    Plymouth Area

    May be down in Plymouth for 3 weeks at the end of the month with my work.
    Won't have time during the week but do hope to grab a game or two at the weekends, any recommendations on where to play as a visitor nearby.

    China Fleet Club is decent. Be careful though as it might be full of members of Her Majesty's senior service, all hacking it around.

    Good course though.

    St Mellion is another close by. Have not played it personally, though I believe it to be fantastic.

    Agree St Mellion is the best club near Plymouth. Seriously tough track tho. Staddon heights is really good, china fleet is ok, good value

    Thurlestone would definitely be worth the short drive, followed by an evening on a nearby beach or in Salcombe!

    St Mellion is a must. I played in an open in early August one year, see if its on while your down there.

    Another +1 for St.Mellion if you want something a bit special

    The Nicklaus Championship course is a little pricey but worth it imo as it is quite something and an unforgettable experience

    The 2nd course (Kernow) is nice enough with some standard holes and some good holes but not in the same league

    I have always enjoyed playing Staddon Heights (take an old SW). Yelverton was recommended to me but I have never player there. Wrangaton is very interesting with two very different 9s one on the moor and one in the woods.

    I used to be a member of China Fleet and it's a good course. Yelverton is a very good moorland course. Staddon Heights is worth playing even just for the views. St Mellion is well documented. Whitsand Bay has some interesting holes, take the Torpoint ferry. Thurlestone is very nice, as is Dartmouth & Bigbury are also good coastal courses. Trethorne is a quirky course with some very memorable holes, just off the A38, just remember your climbing boots.

    If you fancy a shortish (1hr) drive back up the A38 I can host you at East Devon.
