18 holes 6296 yards. S.S.S. 72. Par 72.
An absolute gem, fantastic layout and scenery, this is rated by a lot of people as the best links course in Cornwall or even the whole of the south west. The greens are particularly good – in true links style they are big and have an enviable reputation for being fast and true.
Perranporth is cliff top links golf at its absolute best. Meandering naturally through the dunes, it is fantastically picturesque, unpredictable and demanding.
Blind shots abound, there are driveable par 4s through narrow dunes, big fairway drops & spectacular views. To help you get round this brilliant James Braid design there are several marker posts and boards perched on top of the dunes.
Virtually every hole is memorable. The first two par fives are amongst the best you’ll play, the short holes are spectacular and there are features galore that you’ll be talking about for a good while afterwards.
If you like pure links golf, this a must-play course. A lot of people want to play it again and again, if only to use the experience gained the first time around from the outcome of some of the blind shots.
