ST. ENODOC GOLF CLUB
Another Tom Doak favorite (an architect whose opinion we respect), is St. Enodoc on the rugged but much-loved coast of north Cornwall. Here you will find a landscape of huge sandhills, one of which, called the “Himalayas,” was called by the great Bernard Darwin “the highest sandhill, to the best of my belief, I have ever seen on a golf course.” The links is so old-fashioned, with tiny, hidden pot bunkers, rolling and undulating fairways, blind shots, and the requisite firm and fast greens. St. Enodoc is also home to one of our favorite steeples in Britain, the ancient steeple of the old St. Enodoc church, after which the club’s second course is named.
