"Cruden Bay?  Nah.  Ballybunion?  Nope.  Pennard?  No!

It's Perranporth in Cornwall (Braid)."

Paul Turner

"Perranporth makes every other course I've seen or played seem ridiculously over-built."

Rick Schefchik

"There is almost nothing in the world of golf and in the British Isles that prepared me for Perranporth.  Having seen so many quirky golf courses and loved them, this one does indeed make Painswick and Pennard look benign in spots."

Noel Freeman

"I went back to Perranporth recently and was flabbergasted at the outrageous nature of the design.  I know see where RTJ got his ideas for The Cashen, only Braid didn't have to push dirt about.  The conditions were sporty (or is that spotty?) with the wind out of the east - making for a crazy day of golf.  Perranporth makes some sense with a normal wind, put all those short par 4s downwind and all hell can break lose.  An old friend who was injured walked the course with me and barely uttered a word about the design the whole way round.  His eyes told me all that I needed to know. "

Sean Arble

The course is par 72, 6296 yards. From looking at Google Earth it is clear that they have added tees to increase the yardage. In the case of the 10th tee, it appears you have a crossing of the 1st fairway. In another case, the extension causes you to hit your tee shot across the previous green.

Another tour is at http://www.golfclubatlas.com/forum/index.php/topic,59279.0.html. There is a lot of commentary on the course there. I have added the pictures from there to this tour.

That's because it's about as far away from Cruden Bay as one can be in the British Isles

Like to again, great course-played in a gale with sleet and sun.
Nice part of the world.
amazing # of Braid courses that I've really liked-or maybe it's the caravans.

In that case, be sure to play Brora & Golspie some day. ;)
No Braid at nearby Royal Dornoch, but plenty of mobile homes.

I am going to use the elevation profile from Google Earth with this tour. Unfortunately, it has some glitches, as every profile has a discontinuous change in elevation.

Route1 by Garland Bayley, on Flickr

"Wicked sloping green on 1st: 380 yds downhill, right-left canted fairway." Paul Turner

Perranporth1 on Flickr

"The great thing about P-porth is you realize the sportyness of the course right from the get go.  The fairway at the first slopes right to left like the Titanic before it went down and during the summer I wonder how you hold the fairway.  The green is no bargain either and falls away from you." Noel Freeman

"A very open and inspiring tee shot down the hill and towards the town of Perranporth. Unless the wind is in the player's face, in which case it can be a strenous opener." Ulrich Mayring

"Most holes have a number sign...so many blind shots, nobody knows where the hell they are!" Paul Turner

on Flickr

on Flickr

"Double hollow green at 2nd" Paul Turner

on Flickr

"The 2nd hole is in my opinion the craziest on the course and should be a compendium of ALL WORLD quirky holes.  The first shot is blind over the dunes and I reckon you need to hit a high cut about 270ish.  If you can hit it near 300 you'll have a shot at seeing the green. If not, then you have
another blind shot that must be hit with a draw to the green over another sand hill.. And the green?  As Paul Turner stated, it is double hollowed and looks right out of NGLA!  One of the best greens I've seen in the United Kingdom." Noel Freeman

"Probably the best hole on the course, this par 5 starts with ideally a left-to-right curving drive towards the signage." Ulrich Mayring

"The second shot is blind for most players and for the first time the question arises on which side of the marker sign it would be best to miss." Ulrich Mayring

"It turns out the left side is bad unless the dunes can be carried. There is more room to the right, although the approach to the green would be blind." Ulrich Mayring

"The green comes into view after making another 90 turn after the dunes. The approach looks straightforward from here, but the green contours are to be reckoned with." Ulrich Mayring

"One of Perranporth's undulated greens. This one has two punchbowl-like dents, that will collect any nearly-perfect ball that tries to get to the back plateau." Ulrich Mayring

"the crazy 2nd, but in truth no more crazy than about half dozen other holes.  On the second shot the direct line to the green is left of the markers, but how much carry is there?  For that matter, how far does one hit a lay-up?" Sean Arble

on Flickr

What does it matter if the poor player can putt all the way from tee to green, provided that he has to zigzag so frequently that he takes six or seven putts to reach it?     --Alistair Mackenzie--

"Approach to pulpit green at 3rd (lots of these)" Paul Turner

on Flickr

"The 3rd has one of the best skyline greens on the course, but don't worry you still have about 10 more after you finish that hole.  It very much reminded me of the approach to Ballybunion #2.  It looks like you can never hit a ball that high to hold the green, it is like approaching a green in heaven." Noel Freeman

"Driving it too far is not a good idea on this hole, as the approach will get blinder and blinder due to the imposing dunes." Ulrich Mayring

"You are not hallucinating.  This is the 3rd. It looks a doddle to drive to the upper flats...." Sean Arble

"Looking back." Paul Turner

"Paul Turner, that slack jawed John Lennon lookalike, is too proud to admit it but he almost aced the 4th hole knocking it to 3 inches from 200 yards with a 1 iron-- where is Lee Trevino?- cause only G-d and Paul Turner can hit that club.. We never saw it though as the hole is semi blind and
Paul figured it had redannish qualities which it did and he hit the softest draw with a 1 iron I'll ever see." Noel Freeman

"Where is the 4th and how in the hell is one meant to hit the green?  We have gone from all out smash mouth golf to the ultimate in pussy footing.  This ball ache one-shotter is probably best played as ball ache two-shotter." Sean Arble

Route14 by Garland Bayley, on Flickr

"14th, turning left.  395 yard uphill." Paul Turner

on Flickr

"14th green." Paul Turner

on Flickr

"The 14th was when I realized Paul Turner was a sick man, a spiteful man!  He hit a hook that went over a sand hill and yet somehow despite being 50 yards left wound up in the middle of the fairway.  Yes, the middle of the fairway for a hole that asked for a fade.  Now, I don't know what divine power was in control here, I mean I prayed at the Church of St. Enodoc earlier that day for my golf game was shite and was rewarded by an amazing eagle at the 16th at St.Enodoc but this was spectacular.  Paul Turner can tell the story but there was someone listening to me in that heavenly church on hallowed turf." Noel Freeman

"According to the hole name this is Braid's best. The drive has to be squeezed between dunes and a sheer drop-off to the right." Ulrich Mayring

"The approach is long and to a small target. Many too cute shots end up on the false front, which seems to enable, but will actually subvert any fancy ground-game options." Ulrich Mayring
