Trevose Golf & Country Club
'We are very fortunate to have such a wonderful set-up to offer our members and guests here at Trevose. However, we never take it for granted and we work as hard as possible to ensure that the club prospers and all of our customers green fee visitors, residents, members, etc., are all looked after as best as possible. In August, and at other peak holiday periods, the facilities can become quite busy, so we try to maintain good efficient systems, while also continuing to foster a relaxed and informal manner.'
The accommodation at Trevose has evolved over the years and now offers a variety of options for those wishing to stay. They can accommodate up to 130 people at any one time, with all of the apartments, lodges, flats and cottages being finished to a very high standard. The Fairway Lodges are the latest additions tucked away below the 18th green, and offer unprecedented comfort and luxury. They form two separate buildings which curve gently into the surrounding landscape, incorporating many environmentally positive features, including super insulation, ground source heating systems, rainwater harvesting for re-use on the golf course and extensive green roof space supporting biodiversity. Consisting of three single and four two-storey lodges, every effort has been taken to create the very best in luxurious, environmentally-friendly accommodation. The Fairway Lodges were particularly difficult to build, due to the planning restrictions imposed by the Local Authority, but are used as the latest standard for environmental buildings in the region.
The Trehuel Apartments, have magnificent views over the ocean and the course. They sleep up to 4 persons and are soundproofed and double glazed throughout. Dining after a hard days golf is always pleasant, but it is a real treat when the food is so beautifully prepared. The Links Restaurant is run under the guidance of head chef, Radek, and his talented team, and has built up a reputation for delivering first class cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere.
Trevose has a long and distinguished history of hosting many prestigious tournaments, most notably The Brabazon Trophy in 2008. They continue to host a number of high calibre regional and national events, and are honoured to have been awarded hosting rights for The McGregor Trophy in 2012. Nick Taylor is the head greenkeeper and does a fantastic job of keeping both the Championship Course, the other courses and all the other grassed areas in tip-top condition. No easy task in the busy summer months, or in the more challenging weather conditions out of season. On the Championship Course, pace of play is a bit of a hot issue. Golfers are expected to keep up and play briskly. At peak times it is restricted to two balls, so a leisurely fourball will not hold up the entire field. This is a good way of blending the traditional values, particularly as golfers can play in any format on the nine-hole course.
The 9 hole Headland Course provides a good test of golf for all levels, and was opened in 1993 by Peter Alliss, whose eldest son Gary was professional at Trevose at the time. At just over 3,000 yards, the course gradually winds its way out to Trevose Head, opening up one of the most picturesque views you are ever likely to find on a golf course. As you approach the 5th green, you will see nothing but ocean and the huge expanse of coastline that stretches for as far as the eye can see on a clear day you can see all the way down to St.Ives!
Less busy than the Championship Course, but with comparable course conditions the Headland Course will ensure all golfers of all abilities enjoy this course. In addition it is a handicap rated course, so those wishing to put cards in for handicap review can do so.
The short course is another great opportunity to play less formal golf within the Trevose complex. As a family destination, there is a real link for all the generations, with new golfers always welcome and there are excellent short game facilities and a useful golf range to help with further practice.
Trevose head professional is Gary Lenaghan. He has been a member of the PGA since 1994, and resident professional at Trevose since 2006. Prior to joining Trevose, Gary worked at Woburn Golf & Country Club. Gary is a first class professional and manages the golf shop as a well as providing tuition to all standards. The practice facilities are ideal for him to be able to teach in all weathers and seasons and coach golfers of mixed abilities on the course and on the range. There is a healthy trade in golfing apparel and Trevose branding is very strong amongst members and visitors. As a golfing destination for so many types, what are the challenges for Nick in managing the complex?
'We endeavour to keep our customers happy at all times, which can be tricky at the busier times. Also, we have to continue to develop the business and the cost of building new accommodation is very expensive, with the planning regulations being tougher every year. On the whole, the course is in very good condition all of the time, but we did have a problem with our greens a couple of years ago, when, in an effort to use water in an eco-friendly way, we unwittingly damaged their condition for several months. That is all behind us now, but it clearly showed us who our friends were!'
