Course Description The Nicklaus course was designed by the great man himself and hosted the B&H International for 6 years. Not one of the holes is mediocre - they are all unique, with character, beauty, sand and lots of water.
The undulating parkland Kernow Course has undergone a major facelift including the addition of new lakes and bunkers in addition to new greens.
This famous West Country golf resort has hosted the Benson & Hedges International on six occasions and the Midas English Seniors Open in 2007.
The English Open returned to The European Tour International Schedule in 2009 and will be staged at the St Mellion International Resort at least until 2015.
The course has been a regular fixture on the UK Top 100 and narrowly lost out as the host venue for the 1993 Ryder Cup. It is also regarded as second only to Carnoustie as the most difficult golf course in Great Britain.

St Mellion Nicklaus Course
I will start with the course itself:
It is a great layout with so many different types of golf hole. every hole is very different from another with no 2 being similar. It is tight but not so bad that if you hit a slight draw or fade you would be in trouble. I played on Wednesday 23rd October 2013 and it had been wet for a few days with some heavy rain only 24 hours before. The course drained ok but it was very wet on some fairways and to the point where you were playing shots and getting massive splash back. The greens held up fantastically, they weren't as slow as expected and it was great to see each one hand mown in the morning. The tee offs were struggling with the level of rain and were very wet under foot but did not hamper shots.
The layout of the course is brilliant and if you want a real challange but fair then this course is a must. It is worty of a championship and you can understand how it has held them before. To give it a score would be a solid 8/9.
The issue for me is the 'class' thing. A golf course of class to me is one where the prostaff and green staff go out of their way to really make the whole experience special. Royal Porthcawl and Trevose are prime examples of this where from the moment you arrive you know you are playing somewhere very special. St Mellion to me has a lot to learn from this perspective. The proshop staff are very direct and almost make you feel like you are an inconvienience. I certainly did not feel special and more of a number that will earn them revenue. Even Celtic Manor have an edge and their courses are played by high volumes. Nothing seemed like it was easy for them and everything was rushed and a hassle, they were professional but i felt like another number in there money making machine-not something a course of this quality deserves or should have. The green staff also need to learn course etiquette as on several shots played they were whizzing about on their vehicles and i felt a little patience and a smile could have gone a long way.
Fortunately the course does what it needs but a few weeks at Trevose for the pro shop staff would definitely not go a miss-common courtesy, warmth and a smile cost very little!
It would have cost me £60 for the round but i stayed at the hotel and got a deal. Is this worth it-for the course yes, for the overall wow factor from the moment you arrive definitely not.
My score of 6 is due to the fact i left feeling like i had played a wonderful course run by a money making machine that need help in 'making it special'.
Mark: 6
Value For Money: Fair

You easily forgive the challenge it puts before you, because of its sheer beauty.
Tom Dearman (Pre 2010)

The Nicklaus course is un-like any I have ever played, it has everything a true championship course should have, tight fariways, greens that are not too big, and enough variety for anyone, I played it in November where the rain was coming down and the wind was blowing on and off, I had
the best time out there, played ok but was in constant awe of the natural surroundings, a great golf course and indeed a must play course for anyone who enjoys good golf courses.
