Gwynedd - Nefyn Golf Club

Golf with views to take the breath away at Nefyn Golf Club

Nefyn Golf Club delivers one of the most visually stunning rounds of golf in the UK. This remarkable course has 27 holes via three loops of nine, with nine holes on the famous peninsula itself. The nine holes on each of the three courses were originally designed by James Braid in 1907.

Nefyn has proved so resistant to categorisation that it’s only in the last couple of years that golfers outside Gwynedd have begun to recognise how special it is. Now it’s celebrated precisely because of its extraordinary and perverse nature. Perhaps its most striking feature is its vast size. It stretches for miles around the coast and demands impressive drives with plenty of long irons.

Described as North Wales' Pebble Beach, Nefyn & District Golf Club has the option of playing the 'new' or 'old' final nine. The coastal location makes the wind a little unpredictable, not to mention the dramatic clifftop holes that lie in wait to steal your golf balls. This really is a course that you won’t get tired of playing.

And after a wild and windy round, what better way to recharge then at the famous Ty Coch Inn, below the course, in the tiny village of Porthdinllaen.
