St Enodoc Golf Club and Trevose Golf & Country Club in north Cornwall have launched the Atlantic Pairs competition providing golfers with the opportunity of playing two of England’s most revered championship links next Spring.
What’s more, the Atlantic Pairs offers golfers who enjoy playing pairs events something positive and exciting to look forward to at a time when golf is off the agenda for the moment.
The two-day tournament, a fourball betterball stableford format, sees play taking place over courses created by two of golf’s most celebrated golf course architects: the James Braid-designed Church Course at St Enodoc in Rock and the Championship Course at Trevose (pictured above) laid out by Harry Colt which is located on the opposite side of the Camel Estuary near Padstow, just 30 minutes away by car.
The tournament entry fee is reasonably priced at £185 per pair which also includes a two-course meal after golf provided at each venue. An optional 2’s sweep each day is available at an additional cost of £10 per pair per venue whilst Trevose is offering a special tournament ‘Bed & Breakfast’ rate at their on-site accommodation overlooking Constantine Bay.
The competition allows any mix of gender though a maximum handicap of 20 for men and 24 for ladies is required.
Play on two fantastic championship links
Simon Greatorex, general manager at St Enodoc, is delighted to welcome visiting golfers on the links:
— The Atlantic Pairs next March will give golfers the opportunity to play two fantastic championship links and to meet new golfing friends. he event is open to all and we look forward to welcoming visiting golfers from all over the country as well as from Europe and possibly further afield. If successful, we are looking to stage the Atlantic Pairs on an annual basis as an early Spring celebration of golf and friendship.
The championship Church Course at St Enodoc, established in 1890, regularly appears in the top ten in the country in course rankings, and is regarded as one of golf’s most beguiling tracks that is often described as ‘once trodden, never forgotten’.
A dramatic bakckdrop of rock and ocean
Meanwhile the Championship Course at Trevose, one of England’s most highly regarded golf resorts following its establishment in 1925, provides an exhilarating round of links golf. Set against the dramatic backdrop of Trevose Head and the Atlantic Ocean, this layout plays differently every day depending on the strength and direction of the wind.
