What we say
Breathtaking James Braid links overlooking the beach and Atlantic, Perranporth is full of twists, turns and quirks so if you haven’t played it before make sure you do plenty of research otherwise you’re likely to come badly unstuck. Expect the unexpected here: you’re regularly required to smash ‘blind’ drives – usually over enormous sand dunes slap bang in front of you. Aim for the marker posts on top of them, trust your swing...and hope for the best.
Memorable holes come thick and fast and it’s extremely unlikely you’ll ever face a more demanding par-3 than Perranporth’s absolutely awesome 197-yards 4th, the green perilously sitting on a narrow ledge amidst the dunes. There are also some sensational views to drink in, notably those from the 5th and 14th, but beware you can’t afford to get distracted for a single second. Fantastic fun though whether you’re teeing it up in a competition or friendly fourball.
St Enodoc and Trevose may be the links kings of Cornwall but this little clifftop belter is not far behind them. It overlooks the town’s sandy beach and is another James Braid gem, impressively picking up after a straightforward par-4 start. It’s quirky – with several ‘blind’ drives – but challenging and great fun. If you trust the marker posts on top of the dunes, you shouldn’t go far wrong. There are plenty of stand-out holes but you won’t play a more demanding par 3 than the 197-yard 4th.
One of the finest links courses in the South West, Perranporth Golf Club boasts spectacular panoramic vistas: with stunning views of the coastline and of the extensive golden sands below, few golf courses can boast a more breathtaking location than this.
