Cornwall - Carlyon Bay Golf Club

A magical combination of manicured fairways and captivating scenery

The 6,400-yard, par 72, Championship Course at Carlyon Bay Golf Club is a fabulous combination of manicured fairways and greens set in captivating scenery. In fact, as you stand at the first tee and gaze out across the cliffs and down to the sunlight sparkling on the sea below, you’ll find it hard not to feel that all is right with the world.

The majority of the golf course boasts similarly breath-taking views across St Austell Bay, with the challenging opening 10 holes being played right along stunning Cornish cliff-top, before winding into parkland for the back stretch.

There’s an impressive 6 acres of practice grounds, including 2 putting greens and a 9-hole approach course, which is great for beginners or for a pre-round warm up.

The Carlyon Bay Golf Club has quite the history; it’s hosted a fair few prestigious competitions and famous faces in the past. Over 100 years ago, it was a popular place to play for Edward VIII (then Prince of Wales). But the course still pulls in some famous faces today, competing in the various Pro Ams and competitions that are held at the club throughout the year.

Many of the club's trophies, which are still competed for year on year are steeped in history, and the original trophies are still proudly displayed here in our clubhouse.
Designed in 1912 the golf course has remained true to its traditions, whilst consistently striving to improve wherever possible.

You can hire any extra equipment you need from the pro shop or book yourself some expert golf tuition with the club pro to hone your game. And, after a round, there’s no better way to analyse your game than with a drink or quick bite at the club house bar and restaurant.
