Horse Riding & Golf
Indulge your passion; or try something new
If you love a round of golf on a course of breathtaking beauty, then you'll be very much at home on Scilly. On St. Mary's you’ll find England’s most south-westerly golf club with sensational sea views across the harbour and out towards Bishop Rock in the distance that have the ability to distract all but the most conscientious golfers (!). It's open all year to members and non-members and afterwards, you can relax in the fully-licensed and friendly clubhouse.
The course length is 5,942 yards with a par of 73... 18 hole competitions means playing the nine holes from 18 tees. The signature hole is the short 109 yard 4th, which requires an iron shot into a basin from a gorse surrounded tee spectacularly poised about the cliffs!
Likewise, here on Scilly you can indulge in some extra special horse-riding. Where else in England can you hack along deserted white sandy beaches lapped by crystal clear waters?
The fully licensed and BHS approved riding centre is located on St Mary's, minutes from Pelistry beach. Whatever your standard, join organised treks (hosted by instructors) along coastal bridleways, country lanes, farm tracks and white sandy beaches. All the horses are quiet and very well mannered to ensure you enjoy a ride to remember! With their four legged friends ranging in size from tiny Shetlands to magnificent Shire horses, there are opportunities for children and adults of all ages and abilities.
