St Enodoc Holywell Course benefits from renovations

Following two seasons of course renovations and improvements, St Enodoc Golf Club’s Holywell Course provides a fun round with some challenging holes. Shorter in length and with easier carries than the main Church Course, the 4,082-yard Holywell offers an enjoyable round for golfers of every level for a green fee of just £25.

The modest green fee includes access to this historic Cornish golf club, founded in 1890 and its extensive practice facilities which comprise a driving range complete with a target green and covered bay facility, two putting greens, a short game practice area and two PGA coaching professionals.

In the last two years greater resources than ever before have been employed over the club’s secondary course with much of the greenkeepers’ time spent renewing tees, manicuring bunkers and upgrading the overall presentation of the course to a level enjoyed on the club’s 6,547-yard Church Course designed by James Braid.

Today’s first nine of the Holywell were originally designed by Braid as well and still offer some real character holes. In 1982 additional land was acquired in order to extend the course to the full 18 holes it is now. Since then some further modifications and the addition of some bunkers were made to give the current layout.

Tuck Clagett, manager of St Enodoc commented, “Now that the Holywell is in the greatest shape it’s ever been, it makes for a thoroughly enjoyable round over a course that is much quieter and less pressurised than our main course. It’s a great little track for higher handicappers and youngsters who are just starting to get a feel for the game and for the older generation who can find the long Church Course with its stiff rough rather difficult and intimidating.”
