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.

A diamond

Played this course a couple of weeks ago and Nefyn is one of the best courses I've played. The fairways were in excellent condition and the greens were superb with a few slopes and difficult pins but fair. Amazingly the bunkers were also very good and better than most courses post Covid. The wind blows hard on the first few holes which have amazing views high about the coastline. I would certainly recommend this course if you are visiting the Nefyn area. The club house also did good food and drink.

What an absolute gem

WOW ...... we were lucky to have had great weather and a fairly quite golf course with our 9.30am tee time. An absolutely stunning golf course with equally stunning vista's. Can't speak highly enough of this course which includes both the "point" as your back nine or other configuration but the point really does leave you in awe of the spectacular scenery and quirky layout of the holes. Only criticism is more against fellow golfers not bothering to repair pitch marks which on alot of the greens were everywhere. Such a shame that the greenkeepers put so much pride into this course but some golfers don't repay it with showing some respect for them and the course itself. Cant wait to return and return and return.....

Bucket List

One of the bucket list. Truly stunning course. The Yellow Course was a fantastic test with breathtaking backdrop. Sun was shining but the wind was wicked. We played the Old Course for the back nine, amazing and worth doing but it's an experience rather than a back nine. Many blind shots, shots into the wind over cliffs, no idea where we were going on a couple of hours but brilliant fun and great photos! It's a great day in a stunning place!

Fantastic views

The views on the Old course are simply amazing. Fortunate to have sunshine and no wind but cannot imagine what it would be like to play in bad weather. Teeing off from a Coastguard tower doesn't happen everyday! The paths were really busy with beach goers so had to be careful teeing off, and one walker picked up one of our balls! The Front 9 was more like a goal course, again with some great views. Very enjoyable.

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!

Is it as good as the pictures?

You've seen the pics, but you're wondering if there are just four spectacular holes and the rest is a potato field.... let me set your mind at rest. Absolutely stunning, the whole thing. By miles the most spectacular clifftop course in the U.K., which is to say in the world. Seriously more scenic than Turnberry, you can see the sea from all 27 (28) holes, even the new nine. The only regular criticism seems to be the public path down the middle of the old nine. Sure, if you're a nervous nelly who is going to be put off by one man and his dog, you're gonna struggle, but my advice is just go with the flow, if you hit someone deny everything. The course really needs some wind, not much rough and mostly flat large greens, bunkers inconsistent and the clubhouse is not exactly Trump central (no fountains) but functional enough. Play it. Drink in the views. Take some selfies.

Beautiful but dangerous - excellent 1-11, amazing but poor 12-18
I had wanted to play this course for years, the photos I'd seen of the old course truly stunning. The first holes along the coast are amazing, I'm talking same league as Tralee and Turnberry here for setting and I was really looking forward to starting the old course on the 11th which steps out onto the amazing peninsula.
And here was the disappointment. What is not advertised is that this whole course is equally open for walkers and tourists, who in particular make their way out to the lookout point at the end of the peninsula. It was almost impossible to play as parents and their kids wandered along the fairways, across the greens etc. Even assuming you're hitting straight and onto fairways and greens only, you still have a pretty high chance of hitting a pedestrian, no point shouting "fore", some 6 year old kid won't know what it means
Real shame, as the course itself is excellent, but I would not go back and take the risk

Championship 18 hole course with bonus 9 holes on peninsula. Well worth playing, course in fantastic condition, greens quite slow but in great nick, friendly clubhouse and pro shop.
Sea views are something special, if the wind is blowing it's quite a challenge.
