When I visited West Cornwall to photograph it I was advised by the secretary to wear a safety helmet, which I did. But I enjoyed playing it, and, on reflection, I don't think there were many people out, so didn't feel threatened.

I actually did play West Cornwall. I loved it and would put it personally above Bude & N Cornwall. I won't disagree with Garland's comment about there being some serious danger with regards to stray balls. I'd say the worst part would starting at the 3rd I think it was. A blind shot along the church and graveyard with the other fairway running right into you almost. To me that was a potentially dangerous stretch.


I will add I played at 7 am and was trying to cram in a quick visit on a 54 hole day. I'll add the course was in sublime condition and a nice walk. To give an indication how nice, I made my 9 am tee time at Perranporth. (a 30 min drive).


West Cornwall was the surprise of my trip for sure.


But no, I didn't find it better than Perranporth for the record. It's short quirky, old school, graveyard fun. How many courses have you every played that play along an ancient graveyard and in such a cool setting. Ballybunion Old is the only other one that I can think of.

I agree, Perranporth is the pick of itself, West Cornwall and Bude.  But I am in the camp of P'porth being far better than folks usually say.  If TOC takes 25 games to get a grip, then P'porth takes 50.  Whats good for the goose is good for the gander!

New plays planned for 2024: Fraserburgh, Ashridge, Gog Magog Old & Cruden Bay St Olaf

I thought Bude was a charmer....


... At this point in time, I think it may have a better set of holes than Parrenporth.


Will return later to expand.
