A little disappointed with the course, quite a lot of scruffy fairways, a few parts were so bad they should have been GUR but weren’t. At nearly £80 for 18 holes and a bacon butty, it’s way over priced. Played Conwy the day before - twice as good and cheaper.

This is a very challenging/tough course in a really attractive setting. Links with exceptionally deep and penal rough - no views of the sea as the dunes are really high but Harlech castle is a great backdrop. Shame about the derelict hotels adjoining the east few holes. Lad in the pro shop not very helpful and ended uo booking my round on the internet on my phone in the clubhouse just prior to playing

Good challenging Links

Played in high winds and the course got the better of me. Tight fairways, lovely true greens with good pace through the whole course. The front nine wasn’t as memorable as the back nine which has a number of interesting, beautifully constructed classic links holes with a few blind shots thrown in amongst the dunes.

Jewel of the North Wales?

We had great anticipation for this course as the highlight of our visit to North Wales. Quite easy to find but not very well signposted, for a signature course it is not well advertised. Friendly staff and very welcoming. Great practice areas with pitching and putting green. The course was an open links course that depends on the wind for its defense. The opening 12 holes are open and challenging with the rough very punishing should you stray there. Unfortunately another course where its fairways really suffered from last years drought and still struggling to recover. Greens in good condition but not as quick as you would expect for a course of this stature. The last 6 holes through the sand dunes bring this course to life, with the only view of the sea from the 16th tee. Overall a great challenge - is there a signature hole? Well not one that stood out for the 12 of us that played this course.

A mixed bag

Played last summer with my father - a gentle start through the first half dozen holes before the course starts to come alive. The back nine is more like the true links that we all know. We both played from the gents’ back tees (despite the odd looks from a couple of members questioning a teenage girl playing from gents’ tees) and it is a stiff test but enjoyable. The bar staff were helpful but sadly the pro shop were disinterested and positively disinterested; no strokesaver was available which is a glaring omission for a top course. Score 70 handicap +0.9 and my father shot 72 from handicap of 1.2.

Disappointing experience

Course is celebrated but slightly uninspiring. Despite location, no sea views. Derelict buildings beside the castle dominate some holes. Clubhouse unloved and needs a coat of paint. Feels like it needs a new broom everywhere.

Dissapointing

Underwhelming first few holes. Back nine is better (excluding the par 3 14th which is silly). Greens were good. View of the castle was nice but there are better links courses in North Wales. Pretty friendly people but not worth the green fee.

Superb course but club house and locker room etc looks very dated. Clubhouse is a not particularly attractive 1960s bungalow type of building. Club shop small. Having said all that, the chap behind the bar provided great service and even stayed open late for us to watch the Ryder Cup!

Great links golf - lovely setting and lucky to have only a mild breeze. Course must be brutal in strong wind. Perhaps a little rough around the edges in terms of course condition but that really only added to the charm. Back nine stretch of 14-17 fantastic testing golf holes. Finished off with a great bacon butty in the clubhouse.
