West Cornwall

Anticipated Links Experience: 
Mycket pittoresk linksupplevelse. Havsnära upplevelse med korsande järnväg, vilda siktpinnar, tuffa bunkrar, fairway på skrå, opolerade sanddynor, medeltida kyrka och klassiskt linkstorg. En förhållandevis kort bana som man bara måste älska. Ett smycke för en runda med halvset och läderbag.

Best holes:
par3: 15th hole
par4: 11th hole
par5: 12th hole

Worthy of Note: 
Check out the overgrown graveyard behind the 1st green – spooky! A wonderful links crossing between the 5th and 7th hole – quite simply unique. There is a surprsingly powerful ebb and flow around the course.

History:
The oldest course in Cornwall, the club was founded in 1889. The most famous member is “Long” Jim Barnes. He learned to play golf here in Lelant and was assistant pro from 1902-1906. He won the US PGA in 1916 & 1919, the US Open in 1921 and the British Open in 1925.
