Within walking distance of the hotel, Newquay Golf Club first opened in 1890. Overlooking the famous Fistral Beach, home to the world surfing championships, this 6000 yard Newquay Golf Course provides a great challenge.

20 minutes drive from the Hotel Victoria, Perranporth Golf Course offers lovely coastal views and offers six par 3 holes.

Ten minutes from the hotel on the A3059 Newquay to St Columb Major road, Treloy is a 9 hole par 32 course and is open from 8am til dusk.

Although St Mellion Golf Course is about an hour by car on the A38 towards Plymouth, it is well worth the drive. St Mellion is the home of the first Jack Nicklaus Course designed in Great Britain. In its short history it has held prestigious events such as the Benson & Hedges International Open. St Mellion is also home to the Old Course.
The Nicklaus is a superb and challenging course at 6,626 yards. It is suitable for lower and middle handicappers. The fairways are lined with trees and there are streams and water on several holes. The Old Course is also excellent, but 700 yards shorter.
