This will be my 5th/6th visit to Trethorne this year,and I have to say,you will be hard pressed to find a 4/5 day Golf break with better value.The year before last the course was a bit wet (can't control the wheather lol).But I have to say I think the course was in very good condition last year--and a pleasure to play.I always look forward to going back to Trethorne,as you are assured a very good welcome,and all the Staff are very friendly and welcoming.I would thourally recommend this venue for your Golf break---be your party large or small.
we booked our annual 12 aside matchplay event at trethorne in october just wanted to say a few words about the great time and quality welcome and service the people at the club gave us, although the track was a liitle wet it certainly didnt dampen our spirits as a wonderfull 3 coarse meal followed and the hospitality stayed through the evening and to breakfast the next morning, the accomadation was perfect for 24 lads as were the staff, we shall defeintly be going back to trethorne,
Played as part of a one week trip for a small society from the south-east. Dealing with the club in terms of booking and checking in was an absolute pleasure, and although they remembered us from previous visits, I got the impression that it was typical service from them. In previous years, the greens have been a bit of a mixed bag, but I can honestly say that it was the best I have ever seen it. The course has a nice mixture of holes, including a good par 3 over a lake, followed by a drive back over the same water on the next hole. There's no thick rough to speak of, but enough trouble in the shape of either O.O.B or tree lined streams to keep your mind alert. The deal we did with the club included golf, buggies, and a two course carvery; it was probably the best value course of the week. Keep it up Trethorne!
I have just got back from a stag weekend at Trethorne and I have to say it was excellent. The accommodation was excellent, food was superb and as for the course, well that was stunning. It is quite a testing course, plenty of slopes, blind shots, the greens were quick with plenty of subtle breaks and overall it was just a fantastic course to play on. It is a course you have to plot your way round, if it is your first round there then I would suggest a course planner. We walked one round and buggied the next 3, if your playing more than 1 round in a day then I cant see why you couldnt walk it otherwise there are plenty of buggies to hire. I dont understand the the comments of Robin Hurst, there arent any holes that were so easy to reach with a driver, and even if you did then it was bad course strategy because never in a million years would you be able to hold the green. I am a long hitter (best of 358 yards) and at no time was I tempted to go for the greens. I think he must have had a bad round and wanted someone to blame!!!
Keep and eye out for the goodlooking bar staff, that will always cheer you up after 36 holes in a day. I am looking forward to going back.
we played the course on thurs 22/09/05 and can honestly say that this must be the worst value for money course that we have ever played. greens were totaly unplayable and for a green fee of £27.00 we felt that this was a compl;ete waste of money. if you go there take your backpack and ropes the hills are ridiculously steep, the third par 4 of some 390yds was that steep a tap with a driver and i went through the green. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
Played the course on 11/8/05. THe Course was in fabulous condition and offers a real challenge. There are a number of blind / semi blind drives which are not for the faint hearted. The four hole (hole 284 yards) is a real challenge but my personal favourite is the par 3 5th - across a valley with trees all around. Well worth the time and money!
for £10.00 before 8.30a.m. it was superb value for money, typically cornish it was very up and down, but a real challenge. uphill lies downhill lies it has the lot. played 3 times in a fortnight and really enjoyed it. great clubhouse and was made to feel very welcome by members
We have played this course every year since 2001 and are once more returning next week but this time to spend the day.
The course is always in good condition, the staff are always helpful and pleasant and the challenges encountered are interesting for high & low handicaps alike.
It is a hilly course so if you find walking difficult hire a buggy, they don't cost the earth either,& a really enjoyable time will be had.
This is a wonderful course. We booked the day before an turned up to be confronted with visiblity of about 30 yards. There was no way you could have played golf in it. The pro was most helpful in allowing to start on the back nine as the fog lifted and we were able to slot in on the 1st tee.
A wonderful bar that makes a great bacon and cheese roll, and staffed by beautiful barmaids meant that we weren't in any rush to get out anyways.
When we did get out onto the course it was marvellous. Up hill and down dale, doglegs in both directions with enough water features and woods to keep everyone interested. Even though it had been horribly wet the course was still in good condition and thoroughly consistent.
We drove an hour and a half across Dartmoor to get there and never once did we regret it. IF you are anywhere near TGC, make sure you get out and have a round there. A wonderful day's golf.
An excellent course. Prefered the front 9 to the back - more picturesque but some good challenges. Best holes 3 4 and 5 with a really nice par 3 on the 16th. I and my party found the bar staff really tastey and the food helpful (soory other way around) Played 6 rounds over 4 days and never felt bored - get some bugeys though - you'll need them
This is my second report on Threthorne, see above, now it has 18 holes, but are the new 9 any good?
Yes they are, and a couple are a bit scary, but are they an improvement, certainly.
I read that the new holes added to the course, and they do. There is still the magnificent par three over trees to remind you who's the boss, and a collection of other holes to put you firmly in your place. But play sensibly and you won't do bad. I never lost a ball in my 18 holes, and I almost shot to my handicap, but I had to work at it. A bit hilly but worth the strain. The bar staff and the Pro were very pleasant this time. But will I come back, you bet! I still have not played a course that I consider better then Trthorne, and the best just got better.
I played Trethorne several years ago when it was only a 9 hole course, (the next 9 were about to be started). I have to say if the second 9 are as good as the first, then this must be the best course for miles, if not the country.
The green keeper was brilliant, and friendly. There was one sour point, the barman working that day was ignorant, and had no idea how to run a bar.
The course has just about the best mix of holes you could want, starting with a great little dog leg. The next a downhill par 4 with the green in a copse, then a great par 5 up and over a hill. The next, par 3, is breathtaking, then an up and over par 4 with a vertual island green. Next is about the best par 3 I have played. High tee with a tee shot over trees, and a real penalty to pay if you are short. Almost talked through the full front 9, and I could because this is a course to keep talking about, no its better to keep playing. I just hope I can return someday, before I pack up playing. And you should too, you will not forget the course, it will inprint itself on your mind, for all the right reasons, just pray the same idiot is not behind the bar.
