What the club says: Located on the stunningly beautiful Isle of Anglesey, Holyhead Golf Club offers some of the best golf to be had in Wales.

Enjoying fantastic views towards the mountains of Snowdonia and situated only 1 mile from the port of Holyhead, gateway to Ireland, the course is a challenging heathland 18 hole championship course with some of the best greens to be found anywhere.

A glance at the scorecard tells you that the course measures just over 6,000 yards in length from the back tees ( 6090 yards, par 71. 5208 yards, par 72 for the ladies ). Moreover, from a distance, it looks relatively tame with only one serious hill to negotiate. Look a little closer however, and you will soon realise that not only are the fairways extremely narrow and quite undulating but the rough comprises of much gorse, heather and bracken giving rise to all kinds of challenges.

Then there is the wind which whips across the Irish Sea. Yes, a real test of golf, and thanks to architect James Braid who designed the course in 1912, 18 very different holes to savour.

What a hidden gem! Only played here as we missed the ferry but it was worth the inconvience. fairways and greens were excellent,the scenery was stunning and the staff and memberswere incredibly accomodating. This is easily the best value links course i have ever played. i will definitely miss the ferry again! - Jul 17 2014

3rd time playing this course. Very nice but very hard in the wind. Lost the plot after my birdie on 3 but string back 9 helped. Keep it in the fairway it helps

I've played Holyhead twice now - and still haven't got the hang of it! It's quite a tough course, some bling shots and placement is key. It is, however, a pleasant golfing experience and I'd probably play it again if I were in the area. Greens were a bit iffy but otherwise I'd recommend.

have never played this course in ideal conditions. It's either been very wet and windy or blisteringly hot. Close to the sea but more gorse and rough grassland than a links course. Lots of variety in the holes. Lots of trouble on windy days.

Lovely course, looking a bit tired around some of the bunkers but still a great course with intersting holes. Tough in the wind though!

Played this course in early March, an interesting course, particularly in the howling gale we played it in! However our round was spoiled by a number of obnoxious members who seemed to resent anyone else being on THEIR course. Personally whilst the course is challenging its not that great, there are many, many better courses in Wales....England and Scotland.....and as you are virtually on the Ferry why not skip across to Ireland where the courses are so much better and the welcome in a different league!!

this is a really nice course with plenty of cliffs, hills and gorse. There are also blind greens and you have to depend on the direction markers for your life at times. it is a coastal course but large parts of it get a bit of shelter from the wind. Because of the terrain it seems a lot longer than it is. Very friendly club and good food.

The course is in good nick, but there are far too many blind shots and very difficult without a course planner as the yardages are not clear either. I am guessing the course would be better the second time it is played as you would have some idea of where you was going. Not a patch on Bull Bay in my opinion.

Holyhead Golf Club is a wonderfully understated layout with threatening gorse and craggy rocks defining the course with a lovely coastal feel. Set in the shadow of Holyhead Mountain, it boasts some magnificent views out to sea on the early holes and some unusual characteristics. The sheer rock face running down the side of the 7th fairway is not the sort of feature you find on modern golf courses in the UK. With free draining soil it provides excellent value year round golf and due to the minimal footfall you are more than likely to find it in immaculate condition. You could be forgiven for thinking you are playing one of the slightly more expensive offerings on the Scottish coast when you come to the 13th and 14th here. A downhill par 3 and short par 4 are as delightful as they come with heavy gorse keeping you isolated from the other holes and clever use of the terrain that appears to have been made for golf.

we paid £48 we started at 2 45, we were told by a member after 3pm on sunday is £10, we played on a sunday !

great course very interesting holes bit hilly.

took over 4 hours to get round, we were stuck behind 3 lady members, they had numerous oppotunities to let us through.
2 groups of golfers gave up too slow and 1 group cut across us to miss the slow group.

beautiful course played on a rare calm day making it even more of a pleasure plotting a path between the rocky outcrops and gorse that protect and make the course a joy to play
