What we say
Cornwall is best known for its coastal courses such as St Enodoc and Trevose, but this is one of the county’s leading inland layouts. Actually it’s a couple of miles from the coast and is neat and tidy, picturesque and challenging with many holes featuring tree-lined fairways. It’s a gently undulating layout but relatively easy-walking. You have to be on your mettle throughout, especially at the par-3 17th which requires a 170-yard carry over water from the medal tee. Also, you need to be aware that OB comes into play on five holes.
Founded in 1922, Tehidy Park Golf Club is a parkland golf course that provides a challenge for golfers of all abilities. Its mature tree-lined fairways coupled with strategically placed water hazards place a premium on accuracy. Expect a warm welcome at this friendly Cornish venue and enjoy a drink after your round in comfortable surroundings.

Upon entering the driveway you are instantly struck with the feeling that a good course should offer, this being one of peace, qaulity and natural beauty. The clubhouse and pro shop are the starting point of your round offering a range of facilities and a well stocked although slightly over priced shop. The course also offers practice nets and both chipping and putting greens. Once ready for the challenge ahead you are lead to the 1st tee which overlooks much of the back 9 bringing golfer gradually back to the clubhouse. Straight away you can see that the course consists of tight fair ways and plenty of lentgh for fun with the big stick. As I played my way around this beautifull course I was continually reminded of the need for accuracy off the tee, however the scale and length of the course allowed a great deal of freedom on the approach offering the chance for some real creativity especially when playing around the various lakes and bunkers in place. Although I enjoyed the need for strategy and accuarcy I was disapointed with the majority of the greens. Personally I found that the greens were very fast and failed to offer a challenge, however this could be as I am used to lumpy greens. Playing after the Sunday comp as the sun began to set was definately a good idea as it highlighted the beauty of the course whilst also being quiet enough to fully appreciate each shot, I will definately be returning to Tehidy although the membership process and air of exclusivity could be potentially intimidating during busier periods.
The course is very testing with lots of tree lined fairways and tight drives.It would be a stern test for most to play to their handicap. A feature hole would probably be the par 3 17th with a tee shot some 175 yard carry over 3 lakes to a well guarded green. Very welcoming and superb food preprared by Martin
