Golf courses

St Mellion is arguably the premier golfing destination in the South-West, boasting two championship courses, and has welcomed the European Tour's elite on no less than six occasions for the Benson and Hedges International.

Nicklaus Course

Opened in 1987, the Nicklaus Course at St Mellion was the Golden Bear's first project in the UK, and to this day Jack rates it as one of his best creations. The £2.5 million investment now complete was overseen by the Nicklaus design team.

From the championship tee markers the course measures 7,019 yards and is a thorough examination, but there are tees to suit golfers of all abilities. The Nicklaus is typical of its designer's architectural ethos, with a premium being placed on finding the correct position from the elevated tees in order to attack the flags. Inaccuracy will be punished severely by the strategically positioned bunkers and water hazards around this South-Western gem.


Par: 72

Designed by: Jack Nicklaus

Opened for play: 1988

Previously hosted: PGA Cup Match (1988), B & H International Open (1990-1995), English Amateur Championship (1999), Midas' English Seniors Open (2006, 2007), PGA European Tour's English Open (2011)

Did you know? Jack Nicklaus speaks highly of his design, going as far as to say St Mellion is 'potentially the finest golf course in Europe'.


Blue: 7008 yards, SSS 74

Medal: 6612 yards, SSS 72

Yellow: 6369 yards, SSS 71

Red: 5509 yards, SSS 73

Kernow Course

Formerly known as the Old Course, St Mellion's Kernow is often in the shadow of Jack Nicklaus' creation next door, but it is a fine championship layout in its own right. Though not particularly long by modern standards - the Kernow measures 5,782 yards - there is no shortage of challenge and intrigue.

A major face-lift has seen the addition of new lakes and bunkers, plus some totally rebuilt putting surfaces. Spectacular scenery surrounds the course, whose highlights include the short 12th, where the green is guarded closely by water, and the memorable par-4 closing hole which demands two excellent strikes.


Par: 70

Designed by: J. Hamilton Stutt

Opened for play: 1976

Previously hosted: B&H International Open (1979), Tournament Players Championship (1983, 1984)


White: 5606 yards, SSS 74

Yellow: 5297 yards, SSS 71

Red: 4871 yards, SSS 73

Signature hole- No. 11: 

Par 3, 203 yards, SI 11

The 11th hole is a demanding par 3 and from an elevated tee, it requires a 203 yard carry over a river to the front and left of the green, ensuring that any mis-hit shots will be punished accordingly.  

Hotel Information

The St Mellion International Resort's new 4* hotel is the star of the £20 million project, and is situated conveniently next to the clubhouse, and provides extremely comfortable hospitality for a golf break. The 80 spacious air-conditioned en-suite bedrooms are decorated in a fine contemporary manner, and are fitted with excellent modern amenities to ensure a comfortable stay.

For large groups and families, St Mellion also has the Fairway Lodges, which range from one to five bedrooms, and are surrounded by the resort's golf courses. The lodges are within easy reach of the clubhouse, and guests can eat at the Brasserie if the exertion of cooking is too much after a day on the course. Every house is spacious, and the expansive living area provides the warmth and style that are perfect for a sociable golf break.

The Leisure Club includes a 25-metre swimming pool, leisure pool, sauna, steam room and spa pool, while racquet sport enthusiasts can also use the tennis and squash courts. St Mellion's health spa and beauty salon has fully trained staff to guarantee total relaxation, with signature treatments including facials, manicures, pedicures and massages.

Overlooking the Nicklaus Course's 18th green, St Mellion's An Boesti Restaurant creates innovative cuisine using the best locally sourced West Country produce.

The Bewdern Bar & Brasserie is a warm and informal choice for a meal, snack or drink throughout the day.

The Nicklaus Golfer's Bar is the perfect 19th hole, featuring a wide-screen TV and a barbeque terrace.

I would have to give 10 out of 10...
5 Star Rating

Overall, I would have to give 10 out of 10. I do not do this lightly, but we have entertained a group of clients and friends for the last 3 years and on every level, course, hospitality, food, rooms etc, etc everyone has made it clear that it’s our annual venue of choice!

Above all, the overall customer service is one of the best experiences we encounter and I’m already excited by our next outing.

I employ 200+ people in a sales & service organisation and I can say that I would be very proud to have the service culture that the team at St.Mellion have embedded back within my organisation – well done!

Our favourite golf course in the UK...

Another quality 5 days at St Mellion this year, which was our 7th year on our favourite golf course in the UK. Will be looking to book again for 2013!

Everything was great value...
5 Star Rating

Everything was great value and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the weekend.

We had a great weekend and we will definitely be back!

Thank you for an amazing stay ...
5 Star Rating

The pro shop staff were fantastic. Friendly, bright, and helpful. They made my group feel special which I really appreciate.

The golf course (Nicklaus) was in fantastic shape, the greens were fast, holding, and true. All areas of the course were immaculately kept. It’s been a tough year for golf courses, but playing that course you wouldn’t know it.

Thank you for an amazing stay

It's an ideal place for a weekend golf break...
4 Star Rating

I organised for 2 societies to go to St Mellion (32 people altogether) to play against each other on both the Kernow and Nicklaus courses. Overall the courses were in good condition although the tees on the Nicklaus were looking a bit tired.

The rooms were good and the food was good too and I didn't have any complaints from the lads. Unfortunately the cost of drinks in the bar was a bit steep, but after a few tend not to worry about it!

Members of staff in hotel and pro shop were friendly and helpful and all things considered, it's an ideal place for a weekend golf break.

Thanks to Your Golf Travel who managed to quickly get it all booked up. Overall everything ran smoothly and would recommend you to mates.

The golf courses themselves are very well maintained...
5 Star Rating

St Mellion is a resort which we have wanted to try out for a few years. Now having now spent a weekend there, playing both courses during our stay, we were not disappointed. What a great venue!

It's well sign posted, so easy to find, the rooms are very clean and extremely comfortable, the staff at the venue are very friendly and helpful and the golf courses themselves are very well maintained and a good challenge to all levels of golfer. I would recommend buggies though as it is a very hilly course.

Food and drink is of a very good standard and at a reasonable price too.

Yourgolftravel sorted out the weekend for us and did a great job. We will be back. 10/10

The Nicklaus course was simply fantastic...
4 Star Rating

Thanks for helping us with our weekend golf break to ST Mellion. 

First off our welcome was very good and all staff were very friendly and helpful.

Secondly the rooms were very spacious and clean, and the beds were comfortable too.

The golf courses were also in brilliant condition. The Kernow  was challenging enough but the Nicklaus course was simply fantastic ; hard but fair to all handicappers and I would recommend golfers to take some photos as each hole offers a new challenge. 

We found the price of buggies (£35) and trolleys (£5) were a bit expensive. The bar prices were maybe a bit pricy too but we expected that. The restaurant staff were very good as were all of our meals. 

All of our group said how nice St Mellion was and as such I would recommend it, and YOURGOLF TRAVEL to all my friends. Thank you once again.

One of the best courses in the world...
5 Star Rating

Thanks for the great weekend at St Mellion. The Nicklaus Course must rank as one of the best courses in the world. It’s got everything: fast greens, valleys, ponds, streams, with every hole offering something different and all in fantastic surroundings.

The food at the resort was pretty good as well and coupled with great service throughout, I would rank St Mellion 10 out of 10 and will certainly return soon. I would definitely recommend it to all serious golfers.

Yet another well put together golf break from Your Golf Travel.

Some of the holes are truly stunning...
5 Star Rating

Julie and I really enjoyed our stay at St Mellion, where all the staff in the hotel and golf course were helpful and very friendly. The food was excellent too, with plenty of choice from the menu. The room was clean and comfortable and the leisure facilities were excellent.

The golf courses were also in excellent condition, especially the greens. The Nicklaus Course is superb and some of the holes are truly stunning. It is a stern test of golf and I would play it totally differently when I go back. It is more of plotting your way round type of course and at times frustrated me, but that was from not knowing the course. It is a tough walk, but I did not see the benefit of a buggy as they have to stick to the cart paths on the Nicklaus course.   

We were lucky to have fantastic weather but I would love to go back as the whole experience was superb.

The Hotel was stunning...
5 Star Rating

I would like to thank everyone at for helping me organize our trip to St Mellion.

The Hotel was stunning and all the staff were very helpful indeed. The pro in the golf shop even gave us a tour of the place and gave us good advice on how you tackle the golf courses.

All twelve of us thoroughly enjoyed the trip and would love to return back one day to take on the Nicklaus course once more.

We would certainly recommend St Mellion to other golfers and would do so for all different size groups & societies.

Prices are very reasonable...
5 Star Rating

We recently returned from our second visit to the St Mellion resort. This complex is a great place to visit whether you play golf or not, as there is plenty to do and see. The Kernow course is a lovely parkland course set in rolling countryside with great views. The quality of the fairways and greens is excellent and the course marshals ensure that the pace of play is never too slow. 

The Hotel is of a very high standard too, and prices are very reasonable compared to other resorts that I have stayed in. The service was excellent with friendly and speedy members of staff who never kept you waiting for food or drinks. The quality of food and variety meant that there was a choice for everyone, including veggie options. Unlike a few other resorts that we have visited there was not a separate menu for guests visiting on a golf holiday and very few supplements to pay.

I would certainly recommend a golf break at St Mellion and will be going back for a third visit hopefully later in the year.  10/10
