Mansfield Boys On Tour

Stunning views of the bay and Sea
Interesting collection of holes
Covid raised holes could be better as they were ceramic/pot only an inch below the surface which caused a few putts to bounce out. Suggest sponge hole inserts at least a ball depth below to avoid bounce outs
Fantastic looking course well worth playing, very good test for your golf game

Great greens

Played just after lockdown 3, the course was in super condition particularly the greens which were outstanding. Tees could do with a bit of work, but on the whole a great day out.

Fantastic course

The course was great condition well layed out and beautiful scenery the course it's self is challenging enough to be enjoyable but not too tough. Plenty of free parking, nice club house which is reasonably priced and a well stocked pro shop. The only thing I would say is the pro didn't seem very chatty but that's not a major issue. There is plenty of practice space and I would happily book another round there if I was in the area again

Fabulous

I have played a lot of golf courses over the years including some of the highest ranked in Europe but this is the one I would pick if I could only choose one to play, can’t really say much more than that. Thank you Carlton Bay

Beautifully presented course

The course was in fabulous condition and the greens ran fair and true even with a heavy downpour of rain. Facilities on site are good and still managed to book a buggy last minute albeit wouldn’t recommend you do that ! The only slight criticism is that there are some holes with blind tee shots and the course would benefit from marker posts in the fairway on some holes. Other than that it was fab!

Played on a hot deal for £18 ...good value

Great day, friendly pro spoken to on arrival. Putting green and net out of order due to covid.....great course, with good fast greens. If you haven’t played before then well worth the visit.

Seaside course

Played as part of a 2 day golfing trip to Cornwall. Best view from the first tee I've seen for a long while. Virtually had the course to ourselves for the afternoon. The greens were good with a few challenging undulations. We did note that there seemed to be few flat fairways. Great course in good condition and would certainly recommend a visit.

Stunning views and challenging course

We chose to play this course during our 2week stay in Cornwall, stunning views over the English Channel, back 9 more challenging that the front 9. Course in great condition, good shots rewarded and bad shots punished as they should be. Oh and an interesting 9th hole. Overall really enjoyed our round. Would recommend

Stunning Views!!

Lovely course with incredible views over the coastline! Lots of interesting holes with wide fairways but plenty of well placed hazards and blind shots into greens to keep it a good challenge. Also a nice little finish as you head in land to the last few holes.

Only very slight negative was the greens which had a bit too much grass on in places and we’re a bit slow but it had been raining heavily the day before.
