Great Golf Media bring you the "TOP 5 SOUTH OF ENGLAND COURSES" to add to your must play list for 2016.
We have selected locations that give the golfer a varied selection, from heathland, dramatic coastline, rolling countryside and city skyline.
St Enodoc was designed by James Braid. Located on the North Cornwall coast, it overlooks the Camel Estuary, with Padstow on the far side and to the North, the Atlantic. The location on the high sand dunes is ideal for golf combined with the stunning sea views.
St Enodoc consists of two courses; the Church course is a James Braid designed Championship course which has hosted the English County Finals and the English Women's Amateur Championship. The Holywell course is shorter but by no means less impressive and perfect for those wanting slightly less of a challenge.
