Nice course

Really enjoyed the course some challenging tee shots and greens held up well considering we picked the wettest weekend of the year to play! Back nine has some really good holes with the 16th being the best! Food good and welcome In The bar top notch will definitely play again when dry

stunning course

hi being an older golfer of 71 years young i was a bit nervous about changing golf clubs, i need not have worried, from stepping onto the first tee to being one of the boys [and participating in the banter] took about 30 seconds and it only took that long because i had to change my hearing aid battery. seriously if you are looking for a top golf club and friendly people then look no further than pontardawe. good golfing rgds richard james ash

A hidden gem is what Peter Alice said and I agree, but I was a member for 5 years. Always well manicured with very good greens. Beautiful panoramic views from the 16th hole. No bad holes and some very good ones, lots of birdie opportunities. Getting round there is a good work out especially if you're carrying!

Played this course twice in a week and it was outstanding form tee to green. Lovely pint of Cobra and Coors in the club house, and the home made curry and chips for £5 perfect to end a round.

Pontardawe, is the best kept secret in South Wales. Club Championship had to be postponed the weekend I played, due to the weather preventing the ground staff from preparing the course!! Goodness knows how good it will be when they can. It was absolutely outstanding. Greens quick and true, fairways like carpets with clear definition between first and second cut and a great atmosphere in the clubhouse. Golfers breakfast pre round is highly recommended.

Paid just £12 to play on Monday 7th April; but heavy mist came in after just 2 holes limiting visibility to just 100 yards at most holes. Also heavy and non stop rain meant most fairways and several greens were unplayable.

However, the course design is very good, with very few long walks to tees and very few climbs. Pick of the holes are the 3rd, 6th 12th and of course 16th.

Very friendly welcome in clubhouse, shame about the weather. Course would be excellent value in Summer

Contrasted continues to impress. Yet more drainage work has been carried out over the winter. The greens and tees were incredible, given the recent wet weather. If you haven't played Pontardawe, you really are missing out.
