St Enodoc Included in Golf Digest's Inaugural 'World's 100 Greatest Golf Courses'

January 28, 2014

St Enodoc's Church Course has been included in Golf Digest's inaugural ranking of the 'World's 100 Greatest Golf Courses'.

The inclusion of St Enodoc represents a major feather in the cap for one of England's oldest golf links as Golf Digest, a top international golf magazine that has been ranking golf courses for almost half a century, is widely regarded as one of the most authoritative voices in golf with regard to course rankings.

The north Cornish links is in exalted company. The all-American trio of Pine Valley, Cypress Point and Augusta National top the rankings whilst Northern Ireland's Royal County Down has secured fourth spot.

St Enodoc, one of just 11 courses in England that feature in the listing, has been awarded 99 th position and is described by Golf Digest as 'A rollicking James Braid design on the southwest toe of England, lengthened in the past decade but still short and odd enough to be a cult favourite'.

"St Enodoc is both honoured and proud to make it into the 'World's 100 Greatest Golf Courses' especially as the ranking has been compiled by Golf Digest which has built up  an excellent reputation in the golfing world for the credibility of its course rankings ," comments Tuck Clagett, manager of St Enodoc.

"Whilst St Enodoc has regularly featured in UK and European course rankings over the years, it is a great thrill for us to be able to say we have been recognised as one of the top 100 golf courses in the world by Golf Digest."

Founded in 1890, St Enodoc is a championship links that is both beguiling and challenging. Famed for its characteristic fairway undulations and firm greens, this stunning links is set against the backdrop of some of the greatest sea and estuary views of any course in the world. From every hole, the views of either the north Atlantic Ocean or the Camel Estuary are breathtaking.

Further testament to the quality of the course, the Church Course has hosted numerous amateur golf events, including the English Ladies Amateur Championship in 1993 and 2002 and the English Counties Championship in 1989 and 2005. And this year St Enodoc has been bestowed the honour of hosting the 2014 English Women's Amateur Championship from July 14 to 17.

For the quality of the course, St Enodoc remains extremely reasonable to play with green fees in the summer priced from £75 and just £45 in the winter.
