Ahhhh, Cornwall. Home of the heavenly cream tea and the nation’s finest brewery at St Austell. What about their infamous pasties washed down with a pint of cider? Or some decadent fudge or gloriously creamy Cornish ice cream? Heaven in the West Country, but it’s probably best to get out and get some exercise and fresh air with all those calories!
No problem, Cornwall does the Big Outdoors with flamboyancy, flair, and awe. Especially for our Footgolf fanatics, you couldn’t ask for a more glorious playground. So here is the Footgolf Frenzy’s Guide to the top Footgolf spots in the wonderful county of Cornwall.
For Those Going All the Way – Cornish Style
If you’ve committed yourself to a Cornish holiday and you want to take in a trip to Land’s End, be mesmerised at the Minack Theatre, or be humbled by St Michael’s Mount, then Truro is going to be a natural stop off point. Here, perfect for a family holiday activity, is Killiow Footgolf. Fun, friendly, and ideal for beginners and the smaller members of your party, this 9 hole course is open every day. There is also Goal in One situated at Bodmin, which is also an ideal stop-off point en-route to different locations in Cornwall.
For Those Doing the Cornwall Classics
If you’re just dipping your toes over the Cornwall-Devon border, and are attracted by the headline act of the Eden Project, then it’s a treat to know that the Cornwall Football Golf is also near to St Austell. If you need to cool off from the heat of the Eden Project Rain Forest, or are looking for something to complement your trip, then why not don your trainers and enjoy a spot of Footgolf? What’s more, there are two Footgolf courses here. Both are 9 holes, a perfect length for a holiday round, one called Hillside and the other is Parkland. The countryside around here is simply spectacular, so whether you’re visiting the Eden Project, or even the Lost Gardens of Heligan, pop Footgolf on to your agenda too.
For The Surfer Dudes
If the waves and sand of Newquay are calling you, and you’ve loaded up the car with surf shorts and bikinis, then Newquay Footgolf deserves your attention. Nestled between Porth Beach and Watergate Bay, you get something with this Footgolf course that you don’t normally see in the UK: a hybrid with a crazy golf feel. Often Footgolf courses are buddies with their big brother golf courses, but Newquay Footgolf is a dedicated 9 hole Footgolf course that will see you negotiating obstacles such as crab pots and fishing boats, instead of bunkers and water features. Right on the beach it’ll make a nice change from 24/7 beach life. What’s more, you’re only an hour from Tintagel, so you can go and make believe like Camelot.

Cornwall is a wonderful holiday destination, and it focuses on fun and relaxation in abundantly beautiful surroundings. It’s therefore no surprise that Footgolf is taking off there. So enjoy another pasty with no worries about how you’re going to burn it off. Footgolf is the answer.
