Bowood Park Golf Course
Bowood Park is a beautiful, rolling parkland course, set in an ancient deer park that
was once owned by the Black Prince.
These days Bowood Park is a very nice hotel and golf club - and easily one of the
best venues in Cornwall to stay and play. The Bowood Park Golf Hotel offers some
amazing deals for golf-breaks throughout the year.
The course is lovely - offering a variety of holes - some quite benign, some quite
terrifying. Most memorable are the monster par 5 seventh - measuring 645 yards
from the back tee! And the twelfth - a par 4 that will take your breath away - but this
hole is a card-wrecker! Out of bounds left, a river right, and an island green protected
by some very tall trees. Get a four here and you'll feel like a king!
