In all honesty I am surprised to find this course listed. After living in St. Ives for a few years I have had many rounds of golf at this course and therefore can offer an in depth reveiw. The reason behind my opening statement is that in recent history the course has only consisted of 14 holes, many of which are small and fail to offer a challenge. The course also has a history of failing to handle the rain with the greens flooding and becoming un playable. However after returning to the course after a 2 year break from golf I was pleasently surprised to find that the course has been extended to 18 holes with the addition of drainage systems. The extra holes make for a longer and more enjoyable round of golf with the original breathtaking veiws of St. Ives, the castle and the coast still intact. Hole number 7 tees in front of the castle offering a short and steep down hill pitch that over looks the whole of St. Ives as it sticks out into the sea. A veiw that any golfer would appreciate. As you hit the back 9 the course almost seems to change to several links type holes that definately offer more of a challenge. On the whole the beauty of the area and the welcoming facilities of the castle and its staff over come the fact it is still £15 a round with no discounts or memberships offered for what is still a relatively short course.
