Thanks to Ms V J Young for the following -

“I recall that as a schoolgirl I stayed on a farm called Penrith Farm, St Martins-by-Looe and the land adjacent had previously been a golf course, but turned over to agriculture due to the war. The golf professional was then farming it. He lived in a small bungalow up a path close to where we were staying”
