Played St Mellion as part of a short Cornwall tour in Oct 2015. As mentioned in the description on this site the course is in excellent condition, particularly the greens, which were perfect, and surrounds which were precision cut. Certainly a course for the mid-low handicap golfer with some tight driving holes, carries of water and punishing rough. Based on its ranking (63rd in England) the course exceeded my expectations by a long way. Its potentially a top-100 UK course and should be ranked above Trevose in Cornwall (in my view). I'm a big fan of links golf but maybe theres some pro-links and anti-resort course bias that counts against St Mellion in these rankings? All a matter of opinion of course and we were fortunate to play on a sunny day when the course didn't seem to be particularly busy despite it being a Saturday morning which all helps. Wherever its ranked I would highly recommend to serious golfers visiting this part of the UK.
