Situated in the centre of town, Bude & North Cornwall Golf Club provides 18 holes of great links golf. The natural all weather fairways and greens are rarely unplayable.
With tight lies and uneven stances on the close cropped undulating fairways and greens that have beautiful quick surfaces, with both severe and subtle borrows the course offers golfers of all levels a challenging and enjoyable experience.
Founded as North Cornwall Golf Club in 1891 the club was originally intended for the exclusive use of the officer class incomers and local gentry with the exclusion of the local townsfolk. An exception to this rule was made for open champion Harry Vardon when visiting the club in 1905, 1907 and 1909. The last visit saw Harry reduce his own course record from 69 to 65.
The growing demand for locals to play the game resulted in the formation of an artisan section in 1919 called Bude Town Golf Club. These artisan members carried out work on the course and were not admitted to the clubhouse and had restricted playing rights. From 1949, North Cornwall Golf Club and Bude Town Golf Club merged to found the present club.
