ANNIVERSARY celebrations at St Mellion International Resort will reach a climax next month with a Festival of Golf and the launch of a special deal to celebrate 25 years of the famous Nicklaus Signature Course.

The Nicklaus 25th Anniversary Deal, at £119, is only available in July and August, and gives golfers 18 holes on the Nicklaus Course, 18 holes on the Kernow Course (the resort's second European Tour course), a room in St Mellion's Four-Star Resort Hotel, a three-course dinner, and a Cornish breakfast, plus full use of St Mellion's Health Club which includes three pools.

David Moon, the resort's director of golf, said: "At this time of year The Nicklaus alone carries a green fee of up to £85 during the week, and £95 at the weekend.

"So we think that playing both courses, with dinner, bed and breakfast in our hotel – and a swim and gym if you're feeling energetic – for only just a little more money, is a fantastic deal."


Alongside the special offer, St Mellion is running a special week-long Festival of Golf in mid-July, designed to encourage golfers from all over the UK to experience the atmosphere.

The 25th Anniversary St Mellion Festival of Golf runs from Sunday July 7 to Saturday July 13, and events include:
