St Helen's Bay Golf Resort

3-star: Good course – an enjoyable test for your game.

Est. 1993

St Helen's Bay Golf Resort: With an 18-hole championship golf course and an additional nine-hole pay&play course, St Helen's is set-up to challenge and test the full array of golfers' abilities. The six closing holes on the championship course are closest to the shore, laid out in a classic links environment, with the show-stealing par-3 17th and short par-4 18th running directly alongside the beach. Not only does this guarantee a dramatic finish to your round (especially if you are battling away in a tight Match Play), but also ensures you'll enjoy invigorating and possibly windy views onto the Bay and across to the Tusker Rock lighthouse station. The other section of the course takes you more inland where the terrain changes from seaside links into something more akin to open parkland golf, with several water features, ancient stone walls, even more ancient towers and many maturing trees lining your way.

Bernhard Langer: at age 64, Langer collected a record sixth Charles Schwab Cup, the only player to have won the season-long points chase more than twice. He also topped the PGA Tour Champions money-list for the 11th time out of a possible 13 since 2008.

Carlota Ciganda: the five-time Solheim Cup star was delighted to record a fourth Ladies European Tour win in her home national championship, the Ladies Spanish Open.
