If you come on holiday with your golf clubs, there are some spectacular courses to play in West Cornwall…
West Cornwall Golf Club
The location of this course is absolutely stunning. The club itself is on a country lane that links the main road into St Ives with Lelant Saltings, and Porthkidney Beach and the Hayle Estuary form a backdrop to most of the 18 holes with Godrevy Lighthouse visible from some. The club welcomes visitors, with tee times bookable on their website and some discounts available for certain times of the day. The club house has a restaurant with a reputation for good food and a friendly bar with a dress code of smart casual. The course is playable all year round, as it is built on sand and so has good drainage, and can offer lessons from the golf pros based at the club. West Cornwall offers a really comprehensive and traditional golf experience – make sure you visit here during your holiday.

Tregenna Castle Resort
Tregenna Castle Resort has a slightly more inland golf course with great views over the coast line and St Ives itself. The facilities are excellent, as you have access to Tregenna Castle Hotel with its high-quality cafes and bars after your round. 18 holes cost £15 per person, and equipment can also be hired there, just in case you weren’t allowed to pack your own set of clubs! The course itself is a challenging par 54, although a relatively short course, and is open year round to everyone. It can be very busy in the school holidays – so be sure to reserve your slot. There is no dress code, and the course itself has a more relaxed feel. Find more details and make your booking here.
