One of Cornwall's finest links courses
"If you like your links golf a little bit on the extreme side (I do) then you will love Perranporth. It not only has a ‘wow’ factor, it has several of them!
It’s crazy, it’s radical, it’s wild, it’s raw, it’s eccentric, it’s indulgent, it’s fun, it’s frenzied, it’s frantic, it’s quirky and it’s exhilarating. Above all else… it’s a truly amazing golfing experience.
However, for all its spirit of adventure please don’t think this isn’t a serious golf course for one moment though. The course embodies so many things that are good about links golf; strategy and options abound.
Not only is Perranporth bursting with life it is often a reflection of life. At times you may be in the lap of the gods after you have struck your ball; not everything you get is deserved and sometimes it works the other way round. But in many ways that is the essence of links golf, the essence of life also. "

"I have good English golfing buddies here and, as they went for a trip in Cornwall I told them not to miss Perranporth.
Please convey this quote to the people in charge of the course:
"René, your Perranporth is a geological marvel and a course I wish to play again as quickly as possible. I got 4 pars! But lost quite a few balls in the rough ahead of tee-boxes. The views are splendid and the course certainly the equal of allegedly more illustrious courses further up the coast. You are lucky to have played there on a regular basis and I’m jealous indeed.
I think Perranporth is amazing and I can't wait to play it again. A truly memorable experience and less than half the cost of Enodoc!"

"My home course is a links so I am used to playing in the wind and the unexpected bounce here and there. So it started off friendly with the internet booking and the pro in the shop. Like most new courses you play, your never quite sure which way to go for the next tee, but thankfully a few signs plus trolley tracks and yardage cart make it pretty straightforward. The pro warned me about the blond shots, there are quite a few either from the tee or on the course. Theres a fair bit of walking up and down, my Fitbit measured 105 flights of stairs, I walked it with a trolley, but it was a cool day, on a hot day a trolley could be advisable, plus I liked the water fountains around the course. I can be over critical of links course and always compare it to my own course, this is a nice track to be enjoyed, don’t force it and you will be rewarded, but anything short or wide will be punished, I will definitely play this course again. Friendly clubhouse, the only disappointing point was no towels in the locker room , so bring your own. Really good value for the quality of staff and course."

"Perranporth GC is a pretty tough links course, mainly as there is a lot of "blind" holes, if you've not played before. You need to play it probably twice to understand the layout and all the tricky parts! Not a course for beginners or high handicappers I would say. Most holes are tough and require a dead straight drive from the tee as there's very little give either side, not a lot of room for error. However, this also adds to the enjoyment and the challenge, especially if you've not played a lot of links courses. Luckily I played when there was hardly any wind but can imagine it's a lot tougher when it's blowing off the coast. Not much signage but adds to the fun. I played end of March and the tee's, greens and fairways were in perfect condition. Not the cheapest course around, average from £30 - £45 a round for visitors. Some hoes have spectacular views across Perranporth bay as well! If you're in the area and have your clubs please go and give it a go. It's an excellent but tough course!"

"From the moment we turned up we felt welcomed by all the staff & this continued for our entire visit. The winter warmer golf deal was amazing value and the course is brilliant - a real dunesy links course - more interesting than Trevose. Great golf course & club & welcome :) Thank you - see you next year with more players :)"

"We had our Club Outing at Perranporth yesterday. The course was in excellent condition, the welcome from the Staff was 1st class and the food was fantastic. Thank you also to Emma for tracking down the clothes I left behind!
A visit to Perranporth Golf Club is highly recommended and we will return very soon. Thanks to all :)"

"What a superb pleasure to come to Perranporth on Sunday 19 June. A little bit of rain didn't slow us down or (dampen) our enthusiasm for such a unique place. It is amazing how a golf course can be built so naturally on such rugged, beautiful ground. We had a visitor from another club tell us that the first time you play it you'll think the devil created it, and the second time you'll think you are in heaven. Well, it was heaven for us! I hope there is time left in me to visit Perranporth again. Many thanks again for sharing your club with us - a day that all of us will remember fondly for a long time."

"We held my grandaughter's wedding reception here on August 22nd. She wanted a laid-back reception, hog roast, salads etc. She didn't want a formal top table and the golf club was perfect. The catering and bar staff went out of their way to make the day special. There was no problem decorating the venue, setting up the seating, making room to display the cake and the amazing chocolate fountain. We were so impressed, especially as this was their first large wedding evening do. Well done all."

"Returned to play PGC this year, a party of 24 players from Southerndown Golf Club with a handicap range from 6 to 21. From the time we arrived the welcome was great in the pro shop, bar and catering. To play this course is a great challenge for any handicapper, the course was in great condition. The 2 course carvery after the game was excellent. The day was so thoroughly enjoyed by all our party that I booked for next year on my return."
Colin Edmunds, Southerndown Golf Club, 24 June 2015
"Played on 26 March - the course and greens were in great condition, just like in the summer! How they do it I do not know! They must have great green keepers. Many thanks, P S Devonshire."

"Many thanks to everyone at Perranporth for the warm reception I enjoyed whilst I stayed in your luxurious chalet!
The weather was quite kind as were the gents I played with on Tuesday.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the club and have recommended it to a few friends that have expressed an interest.
The course is a classic seaside links and is very testing despite its apparent short length. The greens were unbelievably fast for February compared to my own parkland course in London. Take your "A" game with you when you play, some of the putts will leave you scratching your head as to how you will keep the ball near the hole! I putted off the green a couple of times not being used to the pace of them.
I hope I can visit again soon.

"Stayed at perranporth golf club for 3 days, beautiful place and if you like your golf to be a challenge this is the place for you. We stayed I a caravan on site which was comfortable, breakfast an evening meal in the club house and unlimited golf where included in the price which was very reasonable. We were offered an up grade to one of the luxury chalets but decided not to as we were only there for 2 nights and spent all day golfing, we did have a look in one of the chalets though, it was beautiful, clean, fresh and very modern. The golf course was a challenge but the views were stunning. Will definitely go back. "

"This is our usual yearly family holiday. The boys play golf, we go to lots of other places depending on the weather. The accommodation is like a little oasis in the middle of the course. Everything was lovely as always. Clubhouse, lodges, golf and especially the sun. "

"I recently had the privilege of playing Perranporth Golf Club. I drove from London on a whisper of incredible views and the offer of pure links. Not knowing what to expect I made the venture. Upon arriving at the first tee, I was not disappointed. The next 54 holes were a near spiritual experience!!!
One would have to travel to seven or eight links courses throughout the British Isles to experience what Perranporth offers it members and guests! I strongly believe that Perranporth could rank amongst the very best, courses like Ballybunion, Machrihanish, Cruden Bay and Royal County Down.
The experience that Perranporth offers to its members and visitors is incredibly unique. The fast and firm playing characteristics, the unbelievable views of the coast, and the ever changing strategies are what I believe what makes Perranporth special. "

"I had the pleasure of playing your course at the weekend (Saturday afternoon) with a friend and feel it only right that I contact you to thank you for a great visit.
Not only did I find the course in great condition but the members chatted and let us play through when called for, this doesn't happen to often I find.
We also (including our wives) ate at lunchtime and had dinner following our round of golf and found the food lovely, the young lady who served us needs a special mention, nothing was
to much trouble and she even moved tables so we could sit in the window.
You folks also allowed me to leave my car overnight as I had had a couple with dinner.
On behalf of myself, Sue my wife, Anne and Bob thanks again for such a wonderful experience."

"Just wanted to thank you and the members for your hospitality and for allowing us to play the course last Thursday and Friday. 36 holes on Friday in a testy wind were a true challenge. But with no rain and sunshine most of the time we consider ourselves fortunate. My group all enjoyed the course and commented 'best views of any golf course in UK'."

"Just finished a week long stay - The entire team at Perranporth Golf Club should be extremely proud, this place is second to none!"
