Overview:

How many golf courses can boast that their origins lay in the bar of a small, remote pub on a secluded beach nestling spectacularly along an isolated piece of rugged coastline, and with a world famous mountain range as its backdrop? Well, Nefyn and District Golf Course can do just that and what is more, today’s visiting golfers can break off from their round on the 16th hole and still enjoy the same hospitality at the Ty Coch Inn on the Llyn Peninsula as the Club’s founder members enjoyed over 100 years ago.

Visitors to Nefyn Golf Club, with its unique 26 hole layout, have the choice of playing The Old or The New Courses, though it is to be hoped that they allow themselves enough time to experience the challenge of both.

The Old Course consists of Holes 1-10 (Old) followed by Holes 11-18 (Old) on the world famous ‘Point’.  It opens with a series of 4 holes running parallel with and, at times, very close to the rugged coastline, before moving inland with some testing par 4s and a challenging par 3.  It then moves to The ‘Point’- eight holes on a narrow peninsula with fairways and tees perched above secluded coves and tiny inlets on one side and sandy beaches on the other.

The New Course consists of Holes 1-10 (Old) followed by Holes 11-18 (New).   These eight holes follow the natural contours of the headland and coastal inlet, confronting the golfer with some testing  par 4s, particularly the 15th, a long, sweeping right to left dog-leg with strategically placed bunkers.  All the holes enjoy the spectacular backdrop of the Snowdonia range.  On the way home, the 18th hole offers golfers a stunning panoramic view of the entire golf course.

Testimonials

“We only had rain at Kingsbarn, but that was a minor inconvenience.  Most days were sunny and perfect for golf.  We loved that we played some courses that we hadn’t played before.  And, of course, we were thrilled to get in the lottery to play St. Andrews on a beautiful sunny day.”
