Pendeen, near St Just,
Courses: Cape Cornwall & West Cornwall
The Cape Cornwall Club offers an 18-hole golf course with a challenging par 70/5672 yards off the white tees, all the way down to a shorter par 63/4105 yards from the forward blue tees intended to encourage beginners and those with the highest handicaps. Features of the course include Cornish hedges and rocky walls, which, along with the capricious winds, add to the challenge and can alter your choice of club significantly each time you play. Each of the 18 holes offers incredible views with some of the most scenic geographical features in the United Kingdom. On a calm, sunny day, you can see all the way out to the Isles of Scilly.
West Cornwall Golf Club is one of the finest links courses in Cornwall. The course was established in 1889, making it the oldest golf club in the Duchy and one that has won much acclaim. Peter Alliss was an honorary life member who always spoke very highly of the course and the warm welcome all can expect to receive.

The Captain’s House lies at the northern end of a row of stone cottages, originally built for the HM Coastguards, on a slight rise and overlooking the lighthouse some 500 yards away. The cottage has been lovingly restored and is full of glorious books from the era, as well as shipwreck and fascinating marine memorabilia, ensuring guests have a comfortable, relaxing holiday and providing the perfect place in which to unwind. It has a large granite cellar under the stairs, as well as a lower bathroom (unfortunately not accessible now for safety reasons), which was used for storing the more valuable items taken from wrecks, weapons, general supplies and, of course, rum. The Coastguards, as was British Naval tradition, would have been issued a daily tot of rum, with an extra ration during times of hardships such as a rescue from floundered vessels, or celebrations such as the monarch’s birthday. Until only a generation ago, the inhabitants of these cottages were the toughest of men with a very dangerous occupation. Most of them entered the Coastguards from the Royal Navy and the first postings for the period 1819-1866 can be traced in the parish, remembered to this day. The Captain’s House has been restored with the objective of retaining as much of its original character as possible including the original fireplaces (with their naval anchor logos), and the many nautical artefacts that reflect its history and the personalities of its earlier residents.
When enjoying a good glass of wine and maybe admiring a lovely sunset, or watching high seas on a stormy winter’s evening, give a thought to the brave men who were hugely interesting and larger-than-life personalities who resided here.
