Golf Course Review

Bude & North Cornwall Golf was founded in 1891. Initially, the club and course were strictly for members only with the local townsfolk on the outside looking in. In 1919, the artisan club known as Bude Town Golf Club was established and allowed locals access to the course but not the clubhouse. In 1949, the two clubs merged into a single club.

There is evidence to support the idea the course was laid out by prolific Victorian golf course architect, Tom Dunn. The original 9 hole course was being played in 1890. In 1891, the course was relaid and an 18 hole course reported by September of 1892. It would seem that up to 1921, the course was in a state of constant flux! At one time, there were 18 holes and a separate nine-hole Ladies Course!

The current course is as varied as any you'll find. There are highs and lows on every level with small greens, uneven stances on rolling land and tumultuous greens. Recently, it was celebrated as one of Britain's Best Golf Courses Under £100! Bude & North Cornwall Golf Club is a throwback to simpler times and rudimentary golf course architecture. This is not a criticism but actually, the reason to come!
