A great variety of holes

This course has a very different front and back nine - the front being more parkland in nature and the back nine a links style, with the back nine being more challenging than the front nine. The design is good as are the green and the pot bunkers something you really need to keep out of. Course signage could be improved and the welcome from the Pro was not what I expected - I don’t really think he wants golfnow customers and frowns if you are not a member of a club. Despite this there was a good welcome from members

Really enjoyable afternoon. Nice combination of parkland and links. Fairways were rather bare in patches due to very hot summer but that was explained before we set out. Greens were excellent. Will definitely return.

unwelcoming course and club

The back 9 looks stunning but is not designed to be enjoyed by the likes of me. The margin for error is too small and the penalties too severe - 5 yards from the fairway on many holes and you'll never see the ball again. This is a typical H S Colt design where you stand on too many of the tees without being able to make out where the intended landing area is. One or two holes like that on a course add variety but here it is overdone to the point where the enjoyment is removed. You need to play the course a number of times before you can have fun because you need experience of it to have any idea where you're supposed to be aiming - as if hitting the ball where you're aiming isn't hard enough when you can actually see where you are trying to hit it! I actually hit the ball quite well for most of my round, but the constant inability to make out the target area (particularly difficult where the inner loop of holes crosses the main course causing extra confusion with extra fairways and tee boxes) and a lack of marker posts to offer any visual guidance at all, detracts from the experience. Such a shame as the dunes offer a stunning setting for what could be so much more enjoyable golfing terrain, as it is at many other courses along the welsh coastline. Only the brilliant green complexes redeem the course. They are brilliantly contoured, and the mounds and hollows around the greens provide a much more enjoyable but challenging test of the short game. If only the course offered a similar balance of enjoyment and toughness for the long game. Sadly it is skewed much too far to the tough end of the spectrum to be enjoyable for a 19 handicapper. This appears to suit the club though, as I was made to feel like a second class citizen for booking online as a visitor unaffiliated to any club. Surprise was expressed by the pro and the captain when they learned I am not a member anywhere. Why shouldnt someone who chooses to play at various courses rather than the same one every week be able to conduct themselves appropriately on a golf course! I was made to feel that they thought I probably would leave divots everywhere and play slowly, because I don't belong to a club, and that they only wanted members of other clubs to play their course, and not just any keen golfers who are prepared to pay a green fee. Well I certainly won't be rushing back, there are many more enjoyable places to play than here.

Great course - I had a similar welcome from the Pro, I don’t think he actually wants any golfnow customers

Windy weather

Test of golfing ability.

All holes have different challenges but hitting your selected target area key. Putting distance, speed and alignment a must. Holes 11,12,13,14 very challenging. Allowance for the wind a must.

Great bank holiday golf

Booked it for bank holiday Monday , the course was surprisingly quiet and we had no one in front or behind which was great ,we were very lucky with perfect golf conditions. The course is tough but fair and really puts your golfing mind to to test ! Some huge fairway bunkers and massive greens and great variety of holes ! Well worth the price for this course one of my favourites !

Perfect day out on a super golf course

Thoroughly enjoyed. I am in the process of obtaining my handicap certificate. Managed to stay out of the many bunkers. With perfect weather the course played kindly.
Straight to the top of the list of favourite courses.
Also very walkable, with short distnces between greens and the next tee.
Friendly welcome.
Perfect day out on a golf course.

P & K - superb

Played P& k for the first time in20 years - why have I left it so long i do not know. What a great course this is. Full of interesting holes, fairways were excellent and greens very good.
Back 9 is a real test but very fair, with only one blind hole.
Thoroughly enjoyed and the members were friendly and welcoming.
Wish I could play there all of the time .
Will definitely be back. Great value .

Fantastic links golf course.

it was over twenty years ago I played this golf course and it didn't disappoint.now its on the tee app it's probably one of the best golf courses you can play for only twenty pounds..if you've never played a links course before its well worth the journey.
Ever hole has its own challenge with humps and bumps and greens to match.
Being a links golf course its pretty its easy to get around with no steep hills to climb.
Grab yourself a bargain and play this course,you won't be disappointed...

Amazing.

Links course at its best. All the rain we have had and the course was bone dry. Wind blew as expected. Only downfall was greens had been spiked. But that is winter golf for you. Loved it loved it loved it. Can't wait to play it again.
