A round at Mullion is a fun experience, I had the benefit of playing on a sunny albeit windy day which allowed me to enjoy the true splendour of its location. Set on cliffs above the English channel it runs down to the beach before working its way up and down several times, if you’re a member here you’ll certainly be fit.
As other reviewers have noted it’s an uneven course with some great holes which would be at home on any top quality course but its diluted by too many ordinary holes, especially the uphill ones which feel often like a real slog. The most fun holes are the 6th, a short downhill par 4 risk and reward hole, the 7th which is the lowest holes on the course, 8 a tough par 3 with some vicious pot bunkers, the signature 10th hole where you have miss the green at your peril, 14 requires you to a hit a great drive to have any chance. Putting on the greens was a real joy, medium paced but rolled very well with not much undulation.
Despite its remote setting away from the string of courses on the North coast Mullion is definitely worth a diversion and probably placed about right in the rankings, not enough good holes to challenge the top courses but a great day out nonetheless.
