Like many golf courses in the UK, St Enodoc Golf Club in north Cornwall has enjoyed a surge in member and visitor play during the pandemic as more and more golfers eschew overseas golf breaks in favour of UK-based breaks.
And with fewer people now flying to Europe for golf breaks, that trend looks set to continue well into 2021 and beyond.
With its free-draining links turf and mild winter climate, St Enodoc is well placed to welcome more guests over the coming months, with its Church Course – rated 23rd in Golf World’s Top 100 in UK & Ireland course rankings for 2020/21 – offering experienced golfers the chance to play one of England’s finest championship links, whilst its shorter second course, the 4,082-yard Holywell, is a great option for beginners and youngsters.
Simon Greatorex, general manager at St Enodoc, said: “We’ve been delighted to welcome a whole new host of visitors to St Enodoc this summer, as holidaymakers flocked to the south west and made golf part of their holidays.
“We have also witnessed many more youngsters taking to our fairways, which follows the latest trend of this age group dominating the pay-and-play sector. The Holywell, in particular, proved popular for couples and families looking for a faster and more relaxed round of golf.
“With staycation bookings more than doubling over the summer and travel still difficult to many of the traditional autumn and winter golf destinations in southern Europe set to continue, we are expecting to see more UK golfers than usual in this part of the country over the next few months.”
