"Golf World" magazine has recently published it's list of the Top 100 golf courses in England and we are very proud to have been confirmed in the top 10 and ranked #6. The rankings are determined by a panel of independent assessors and who take into account various factors such as design, presentation, setting, memorability etc. In a separate set of listings our course is ranked #1 for Memorability and #2 for Setting. Our partners in the Atlantic Links group are all well ranked in this survey, whilst it is pleasing to note also other Cornish courses ranked in the Top100.
Here is what the "Golf World" magazine assessors think of St Enodoc -
"What is the West Country's finest golf course? Burnham and Berrow, Saunton East and Perranporth can all present a justifiable claim but for us the honours go to St. Enodoc. Playing over as eccentric and exaggerated piece of links golfing terrain as you are likely to find anywhere on the planet, a round of golf at the James Braid designed Church Course is a full scale assault on your senses.
Finding the words to articulately describe the Church's character can be as daunting and frustrating a task as trying to hit some of it's more cambered fairways in one of the seemingly ever present cross winds. The Church combines the eccentricity of Prestwick, the rugged simplicity of Royal St. Georges and the imposing dune-scape of say, a hillside or Royal Birkdale in one scintillating package. Gargantuan dunes covered in willowy sea grasses house roller coaster fairways that seemingly obey no rules. Here you have blind shots, plateau greens, rippled fairways, cavernous bunkers, incredible views over the Camel Estuary and many more surprises.
The club recently embarked on a renovation program that has seen the expansion of several tees, the reshaping of several fairways and a reworking of the club's famous 10th hole, where scrubland has been removed and a stream widened to improve aesthetics."
