent. A worth while day out.

Worth visiting

Whilst St Ives golf club was founded in the 1920's, this layout was only bought in 2007, and opened in 2010. It does however seem a lot more mature, although there is a distinct sparsity of trees. This makes the course seem quite open, but it has the advantage of making it difficult to play when the wind gets up.

Lockdown had just been eased when we played, so no rakes in bunkers, and the course was being started from the 10th tee. We didn't know this, so teed off at the 1st, and the pro-shop guy came out and we were allowed to play on, and then booked a tee time for the 10th tee. This was all very amicably arranged, and seemed to work well.

Fariways were in excellent condition, as were the greens, even though they looked like they had just been spiked, they still rolled quite true, and were a good pace, although a couple of our fourball seemed to struggle to get the pace. Although there were no rakes, we were not told the bunkers were out of play, so we played those shots, and smoothed the sand as best we could. Most seemed to be well stocked with sand, but some recent rain left one or two a little compacted. The tees were really good as well, all very flat and cut to a good level (some places have not been due to green keepers only doing the basics). The rough looks like it could swallow lots of golf balls, but it was surprisingly whispy, and therefore easy to find the wayward or wind affected shots, and to play them most of the time. There are a few ponds around which did claim a number of balls from our fourball, although I managed to finish with the same ball, which helped towards 33 stableford points (including a poor finish of 1 point at each of the last 3 holes!)

We played as guests of a member, and are aware the cost would be ?25 midweek with a member, or ?40 without.

The clubhouse seemed to be fully open, although it was a nice enough day that most people were sitting outside. The Pro-shop was closed when we were there, so can't comment on prices etc for stock.

This was my first visit to play St Ives, although I did get measured at the Titleist Fitting Centre (based there) a few years ago. Looking forward to going back again, and we're already talking about going as early as next week.
