Trevose Golf Club
Donald Steel claims that for "the purpose of enjoyable holiday play, there is none finer in Britain." With the foodie retreat of Padstow and St Enodoc next door, we have to agree.
The golf course hosted the Brabazon Trophy in 2008, The McGregor Trophy in 2012, and the English Men's County Finals in 2017. It is due to host the European Legends Links Championship in 2021.
Golf Course Review

Trevose’ Architectural Heritage
The course was laid out in 1926 by Harry Colt. Sir Guy Campbell would make changes in the late 1930s. Recently, MacKenzie & Ebert have overhauled the design.
