Compared to its neighbouring links courses (West Cornwall through to St Enodoc) Trevose is a different kettle of fish. On much flatter land it’s a classic case of what you see is what you get. There is no trickery, blindshots etc and there is plenty of opportunity to give the driver a nudge. The opening holes play close to some nice dunes but the rest of the course is quite flat.
It’s difficult to compare to St Enodoc as they play so differently. Trevose is more of a championship design and I would imagine it would get more serious tournaments than St Enodoc .
The greens are large and smooth, fairways quite generous, rough dry and wispy and all up you should score well here if you get the benign conditions presented to me. The bunkers were interestingly placed. On still days I would imagine they trap the serious player from the blue markers but a decent player from whites, and especially yellows should be able to easily clear most of them. In windy conditions bunkers could be anywhere and be in business.
A very enjoyable round and comparable to somewhere like the New Course/Luffness New design wise but I can’t say whether it’s better than St Enodoc as it’s an apple and Enodoc an orange. Warren from Aust
