Founding members formed North Cornwall Golf Club in 1891, playing on common land in Bude known as Summerleaze Downs and their pioneering spirit lives on in the form of a small 9-hole pitch and putt course that stands beside the modern day 18-hole layout.

Bude Town Golf Club (later called Bedes Haven GC) was established in 1921 and its artisan members looked after the course until merging with the main golf club to form Bude & North Cornwall Golf Club shortly after World War II.

The prolific course designer Tom Dunn did a fine job squeezing 18 holes into a tight tract of land between the town and the coastline. Holes 1 to 5 lie on one side of Golf House Road with the remaining fairways fitted into the available ground on the other side of the street.

This seaside course extends to just over 6,000 yards from the back markers and its modest overall length is not surprising when the scorecard shows that the trio of par fives on the layout average less than 450 yards from tee to green.

Just be aware that the only two par fours in excess of 400 yards come at holes 16 and 17 (stroke index 2 and 4) so Bude & North Cornwall is more than capable of landing a late punch on golfers who switch off towards the end of the round.
