Made up a 4 ball with 3 sheep.
Great views from several holes.Sheep and horses for company. Some interesting holes and a good test of golf. Two groups of 4 balls let me play through on the back nine so managed 18 in 3 hours carrying.
Greens in great condition,slow compared to my home course but true.
Stunning location with very helpful and friendly staff. A mixture of some quite easy holes and some very tough ones.
Greens were receptive and fairways really good (which was impressive considering sheep and horses roam the course).
The views of the bay make it well worth a visit, but I wouldn’t fancy it on a windy day!
Great first time experiencev
My first time playing this course and it certainly won’t be my last .The course was in great condition and it’s a bit unusual to have ponies watching you on most holes however that adds to the whole ambiance of this course .As for the views over Swansea Bay they cannot be beaten .
Friendly welcome from the people here both staff and members .
Lovely course, really unique with fantastic views. Very different experience playing with an audience of farm animals (fenced off don't worry!)
Early morning holiday round
On holiday nearby so spotted a weather window and appreciated being able to book an early morning time online. Teed off in brilliant sunshine and the gentlest of breezes with no-one around - idyllic. It is an amazing setting and the views, landscape and wandering sheep and horses all add to the experience. The course itself reminded me of Southerndown and aspects of nearby Pennard and I enjoyed several front 9 holes - such as the sweeping downhill par 5 3rd, the tough uphill par 4 6th, and the downhill approach to the 9th which conveniently returns to the clubhouse. The back 9 is arguably even better and it certainly has the best view over Mumbles and Swansea Bay from the 17th tee - a challenging par 3 where the ball has to be flown all the way over a gorse filled depression to the relatively narrow tiered green. All the par 3s were good and called for a range of clubs to be used - the long 8th called for a very stout hit with a rescue club (which I failed to achieve!). On the debit side, course conditioning was variable though I haven't played the course before so can't tell if my experience was 'normal' for such an amazing natural setting - there was very little fairway definition to speak of, the turf was fairly soft and springy underfoot (good for walking but maybe not quite so good for drainage in wetter months) and the greens were true but pretty slow. Given the conditioning, I felt the green fee was bearable but not a bargain. I recommend Clyne very warmly - but you may want to check the forecast carefully so you can best appreciate the fantastic views and the scenery.
What a bargain!
I wasn’t expecting much for the £8 (Golf Now) required to play this course but I was in for a pleasant surprise. Horses and sheep had to be shooed off the first tee - they are all over the course but weren’t a problem, just adds character. The 360 degree views of the Gower, the Mumbles and Swansea are fantastic. For February and after a morning downpour the course was in great condition. Electric fences around the green are no problem. The layout is good and not too tight. I would recommend this course at twice the price. (I didn’t use clubhouse so haven’t scored that).
Very difficult to get a flat lie
Course was only ok. Fairways are undulating with little or no flat areas to play from with ball above or below your feet for most shots. The greens were in reasonable condition but had not been prepared for play with lots of surface water. It’s a difficult walking course particularly in damp conditions
We'll be back!
A lovely old heath-land course with superb views across Swansea Bay. The course was in excellent condition, the members and staff very friendly and welcoming and the clubhouse was really nice. Well worth a visit; we'll be back.
this course is picturesque
The Club has all the usual facilities expected for a club of its reputation. The chipping and practice net area is somewhat cramped and unattractive. The club shop seemed well stocked and the professional was welcoming. There was no opportunity to join with another player so I went round on my own in just over 3 hours with a push trolley. I found the course challenging but not specially difficult. As there are a few animals(ponies and sheep) on the course the greens have a protective fence system. The course is quite hilly and in places the fairways(first 9 mainly) need attention. There was evidence that the ground doesn't take wet weather too well but on the day the greens played well. The bunkers were generally playable but on the wet side.
I had an enjoyable lunch in the excellent clubhouse where the bar steward was pleasant.
One I'll play again
One of the most unusual courses I've probably ever played. Electrified fences surround the greens to keep off the wondering wildlife (sheep, horses etc.)
The greens however were in perfect condition.
Breathtaking views across the Swansea Bay area, I think we were lucky that it was a lovely day. A rainy day may present a different experience
This course greens was excellent
I have never played a course where the greens was so immaculate. I enjoyed my round. Well done Clyne Golf Club.
Two ball evening round
Very interesting course where you play golf amongst the wildlife including wild horses. Greens were in excellent condition. Members were very friendly.
Golf at its wildest
First off, I must say Clyne has an amazingly stocked pro shop with the most helpful professional in attendance. That really set the day up on the right foot. The practice facilities are obviously missing a full range but with nets, a short game area and putting green all is in hand really. The course itself is tough, although said to be heathland it plays like a true links course. A very hilly course with wind pretty much affecting every shot. Not only do you have the challenge of the elements, you also have the wild life, sheep and horses are plenty on the course. Because of this, you'll find electric fencing around the greens and some of the tees. It doesn't really add to the challenge but more the quirkiness of the course. As well as the fore mentioned the best thing about Clyne is the views across the Bay (just close your eyes when Port Talbot comes in shot) as they are spectacular. All in all a true test of golf on a tough course with so many aspects to make you remember this course
views to die for
Jonathan the pro was very good at his job,me and three friend's played at 1 o'clock on Saturday with a buggy for £15 course was very dry after so much rain the previous week's overall a must play if you're in Wales
Great course, stunning greens, glorious views, friendly staff
An under-rated gem in a lovely part of Wales. The day we played was cold but sunny and the course was lovely underfoot. Greens were excellent - running firm and true - an absolute delight.
Each hole presented a different challenge and the shots to the green can be tricky. Stunning views of Mumbles pier and Swansea Bay!
Staff in the pro shop were very welcoming, as were the catering and bar staff. Looking forward to returning here to play again.
