Current host to the Seniors European Tour. Championship links golf in its truest form 

Are you looking for a links resort golf break? Trevose Golf Club is very likely the answer for your next golf trip!

View Trevose stay & play packages >

 

The Championship Course at Trevose is the most southerly of the famed Atlantic Links network and is widely regarded and one of the finest links golf courses in England. Currently a host venue on the European Seniors Tour and in recent years a host to huge prestigious events including The Brabazon Trophy (2008), The McGregor Trophy (2012), and the English Men’s County Finals (2017).

Trevose is more than a links course where wind is its only protection. Recent extensive course developments mean each hole has real definition and the incorporation of dunes and sand into certain holes such as the 2nd and 15th give an almost desert feel to particular areas of the course. The 3rd is a spectacular par 3 over a valley, running parrell to the beach whilst the 4th is perhaps one of the most memorable par 5’s in the South West. A risk-reward dog leg that has your approach played into the backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean and cliffs of Trevose Head.

Condition is generally very good 12 months of the year, but of course peaks in the summer months where Trevose is only rivaled by it’s neighbour in St Enodoc Golf Club.

After you’ve played the final 4 par, an uphill challenge to an elevated green set between the clubhouse and fairway lodges, you’ll retire to surely one of the finest clubhouse views you’ve likely ever seen. The contemporary clubhouse offers panoramic views across almost the whole course which is best enjoyed with a pint of Tribute and Cornish Pasty!

Trevose has various accommodation options on-site and a number of off-site activities including a swimming pool, tennis courts and games room. View our resort page for more info.

Course overview

Lying in the heart of Cornwall, Newquay Golf Club is a scenic 18 hole course with wonderful views overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. This links course will suit beginners and serious golfers alike and due to its location Newquay generally offers golfers quality all year round.

There is no shortage of accommodation options within walking distance of the course and it is situated just a short stroll from the main town. The Clubhouse sits high at the top of the golf course, where the 1st tee, 11th green & 18 green all meet.

Although the course doesn’t appear to be spread out, the design gives you plenty of room between holes! A fair test but the wind can ruin any scorecard. What to look out for – The views are fantastic, even if your game isn’t at it’s best, you won’t have a sad face in the group.

Feature hole – Personally, the par 5, 8th hole is a great test, watch out for that lone bunker in the fairway, it gobbles up more drives than you think. Newquay will quite often be the staple of any golf tour!

A genuine hidden links gem in a glorious setting overlooking the Atlantic Ocean

Perranporth Golf Club was designed by famous course architect James Braid and is located on the rugged cliffs above the beaches of Perranporth. This wonderfully constructed links ranks inside the top 100 courses in the UK and is one of the South West’s foremost golfing destinations.

Forever the bridesmaid to its better known Atlantic neighbours (Trevose & St Enodoc), Perranporth has been called the South West’s hidden gem. In more recent years it is however rightfully receiving the accolades it deserves, moving up to a ranking of 2nd in Cornwall and 62nd in England.

Perranporth Golf Club is full of natural contours, which means each hole is a unique experience. This 6296 yard, par 72 with its undulating fairways, lightning-fast greens and picturesque backdrops, provide an exciting challenge for players of all standards. If you are heading anyway near Padstow, Newquay, or Truro during your time in Cornwall, you simply must take a trip over to Budnic Hill and Perranporth Golf Club.

We recommend staying in a Newquay hotel, on-site at Perranporth, at Gwel an Mor Luxury Lodges or in Truro for your golf break.

Course overview

Built around the sand dunes of Porthkidney, West Cornwall Golf Club offers panoramic views from almost every hole. The oldest course in the Duchy, the course runs 5,847 yards along the banks of the River Hayle and the cliff tops that overlook St Ives Bay.

Due to its location, the course can largely change depending on the wind, meaning you may never have the same experience twice, this coupled with the stunning location, makes this Cornwall links a must-visit!

Regularly ranking well inside Cornwall’s top 10 courses, West Cornwall is the definition that length does not always define the quality of a course. Over the years the course has produced some truly magnificent golfers, including “Long” Jim Barnes, a 4-time major winner!

This wonderful links is a firm favourite of the Cornwall golf tour and regularly paired with the likes of Perranporth, Mullion, Tehidy Park and Newquay to produce a simply unforgettable golf break!

The Headland (Newquay)

Hotel overview

One of Cornwall’s highest rated hotels. The Headland Hotel has seen much investment in recent years and now commands one of the few 5* ratings found in the Duchy.

Situated, as the name suggests, on the Headland overlooking the famous Fistral Beach and set alongside Newquay Golf Club.

Inside you’ll find a hotel of real quality, with contemporary decor in the rooms, one of the UK’s best spas including a beautiful outside pool, and a host of dining options including fine dining at The Samphire, poolside dining at The Deck or al fresco dining on The Terrace.

We’ll cut to the chase here, the Headland Hotel is not for those wanting a budget option. Your stay at the Headland Hotel will be one of relaxation and luxury, taking in fine food, exquisite rooms and high-quality service. A stay at the Headland would suit smaller groups and couples who simply want the very best when it comes to accommodation.

Pictures paint a thousand words, so explore the images above to get a feel for this unrivalled Newquay hotel.

The town of Newquay has also seen significant investment over the past few years. The notorious stag do haunts have been replaced with quality restaurants and bars. Nearby to the north is Padstow which is home to the famous chef Rick Stein. For those wanting to eat in one of the finest restaurants in the county, we advise booking early at The Seafood Restaurant. Cornwall also has a number of Michelin Starred restaurants, see the list here.

Note, minimum lengths of stay apply on certain dates throughout the year including school holidays and weekends.

The local area

Newquay is a popular base for a golf break, although the Headland does certainly offer something a little higher end than other hotels in the town. The town is a great central base which ties together Cornish links courses along the Atlantic Coastline as it is a mid-point between St Ives and Padstow. Newquay Golf Course is on the same site with the hotel providing a backdrop to many photos of the golf course. Within 20-30 minutes drive either there are a large number of fantastic golf courses including Newquay, Perranporth, West Cornwall, Tehidy Park, Truro and Trevose to name but a few.

  • How do GSW keep money safe?

    We are extremely proud of the service we provide and a large part of this is ensuring our client’s money is safe. Our practices comply with the 2018 package travel directive meaning that your money is safe with both ourselves and the venues your choose to visit.

    The money for your golf break is paid into a trust account run by an independent partner, so you have peace of mind that no matter what happens, your money is being looked after.

  • What happens if we can’t go on our planned trip?

    Deposits are non-refundable, but they are transferable to a new date or break. We aim to be as flexible as possible and will treat each situation on a case by case basis.

  • Can we make changes to our break?

    Managing a group can be a thankless task and changes to the group leading up to your break are an accepted element. We make changes as stress free as possible (just see our reviews for evidence of this!). Changes can be made up to 6 weeks prior to your break. Some changes are unavoidable so for legitimate reasons we will endeavour to make last minute changes after this period, but as we would have paid our venues at this point, this would be at the discretion of the venue(s) you are visiting.

  • Why book with a tour operator?

    Good question, could you not do this all yourself? The answer is yes you could. You are able to locate the ideal hotel with the accessibility you need to the clubs you plan to play. You could go back and forth with your target venues and line up the tee times.  You could also contact each venue individually to advise them of group number changes and requests during the build up to your trip.

    Alternatively you could;

    – Talk to us about the trip you are planning.

    – Receive quotes for perfectly crafted package meeting your ideal requirements.

    – Secure the booking with small deposits staged in a way to make your life easier as an organiser.

    – Have your funds fully insured and independently held by PTS, our client trust provider.

    – Have changes made to whole tours with just one call or email.

    – Receive exclusive extras such as free places.

    – Pay less with our packages than going direct to venues.

    Why can we do this?

    Quite simply we have spent years (since 2015) forging strong relationships with hotel, golf club and golf resort venues across the South West. We are the expert tour operator for the region and are know for our high quality and personal service to our clients (just see our Google and TrustPilot reviews).

  • Who uses Golf South West?

    The majority of our clients are UK based domestic travellers. We deal with groups of any size, from single travellers and couples, to large golf societies.

    We also are the favoured golf DMC for the South West of England and preferred regional partner of Golf Tourism England. We regularly work with tour operators from Europe, America and elsewhere to provide bespoke tour packages allowing overseas travellers to experience the beautiful West Country.

  • How are package prices displayed on our website?

    Prices on our our website are displayed in two ways. The first is on our Resort pages where pricing tables show the from prices for low, mid and high season golf stay and play package rates at golf resort venues.

    The second is on our example tour package pages. There are often 4 prices shown here, two for low season and two for high season. The struck through price typically shows the highest price the tour can be and is often active over weekends in that season. The offer price is typically a mid week price.

    Every tour quote we offer is bespoke and will vary based on a number of factors including the date, availability, group size, room type, time of day for the tee time, etc… Our package pricing is a guide to the cost of the package and is not a firm price. Please enquire for an exact cost.

    We aim to provide as accurate a price as possible and therefore try to avoid using shoulder/mid season pricing or twilight green fee rates when displaying rates. You may find an intermediate price for breaks in months of April & October at certain venues.

  • Why are golf resort prices the same as elsewhere?

    Put simply, all tour operators work from the same contracted rate card when it comes to stay and play golf resort packages. When it comes to golf tours, that is a different matter, but golf resorts are a level playing field.

    If you find a vastly different price, it’s likely you’ve been misquoted and usually this does come back to bite.

    The question this poses is why book a stay and play golf break with Golf South West if you can book direct or with one of the large operators and receive the same price?

    Benjamin Franklin once said “The bitterness of poor quality remains long after
    the sweetness of low price is forgotten.”

    We have a small team so booking through us means you receive a personal service. You are more than just a number to us, we are a tour operator where you will likely get to deal with the same contact throughout the process, who will get to know you and your group and respond efficiently to your queries.

    We know our venues and the people who work there. This ensures a smooth process from initial enquiry to the end of your stay.

    Financially you have an extra layer of protection as your money is securely stored in an independent trust account and is fully insured when it is released to the venue(s) you are visiting.

    We are fortunate to have some exclusive “extras” with selected venues across the South West. We offer 1 in 16 free on every trip AND run an exclusive voucher scheme for our stay and play client bookings.

    We often feel we add further value to our clients when it comes to our bespoke golf tour packages, but you can rest assured that when making a stay and play golf resort booking, Golf South West will offer you an extremely high level of service, financial protection and may even offer you a saving or an exclusive extra!
