Trevose Golf Club

Cornwall, England

Overview

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

The Championship Course at Trevose Golf Club is found on the west side of the Trevose Headland, overlooking both Constantine Bay and Booby's Bay Beach with uninterrupted views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Trevose Golf Club Synopsis

The links are set out classically with two loops of nine. After two opening par 4's, the next three holes of the outward nine hug the coastline. The back nine makes the most of the inland portion of the property. The front nine ends with a Par 5 and the back nine begins with a Par 5.

The course is described by Donald Steel as 'almost downland... a longer, more open course in a shallow bowl." It's "less eccentric and less blind" than its neighbour St Enodoc across the bay.

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.
