Dissapointing

The club advertises the course to visitors with pictures of the peninsula ('point') part of the course. There are nice views but, believe me, it is not worth the pain of the time it takes to play that part of the course. It took ages to play and spoilt our round.

The "Peninsula Course". Nefyn again.

Right ok. Where do I begin. The front 9 (yellow) is quite simply some of the best 9 holes of golf that I've played. Second only to the back 9 of the Old Course. Absolutely stunning. Immaculate golf course with amazing scenery. 10/10.

Now to the "Old Nine". The peninsula course (Blue). The one that everybody looks at on the website. Probably the reason you're reading this review now.

DONT PLAY IT. It is not a Golf course. It is a track for walkers, beach goers, dog walkers and the general public with a few blue flags dotted around. Golf is near impossible. There should be more emphasis by the club to inform golfers of this fact especially when you're paying a minimum of £48.00 to play and in our case driving 2 and a half hours to get there. I realise that the golf club have no power over the general public on public land even if it does go right through the golf course but if I had been told to what extent the public encroach on your game I would have chosen not to play that course. This is exactly why the club have built another 9 holes, presumably to appease their members.

It spoilt my round and my day. I left the course very annoyed and vowing never to return.

I don't want kids running across my fairway as I'm about to hit an approach shot.
I don't want dogs off leads running across my green as I'm about to putt.
I don't want people shouting in my back swing.
I don't want sarcastic comments by topless men when I'm standing in a bunker.
I don't want to be teeing off worrying about how many people I'm going to put in the A&E that afternoon.

It honestly got that ridiculous after 4 holes (13 overall) we decided to scrap our competition and just play to get the round over as quick as we could.

My advice would be to play the old nine and the new nine and give the peninsula nine a miss. There comes a point where the scenery and views become irrelevant when you're that frustrated over the state of affairs on the golf course. Besides the other courses have more than enough scenery to blow you away. The peninsula course should be offered as a freebie when you pay for the other 18 in my opinion or closed as a golf course and left as a public path to the beach which is pretty much what it is anyway.

second time ive played Nefyn, we were not informed the head was closed so had to play the new course, very samey samey. Had organised months before so had to play. If we knew the head was closed we would have played elsewhere.

Wonderful views - better than any other course I have played.
Greens poor and seemingly living with several types of grass present.
Only played 11 holes (missed the best of the course) as it took 3 hours 20 minutes to play 11 !!!!
Clubhouse nice.
Wouldn't go back unless I had to - might go to the beach there though !!!

Fabulous views and at times intruiging and testing golf. Much of the front 9/10 holes are relatively plain albeit with some wonderful views and difficult cliff edge drives and carries. The Old back 8 holes are quirky and something every golfer should try. You may not want to return to N

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.

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

Special location worth visiting to play

Golfshake Team ReviewLucky enough to play all 3 9s so had the full Nefyn experience playing the front and old 9 twice over 2 days. The course is in an amazing location on the North coastline of the Lleyn penisular with some fantastic views due to the location of Nefyn and with the old course extending out into the almost another mini penisular which it is famous for. So firstly this is a course that should be on everyone's list to experience the location, setting and views !

The club is super friendly with an excellent hospitality from the staff within the clubhouse and the pro shop. Practice facilities were also very good with a putting area, 3 bay range and some outdoor bays. Clubhouse a little dated but ok and you are visting for the course anyway. When we played in Aug 2017 we found the course in pretty decent condition although the greens on the old weren't quite as good as those on the front and new but good nonetheless.

The new - decent layout with lots of hole variations but my least favourite of the 3 9s. This 9 is slightly more inland but you still get exposed to the elements and the wind comes into play.

The front - this is the links part with holes 2 - 5 hugging the coast line and providing a great test of golf. This was probably my favorite of the 9s (handicap 18) due to the layout, test on offer and my ability to play the course. Nice variation of holes and in excellent condition with some great views through out the round.

The old - you just have to play this to experience this but be warned it is tough on 2 fronts. Firstly this is the famous 9 that goes out on the mini penisular towards the lighthouse and then back again so the views are pretty awesome and the conditions can be tough if the wind gets blowing. The tougher of the 2 challenges is actually avoiding the walkers on the main path to the beach, beach bar and RNLI facilities. The first 1st and 9th play either side of the start of the main path, the 3rd and 8th come back with the path on the side and the 6th plays up towards the path - so you really need to be on your game, walkers tend to ignore shouts of fore ! That said, this is a course that you just have to play at least once and I was fortunte enough to play twice. It is also quite a short 9 so you don't need your driver that often but useful if you take the tiger line on the 4th across the cliff top. Pretty quirky set of 9 holes but this is due to the setting and where the holes are located which actually makes this pretty special and a must play bucket list course.

All in all an excellent course well worth a visit but watch out for the walkers on the old, they pop up everwhere ! you do also get the odd walker on the front but these tend to stick to the coastal path and no where the same in number as the old.

If you are thinking of a trip to play golf in Wales get this one on your list.

Finally ticked this one off.
The ultimate marmite course. There is no course anywhere with a better setting. Can see the bay from every hole on the blue and yellow nines. The best surprise is how good the yellow 9 is , running along the cliff top.
What you make of the quirky holes on the point will define it for you. I enjoyed them, the stroke 1 is great, nothing wrong with the lighthouse par 3 or the par 5, probably does need a better marker post on the first.
Facilities aren't the best, slightly shabby clubhouse and range, pro was nice though. The red nine is fine but obviously isn't going to compare to the original course.
Trump should have bought this over turnberry. I loved it, there are enough good holes for it to deserve its ranking
