Golf holidays in Cornwall
If you are looking for accommodation for golf breaks in Sennen, Cornwall, then the Vellandreath Cornish Cottages are a superb option. They offer a great base from which to play some of the best golf courses in Cornwall. A short drive from Vellandreath and you can find some beautiful, iconic Cornish golf courses where you can enjoy a memorable round of golf and, in some cases, a real golfing challenge. And when you’re finished you can come back to a traditional Cornish cottage in an idyllic location for a little after round relaxation. Cook in our rustic farmhouse kitchens or enjoy one of the fantastic restaurants or bars in and around Sennen.
If you choose a Vellandreath cottage for your golf break in then you will have access to three of the very best golf courses in the West Country.
A short drive from Sennen is the Cape Cornwall golf course in St Just. A beautiful and challenging golf course overlooking the sea, with some of the toughest holes you will ever swing a club at! The facilities at this course are fantastic and the rates are very favourable too.
Walking the Cape Cornwall golf course you could easily be forgiven for thinking that it was one of the oldest golf courses in England. Yet it was only designed in 1990 by Bob Hamilton, who also designed courses in Scotland and Singapore. It is a truly natural course, ranging over both farmland and cliff tops and presents the golfer with a mix of challenging holes, and stunning views. ‘Challenging’ is indeed the most often used word when golfers return, especially on windy days!
Without doubt, Cape Cornwall should be on every golfer's bucket list. Once ticked-off you’ll want to come back again and again. It’s a par 69 challenge, cliff tops, undulating fairways, dry-stone walls – known locally as Cornish hedges – and even ancient mine-shafts to negotiate! The course is open and playable 364 days a year.
Mullion Golf Course
If you take the old St Ives road from St Just, you will find the fantastic West Cornwall Golf Club. Steeped in tradition and located on the outskirts of the popular holiday destination, St Ives, this course overlooks the beautiful beaches of Hayle and provides a fantastic experience to golfers of all standards.
Another picturesque course worth visiting is Mullion Golf Club on the Lizard. Great views, challenging holes and great value for money, this course offers everything that is great about golf breaks in Cornwall.
Praa Sands Golf Club is a deceptively challenging course with glorious views over the wide expanse of Mounts Bay.
West Golf Cornwall Club
West Golf Cornwall Club is the oldest existing course in Cornwall, situated overlooking St Ives Bay and Hayle Estuary with superb views.
For something more light-hearted, Penwith Pitch and Putt offers an 18 hole Crazy Golf course, a par 3 12 hole Pitch and Putt course and a 9 hole Football Golf course.
So if golf is your game but you want to experience traditional Cornish living in a beautiful setting in-between your golf days, then a golf break in Sennen, Cornwall will cater for your every need.
