3/7 Watch out for the golf balls....!Fergalh12/04/2015
Visited en-route for Scilly Isles. Parked at entrance to comms compound S of 187m spot height, across minor road and through field gate onto Looe golf course. Lots of golfers about today, care needed as no RoW. Trig first then approx 200m to HuMP summit, located next to 11th green.jonglew11/09/2014
Parked by aerial, crossed gate into course and strolled up over a fairway to rough/tree covered area (about 200m) where summit is. Skirted back around on a sunny morning with a few golfers about to trig, on a mound. No-one seemed bothered I was there and I was discrete as ever.nordicstar19/04/2014

Quick bag from lane on western side on way home from annual pre-Easter Cornwall holiday. Visited both mound and trig. Golfers friendly!marktrengove22/04/2011
The challenge of the day on a golf course. Luckily (?) thick mist and drizzle made for the ideal time to tiptoe across the fairway from a gate to the top in a thicket (not again) of bracken and heather and gorse. D trampled through it claiming every lump I obligingly followed. We also found the lower trig. No golfers about today . D filmed our secret wanderings in the thick gloom.Chris Pearson10/08/2010
