Day Two and I’m making the 40-minute drive from Trevose over to St Enodoc. It’s been 25 years since I was last here and my palms really are sweating with anticipation. It’s another glorious Cornish day and the drive takes me through some beautiful countryside. I’m slightly ashamed to admit it but today I couldn’t care less. I’m a man on a mission. Once through the gate and signed-in I’m off to the first tee to take a glimpse and it’s a stunning view: the golden fairways that funnel through the dunes with green vegetation springing up here and there and the marker post on the brow of the hill in the distance.
I hit some balls to warm up and I’m on the tee at 8.40am ready for my 8.49am tee-off time. I peg up and with a swish of the new Adams Super S Speedline driver I’m testing I’m off. It’s not until after you have hit your second shot and reach that marker post that you can see the sea and today it’s there in all its splendour. There are not many places nor days in England when the sea looks the same azure colour as the Caribbean, but today is one of them and the white sails of boats bobbing out to sea from the harbour add an air of blissful tranquillity.
The members of St Enodoc have much to be proud of, among them the current greenkeeper – he’s done a wonderful job here. The greens are in perfect condition and like yesterday at Trevose they sparkle like emeralds amid the sand.
