Golf and Bridge break

A challenging golf course with 18 tees and 9 holes. The course was immaculate and much hard work had been put into maintaining the fairways and greens. Well run by Tony.

Nicely laid out course with plenty of challenges and interesting holes. We played in December so course was not at its best in winter conditions.

A 9 hole course where you can play 18 holes as there are two lots of tee points. One of the longest par 5's in Cornwall & the 5th par hole is extremely difficult to get a par.

Nice course, beautiful views over the Helford River, quite hilly but very well kept fairways and greens. Good clubhouse.

The extensive grounds and golf course, walks to the foreshore of Port Navas Creek and all the hotel facilities entranced our guests. Peter Hodson wishes he`d been with us.

The Budock Vean Golf course is excellent for practice purposes with an extremely long par 5 for the 7th hole & the 5th hole is one of the most difficult par 4 holes in Cornwall.
