Cornwall’s southern coastal gem where history, challenge, and scenery converge

Nestled deep in southern Cornwall on the rugged cliff tops of the Lizard Peninsula lies Mullion Golf Club, a true testament to the beauty and challenge of links golf. This course, though not the lengthiest, offers an experience unparalleled in setting and condition. Overlooking the serene Mounts Bay, the historic Gunwalloe Church, and the adjacent pristine beaches, every round at Mullion becomes a rendezvous with nature.

But the beauty of the location doesn’t mean the course is without its challenges. The winds, ever-present and ever-changing, demand precision and strategy. Each hole, with its unique layout, offers both novices and seasoned golfers an opportunity to test their skills. The ravine at the scenic 10th hole and the cliff-edge tee at the 11th are just a couple of examples of the course’s thrilling challenges. Yet, amidst these challenges, the consistent quality of the greens ensures a fair game throughout the year.

Founded in 1895, Mullion’s journey over the years mirrors the resilience of the proverbial phoenix. From near extinction to being the venue for the celebrated 1966 exhibition match featuring legends like Peter Alliss and Dai Rees, the club’s rich history only adds to its charm. William Sich, the visionary behind the early years of Mullion, is credited with its iconic design. His legacy is evident in every corner of the course, from the enchanting holes at Gunwalloe Cove to the warm spot at the 17th tee, often dubbed the warmest spot in England.

For those considering a golf tour in Cornwall, Mullion stands out not just for its spectacular location but also for its unwavering quality. Despite being in one of England’s most exposed locations, the course rarely closes due to bad weather. Whilst many are first to blame a poor putt on the conditions, at Mullion, we’re afraid it’s all down to the golfer.

While Cornwall offers a plethora of links options, Mullion Golf Club, with its rich history, challenging design, and breathtaking setting, is undoubtedly worth the detour. If you’re planning a golfing getaway in the south west of England, make sure Mullion is on your itinerary. Here it’s not just a game; it’s an experience.

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. Please note a £25 admin fee will be applied for changes inside 6 weeks.

  • 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 most trips AND run an exclusive credit system to reward repeat bookers.

    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!
