Cornwall: In the footsteps of giants (Part 2)

This is a taxing walking course, with the opening stretch among the toughest in the area. Strong golfers will love it, us mere mortals need to grind through the first four holes then enjoy what is a magnificent test of golf. Bring plenty of balls, and allow enough time to sample the fare in the large and well maintained clubhouse.

For those wanting to spend more time in Cornwall, there are numerous tracks around worth visiting with the James Braid links at Perranporth a must-see. Also, track down the delicious Padstow Windjammer - another fantastic local beer.
