Jack Nicklaus Course
The Nicklaus golf course at St Mellion in Cornwall opened in 1988. It was bought by American Golf (UK) Ltd in 1998, and they have invested in drainage and maintenance work to make this famous golf course playable all year round.
St Mellion's Nicklaus Course in Cornwall was the first golf course Jack Nicklaus designed in the UK. Jack has built in classic high tees with good views of the fairways, water hazards and the necessity to place the ball with precision in order to return a low score.Not a single hole on this challenging golf courses is mediocre - each one tests the best. The greens are constructed to the American specification of a sand and peat mix and seeded with special imported US grass imported to give a true putting surface that can be played year round.
The tournament tees play 7,000 yards and the medal tees play 6,000 yards for a real test of your golf. The course has a variation of tee positions, so that both the the club golfer and the professional golfer can stretch themselves.
The 6000 yard "Old Course" at St Mellion is a championship golf course in its own right. Opened in 1976 it has many holes which will test the very best golfer.
The bunkers are positioned to catch all but the very best shot, making it wiser to position the ball for a pitch to the green. The long par 4 third can be reached with two good shots. The twelfth is the most picturesque of the Par three's with the lake being quite awe inspiring to the nervous player.
