Absolutely fantastic venue

What a gem! I brought a society to play and all 16 of us had an fantastic day out. We paid £37.50 each for The Nicklaus package which included bacon rolls and tea/coffee on arrival followed by 18 holes then a 2 course meal in the restaurant afterwards. Literally every aspect was of the highest quality. A warm welcome on arrival, accompanied by delicious bacon baps. We then made use of the free driving range tokens (included in the package) then played the course. The only thing which took the shine off of the course were the boggy conditions but given the record breaking amount of rainfall we’ve had these last few weeks, it’s hardly surprising. Boggy fairways aside, the course and layout was absolutely stunning. Then onto the food after. I had the mushroom and nut Wellington followed by a cheesecake. Both dishes were brought out promptly and were of a fantastic quality. Lastly, I thought the practice facilities were top quality and the club house and pro shop were on par, possibly even better Thank you for hosting us Machynys. What a golf club!

An outstanding course, one of the best in Wales. The quality of the course made it challenging for a high handicapper like me but it was still very enjoyable.

Great challenge

The course was in great condition and the greens were very true. The 16th is a long slog into a strong wind but a fantastic challenge. Well worth a visit and a good test of your golfing skills.

Amazing course

I was blown away by this course (literally). For £25 twilight you could not find better value in the UK. I couldn’t believe the quality of the course, every hole was interesting, greens challenging and lovely layout. It was outstanding. The wind blew 15-20mph constant but wasn’t too much.. I imagine it’s hard work on a cold rainy day though.

Bungs Tour day 1, Heavy Rain in 40 mile an hour wind, made this round somewhat difficult. Nice venue would like to play again in better conditions.

Wet, wet, wet

Course very wet and not worth ?40 in such conditions. Not courses fault as very heavy rain but 50% refund would have been appreciated or maybe 50% green fee discount on next visit.

An excellent course with excellent facilities. Great 1st and 18th holes with the par 3 5th a gem. Lovely views and setting. Only let down are the greens need some TLC. Lots of bumps and bruises on them that make putting a lottery.

Played here 3 times in 2 days and in strong winds and some very heavy rain. The greens were superb and consistent across all 18 holes. The fairways were very wet with a few patches of standing water. Overall an excellent course and I look forward to playing here again.

Could be a lot better. It's neither a links course or a parkland course, which makes its identity confusing. Clubhouse is nice but expensive and used by many others than just golfers
