Lanhydrock Golf Club is an eighteen hole parkland course nestling in a mature wooded valley in the heart of Cornwall with a splendid clubhouse where the warmest of welcomes awaits you. It would be foolhardy to underestimate the challenge of this comparatively short course where one can be lulled into a false sense of security by the gently undulating countryside until you are caught out by one of the distinctive Lanhydrock bunkers or intimidated by a lengthy drive over water. It is a very strategic golf course where poor shots will rarely result in total disaster, but where intelligent strokes will be fully rewarded, and where the local rule is TO ENJOY.

2 hours by car from Bristol, Lanhydrock Golf Club is accessible from all parts of the Southwest. 1mile south of Bodmin, with easy access from the B3268 via the A38/A30.

Course Details

Course Name: Lanhydrock Holes: 18 Yardage: 6100 SSS: 70
Awkward stances, the occasional blind shot and sea winds, which can wreak havoc with your long game, may all be part of your expectation of golf in the West Country. Baffled and buffeted you may have been on coast and moorland - time then to be bewitched by Lanhydrock. Play at Lanhydrock can commence from the 1st or 10th tees (both are beside the magnificent clubhouse) but the best place to begin your visit is at the 19th hole. Stand on the clubhouse veranda and drink in the view. Rolling hills and patchwork fields fill the horizon. Stretching out below, amidst a beautiful wooded valley is the golf course; lush undulating fairways, splashes of dazzling white sand and slick, subtly contoured greens framed sometimes by bunkers, sometimes by hazards and nearly always by a splendid mix of trees.
Features holes of the Hamilton Stutt designed course are glorious 6th - hole occupies its own almost hidden corner at Lanhydrock, the picturesque short 11th which has developed a reputation for being something of a BEAST OF BODMIN and the 12th enveloped by Tregullan Moor surrounded by a mass of gnarled, wizened old trees and prickly gorse, demanding accuracy on the fairways only 20 yards wide in party.

    I moved away from Cornwall some years back and haven't played Lanhydrock in a few years. I returned recently (May2000), and was more than pleasantly surprised. The course has always been a little cracker, but now it is a stunner. It is beautifully kept and delightfully situated. The course itself rewards the accurate hitter, length off the tee is useful if accompanied by a little common sense and control, but shorter hitters are not penalised unduly. Having said this, the fantastic par 3 6th (One of the most stunning par 3s I have played) and the short par 4 9th, were both teeing into a stiff (20-30mph) breeze on the day I played making the 170 yard and 180-190 yard carry over the lakes quite difficult for my partner who had to lay up. On the whole anyone travelling down to Cornwall to play would be silly to miss this little gem, especially considering the very reasonable value for summer visitors fee. Lanhydrock just goes to show that you don't need 7000 yards to offer people a challenge. Highly recommended.
