Golf Course – St. Marys

The Isles of Skilly Golf club offers a stunning coastal course that winds its way around the scenic cliffs of St Mary’s. Whether you’re a veteran or budding golfer our 9 or 18 hole course will offer a challenge not to mention the distraction of the beautiful sea views. If you’re visiting St. Mary’s a trip to the most southwesterly golf course in England is a must, even just for a trip to our welcoming clubhouse.

 

Opened by Dr Brushfield in 1904 the Isle of Scilly golf course encompasses panoramic views, trivial cliffs and the signature 109 yard on the 4th hole. Here a gorse surrounded tee must be approached using an iron shot into a basin – just don’t lose your focus with the picturesque scenery. The striking clifftop course was carved out mostly by hand by local farmers to produce the course which is now the main attribute to St. Marys.  

 

After a long days effort on the greens you’ll be in need of a very deserving rest. So relax in our bespoke club house and absorb the panoramic sea views on the terrace. If a cup of tea isn’t your fancy why not spoil yourself with a cold glass of beer and soak up the beauty of the surrounding islands.

 

The Isle of Scilly Golf Course bears a club house which caters to both members and non-members in St. Marys. Take a minute of bliss and enjoy the sunset on the outside decking or enjoy a weekend dinner with a view. We’d like to think our coastal golf course view is unsurpassed by anywhere in St. Mary’s. Our home cooked food is perfect for a family gathering or to celebrate a successful round, don’t miss out and make sure to book.

 

For the non – golfers, don’t miscue and miss out on a visit to the golf course. Our facilities are open to the public and the views really aren’t to be missed. Why not hold a private event here and enjoy the scenic backdrop of the St Marys Coastline.

 

We look forward to seeing you on the course. Contact us today and book your round at St Mary’s Isle of Scilly Golf Club.
