“Disappointing - given the hype”
Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

Played as part of a golf tour, booked as it's listed as one of the best in Wales. Having played the others above it I can say it's not even in the top 10. The clubhouse and welcome is great but didn't.t go well by members shouting to each other over the 1st tee, I didn't need to know that 'Rob is gonna be late', during my backswing!
The course is set in one of the most stunning I've ever played but is let down by the cow dung, electric fences around the green, terribly placed marker posts and awful fairways.
Play it again - no, but for £25 it's worth it just for the views.

“GCJ8”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Lovely views and probably worth a visit for these alone but did not really appreciate the course at all.All greens protected with a wire surround no doubt to keep the cows off but these can wander freely into bunkers and they do and leave quite a mess.Fairways very poor and signage from one hole to the other not at all clear so for the visitor a constant request to members as to where the next tee is?

“Incredible test in magnificent location”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

For a British golf experience, this will stick in my mind forever. Highly recommedn this to anyone who wants a VERY difficult challenge. Probably the toughest course I have played.

Tee boxes are about the only flat bits of land on the course! Supposedly great drives ending up in the rough all the time. And some of the putts!!!

Condition of the greens was superb, maybe a little slow though

Spectacular views all over the place

Very tiring (hilly)

Blind shots everywhere

Very friendly members

“Must do if you like golf”
Reviewed July 24, 2013 via mobile

This course you will never forget, great holes, very hilly, superb views, a true test of golf. We played it on a hot July late afternoon, when the ball just did not stop, neither on fairways, or on greens... Or maybe it was us? Will go back here if I can, at £ 25 pp twilight rate it is a bargain for a top 5 course in Wales.
