Apart from it being outside and on grass, you can not honestly describe this as a Golf course. Square greens with more bounce than an inflatable castle and putting over dandelions and other unrecognisable weeds is not my idea of a pleasant golfing experience. Great views yes, but you can get the same view from any other cliff top along this coastline. Mark Twain was quoted as having said "Golf is a good walk spoiled", In my opinion he had just walked the course at Whitsand Bay before he wrote it.

Played at Whitsand Bay for the first time and was very disappointed with the whole experience. Actually no changing/shower or toilet facilities as apparently the owners are building new ones. Speaking with a member before my round and he said although there is a hole in the ground since January they have been promised new facilities for years, which is why so many members have left. The shop is a shed with a very limited choice (apart from Nike)
The course was probably a little better then I expected after my initial impression, but still not great. Nice views out to sea though.

Looking tired, lacking TLC. Green keepers driving sit down tractors on greens leaving tyre marks on green. No sand in bunkers. Greens patchy, especially 3rd, 14th, 18th.

No sign of attempts to repair damage from winter weather.

Not worth the visit! Great views and the 3rd is a really good par 3, but that's where it stops. Facilities very poor.

Lots of bad reviews about the facilities, which I guess from my experience are pretty valid. The course itself isn't great and was in average condition, but the views were pretty stunning from the 2nd hole by the coast. I think if the course had some investment would be ok plus the outdated facilities need looking at. A bit of a strange set up with no golf club house, but you can get a drink in the hotel bar if you want. Interesting experience, but don't think I will be back.

Enjoyed the course but disappointing customer service

Came to Cornwall for a weekend away and played twice at this beautiful course, challenging but with stunning views. Overall had a good experience with the golf course and club house, unfortunately was spoiled slightly when wanting to return an unused item to the club shop, and was told it ‘wasn’t the done thing’ and made to feel very uncomfortable. Considering we had already spent £200 here this weekend we would have hoped for more understanding. We were planning to stay for lunch but sadly did not feel comfortable enough to stay. It is a shame as overall we thoroughly enjoyed the course but unsure if we would return again.

Links course, very nice and playable any time of the year! Very friendly staff. When windy it is a real challenge, on calm days good scoring is possible.

What a little gem. Not long but with the challenge of the small greens, testing weather and dramatic elevation changes on a number of holes it doesn?t need to be.

The tee boxes were the only downside of the day as I feel they could have been in a better condition.

Wouldn?t hesitate to return and play here next time I?m in the area.

Stunning.

Had a round while on holiday. Stunning scenery . Quite a tight course if your shots tend to be a bit wayward.

Superb tight course

I played this course in the twilght heat of july.
Some very memorable holes especially the short part three third hole where the greens is hidden in a sort of cover.
Sadly there's not much practice facilities there is however new changing rooms and showers which were very clean overall very good.

played the course in 2016 july I thought it was a lovely course. a mixture of parkland and lynx golf. stunning views over the bay, lots of interesting holes by the sea. the course is mature (1905) well set up and the greens were good when I played.

I have played here a couple of times over the years, the last time was early in Sept.

As has been said before this is not the longest course but on a windy day it is a true test of golf. My favourite hole was the third with the green fashioned in a bomb crater, definitely a marmite hole!

The club does not have the most Upton date facilities but this is more than made up by the friendly and accommodating staff.

They offer excellent food in the linked hotel and offer excellent value for money.

If you are in the area and are looking for a great value round of golf you won't go far wrong.
