Cornwall’s 36-hole St Mellion International is one of Europe’s most complete golf resorts, rated by Today’s Golfer as one of the UK’s top golf destinations in a recent ‘mystery shopper’ test
“The 14th on the Nicklaus course at
St Mellion International is just one of many unforgettable experiences at the Resort.”
It’s a fitting flagship for the Crown Golf group – and Crown Golf members are encouraged to ‘play and stay’ there, with 20% off standard prices.
At the beating heart of St Mellion are its main attractions: two memorable European Tour golf courses – the Nicklaus Signature Course and the Kernow Course.
In 2013 the course, which was Jack Nicklaus’s first golf course design in the United Kingdom, celebrates 25 years since its official opening in summer 1988. Known as the home of the Benson & Hedges International during the Nineties, superstars such as Seve Ballesteros, Bernhard Langer and Jose-Maria Olazabal have all won European Tour events on the Nicklaus Signature Course.
It is an awe-inspiring test of golf, and we guarantee you will remember your round of golf there. And don’t be deterred by the tales you hear – the Nicklaus has its claws, certainly, but the friendly golf team at St Mellion can also reduce the difficulty setting to cater for any golfing group.
Its sister course, The Kernow, was refurbished and debuted a new-look layout in June 2010. Previously known as The Old Course, during the 70s and 80s The Kernow Course staged European Tour events such as the Benson & Hedges International, and the TPC of Europe. Winding through the lush St Mellion International Resort estate, The Kernow is a tranquil, challenging and beautifully conditioned golf course.
“Luxury on a grand scale, rare in England.

But the golf isn’t the only reason why St Mellion International Resort has won so many accolades.
Set among 450 acres of stunning Cornish countryside, St Mellion’s luxurious 80-bedroom four-star hotel and grounds offer a fresh alternative to the more traditional West Country hotel, with a Spa & fitness club, three pools and three different, equally tempting dining experiences.
It is, quite simply, the ideal golf break, especially as Crown Golf members are entitled to 20% off Stay & Play packages at St Mellion.
We encourage all of our members to play and stay at St Mellion at least once – and we are confident that you will be back for more.
