What we say
Harry Colt links with a great mix of holes though the only glimpse of the sea is at the stunning par-5 4th – the green dramatically overlooks the beach – and the following tee. The 3rd and 8th are classy short holes and the par-4 18th with its raised green provides a tough finale.
Flanking Constantine and Booby’s Bays, Trevose is an absolute joy to play with Harry Colt’s masterpiece featuring several memorable holes with the par-5 beach-side 4th being the pick of them. Classic Harry Colt links which fittingly climaxes with an ultra-demanding par-4 – you need to produce something special to find the raised last green which sits beyond a road and falls away on all sides.
Golf-wise you need to go a long way to top the view of Booby's Bay that provides the backdrop for the Championships Golf Course's spectacular 4th hole. Food-wise no trip to this corner of Cornwall would be complete without a trip to Rick Stein's restaurant in nearby Padstow though for ease and value try the top TV chef's fish and chip shop on the quay.
The Championship Course at Trevose Golf Club will host prestigious amateur tournament The Brabazon trophy in 2008 and was originally laid out by Harry Colt and is a true test of golfing skill. With traditionally quick greens all year round, quality golf is available twelve months of the year. The Championship Golf Course is supported by two other layouts. The Headland Golf Course is the ideal alternative if the Championship Golf Course is busy or you would like a quiet nine holes on your own. The par 35 golf course was opened in 1995 by Peter Alliss and offers a challenging layout and fast greens.
Meanwhile, the Short Golf Course was built in 1965 and is available for beginners, juniors or those wanting to refine their short game. This beautifully laid out golf course runs around streams, over hills and detours past the ruins of the 5th century Roman Church and the 2nd century St. Constantine's Well, which was still in use until 1568.
Stay & Play: The golf club accommodation consists of 10 luxury flats, eight sleeping two people and two sleeping four people, five bungalows and seven chalets all sleeping five people. There's also the Fairway Cottage and the Golf Club Flat and Cabins which each sleep six and two single and 11 double dormy flats. Altogether, Trevose can accommodate over 120 guests at any one time.

I played this on the 2-4-1. This cost us £20 per head with the 2-4-1 and was a fantastic bargain. I did have to pay a £10 a head deposit which was a gamble in such weather. Its on a par with Burnham & Berrow but at £20 a great bargain. As it was the end of January and still very cold they were very glad to see us. We drove down from Bristol so were not best pleased to see the closed signs after a 3 hr drive! However, the brief snow that morning gave way to a lovely day. What a fantastic course. We had heard stories of how the greens had been killed a few years ago by overfeeding. They were flawless when we were there. The course has had a great deal of work done on it to maintain its conditions. But not slapdash. Drains were clear and trimmed. The club house was welcoming but the catering chaotic but then there was very few people about so we can forgive them! Watch out for the views! Waves crashing over distant crags and golden beaches over the hedgerows. We didn't stay overnight but there was loads of accomodation beside the cousre which may mean it will be busy in the summer. Try it this time of the year is my recommendation. A real pleaseure and we had it all to ourselves. Thank you Trevose!
As a regular visitor (for 10 years) of Trevose Golf and Country Club I'm delighted to see that the course has once again returned to magnificent condition. The greens were particularly well kept when I visited on the 10th of September 2009, providing a fast and true putting surface. I took the time to personally thank the greens staff for the excellent presentation of the course. We were also delighted with our accommodation, which since our last stay has been updated to a very high standard. Both staff and club members have always been freindly and welcoming at Trevose. I would highly recommend people to return to a fantastic golfing venue.
This course is a must to anyone touring the South West . Fantastic coastal location and challenging but well designed course. Beware deep bunkers everywhere!! The greens are very quick and have huge undulations which can be quite daunting This is a links course with quite punishing rough but generally a lot of room to play your shots. I played this course on a benign day , I am sure the course would be a lot tougher in windy conditions. Great course a must to play.
