Man the decks and weigh anchor as you embark on a brand new adventure golf course through the Golden Age of Piracy.
You’ll be transported back 300 years to begin your golfing adventure aboard the wreck of the Royal Anne Galley – a pirate hunter’s ship that really did wreck off the coast of Cornwall in 1721. Uncover the secret hidden doorway to escape to dry land and start your journey through the mystical caves and murky streets of Eighteenth Century Cornwall.
PIRATE TREASURE TROVE
Venture into the county’s coves and uncover the secrets they hide. Seek out pirate plunder and track down ‘Hooligan’s Hideout’ where beastly buccaneers and rowdy rogues can be found lying low whilst camping out in Cornwall.
CORNISH LAND OF LEGEND
Journey into the mists of time and meet some of the county’s most famous residents, the mighty King Arthur, born and raised in Tintagel castle by magical wizard Merlin. Be sure to watch out for the ‘little people’ of Cornwall – the mischievous piskies known as Spriggans can be seen hiding amongst the rocks as well as the Cornish Knockers, usually found in the many tin mines, knocking to guide the Cornish miners. No need to fear the monstrous giant Bolster – he’s been tricked by the legendary St Agnes and is fully focused on proving his devotion to her… even if it kills him in the process!
A hot spot for Cornish smugglers, swashbucklers, and outcasts. Navigate the twists and turns of this secret passage and meet the famous John Carter, the mischievous smuggler known as The King of Prussia. Discover the fascinating piratical double-life of Lady Mary Killigrew, and look out for Black Joan the despicable smuggler of Looe Island.
TOWAN BLYSTRA DOCKS
Before Newquay had its ‘new quay’, the town was known as Towan Blystra, a notorious pirate ‘hang’-out – the docks are full of captured buccaneers displayed in gibbets as punishment. Be sure to pose for a photo in the village stocks before venturing onward!
Swagger into the local tavern, originally introduced to Pirate’s Quest to mark the 300th Anniversary of the famous Captain’s death in 2018. The Tavern now acts as a base for pirate recruitment and a place to discover the surprising truth about Captain Blackbeard himself.
THE LOCKER OF DAVY JONES
For those brave enough, grab a glow in the dark golf ball and descend into the depths of Davy Jones’ Locker, a creepy graveyard of lost ships and souls that serves as a final resting place for history’s most dastardly seafarers, from Ned Low to Eustace the Monk! This section can be easily avoided by choosing the alternative safe route through The Rogue’s Gallery.
THE CAPTAIN’S SHIP
Finally, you’ll board the crew’s grand galleon! Steer the ship clear of the cliffs to avoid the notorious Cornish Wreckers, and learn the surprising history of ‘walking the plank’. Then explore below decks and peek through the portholes to discover the Sunken City of Lyonesse and the legendary Mermaid of Zennor.
