Frustrating

I know its been a pretty wet and particularly cold winter but this course never seems to improve. Its a long and difficult layout with some great holes. The issue is with the faiway conditions and pockets of water pools that make the going particularly tough. Best wait until the summer month to play it again.

Great

Great course. Tough for high handicappers but a good fair challenge. Heavy underfoot but that’s wales for you. Greens in good condition and fairway. Rough was tough. A good day.

The Vale Resort National

This course was absolutely stunning. The conditions were ideal. Some long par 5's but not to hard if you stayed on the fairway. Enjoyable to play. Everything in my opinion was perfect today.

Perfect weather

Enjoyed the challenge however round was marred by slow play.

The course was in great condition and weather was extremely good. It is always a challenging course but I found it very frustrating to be held up by some very poor and slow golf by other golfers on the course. Some of the golfers could only hit the ball 50-75 yards and surely should not be playing on a course of this calibre - very disappointing.
