The Nicklaus Course was Europe’s first golf course to be designed by the multi major winner back in 1988. To mark the opening a match was played between Great Britain and USA with Jack Nicklaus himself competing. After Britain’s victory Nicklaus is quoted as saying “knew it was going to be good, but not this good….it’s everything I hoped for and more…St Mellion is potentially the finest golf course in Europe”. The course has a par of 72 and measure just over 6,500 yards. The golf course consistently features in the Top 100 list and although parkland has a unique layout and style. Holes 10 through to 14 are closest most golfers will come to playing Augusta’s “Amen Corner”.
Located only 20 minutes from Plymouth close to the A388 on the Devon/Cornwall border.
