The new clubhouse at Falmouth Golf Club opened this week.

Falmouth Golf Club members enjoy a brand new clubhouse and shop with modern changing facilities, a members’ bar and terrace overlooking Falmouth Bay and the important new 18th hole.

It includes Above the Bay, where non-members and members alike can dine, drink and enjoy spectacular views of Falmouth Bay from the bar, restaurant or wrap around balcony and terrace.

The panoramic view looks out over Swanpool, Pendennis Castle and all the way to the lighthouse at St. Antony’s Head.

With a capacity of over 100 guests, Above the Bay is open to everyone, including non-members, and can host weddings, celebrations, business breakfasts, meetings and seminars with ample parking.

The building includes function rooms with their own well-stocked bar as well as a glass front and an outdoor area that allows guests to enjoy the breathtaking seascape all year round.

The focus is on the new 18th hole, which many consider the most spectacular finishing hole in the West, designed by leading golf course architect David Weller and built by specialist European Golf Services.

Since the hole runs towards the clubhouse, spectators can watch the sport from the clubhouse balcony.

Other facilities of the development include the spacious and bright golf changing rooms, which are accompanied by new shower rooms.

The development also includes a brand new golf shop to the right of the clubhouse, which PGA golfer Nick Rogers will run from Falmouth Golf Club, and an indoor golf training studio that he plans to open in early December.

Above the Bay has drawn admiration from everyone who has seen it, and local resident Keith Rashleigh called it “the best thing that has happened to Falmouth in years”.

Owner David Hughes says about the construction process: “It was a long road with lots of thrills and delicacies. I am happy to have finally made it and thank everyone who carried me and helped me on my way. “

David added that bookings for weddings and the rooms will be available for the next few weeks when the construction team makes final changes to the rooms and organizes a wedding planner for the club.

The building was designed by architects Heighway Field Associates according to the owner’s specifications and built for him by a subsidiary of Verto Homes.
