Ten Pound Round

The Budock Vean Hotel and Golf Club is celebrating National Golf Month this May by offering “play a round for £10” taster sessions on its hidden gem of a course on the banks of the Helford River.

Budding players or seasoned golfers who have not yet discovered the delights and challenges of this 9 hole/18 tee course, designed in 1922, have a treat in store at a knock-down price.

“This is our contribution to National Golf Month and we’d love to think we will entice some new players to the sport,” says the Budock Vean’s owner Martin Barlow.

“If you don’t like golf after playing a round here I will be surprised. It’s the chance to try either nine or eighteen holes after 2pm daily (except Sundays) – with something to suit all abilities – for just £10 and to discover this beautiful part of the world while doing so.”

The Budock Vean is set in 65 acres of unspoilt gardens and ancient woodland, with its golf course built on gently undulating, mature parkland with narrow fairways flanked by trees. Open winner and Scottish golfer James Braid designed the course around the natural landscape and today it lies seamlessly within the hotel’s organically managed grounds which run down through a ravine garden to a private foreshore on the Helford.

“One of the joys of this course is that you can easily tailor your round to the time you have,” says Martin. “If time is short you can still keep up with your sport with a complete 9 holes in a couple of hours. It’s great value for money and England Golf has confirmed that competitions can be run – and handicaps gained – over 9 holes, so that’s something we’ve already introduced alongside our regular 18 hole competitions.”

Anyone wanting to try the “play a round for £10” offer needs to book tee time after 2pm daily (except Sundays) before the end of May on 01326 252102 or 01326 250288

For anyone considering joining the Golf Club during this period, the Budock Vean is offering a low-cost 3 month trial membership for £100. Thereafter a full membership will be offered at a pro-rata fee for the rest of the golf year, and new accounts credited with £30 to spend in the golf bar and hotel.
