Golfers Vote St Mellion #1

  • Double win for Crown Golf’s flagship resort.
  • Voted Best Golf Course and Best Hotel in West in Today’s Golfer Travel Awards

SALTASH, CORNWALL, UK - Readers of the UK’s best-selling golf magazine TODAY’S GOLFER have voted Cornwall golf destination St Mellion International Resort as #1 in two major categories, in a new survey published in January 2015.

In the TG Travel Awards 2015, in which thousands of golfers cast their votes for their favourite golf courses, hotels and resorts across the UK and Continental Europe, St Mellion was the runaway winner in the Best Golf Course and Best Golf Hotel / Resort categories for the West of England.

The Jack Nicklaus Signature Course at St Mellion won the ‘Best Golf Course in the West’ category by an overwhelming majority, with 50% of all votes cast – almost four times as many as the next nearest.

No other golf course in Europe dominated its regional vote as emphatically as the mighty Nicklaus course at St Mellion, described as “the finest inland course in the south west of England” by the magazine. The award cements its status as one of the UK’s most popular and challenging golf courses, having hosted many European Tour events since its creation by the 18-time Major winner in 1988.

And the 80-bedroom, four-star Resort Hotel at St Mellion dominated the vote for ‘Best Hotel / Resort in the West’, with over twice as many votes as the next-nearest candidate.

“St Mellion delivers on all fronts – both on and off the course” said Today’s Golfer. “The Nicklaus Course is in many ways is the ultimate test of parkland golf, and the comfortable accommodation with its health club, spa and fine dining offers value for money with its special offers and packages.”

On winning the Best Golf Course in the West award, St Mellion’s Golf Manager, David Moon PGA, commented: “This award is testament to Jack Nicklaus’ golf course design skills, and also to our magnificent course management team headed by Mike Bush, our Master Greenkeeper. We are truly delighted to be recognised by Today’s Golfer readers in this way, and our thanks go to all who voted, and also to the magazine.

“Each year we successfully entertain hundreds of groups of golfers from clubs across the UK who want to play St Mellion” continued Moon. “We are proud to be the resort of choice for so many other golf clubs, offering a popular weekend away for their members, and proving that you don’t need to get on a plane to play a truly world-class golf course. We have that here, right on your doorstep, with The Nicklaus Signature Course.”

Kevin McAlpine, General Manager at St Mellion International Resort, said: “Just over five years ago, our new contemporary Resort Hotel opened to great acclaim, and we have been privileged to win many awards since then”.

He continued: “Receiving this new award from the readers of the UK’s #1 golf magazine is a source of tremendous pride for the staff here at St Mellion, and we will strive to maintain our exceptionally high standards in 2015, throughout the Resort and its many facilities, in the hope of retaining our title next year.”
