Highly Recommended 2018

What the club says: Visitors to Nefyn Golf Club, with its unique 26 hole layout, have the choice of playing The Old or The New Courses.

The Old Course consists of Holes 1-10 (Old) followed by Holes 11-18 (Old) on the world famous 'Point'. It opens with a series of 4 holes running parallel with and, a times, very close to the rugged coastline, before moving inland with some testing par 4s and a challenging par 3. It then moves to The 'Point'- eight holes on a narrow peninsula with fairways and tees perched above secluded coves and tiny inlets on one side and sandy beaches on the other.

The New Course consists of Holes 1-10 (Old) followed by Holes 11-18 (New). These eight holes follow the natural contours of the headland and coastal inlet, confronting the golfer with some testing par 4s, particularly the 15th, a long, sweeping right to left dog-leg with strategically placed bunkers. All the holes enjoy the spectacular backdrop of the Snowdonia range. On the way home, the 18th hole offers golfers a stunning panoramic view of the entire golf course.

One of my favourite venues

Played 27 holes in breezy but good conditions. Course in very good condition for the time of year. First visit for over 12 years - thoroughly enjoyed our day.

Phenomenal

The nine holes at The Point are the best I have ever played and I have been golfing for 30 years. Every hole breathtaking views and picture perfect. Gets better and better as you work your way to the tip of the land. Needed help from the coastguard in the tower to find the fifth tee such is the mad layout of this course. Every golfer needs to play here. To top it off the other 18 holes
are also in great condition and keep the interest up after the stunning point. Add to this friendly people and lovely food in the clubhouse and you?ll be wantBig to move to north wales .

Out of this world!!

If you visit North Wales and are playing golf Nefyn is a must. Split into three nines, the Front, the Point and the New i would recommend you play the front and the point - the views are to die for and the golf challenge spectacular. The front (yellow) nine give you a taste of what is to come on the point nine. There are 6 par threes on this course but this does not distract from the challenge. Excellent greens and the fairways were in good condition, this nine takes you from the club house to the coast and veers left along the coast, if your golf is poor just appreciate the views. If the wind is up this course will be a challenge for the best golfer. So onto the back nine, the point nine, full of challenge and surprise. Take the 10th, 200yds of fairway then a blind 2nd shot up and over a 100 ft. cliff wow! Follow this with a par three over the sea, followed by an optical illusion on the SI1 that challenges you to cut the corner and drop into the sea!! And then the highlight, teeing off from the top of an old lighthouse onto a par 3 green wow wow wow! This course was thoroughly enjoyed by every single golfer in our party from start to finish, if the wind is up the challenge is on, the final 2 holes test your accuracy with OOB one side the sea the other. This course is a must for any golfer. The only minor point i can raise is that the back 9 (point) is open to the public and a public footpath so have your wits about you. Nice friendly clubhouse with staff to match - would i go back - you bet!!

What a fantastic course. Beautiful ocean views to go with excellent fairways and greens. A big challenge for any golfer especially when the wind blows. There was a hole on the Old course that could do with a marker for driving but that apart it was great. Anyone visiting North Wales must play this course. Very memorable.

Fabulous course - a must play

Played here on Sunday 14th July and what a great golf club and course. The friendliness of all of the staff and members was amazing. We had a quick bite to eat before playing (bacon and mushroom bap) which was excellent.

We played a couple of holes behind a junior competition (good to see a club encouraging junior golfers) and we were not held up at all - we were round in 3 and a bit hours.

The course was in great condition with the greens being quick and true - an absolute pleasure to play. The only very minor criticism would be the lack of signage for the next tee on some holes. But this was very minor and did not in any way distract from our enjoyment of the course.

Overall this course should be at the top of your list for your golf holiday to the Llyn Peninsula.

A ?must play? course.

Always wanted to take the trip to Nefyn and play the course & what a treat it is. The weather was kind initially although the wind steadily increased. Playing the 9 holes down the point is incomparable to any previous course I?ve played. Popping down to the Ty Coch Inn for a cheeky pint after 15 holes was a novelty, but as we had the entire 9 hole loop to ourselves, it didn?t cause any issues. Overall a friendly reception, good food in the clubhouse, great course, stunning views with a pub thrown in!

Wonderful scenery, Gorgeous Course

Nefyn has been on my 'must play' list for some years, and the worry was that it wouldn't live up to expectations. On this occasion I'm happy to say that it did.

The bit of the course which seems to divide opions is the 'old 9' or Point, which heads out to sea and back over a narrow peninsular. Golfers share the route with lots of tourists there for the spectacular views, so make sure your insurance is up to date. Some of the footpaths stray way closer than you might like.

The holes are a bit quirky, and I spoke to someone after the round that clearly didn't enjoy the experience, but I thought it was awesome. There are so many great looking holes on this 9. The 4th has to be played over the rocks and cliffs to find the fairway, while the 5th is played from alongside the lighthouse. At weekends these holes are closed in the afternoon, but with 27 holes you'll still get to play 18 seperate holes.

The remaining 18 holes (The Front & New) appear to be far more standard fare, although still very enjoyable and in a spectacular setting. Fairways on these holes (or rather on the Front holes that I played) are wide and friendly, and a pleasure to play. They're also a lot flatter (but not flat) than the climbs and drops that you'll face on the Point.

I didn't really get to experience the club house, but the girl in the pro shop was very helpful and welcoming.

Did I love playing here? Totally! And if you get a chance, about 100 yards from the GC car park there's an ice cream parlour that definitely deserves your attention!

Course of dramatic beauty, not to be missed

The location is unique, the holes carved in the Peninsula for the old 9 holes are great. The views are breathtaking. Only downside were the greens being slow and only average. Highly recommended.

Youll struggle to ever play in a better setting. We played (of the 27 holes) the front 9 and the point.
The front 9 is in great condition, nice plush fairways, great greens, well positioned bunkers, brilliant layout.
The point is brilliant fun, very much unlike anywhere Ive ever played seeing as you play on the peninsula.
My one and only qualm with the course is the greens are different on the point to the rest of the course, still undulating but not quite the same quality.
Its still an absolute must to play and gets a solid 9/10, worth the 2 and a half hour drive without a doubt
