About the Golf Course

About the Golf Course

Orignally designed by legendary golfer, James Braid, in the 1920's, Budock Vean Hotel's challenging golf course is set in mature parkland and is playable throughout the year.

James Braid was born in 1870 in Earlsferry, Fife, Scotland. He won the Open Championship five times in 1901, 1905, 1906, 1908 and 1910. Braid also won the British Professional Match Play four times and the French Open once. He retired from competitive golf in 1912, and his great passion after his retirement was course design.

More about James Braid

More about James Braid

 It is estimated that his influence was felt by more than 200 courses around Great Britain and examples of his work include Carnoustie, Troon, Prestwick and Ballybunion. Budock Vean Golf Course was originally planned to be an 18 hole course, and we still have Braid's initial designs for this. But due to the sale of some of the land in the 1920s, the BV course ended up as a 9 hole/18 tee course, but is often cited as the best 9 hole course in Cornwall.
