Welcome Mullion Golf Club, situated on the cliffs of the Lizard Peninsula, is not only the most southerly course in England, but one of the most beautiful in the West Country. Framed by sandy coves and protected reed beds, the course, now well past its centenary, has always attracted the literary giants who not only enjoyed the golf but were also fascinated by the ambience. Conan Doyle, A.P. Herbert, and A.A. Milne played regularly during several visits each year. At 6,053 yards off the white tees, 5,871 yards off the yellows and 5,422 off the reds, Mullion is a good test of golf for all players whatever their ability and particularly so on a windy day.

With course improvements and modern facilities added in recent years, Mullion stands comparison with any rival for a testing and sporting day’s golf. We welcome visiting golfers with handicap certificates, who wish to play in groups of up to four, and also societies, who will be guaranteed a memorable day’s golf and some fine Cornish hospitality in our clubhouse. We have green fees for a round, day and weekly. The catering at Mullion is exceptional and appreciated by members and visitors alike. Whether you come for the day, visit us as part of a trip to this beautiful part of the world or decide to become a member and make us your home club, it is a decision you will not regret. A visit to Mullion lives long in the memory. Come see us soon.

History of the Club Mullion Golf Club was formed in 1895 following a meeting held at the Public Assembly Rooms in Helston. The founder of the course was William Sich, who used to be the churchwarden of nearby Gunwalloe Church, and he was named the club’s first captain. Sich was the chairman of the parish council for 23 years. A sociable man who moved in literary circles, his regular houseguests included such literary luminaries as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (Sherlock Holmes), A.A.Milne (Winnie the Pooh), Sir James Barrie (Peter Pan), and Compton Mackenzie (Whiskey Galore).

These writers also fell in love with the area and the game of golf and played regularly at our club. Another key figure in the club’s early development was Charles Turley Smith, who used to live in a house near the course called Pendragon. Smith was best known as a book reviewer and critic for Punch magazine. Despite such noteworthy patrons as J.M.Barrie, Mullion has not always enjoyed a fairytale existence and the club, much like the coastline on which it sits, has had to weather some stormy times.

Mullion Golf Club - www.mulliongolfclub.co.uk


The club had been bought in the 1920s by the issue of debentures, but it ran into financial difficulties in the tough times that were to follow the Second World War. With declining membership and “ordinary” folk’s interest in golf not yet established there was no option but to sell the land and the buildings, which fortunately fell into safe hands of the National Trust. A few local stalwarts persuaded the Trust to allow golf to continue to be played on a part of the course and as golf grew in popularity, the owners agreed to the re-establishment of the 18-hole course.

This noteworthy event in the club’s history was celebrated with an exhibition match in 1966 featuring leading golfers of the day Peter Alliss, Dai Rees, Norman Sutton and Bernard Hunt. Mullion has never looked back. With course improvements and modern facilities added in recent years, the club stands in comparison with any rival. We celebrated our centenary in 1995 and in 2001 hosted the centennial championships of the Cornwall Golf Union, having hosted the inaugural championship in 1901.

The Course Mullion golf course has been described as the most unorthodox and sporting club where golf is played in the most beautiful scenery. The course is Britain’s most southerly course and the only one on the Lizard peninsula. Founded in 1895, the 18-hole lay-out boasts fabulous views and measures 6,053 yards (par 70, SSS 70) off the white medal tees, 5,871 yards (par 70, SSS 69) off the visitors’ yellow, and 5,422 yards (par 72, SSS 73) off the ladies’ red tees.

All the holes are memorable, but those worthy of particular mention are the stretch from the 6th to the 12th, which determine whether you’ll have a good round or not. The sixth features an opening shot played from an elevated tee towards the green some hundred feet or so below in the distance. The 7th is without doubt one of the toughest par-four holes not only on the course, but arguably anywhere in the county. The views of Gunwalloe Church – which dates back to the 14th century – and the daunting row of crossbunkers

Mullion Golf Club - www.mulliongolfclub.co.uk


straddling the fairway are two sights you will not forget in a hurry. If the scenery does not take your breath away, then the walk up the 9th, surely will. As you pause a moment for your heart-rate to return to normal before taking your first putt, take a moment to look back down towards the tee and survey the coast beyond. The 11th tee is also worthy of a mention as it is on a cliff edge.

Visitors are always welcome at Mullion and can be assured of a testing and invigorating round of golf which can become even more challenging if the wind is blowing. On completion of your round, retreat to the lounge to enjoy a drink whilst you dissect your game with fellow golfers or tuck into a bar snack or meal.

Tour the Course If you have never played Mullion before you are in for a treat. Make the most of your trip by learning about some of the pitfalls that lie in wait and how to avoid them as you follow our course tour courtesy of Ian Harris, our PGA Professional. Hole 1, 196 yards, par 3

Hole 2, 407 yards, par 4 The tee shot should be aimed at the two chimney pots of the home in the distance. This appears left of centre but to go right means avoiding a pot bunker and carrying further bunkers to the green. The approach to this par 4 should land just over the ridge before the green as the downhill apron and green cause the ball to roll further than one thinks.

Hole 3, 410 yards, par 4

The round begins with the trickiest of the four par-3 holes on the course. Naturally into the head winds, the tee shot needs to carry to the front edge of the green to avoid a cross bunker that bites into the left side of the approach. To go over the green leaves the most awkward of pitch shots. Safety can only be found off the tee by finishing short and right of the green.

This long par 4 (par 5 for the ladies) is normally into the sea breeze. Just as it seems from the tee, it is a straight hole but the tee shot should be right of centre to set up an easier second shot. With the green sloping from left to right, the approach is best played left of centre.

Mullion Golf Club - www.mulliongolfclub.co.uk

Tour the Course continued

Hole 4, 485 yards, par 5

Hole 6, 311 yards, par 4

The first of the two par 5s off the white/yellow tees. The tee shot should be aimed at the house in the distance which appears right of centre of the fairway. The second shot must be aimed to the left to allow for the hole “dog-legging” to the right over the last 150 yards. The approach can be aimed to the left of the saucer shaped-green where the natural contour will draw the ball towards the hole.

A short but incredibly tricky downhill par-4 hole. The tee shot must be aimed some 20 metres left of the green to allow for a fairway that slopes considerably from left to right. The long hitter may take on the green but see their ball find a sandy or watery grave in the bunkers or stream that line the right of this beautiful hole.

Hole 7, 432 yards, par 4 Hole 5, 358 yards, par 4 A par 4 with bunkers right and left mean an accurate tee shot over the marker is essential. The approach requires a high, flighted shot over a ridge to the green. Too low an approach will cause the ball to run off the back of the long green.

12

One of Cornwall’s finest stroke index one holes. A confident tee shot aimed at Gunwalloe Church sets up a second shot that will challenge the four cross bunkers that protect the long hour-glass shaped green which always provides a tricky two putt.

Mullion Golf Club - www.mulliongolfclub.co.uk


Hole 8, 155 yards, par 3

Hole 10, 394 yards, par 4

This picturesque uphill par 3 usually requires one more club than you think; this should ensure that you avoid the treacherously deep pot bunkers that guard the green, eight bunkers in all guard this green. The putting surface slopes dramatically from left to right and this can be used to your advantage when chipping if the green happens to be missed.

Seen by many as Mullion’s signature hole, this strategic par 4 has the potential for all kinds of trouble. A straightforward tee shot aimed at or slightly left of the marker sets up a downhill second shot which must avoid the dreaded ravine to the right of the green. The greenside bank will act as a helpful cushion to those clever enough to employ it.

Hole 9, 443 yards, par 5

Hole 11, 158 yards, par 3

This uphill par 5 might not be the prettiest but it certainly involves planning. Keeping your tee shot to the right will allow a safe second, laying up inside the 150-yard markers. The approach to the green plays long so take an extra club and although relatively flat, beware of probably the fastest green on the course.

This tricky par 3 demands a full carry to the putting surface. Aim your tee shot at the back right of the green, this will allow the ball to feed down to the centre of the green. Pay close attention when reading the green or you may face the dreaded three putt!

Mullion Golf Club - www.mulliongolfclub.co.uk

Tour the Course continued

Hole 12, 385 yards, par 4

Hole 14, 354 yards, par 4

A wonderfully landscaped dog-leg par 4 proves that a hole does not need to be 400 yards plus in order to be tough. Keeping the tee shot to the right sets up what is probably a lay up short of the dip and the pond. Finding the two-tier green may set up an Augusta-like downhill breaker depending on the multitude of flag positions.

A par-4 hole played back out towards the sea. The hole plays as a slight dog-leg to the left, with everything running away to the right. Hitting the fairway is important because it opens up the green and leaves the best chance of getting it close with the short approach shot.

Hole 15, 404 yards, par 4 Hole 13, 344 yards, par 4 A short par 4 which offers a good chance at making birdie, but one errant shot could cost you a bogey. Take a club off the tee to ensure you stay short of the two fairway bunkers, this leaves a short to mid iron into a long green. If the pin is at the back you may need an extra two clubs to get the ball all the way to the flag, especially when playing into the wind. 14

A tough par 4 at 404 yards which plays as a dog-leg left unless you wish to take on the penal rough by cutting the corner. This hole makes most of its distance, playing slightly uphill. Hit your tee shot at the black and white marker, this opens up the green which is well guarded by bunkers left and right. The second shot looks shorter then it is, but don’t be deceived: take an extra club to reach the green.

Mullion Golf Club - www.mulliongolfclub.co.uk


Hole 16, 124 yards, par 3

Hole 18, 388 yards, par 4

This is a short but tricky par 3. The green is long and narrow and has bunkers short, left and right protecting it from any errant shots, eight bunkers in all. Club selection is important here, take enough club to clear the front bunkers, but also beware of going long as this leaves a tricky pitch shot.

This is a tough finishing hole, getting a good tee shot away will make for an easier second shot. Ignore the flag on this approach shot, aim for the middle of the green. A par here is a great score!

Hole 17, 305 yards, par 4 If you have a good score going, aim your tee shot just left of the black and white marker, anything too far right is out of bounds! The approach shot is blind, play to the left of the green ensuring you take enough club to clear the front bunker.

Tuition Mullion’s professional staff are PGA-trained and qualified to help golfers of all abilities, members and non-members, to improve their game and consequently enjoy it more. Beginners, novices, high and low handicappers and juniors can all be accommodated by arrangement, either as individuals or in groups.

Whether it is a minor adjustment or a major problem that needs attention, the pros are best equipped to identify the cause and to provide a solution. We are fortunate to have an indoor teaching studio which allows teaching whatever the weather and enables us to

provide newcomers to golf with the best possible introduction to the sport. The academy features a launch monitor and video analysis is available which, in tandem with the latest GASP software, allows the student’s swing to be slowed down and compared against those of the leading players. This visual confirmation allows the pupil to more easily understand how to put right any flaws in their technique and a DVD can be provided enabling golfers to remind themselves of what area was being worked on ahead of their next lesson. The club has extensive practice facilities, with a practice area between the 5th and 13th fairways with flags at 50-yard intervals, a bunker area and a chipping green at the bottom of the practice area, a practice putting green next to first tee and two nets on the side of the Pro Shop, perfect for getting warmed up before a round.

Golf Breaks and Tourist Attractions We would be thrilled if you choose to come and play golf here at Mullion and even more delighted if you choose the area as a base for exploring all the best that Cornwall has to offer. A Golf Break is something well worth considering as the county is home to some of England’s most picturesque courses. Come down for a week or a fortnight and you will not tire of either the golfing challenges laid out in front of you or the scenery. There is no shortage of places to stay, with outstanding hotel accommodation available in the form of the Polurrian Bay 40

Hotel and Mullion Cove Hotels. There are also many appealing bed and breakfast or self catering options, details of which can be found on our website. Mullion is Cornwall’s largest village with a population of around 2,300. The town has a wide variety of shops, art galleries, pubs and tea rooms and is well worth a visit. The Lizard Peninsula boasts some spectacular scenery, with tiny picturesque harbours and pretty villages. The climate is very special too, with the unique conditions meaning it is home to 15 of Britain’s rarest plants.

No trip to Cornwall would be complete without visiting at least one of the beaches which are as postcard-perfect as any you will encounter in the UK with their secluded coves, golden sands and crystal clear turquoise water. The Lizard boasts an extraordinary variety of unspoilt beaches and coves including Poldhu Cove and Church Cove, along with Kynance Cove, probably Cornwall’s most photographed beach. The Lizard Coastal Path is one of the most spectacular stretches of the Cornwall Coast path, reaching from the Helford River in the east down to England’s most southerly

point, The Lizard, and then round past Mullion on the west coast to Porthleven. Less than an hour’s drive away to the north-east is the Eden Project, Cornwall’s most popular tourist attraction, attracting more than one million visitors every year. Land’s End, another popular destination, is about 45 minutes away to the west. There are many other sights, such as the spectacular openair Minack Theatre and the tiny island of St Michael’s Mount, both within 45 minutes’ drive.

Open Competitions Mullion is proud to offer its members a truly outstanding 18-hole layout on which to play their golf, but feel that it is such a magnificent venue and wonderful test that others should also be given the opportunity to enjoy it.

Betterball on the Sunday. A full seven days of competition for both Men and Ladies.

To that end, we host a large selection of open competitions and invitation events throughout the year which, as their name suggests, can be entered by all-comers.

Normally taking place in mid-July, this three-person team Stableford competition sees 18 holes played at one club on the Friday, followed by dinner, with the other club playing host to the second day’s golf and hospitality. 2013 sees Mullion host play on the Friday, with West Cornwall hosting play on the Saturday. This event is often over subscribed and it is advisable to book in advance to reserve your place.

Pride of place goes to our Golf Week, which is traditionally held in the middle of June. Golf Week in 2013 runs from Monday 17th June to Sunday 23rd June. The week starts with an Open Betterball Stableford on the Monday, Tuesday sees the Open Men’s Stableford, Wednesday the Open Team Event, Thursday the Dennis Bray Seniors Open for over 60’s, Friday is the Ladies Open, Saturday the Open Texas Scramble, and the week concludes with the Open Mixed

Another popular annual event is the Coast to Coast Open, which is held over a Friday/Saturday at West Cornwall and Mullion Golf Clubs.

There are other competitions held throughout the year as well. You will find details of upcoming events on our website, together with information about how you can reserve your place.

Social Activities With friendly, approachable members and staff and welcoming off-course facilities, we really feel there is nowhere better to enjoy not only your golf, but everything else that a wellrounded golf club has to offer. The wonderful setting overlooking the Cornish coast lends itself to some spectacular golf, but it is a pretty special place to relax too. An extensive and varied programme of social events is organised throughout the year, with the aim being that there should be something to appeal to everyone, whatever their taste in entertainment. One of the highlights of the year is the club’s presentation evening when members gather to celebrate those who have

displayed golfing excellence at Mullion over the preceding 12 months. The social gatherings do not all revolve around golf, however, with notable dates in the calendar such as Mother’s Day, Christmas and New Year’s Eve all celebrated with equal enthusiasm. Our exceptional caterers have organised a number of themed food evenings, and members have been able to enjoy more traditional steak and pizza and pasta nights, together with the more exotic such as a Caribbean barbecue. Musical entertainment is also popular, with many musical interludes within the themed food evenings, and discos all to have been found in the social diary. We did say we had something for everyone!
