Lovely track to play on

Played here in May 2019 and Fairwood was definitely our favourite of the 3 courses we played around Swansea. Accuracy off the tee is important as I found out to my cost! It is tight in spots and trees hug the fairways on almost every hole. Greens were rolling nicely too.

Clubhouse is a quaint old building with a certain charm to it! Staff were helpful and friendly too.

Lovely parkland course

Played here on 5th August 2017 (Score 31 points, H/C 12.1)

Nice layout, especially on the back 9. Greens rolled true and consistent. The rough was also very well maintained, not even the 26 handicapper in our group lost a ball!

Good pint in the bar afterwards, and found the members to be friendly.

Lovely Course, well maintained!

Loved playing this course, I play regular weekends with a gentleman who's older than myself. This course is the flattest course we've played in South Wales area which suited him perfect. Many of the older members I was speaking to also said they joined because of how flat it was compared to other local courses! The fairways, rough and greens are very well maintained. Really loved this course, the holes are interesting to play and the members were all very welcoming. Thinking of joining myself very soon.

Nice big changing rooms on site, club house with a pool table, snooker table and tv's. Although the clubhouse is a bit dated it adds to the character of the facilities.

Lovely practice putting greens by the first tee, nets are also available.

Best of our week

returned last week after a months golf in the Mumbles, all the courses were good but Fairwood got top marks from the boys. Although they had 2 weeks of heavy rain prior to our round the course was excellent and a challenge to all.

Really nice course to play

Played on 2nd June 2017. Weather was nice which helps, but the course was immaculate in presentation. Greens were lovely to putt on. Lost a couple of balls in the lakes but that was my fault. Recommended!

The course was in fairly good nick considering the weather the few days before.
The greens are quite tricky to read but a beautiful course to play.

What a lovely course? This course is a hidden gem in beautiful condition. The club house is not the best but the course makes up for it. There is one major problem with the surrounding area and that is the constant barking from the kennels near by. If you can block this out I'm sure you will enjoy this course?

Played the course last week. It was certainly playable and drains well as we've had the wettest December on record for many years. All the greens were in play and were certainly of a good standard for winter golf. I enjoy this course in the summer and was surprised how well it plays in the winter, but some of the Par 4s played very long because there is no run off the tee.

The course was wet but handled the rain well, just made the greens very slippy and the putt didn't run true, but that can't be helped. Really enjoyed playing the course and the pro, bar staff and members we ran in to were really friendly and helpful.
Buildings themselves are a bit tired looking but if you're looking for a fairly flat (for the area at least) course that is not too tiring on the legs, then this is a great course to play and I'm sure it would be even better in the dry.
