The courses in Cornwall are very different to others in the UK, no matter how many times you play a particular shot it will never turn out the same. Within recent years a few of the Clubs have undergone some changes, with new courses being built and old ones being changed which has led to Cornwall being one of the places that is on every golfers must play destinations.

Despite the tough climate, the right properties are still selling By working with our clients to price property realistically, at a value driven E\WKHPDUNHWUDWKHUWKDQE\ÀDWWHU\WR win your business, we have continued to generate sales. In fact, at Savills in Truro we reported our best winter period for sales, since opening in 2006. While we have sold properties from under £250,000 to over £5 million, the average price of properties we have sold over the last three years in Devon and Cornwall is £973,551. Martyn Rohrs Savills Cornwall 01872 243200 mrohrs@savills.com

This time last year we were looking ahead to the summer of 2011 with a mixture of cautious optimism and nervous anticipation. It seemed that not a day went by in 2011 without bad news for the UK economy, but from a local perspective, I’m pleased to report that the winter months of 2011/12 weren’t all doom and gloom.

In the third quarter of 2011, the average sale price of properties sold by Savills across the region was 97.4% of the asking price. And this speaks volumes about our pricing strategy. Today’s buyers are buying a property in the knowledge that it may be worth the same or less next year, and so they are understandably very focused on value for money. This UHÀHFWVWKHJHQHUDOVHQWLPHQW throughout the UK economy. But if the guide price is right, then there is no shortage of buyers. In fact we have seen competitive bidding over the guide price on a number of our recent sales, with one being concluded some 50% above the original guide price!

We handle a variety of properties from the listed manor house to the one off contemporary designs. It’s still a very tough market, but the right property, in the right location at the right price has sold and will continue to sell. Selling a property in this climate requires a deal more than good fortune. Experience, sound advice and an international network of agents is a good place to start. Savills has been selling properties in the West Country since 2001 with a dedicated team that can testify to the desirability of the area, KDYLQJH[SHULHQFHGLW¿UVWKDQG Savills has a network of over 200 RI¿FHVDFURVVWKHZRUOGDQGIRUWKRVH potential buyers that we can’t reach face to face, the Savills website provides a shop window for our properties to property searches across WKHJOREHUHFHQW¿JXUHVVKRZWKDW Savills.co.uk is the most visited UK national estate agency website*.

Cornwall Ladies Golf Association The Cornwall Ladies Golf Championship was formed in 1896 when members of Royal Cornwall, Bude and Falmouth Golf Clubs raised funds to buy a Challenge Cup. The sum of £12.11.0 was collected and a solid silver Bowl with Cornish Arms engraved was bought as the Championship Cup to be played for annually. Together with Yorkshire the Cornish Championship is the oldest in the Country It was not until 1930 that The Cornwall Ladies County Golf Association came into being, when it was decided to amalgamate the “County Club” with the already existing “Cornwall Ladies Golf Union”. From then on County matches were arranged between Somerset, Devon and Dorset. Spring and Autumn Meetings were started together with other County Competitions. Except during the World Wars the Championship has been held every year and is a SRSXODUVWDUWWRWKHVHDVRQ4XDOLI\LQJLVRYHUKROHVZLWKDPD[LPXPRISOD\HUV WKHVWJURVVVFRUHVHQWHUWKHPDWFKSOD\VWDJHV8QGRXEWHGO\LW·VFRQWLQXHG success has been due to the Western Morning News Cup which is awarded to the Club returning the best 4 gross scores and encourages club golfers to participate.

St Enodoc Golf Club St Enodoc Golf Club on the North Cornwall coast overlooks the Camel Estuary, with Padstow on the far side, and to the North out across the Atlantic. The location on the high sand dunes is ideal for golf combined with stunning sea views. The club is situated in one of the driest parishes in Cornwall and being on sand is ideal for golf twelve months of the year; even in the depths of winter frost is a rarity thanks to the warm Gulf Stream climate. The area is renowned as a holiday resort and with the advent of the motorway network and the upgrading of the A30 is only about 4 hours drive from London. St Enodoc has two courses; the Church course is the James Braid designed Championship course which in September 2005 the club hosted the English County Finals and the shorter Holywell course which is an ideal course for those wanting slightly less of a challenge.

Targeted Marketing for Golf Clubs in Cornwall

Many Golf Clubs are seeing their memberships dwindle in recent years and participation in Golf is consistently falling across the country. However, on Sunday 25th March, St Austell Golf Club signed up 16 new members at their Open Day and expects more follow-up interest in the coming weeks. This was primarily the result of a targeted marketing FDPSDLJQEHLQJSLORWHGLQFRQMXQFWLRQZLWKWKH&RUQZDOO6SRUWV3DUWQHUVKLS and the Cornwall Golf Partnership. The Cornwall Sports Partnership is encouraging Sports Clubs to adopt a more sophisticated and business like approach to their sustainability â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ultimately demonstrating that a little strategic thinking and investment in evidence-based techniques can result in serious Returns on Investment. Jake Leat, of the Cornwall Sports Partnership said that he was â&#x20AC;&#x153;extremely excited to see the initial evidence from St Austell. This could have a phenomenal impact on Clubs seeking to re-energise their memberships DQGLQFUHDVHZLGHU&OXEEHQHĂ&#x20AC;WVVXFKDVOHVVRQVSURVKRSEDUDQG restaurant takingsâ&#x20AC;?.
