Bowood Park Golf Course
Winner of Golf Monthly Magazines Gold Course Award for the western region, Bowood Park Golf Course is one of the most outstanding of all Cornwall’s parkland golf courses.
(Independently rated via Golfshake)
With 6,735 yards of parkland golf, this par 72 is certainly no push over. However as a venue which prides itself on maximising the enjoyment of guests the course is regularly set up in a manner which allows this. The high spec USGA greens means the course is rarely forced to close its doors or even to utilise temporary greens and tees.
Bowood’s excellent layout brings your group back to the clubhouse after 9 and 18 and meanders through woodland and some 26 lakes and ponds. Some wonderful highlights adorn the course as you work your way round this incredibly well designed track. Take on the 600 yard 7th before eventually finding the signature 12th, “Azalea”. This par 4 requires accuracy to the fairway with water running all the way down your right hand side, before a targeted approach will find a small and protected island green.
As promised the 18th second shot gives you a view of the clubhouse. This set up allows for a fantastic atmosphere as you watch groups finish their round before retiring to the clubhouse bar.

Bowood Park is situated just outside of Camelford on the A39. The area is littered with attractions just a short trip from the venue. The National Trust coastline and gardens provide the opportunity to enjoy a scenic walk. Alternatively you could visit Port Isaac, the location for the filming of TV series Doc Martin.
Less than a 2 mile walk is Camelford, with a host of pubs and restaurants on offer. The old town is the perfect place to unwind after tackling the 6000 yards at Bowood Park and is well worth factoring into your golf trip.
