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.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
Bookings not taken, but check ahead to ensure tee-time availability, especially at weekends.
Credit cards accepted. Contact club for full details, discounts, packages, etc. [Last updated: 2020].
Players generally walk this course. Golf carts available for hire (best to book in advance).
In the 19th century Perranporth was a tin mining village. It is now a family seaside resort with miles of unspoilt beach attracting surfers, sunbathers and yachters. The town is also known for holding the Lowender Peran Folk Festival in October.
2019 Golf World Rating: 67th best course in England.

Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
