Architect

Jack Nicklaus

It wasn't until he had been active in course architecture for nearly two decades that Jack Nicklaus finally went to work in England. The reason for this delay was not skepticism about his designs, but rather the high fee that he commanded, usually a million dollars, and cost over-runs were common with him. At last a pair of Cornish farmers and developers brought the Golden Bear in to add a second course to a pre-existing site outside Plymouth. And indeed, a designer with Nicklaus' vision and experience was necessary to construct a course on such a site, which extends over the two flanks of a hill bounded on either side by abundant water. Completion of the task required a great effort and a great amount of money, and the result is a rambling tournament-level course that is almost as demanding a hike as it is a golf course.

One of the best Nicklaus designed courses I have ever played – great challenge of your game. The condition is always pure with quite narrow fairways. Hotel is a great addition, has a nice SPA and a gym, everything you need at one place.

Genuinely one of THE hardest golf courses I have ever played, including againt all of the links courses. Tight fairways often flanked by OOB, often wet and a design that forces you to decide on and craft tough shots, this is a departure from the boring jack nicklaus designs found elsewhere in the british isles... (cough... london club... cough)
