St Enodoc Golf Club, Cornwall
St Enodoc's Church course is a James Braid design that enjoys a justified reputation as one of the West Country's finest links layouts. It may not look it but the par 5 1st is one of the easier holes even if you have to thread your way carefully between the sand dunes. Pars are harder to come by on the long par 4 2nd and 3rd holes. The 6th really sticks in the mind - a 378-yarder that kinks left at driving distance then climbs up to the green. A hidden fairway bunker may catch out longer players seeking a view of the green but laying up short and right leaves a blind shot over the cavernous "Himalaya" bunker you simply don't want to be in. Rumour has it that it is the biggest bunker in Europe but it does have a few rivals for the title. Use your head on this one because it's very easy to make a stupid mistake here. At 6557 yards it is not long by today's standards yet strangely the new course record is 65, only 4 under par so it is far from a push over. It is often said that many links courses are easy if there is no wind - even St. Andrews - but somehow that really does not apply to St Enodoc.
