  • Welcome to Truro Golf ClubTruro Golf Club, with its mature course set in a superb landscape, was founded in 1937. In gently undulating and easy walking countryside and populated by mature trees, the course provides both a challenging test for low handicap players and enjoyable golf for all. The 18-hole par 67, 5,339-yard parkland course is maintained in excellent condition by head greenkeeper Jim Sheehan and his team.

    The combination of attractively set fairways leading to some surprising slopes and borrows on slick summer greens makes for a course to delight members and visitors alike. We also have a putting green, ample parking, a practice area and tuition available with our PGA Professional.The modern clubhouse with its comfortable bar and catering facilities ensures that golfers, social members and guests get maximum enjoyment. Although only a mile from Cornwalls attractive capital city, the beauty of the course with fine views across open countryside presents an outstanding sporting oasis.We are celebrating our 75th anniversary in 2012 and would be delighted for you to come and experience the warm welcome guaranteed at our friendly club.

  • The Club HistoryA golf course for Truro? This was the question presented to businessmen of Truros Chamber of Commerce. The then Chairman, Mr W. J. Kemp, led the discussion and it was resolved to form a sub-committee to progress the issue.

    By May 1936 a site (the present location) had been found and running costs had been estimated. Five members of the Chamber of Commerce formed a syndicate, which became known as Treliske Estates Limited and which would rent out the land to the golf club.Tenders for the design of the course were requested and Messrs. Colt, Alison and Morrisons plan for a 5,560-yard 18-hole course were accepted in November 1936. Once the decision had been made progress was swift. The Mayor of Truro, Mr. A. J. Roberts, cut the first turf on 18th December 1936 and on 29th April 1937 the first nine holes were completed. By December 1937 the course had grown to 18 holes.In 1939 the army requisitioned six holes for regimental purposes and a further area was taken on which to build an Italian prisoner of war camp. Success at recovering this land after the War was tempered somewhat by the need to use mine detectors to clear unexploded grenades from part of the course. By now finances were in dire straits and membership was down to 153. Undeterred, members set about reviving the club with a vengeance, running a large number of social and golfing activities to raise funds. The club flourished and in May 1947 the West Briton reported that except for tip-top courses one could not find better fairways and greens than in Truro.

  • The CourseWhat can you expect? You can look forward to a thoroughly enjoyable round of golf on a course that rewards good shots but penalises bad ones. Inevitably, given the proximity to the city of Truro, we do not have a surfeit of space. Nonetheless, the par 67, 5,339-yard, 18-hole course offers a great challenge to golfers of all standards and ages.

    The many trees and shrubs extend an open invitation for wayward balls and with many fairways boasting out of bounds markers you need to ensure you play safely and sensibly. Although only just over 5,300 yards you will find it difficult to play to your handicap as the fairways are tight, the out of bounds plentiful and the greens small and full of character.While our course has five par 3s, each offers its own unique challenge and cannot be considered anything of a respite. Indeed, it is not uncommon for hopes of a good score to founder at one or two of our shorter holes.The beautiful views? They are there to be enjoyed, certainly, but be careful they do not distract from the job at hand!
