Crazy golf (but in a good way)! We had a thrilling autumn afternoon in the autumnal sun on this astonishing James Braid layout. Playing here for the first time is far from easy with so many blind and semi-blind shots so we were extremely grateful for light wind as I am sure Perranporth could become unplayable very easily. As it was we had an exhilarating day and just the most superb fun, although a couple of our group still came off feeling pretty beaten up. The first hole is very gentle (despite the severe drop off to the left of the green) compared to what follows, and playing it for the first time the 2nd is a frustrating par 5 that zigzags right, then left and then left again requiring 3 blind shots to get to the green. Standing on the 3rd green I had started to fear a 1star rating, despite having started well, as I sensed the course could be too ‘tricked up’ to enjoy, regardless of the beautiful beach, ocean and coastline views that start properly from the 2nd hole. Thankfully however that’s not what we found and instead I’d describe Perranporth as an insane rollercoaster of a ride! A must play golfing experience. The course winds its way through enormous dunes, over and around humps and hollows with numerous greens perched up high with no obvious bail out areas requiring exacting shots to reach, and often being 2-3 clubs extra to get up to the putting surface. If scoring matters, which it only did for me because I played well, par for both men and women is 72 but with very different scorecards for each with ladies having 5 par 3’s and 5’s whilst men have just 3 of each. If you’re not on your game, or your luck feels out which it could be often here, just throw your scorecard away early on and enjoy the unique experience and the utterly spectacular views. The green fee is an absolute bargain, the clubhouse is friendly and food we sampled was superb. Quirky, extreme golf - how Braid created such a course nearly 100 years ago is beyond me. But delighted that he did.
