Crown Golf has completed the £20m refurbishment of its flagship property and St Mellion International Resort has reopened, confirming its status as South West England’s premier golf and leisure destination.

With Jack Nicklaus’ first ‘signature’ golf course in the UK extensively refurbished, and restored to European Tour standard in advance of hosting The English Open in 2011, golfers from around the world can now enjoy one of Europe’s highest quality playing experiences at St Mellion.

And a new 80-bedroom four-star standard landmark hotel, with conferencing and leisure facilities, has opened at the resort, meaning that Crown Golf’s most prestigious property is now fully equipped to realise the dream of its original founders – to create a world-class championship golf resort in the heart of the south west of England.

Crown Golf’s owner Jeff Chapman came from Australia to attend the press launch and said,” In the new revamped and revitalized St Mellion we have a world-class facility. It’s a good news story for the 30 – 40 million people who live no more than 4 hours drive away and now have St Mellion on their horizon.”

Situated near to Saltash in Cornwall, close to the villages, beaches and attractions for which the county is famed, but also within twenty minutes’ drive of Plymouth’s railway and airport, St Mellion offers easy travel links via Air Southwest, a low-cost airline offering daily scheduled flights into Plymouth from 11 airports across Great Britain & Ireland.
