Record breaking year for South West golf trail

A new golf trail in England’s South West has experienced its busiest year on record.

England’s Atlantic Links, www.atlantic-links.co.uk, is made up of some of the finest courses in the South West of England including Burnham & Berrow in Somerset, Devon’s Saunton, Royal North Devon and Trevose and St Enodoc in Cornwall.

The courses have experienced a 10 per cent increase in tee times across the board which they put down to affordable green fees – the average price of a round on the courses is £65 – and a strong showing in the latest Top 100 UK courses rankings by Golf World magazine.

All six courses made it into Golf World’s Top-100 and the group secured top spots in the “Best in County” rankings for Cornwall, Devon and Somerset by the Top 100 Golf Courses rankings in June this year.

Nick Gammon, managing director of Trevose Golf & Country Club, said: “This proves that the Atlantic Links is really beginning to be discovered by golfers in search of good quality links courses at affordable rates.

At the same time, the strong showing of the clubs in various course rankings has boosted the group’s profile whilst its reputation as a prime golfing destination that offers accessibility and a wide choice of activities away from the course continues to grow.”

Visitors to the area can enjoy a variety of tourist attractions including Cornwall’s Eden Project, Tate St Ives – a gallery championing the best of local Cornish art – and the exceptional Padstow seafood restaurants of celebrity chef Rick Stein.

The Devon and Cornwall coasts are also a hotbed for walkers and surfers.
