Fantastic Course, well worth the trip

A really good course on a perfect weather day. Not too breezy and sun shining. Challenging rough but it should be for a links course. Played on my own and got caught behind 3 4 balls but to be expected really. Bar excellent and food looked good too. Parking could be an issue but I was dropped off and picked up.

A little links gem

Lovely course. Quirky lay out with lots of blind shots. As first time players at the course it was a bit hit and hope at times. But the pro did forewarn us of the quirks and the members were really helpful when they noticed us scratching our heads.

Very Friendly Great Course

This is a beautiful links course in the centre of Bude. The greens are in brilliant condition as is the rest of the course. The staff in the clubhouse are extremely friendly and welcoming . They could possibly do with a couple of signs on some holes as some doglegs are not evident with blind tee shots. Beware of walkers on the course, some of them don't look both ways!

Quirky links course in good condition

To get the best out of this course you need to play it a few times as there are many blind shots on both drives and entries to greens. You also have to be very aware of multiple footpaths across the course. Even in October the greens were good and the course dry. As a 2 ball on a Sunday following various groups of members we found the pace of play very good and were round in 3.5 hours.

Well worth a knock!

Played on a lovely day which helps but really enjoyed this course. Quite a view blind shots but really interesting layout and in very good condition. By no means one of the top courses but for £22 compared to £100 you can’t beat the value for money.

Quirky and interesting

We played on 11th & 13th August. The first round was difficult as we did not know the course the mist came in - when we played the 150 yard par 3 (8th hole) we could not see the green. In addition to the mist there are s few blind shots. The course is also tight in a number of places. The greens were difficult to read but absolutely true and reasonably quick.
On the 2nd visit we were more familiar with the course and it was gloriously sunny with a cooling breeze. The course was more enjoyable and I 3 putted less often.
Overall summary is the course was enjoyable, interesting and a challenge.
The professional staff were very helpful. In the bar we found good beer, food and friendly staff.
I would play the course again.

Addition to my original review - WARNING

This is an additional comment to my previous review as I was stung with a £60 parking fine in the club car park.
When we played on the Tuesday, 11 August I noticed signs about the car park being monitored; however, I didn't see any machines to make a payment nor did the professional mention anything when I signed in.
On the 13th a different person in the pro shop mentioned that I had to enter my car details into a table on a table around the corner - which I did do.
Upon return from our holiday I received a notice of the parking penalty (£60 if I pay within 14 days or £100). My appeal has been rejected.
So my advice is "MAKE SURE YOU ENTER YOUR CAR DETAILS" if you use the club car park.

Sally

Excellent reception staff who described the course and made us very welcome. Play started on time and kept a good place. We followed a roll up of locals so were just able to find the course. Several holes were crisscrossing each other which was very confusing at times. There were also a couple of public footpaths crossing the fairways so play was obviously delayed at times. Blind shots with guides were a common cause for lost balls so quite a challenge for a relative beginner. Sea views enjoyable.

always enjoyable

Game spoilt by the awful weather, which was not forecast. Some bad wet patches, but overall good, green were excellent and fairly fast, for this horrendous wet winter.
Friendly staff and specials board for food, which we happy with, and felt good value.
Have played numerous times before, so appreciate where I should be hitting the ball, with a lot of blind shots to fairways and greens.......I love links golf, so always enjoy my visits here. Worth a visit if you haven’t been before......you may want to play again having got your bearings on the blind holes.

Superb links course

Great course, fantastic greens, everything you want from a true links golf course. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Played the course a few times now gets better every time as it takes a little getting used to. Hidden gem! Highly recommended to everyone.
