Tehidy Park Golf Club was established in 1922. Tehidy Park Golf course is a parkland course with tree lined fairways. There are 3 lakes which come into play on 3 holes, particularly on the testing 193 yard par 3 17th. The course is designed to both challenge the very best golfers while still being enjoyable for the higher handicap player. Handicap requirements: Certificate Required.
Tehidy Park Golf Club is in tin mining country, two miles from the North Cornwall coast. In 1922, businessmen from the Camborne-Redruth area leased 75 acres of the Bassett Estate and were advised in the course design by the Open Champion Jim Barnes. This course was first played in October of 1922 and at that time measured only 5000 yards.
In the late 1940's, the golf course architect C.K.Cotton was employed to lengthen the course to 6241 yards, and adding a number of improvements. Although undulating, the course is never unduly difficult to walk, the only tough climb being up the difficult 443 yard, par 4 15th hole.
In 1996, the freehold was purchased and in 1998 an improved watering system which needed the building of the three lakes which you can now see along the closing holes of the course. The lakes are also now the permanent home of a pair of breeding swans, moorhen and mallard. Thousands of young trees planted in 1999 and when they reach maturity, Tehidy Park will become a very demanding course through its entire length.
The lakes play a part on four holes, especially the 193 yard, par 3, 17th where a carry from the medal tee of close to 170 yards is required to ensure safety.
