Tregena Castle course is under a mile (4 mins) from our front door and is open all the year round to non-residents and has a great 19th hole in the Castle Bar & Brasserie. Working in partnership with other golf courses in Cornwall, Tregenna Castle is the perfect destination for your golfing short break.

The putting green is situated near the main hotel entrance and offers good quality greens for all to improve their putting techniques. Equipment can be hired from the golf shop.

The West Cornwall Golf Club is 1.7 miles away (5 mins). Although not quite measuring 6000 yards the testing quality of West Cornwall lies in the fact that it has no mercy on a bad or timid shot. Invariably played in anything from a light breeze to a force 9 the course has many defences, but attack it and you should then be able to enjoy the 19th hole.
