  About the course 

Trevose Golf and Country Club is situated on one of the most beautiful stretches of the North Coast of Cornwall. Trevose offers an ideal holiday for either the real golfing enthusiasts or for others who wish to play golf on occasions and enjoy the other amenities that are available in, or close to the complex. There are three course to play, the Championship Course, a nine-hole full length course and one nine-hole 'short' course, par 29, measuring 1,360 yards/1,244 metres. The championship course was laid out by Harry Colt - the same man responsible for amongst others, Muirfield, Lytham St. Annes, Pine Valley, Wentworth and Sunningdale. The course has four sets of tees. These afford varying degrees of difficulty for players fom the professional to the higher handicap player. The wind at Trevose can often play a decisive role and prevent low scoring. There are many well positioned bunkers and a stream meanders through much of the course. The fairways are wide and links-like in texture, making for easy walking. The fairways have seldom, if ever, been out of play and even on the wettest day, there is rarely any standing water. The rough is purposely kept short to ensure that not too many balls are lost and to keep play moving. All greens and tees have automatic computerised watering and are large and like many seaside courses have undulations and burrows not easy to read. There's only one blind shot on the course and without doubt Trevose is one of the fairest tests of golf in the U.K. The new nine-hole course was opened in May 1993 by Peter Alliss who had nothing but praise for its environmentally friendly and natural layout. Less busy than the championship course, 2, 3 and 4 ball matches are allowed at most times. Every hole has good landscaping and from the 5th tee the view along the coastline is outstanding. The short nine holer has been in existence for over 30 years and is an excellent test for the beginners, the older person who just wants a little exercise, the juniors who are not quite sure of themselves or the seasoned golfers who need to brush up their iron play. It is in excellent order and new tees have been constructed with all the greens having automatic computerised watering. The focal point of the clubhouse is a well furnished air-conditioned bar which overlooks the putting green and the first and eighteenth fairways. The view of the course and Atlantic coastline from the large bay window in the bar is spectacular with the sea and sky formations forever changing so one never tires of the scenery. The bar is open to temporary as well as annual members during the local public house licensing hours of the district. Leading from the bar are two other rooms, a games room to cater for the children's needs and a snooker room for the adults. Other amenities include: Games room with tennis tables, pool, video machines, snooker room, 3 hard all-weather tennis courts, heated outdoor swimming pool, 6 glorious sandy bays within about one mile of the clubhouse, with open sea bathing, good surfing conditions and a magnificent coastline for walks. Other attractions: Trevose Golf & Country Club is ideally situated as a starting point for some excellent excursions round North Cornwall. There are some beautiful walks along the coastline following the coastal path, either north to Harlyn Bay - an excellent beach particularly with children, and only half-hour walk away, or south to Watergate Bay. By car you can explore the wild beauty of Bodmin Moor - just 20 miles east of Trevose, with many species of moor and marsh birds. Following the coast, going north, a pleasant half hour drive will take you to the famous ruins of Tintagel Castle, painted by numerous artists through the centuries, which nestles in the lush green hills just across from Port Isaac Bay. Before Tintagel, however, is Padstow, with its renovated harbour well protected from the Atlantic's winter storms. It has many good shops, pubs and eating houses. Visit the beautiful St. Petroc's Church with its early English tower, beautiful woodwork within the church and its distinctive churchyard's cross and do not miss the splendour of Prideaux Place in Padstow - an excellent example for Elizabethan architecture. Other activities that can be enjoyed outside the golf club are many and varied. Surfing comes to mind immediately with the north Cornwall coastline being the most popular in Britain for Malibu and body surfing. For sailing enthusiasts the estuary at Padstow offers ample sailing opportunities together with wind surfing and water skiing. Horse riding and pony trekking are also available locally and there is a first class stable at St. Merryn.
