A genuine links gem set on a glorious cliff-top overlooking the Atlantic Ocean

Perched atop the dramatic cliffs overlooking Perranporth’s expansive beaches, Perranporth Golf Club is a masterpiece of links golf, meticulously crafted by the renowned architect James Braid. Celebrated as one of the top 100 courses in the UK, it stands as a premier golfing destination in the South West, offering an unforgettable challenge to golfers of every level.

Though historically overshadowed by its more famous Atlantic neighbours, Trevose and St Enodoc, Perranporth has emerged from their shadows to be recognised as the South West’s hidden gem. Its recent rise to the 3rd rank in Cornwall and 62nd in England is a testament to its exceptional design and the captivating golfing experience it provides.

Perranporth Golf Club’s unique landscape, marked by natural contours and undulating fairways, ensures that each of its 6296 yards and 72 pars delivers a distinct challenge. Coupled with lightning-fast greens and breathtaking scenic views, the course demands strategic play and rewards golfers with an exhilarating round. Its proximity to Padstow, Newquay, and Truro makes it an essential visit for anyone venturing into Cornwall.

For those planning a golfing retreat, a range of accommodation options are available to suit every taste and budget. Whether you choose to stay in a Newquay hotel, on-site at Perranporth, within the luxury of Gwel an Mor Lodges, or in the historic city of Truro, your golf break is sure to be an unforgettable experience, with Perranporth Golf Club as the highlight of your journey.

The South West’s finest and World top 100 course

Located on the northern Cornish coast, St Enodoc Golf Club is the #1 golf course in Cornwall and a true bucket list course for the discerning golfer. The links course is officially ranked as the 74th best golf course in the World, 29th in the UK, and 10th in England. Situated on the north Cornish coast, it boasts spectacular views overlooking the River Camel and outwards into the Atlantic Ocean.

St Enodoc Golf Club is steeped in rich history, dating back to the late 19th century, and has hosted a number of prestigious events including the English Men’s Amateur in 1999 and 2008 and the corresponding women’s championship in 2018. It has also been a regular host of the prestigious West of England Championship over the years. The course was originally designed by James Braid, a five-time Open Champion, and has undergone several renovations and upgrades over the years to maintain its status as one of the premier golf courses in the world.

Courage, accuracy and concentration are a must if players want to make a good score. The latter can, however, prove a little tricky as you look out across the stunning Camel Estuary at Padstow and the Atlantic Ocean from your perfectly manicured location.

A course does not make it firmly into the World top 100 list without a number of notable holes. We could spend all day talking through the number of fantastic holes at St Enodoc, but we’ll save you some surprises for the round. That said, a few that are certainly worth highlighting.

Ask anyone about St Enodoc and they will immediately reference the 6th. It’s the one that sticks in the mind as 100 yards from the green you must navigate the largest “bunker” you are ever likely to see. This 75-foot giant dune is aptly named the Himalayas and also gives its name to the hole itself.

As you turn for the back 9, number 10 is a marmite hole for many. Personally a big fan of the tight par 4 which has a bank on the right, a snaking fairway, plus water and out-of-bounds down the left. If that isn’t enough, the green slopes from left to right and front to back making holding your approach a challenge. All of this is set against the backdrop of the famous John Betjeman church for which St Enodoc is so indelibly associated.

One final mention must go to the dramatic card wrecker of a par 5 which is the 16th. As you head for home, this 560-yard par 5 runs along the camel estuary with views of Padstow to your right… along with the out-of-bounds. The tiered green is tricky to find with bunkers and dunes left and no mans land right.

St Enodoc Golf Club is easily accessible from several major towns and cities in Cornwall, including Padstow, Newquay, Bude, Truro, Bodmin, Saltash, and Launceston. And, if you are looking for more golf during your trip, the club is only a short distance from another great course in Trevose Golf Club.

If you are planning a golf trip to St Enodoc, there are several accommodation options nearby. The Point at Polzeath offers contemporary apartments with stunning views of the ocean, while St Enodoc Hotel provides luxurious accommodation and fine dining in a beautiful setting. And for those who prefer a more traditional experience, the newly refurbished Oystercatcher, owned by St Austell Brewery, offers comfortable rooms and a warm Cornish welcome. If you’re planning to play both St Enodoc and Trevose during your time in Cornwall, the Molesworth Arms could be the best base for you.

Drop us a line with your requirements for your next Cornish golf trip and we’ll pull together a bespoke quote for you and your group to come and experience this great county and this magnificent World ranked golf course.

Perranporth Golf Lodges

A top 100 links course with stunning cliff-top lodges located in the centre of the course and a short walk to the beach!

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 Southwest’s foremost golfing destinations.

Perranporth Golf Club is beautifully designed links which make full use of natural contours & dunes. There are no less than 16 marker posts across the course meaning a course planner for your first visit is advisable!

This 6,300 yard gem, with its sand based undulating fairways, wonderful greens and picturesque backdrops, provide an exciting, and year round, experience to members and visitors.

Perranporth is one of the few links courses in England to host accommodation on-site. A venue perfect not just for a stay and play golf break, but also as a base for an Atlantic coastal golf tour taking in the likes of West Cornwall, Mullion, Newquay, Trevose and St Enodoc to name but a few.

The views from your lodge are spectacular. Not only this, but you are a short walk down Budnic Hill to the town and beach. Famed for its lively beach bar “The Watering Hole”.

The local area

Perranporth Golf Club is spectacularly situated on the cliffs overlooking Perran Bay in Cornwall, England. The club is located in the town of Perranporth, which is well-known for its stunning, expansive beach that stretches for miles and is a popular spot for both tourists and locals alike.

The golf club itself takes advantage of its unique coastal location by offering breathtaking panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean. This setting not only enhances the golfing experience with stunning vistas but also presents unique challenges to golfers due to the prevailing winds and natural dune landscape that are characteristic of true links courses.

Perranporth is approximately a 30-minute drive from Newquay, making it easily accessible for visitors staying in the area. The journey between Newquay and Perranporth provides scenic routes along the Cornish coast, offering glimpses of the rugged shoreline and the lush countryside.

For those traveling to the golf club, it’s relatively straightforward to access from major routes. The A3075 directly connects to Newquay and other major roads, which link to the wider motorway network in Cornwall and beyond, providing good connectivity for those coming from various parts of the UK.

    View the PTS brochure for more information on the protection this affords you as a client of Golf South West.

  • 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!
