Perranporth Golf Club: Perhaps not one of England's best known links golf courses, but surely one of its most scenic. The sand dunes here at Perranporth are impressive, creating a wonderfully undulating layout that will demand your best quality shot making from the tee and as you approach the many elevated greens.
The layout at Perranporth includes quite a few shortish par-4s and not too many bunkers. An inviting proposition you may think. But there are several blind shots to make on the way round, so playing to your handicap may not be a realistic target, especially on a first outing here.
From the many scenic vantage points on this absorbing James Braid layout, you'll enjoy views out to sea, down into Perranporth village and across its impressive and expansive beach. Inland there are fine views onto the rolling Cornish countryside. The splendid lookout from the 14th tee is one to savour.
