Course overview

Formerly the Old Course, this layout has undergone a major refurbishment in recent times and is now a fantastic complement to the Championship Nicklaus. It features a great mix of holes, the pick being the sensational par-3 14th.

Originally designed and set out by J Hamilton Stutt in 1976, the course played host to the Benson & Hedges International Open in 1979, followed by the Tournament Players Championship and the Weetabix Ladies British Open.

With the arrival of the Jack Nicklaus Signature Course in 1988, the Kernow course was somewhat overshadowed, until in 2008 it was completely redeveloped, incorporating 9 of the original holes, extended and modernised, along with nine exciting new holes. With wider fairways, larger greens and spectacular views, the Kernow course is a wonderful and more friendly complement to the Jack Nicklaus Signature Course.
