Crown Golf Membership – Love Golf, This February …

Friday, February 16th, 2018

Crown Golf - Love Golf This FebruaryWith romance in the air this month, it got us thinking about all the reasons there are to love golf this February and our Crown Golf Membership ….

Now call us biased, but there is just so much about this wonderful sport to be enjoyed, it seems impossible to narrow it down to a few key reasons.

We’ve done our best though, and come up with five, fact-based (see, we can be impartial) reasons people get into golf, and stay in golf!

Crown Golf Membership – Love Golf – 1

It varies (No game is the same!) – If you’re an avid Golfer, you’ve probably heard it more times than you can count, that same old question ‘Don’t you get bored playing the same course all the time’?

Simply put, the answer is ‘no’! That’s because, even though the course may be the same, the conditions on the day, the people you play with and your own particular golf will be completely different.

No game is the same. Not only that but if you do like a change of scenery, there are golf courses at your disposal all around the country. Plus, a golf course is certainly more beautiful than a football pitch!

Crown Golf Membership – 2…

It’s steeped in tradition – Yep, in a world now full of contactless payments and self-driving cars, a round of golf is almost like taking a short time-out from the hustle and bustle.

Not only that, it’s a sport which requires certain etiquettes and respect, helping it teach us good manners and patience towards one another. There is something delightfully old-fashioned about this, which is another reason we love golf,  it’s a sport that requires a certain etiquette

Crown Golf Membership – Love Golf – 3…

It’s good for you! – No, you may not look at the average golfer and think ‘athlete’, however, there is a lot to be said for the effects Golf can have on overall health and wellness.

Being in beautiful surroundings and enjoying the fresh air can make you feel so much better mentally. It’s a time to forget about all other stresses in life and simply focus on the game.

Plus, according to ‘golf-monthly’, on average a golfer will walk over 6 miles during the course of an 18-hole round. With that kind of cardio, you’ll more than earn that post-round pint.

Crown Golf Membership – 4…. 

It’s social – You’ll rarely find a lonely Golfer. One of the greatest things about Golf often starts with the Clubhouse.

Crown Golf Membership - Love Golf This FebruaryYes, predominantly this is a place to socialise but more importantly, it’s a place where keen golfers can find playing partners who also love golf.

Regardless of age or ability, you’ll find a challenger who will bring out your competitive side, or simply help you to refine your skills. More serious?

You’ll also be able to sign-up to any club competitions in the clubhouse which will help take your game to the next level.

Crown Golf Membership – 5…

It’s a lifestyle – Meeting up with friends, old and new, Enjoying a great sport and be able to make yourself at home in a Clubhouse are just a few reasons people everywhere remain members of their Golf Clubs.

You don’t just love golf, you love the lifestyle and opportunities it provides.

The ability to travel and visit other courses, to constantly improve and challenge yourself and the access to fantastic facilities in the Clubhouses make Golf far more than just a sport.


Looking for another reason to love Golf? Currently, anyone who joins a Crown Golf Club before the end of February, receives a custom Putter fitting and a free Putter worth up to £80*.

Perfect for those who are wanting to get started, get back into the game or simply refresh their skills. Get in touch with a team at a club local to you and unlock your love of golf. *Or up to £80 towards a putter of choice.

Peter Alliss returns to St.Mellion…

Monday, February 22nd, 2016

Peter Alliss, the legendary ‘Voice of Golf’ will be making a welcome return to St Mellion in April to help celebrate the 40th anniversary of the iconic Cornish Golf resort…

Crown Golf February Offer

As part of the 40th Anniversary celebrations taking place throughout 2016 on Friday 29th April, St Mellion are hosting “An Evening with Peter Alliss” where he will relay some golfing anecdotes of his time as a top class golfer, his 40-years as the ‘Voice of Golf’ and of course, a few memories from his visits to St Mellion.

Alliss said, “Having spent many happy hours at St Mellion, both playing and working for the BBC, it’s with great anticipation that I look forward to revisiting and meeting up with old friends and having a very enjoyable evening to celebrate 40 wonderful years of golf”.

Peter Alliss’s first of many visits to St Mellion was in the late 1980’s when the Bond Brothers had the vision to contact the greatest ever golfer, Jack Nicklaus, and asked him to design a world-class golf course.

In 1987, the Jack Nicklaus Signature Course was officially opened to rave reviews with a unique ‘USA versus Great Britain’ match that pitted four multi Major winning golfing Legends.

For the USA the course designer Jack Nicklaus was accompanied by Tom Watson, playing against the British duo of Nick Faldo & Sandy Lyle.

This match was broadcast by the BBC Golf and was so successful it was played again the following year.

After playing the golf course for the first time, Nicklaus was so proud of the golf course he created he was quoted “potentially St Mellion is the finest golf course in Europe”.

In 1990, the first of six Benson & Hedges International Opens were played on the Nicklaus Course, all of which were broadcast live by the BBC with Peter Alliss at the helm in the commentary box.

These tournaments proved to be a great showcase for the golf course, with so many people watching all over the UK getting a chance to view so many unique and beautiful holes.

During those six years some of golf’s greatest ever players including Seve Ballesteros, Jose Maria Olazabal and Bernhard Langer played down the famous 18th finishing hole to win the prestigious European Tour event.

David Moon Golf Manager at St Mellion said, “We are delighted to be welcoming Peter Alliss back to St Mellion, the BBC and the wonderful commentaries of Peter Alliss were instrumental in getting St Mellion on the golfing map. Many of our Members, who are still here today, were such an integral part of those tournaments and they are delighted to have a true golfing icon here, to join with them to celebrate 40 very memorable years”.

St Mellion has continued to be a “golfing mecca” with a thriving Golf Membership and a new 4* star Hotel, Health Club and Spa, which attracts visitors from around the UK and abroad.

The accolades have also continued to be bestowed for both the golf course and the resort….

The Nicklaus Course is regularly featured in the Top 100 and has won “Best golf course in the West of England” on numerous occasions and the Resort has won Large Hotel of the Year and The South West Golf Resort awards.
