From the club's website:
Designed by Harry Colt, The Championship Course ranks as one of the top links golf courses in the British Isles.
As the proud host of The Brabazon Trophy (2008) and The McGregor Trophy (2012) Trevose guarantees a unique golfing experience, 12 months of the year. Along with the likes of Augusta National, Pine Valley, Sunningdale, Royal Portrush and Muirfield Trevose sits in good company alongside the rest of the 'Colt' family of courses.
As you stand on the intimidating 1st tee, with all 18 holes laid out in front of you the sights and sounds of the Atlantic Ocean will take your breath away. In keeping with most Colt designs the course is set out in two loops of 9 holes. The front 9 holes hug the sand dunes and coastline, offering some spectacular views out to sea. The back 9 holes offer a different, but no less demanding test of golf as you head inland and then back towards the clubhouse. There is only one blind shot and, from the 1st to the 18ththe ocean view provides a constant reminder of your proximity to the sea.
Like all great links courses the difficulty lies in the wind – so beware when the wind blows! No two days are ever the same, and those who are prepared to be more creative with their shot making will be well rewarded. The greens are often wide and the fairways generous, but trouble awaits any errant shots. The rough can be penal in places, and watch out for the carefully crafted bunkers that are strategically placed throughout the course. Come rain or shine, wind or calm Trevose will test every shot in your armoury and every club in your bag!
The Championship Course has four sets of tees offering different levels of difficulty; blue (championship); white (club competitions); yellow (men’s day) and red (ladies day).
Opened in 1925, Trevose is recognised as one of England’s most established golf resorts, thanks in the main to the three generations of Gammon family who have run the property since 1955 and, over the years, have continually invested in the property and its facilities.
Today Trevose offers three links courses; the championship links Main Course designed by renowned golf course architect, Harry Colt, the 9-hole Headland Course and the par-3 Short Course. The club also has a Performance Centre and all the usual practice facilities such as a putting and chipping area and a driving range.
Meanwhile visitors can stay at a variety of 4 and 5-star apartments and chalets, enjoy dining at the Constantine Restaurant in the clubhouse that offers local Cornish cuisine and relax at the outdoor swimming pool and tennis courts.
The resort is well located to a huge number of magnificent beaches (seven within a mile) including Constantine Bay and the popular surfing beach at Newquay, the bustling fishing port of Padstow and the various Cornish locations made famous by the TV series, Poldark.
However it is still the family influence that remains fundamental to Trevose’s unique charm and character. It prides itself on being able to provide a friendly, welcoming escape, with family values running through the veins of the business.
For those wishing to play a number of courses in the south west, Trevose is part of England’s Atlantic Links, a collection of the six premier championship links courses in the region which has firmly established itself as one of the UK’s finest golf tours.
The trail starts in Somerset at Burnham & Berrow at Burnham-on-Sea and on to north Devon, where Saunton offers two courses, East and West, and Royal North Devon, England’s oldest links course. Further down the coast in north Cornwall lies St Enodoc, located at picturesque Rock, and finally to Trevose.
