Overview

Originally designed by five times Open Winner, James Braid, this challenging 9 hole/18 tee golf course is set in mature parkland with the first tee a few paces from the hotel's golf bag room. The seventh on this interesting course was until recently the longest Par 5 in the county and the ninth green, 'The Flower Bowl' is one of the finest short holes in Cornwall. Climatic conditions are so mild that the course plays exceptionally well all year round. Golf is inclusive for guests staying at the Budock Vean Hotel Green Fees for Day Visitors Weekdays - Adults £25 per day and Juniors £15 per day for an 18 hole round. Adults can play a 9 hole round on weekdays only for £16.00. Weekends and Bank Holidays - Adults £30 per day and Juniors £20 per day for an 18 hole round. Students - 9 holes for £10 and 18 holes for £18 on presentation of your student ID card at the Golf Shop or Bar.

We love to play this course after breakfast and in the evening. The distances are not the problem, it s the greens and the the little hilly design.

A challenging golf course with 18 tees and 9 holes. The course was immaculate and much hard work had been put into maintaining the fairways and greens. Well run by Tony.

Nicely laid out course with plenty of challenges and interesting holes. We played in December so course was not at its best in winter conditions.

A 9 hole course where you can play 18 holes as there are two lots of tee points. One of the longest par 5's in Cornwall & the 5th par hole is extremely difficult to get a par.

The Budock Vean Golf course is excellent for practice purposes with an extremely long par 5 for the 7th hole & the 5th hole is one of the most difficult par 4 holes in Cornwall.
