With permission, partially buggy assisted.Fidget19/06/2024
Left it until late to avoid golf balls but I think the course was closed due to excess water. Beautiful sunset but turning bitterly cold. Lovely views of the Plym estuary.Barbara Singer04/02/2018
Hp either the trig balancing on the top of the wall or 40 mts to the se on fairway mound.Campbell Singer04/02/2018
When we asked permission to visit the golf club manager ( thanks) offered to take us there in a buggy and we set off at high speed admiring superb views. The trig is within a retained hedge but the nearby green is slightly higher - the manager advised us this was man made.Denise 10/08/2017
On golf course, asked for permission to visit at the club house. Once the manager understood the reason for our request he enthusiastically offered to take us by golf buggy rather than risk us being hit by a golf ball. It was thus with 3 of us crammed onto the seat of a buggy we set off at speed bouncing over the fairways and greens. Sitting on the very edge of the seat injury from falling out seemed far greater possibility than any threat from golf balls! We were delivered to within a few feet of the trig point. Apparently this was the high point, the mound on the green to the S of the trig point is the result of landscaping carried out in building the golf course 9 years ago. Though only a few metres away it was another ride in the buggy to the new summit. Great views out to Plymouth Sound and estuary. In all an interesting visit to trig and Tump and many thanks to the enthusiasm of the club manager.RichardM10/08/2017
From minor road to W. Followed a stone wall through GC, a few golfers around, but no challenge. HP a little S of the wall (upon which the trig pillar sits) on one of the fairways (14th?).jonglew11/09/2016
On golf course HP just off the 14th fairway. Originally wanted to do this on a Sunday in June, but too many golfers. Early evening midweek much quieter.PeterD21/09/2015
