Things To Do

St Enodoc Golf Club, Rock, Wadebridge

St Enodoc Golf Club is situated in one of the driest parishes in Cornwall and being on sand is ideal for golf twelve months of the year; even in the depths of winter frost is a rarity thanks to the warm Gulf Stream climate. The area is renowned as a holiday resort and with the advent of the motorway network and the upgrading of the A30 is only about 4 hours drive from London.

St Enodoc Golf Club has two courses; the Church course which is designed by James Braid, an excellent Championship course which in September 2005 the club hosted the English County Finals and the shorter Holywell course which is an ideal course for those wanting slightly less of a challenge.

The St Enodoc Golf Club consists of a practice ground, two putting greens and an excellent clubhouse complete with bars and restaurant.
