You have a choice of two courses in St Ives:
For everyone at all levels there is Tregenna Castle's 18 hole course. No booking required, just turn up and play. Only a ten minute walk away (uphill!)
West Cornwall Golf Club
Measuring almost 6000 yards the testing quality of West Cornwall lies in the fact that it has no mercy on a bad or timid shot. Invariably played in anything from a light breeze to a force 9 the course has many defences, but attack it and you should then be able to enjoy the 19th hole. About a 5 minute drive or a bus and short walk.
