Mullion Golf Club is set spectacularly on the cliff tops of the Lizard Peninsula in one of the most beautiful and most exposed locations in England. Originally founded in 1895, Mullion Golf Club came close to extinction on a number of occasions and, like the proverbial phoenix, the club managed to claw its way from the ashes.

William Sich was the driving force behind Mullion’s early years and he is also accredited with the course design. An exhibition match in 1966 featuring Peter Alliss, Dai Rees, Norman Sutton and Bernard Hunt celebrated the re-opening of the full 18-hole course and Mullion has never looked back.

“Mullion has been variously described as quaint, cute and short but sweet,” remarked Kevin Lee in The Golfers Guide to the West Country , “and it cannot be denied that this, the most southerly course on the mainland, is all of these. But to leave it at that is to do it a disservice, and such adjectives as intriguing, inviting, uplifting, cheeky, tricky and downright awkward in places also need to be applied to this out-of-the-way gem. Indeed, it is difficult to imagine from where it conjures up a membership of some 650 souls, situated as it is between Goonhilly Downs and Mounts Bay, some seven or eight miles south of Helston, itself hardly a metropolis…

There are some fascinating and enchanting holes, like the seventh and eighth to Gunwalloe Cove, where a slice at the latter will be gone on the tide; the scenic 10th, where your approach to the elevated green must carry a ravine separating it from the shoreline; and the 17th, where the tee has been described as the warmest spot in England.”

Mullion is a fab little course - with some quirky holes which gets better as you go round as the first few holes are pretty weak. Highlights are the 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th which is a great little stretch with some good holes and better views.On the down side played there on the 29th Dec and 30th dec - and the 'reception' we got on the 29th dec in the shop when looking to sign in was the rudest welcome I have ever recieved and almost made us forget the 30th tee booking.

The only welcome you get in the pro shop at Mullion is a rude one. The clubhouse more than makes up for it tho

played this little beauty about 5 years ago. Was very new to golf at the time and thought it was too dificult for me to enjoy. Looking back now tho I have very fond memories of Mullion. Really quirky holes and IMHO the best coastal views of Cornwall on the lizard. I'd love to return now that my game has improved to test myself again.Shab.

Beautiful course in a lovely, little visited, corner of England.Very friendly course, excellent value green fee, and some memorable holes - warnings regarding Adder snakes, and the downhill par 4 followed by a par 4 along the bottom of the hill finishing by an abandoned chapel on the beach stick in the memory.Seaside Golf !dan

Winwalloe church is not abandoned, it is used regularly and well worth a visit.

A beautiful golf course with some stunning views. An ideal holiday members course - not long but with some interesting and challenging holes.On the day we played it the wind was a mere breeze - but beware if the wind blows!We were made to feel more than welcome by the members and the staff.Well worth the visit if you are down in Cornwall.
