• Overview

    The Falcon Hotel, Bude

    Our West Country Golf Tour is based at the Falcon Hotel, established in 1798 and the oldest coaching hotel in North Cornwall.  For seven generations the Brendon Family, and their loyal staff, have provided ‘The Warmest Welcome in the West’.  Overlooking the Bude Canal and only a short walk to the town centre and the stunning sandy beaches, the hotel offers one of the finest settings of any hotel on the North Cornwall coast.  All rooms are luxuriously furnished with spacious, modern bathrooms and equipped with the latest facilities including free wi-fi, Sky Sports & Freeview TV.  We will take dinner in either the Lord Tennyson Restaurant or in the Coachman’s Bar & Grill.  Both menus have been inspired by Peter Gorton, Master Chef of Great Britain, in collaboration with the hotels’ chefs.

    Royal North Devon Golf Club

    A golfing pilgrimage to Royal North Devon Golf Club, England’s oldest links course, is a must for anyone interested in the history of golf.  The course, still on its original site, is like taking a step back in time to see how golf was played a hundred years ago.  The course however stands the test of time and is still a great test for any standard of golfer.  When we visit the Club, we must make sure that we spend some time looking around the Clubhouse. The memorabilia and history found in the Museum is rivalled only by that found in the Royal & Ancient Club House of St Andrews.

    Bowood Park Golf Club

    Bowood Park Golf Club is set in 230 acres of rolling hills and woodlands, which were once the Deer Park of the legendary Black Prince.  Regarded as one of the leading parkland golf courses in the South West of England, along with being a coveted winner of the Golf Monthly Gold Course Award, the course boasts U.S.G.A. specification greens providing year round golf.  The course is suitable for all abilities due to the careful design strategy and provides a very warm Cornish welcome from the professional staff in every department.

    Bude & North Cornwall Golf Club

    Situated in the centre of town, the Bude & North Cornwall Golf Club provides 18 holes of great links golf.  The natural all-weather fairways and greens are rarely unplayable.  With tight lies and uneven stances on the close-cropped undulating fairways, the course presents a super and enjoyable challenge.  The greens have beautiful quick surfaces, with both severe and subtle borrows, which will have us thinking throughout the round.

    Perranporth Golf Club

    Perranporth Golf Course is one of the finest links courses in the South West, and also boasts spectacular panoramic views over Perranporth beach and the Atlantic Ocean beyond.  With the stunning views over the sea and the extensive golden sands below, few courses are better placed than this.  We will need to pause for a moment on the 5th and 14th tees and take in the truly spectacular scenery.  Taking advantage of the natural contours of the landscape means that James Braid, the course designer, was successful in creating each hole with its own individual demands and character. Not only this, but the greens which are fast and absolutely true, have the reputation for being amongst the best in the South West.  At 6,296 yards this exciting par 72 is a challenge for both high and low handicappers.

    Saunton Golf Club – East Course

    The wonderful Saunton Golf Club East Course has played host to many major national and international championships during its 110-year history.  A completely natural layout set amidst the spectacular sand hills of Braunton Burrows, the East Course provides a peaceful environment with only the sound of the sea for company.  It also provides a great test of golf for all standards.  Nick Faldo has been one of its many fans since playing here as a boy.  To quote his own words, “I’ve no doubt that if the East Course were located on the coast of Lancashire or Kent it would have hosted an Open Championship by now”.
