    Played 27 holes, 9 in driving rain and then 18 in glorious sunshine. The weather made no difference to my appreciation of an excellent course (although I did play much better in the rain!). Although quite short,the front 9 requires good course management,the back 9 does get longer and tougher. The 17th and 18th (par3 and 5) are as good as you are likely to find anywhere.
    Overall the greens are very good, perhaps a little slow as we played on a friday and would probably be cut for the weekend comps making them even better. If you get the chance, then play this course. And another bonus, buggies only cost £10 for the day!

    When the former 9 hole Abergele Golf course was claimed by the new North Wales A55 Expressway in 1968, the members responded quickly and set to work to develop the current course slightly farther inland but in close proximity. Situated at the foot of the dramatic early 18th century Gwyrch Castle with commanding views over the Abergele and Rhyl coastal bays the new course has developed rapidly as a result of the considerable time, money and effort invested by the committee and members.
    In its formative years the members were encouraged to pick up stones from the fairways as they played their rounds of golf to assist in grooming the former meadowland. Imaginative work by the committee and greenkeeping staff has resulted in a course that whilst predominately flat is both attractive and an enjoyable test of golf. In the last few years the course with its strategically planted trees and shrubbery has matured immeasurably and together with the new imposing and enviably equipped clubhouse opened in 1997 at a cost of half a million pounds, Abergele and Pensarn Golf Club offers a challenging but not dispiriting 18 holes of golf. The members extend a warm welcome to visitors and the dining room with its panoramic views offers excellent economically priced cuisine all year round..

    A par four on the straightforward first hole eases you into the test ahead and the course is reasonably forgiving of wayward drives. Keep in mind that all putts reputedly fall towards the sea and don't forget to take the time to admire the abundant wildlife comprising mainly rabbits and the occasional squirrel. Take a camera with you to capture the imposing backdrops provided by the castle and scenic willow trees adjacent to the fifth green. Save your longest drive for the monster Road Hole at the 8th measuring 593 yards and remember to reserve some energy to ascend the elevated 183 yard 17th hole which would grace Augusta. Pars on the last two holes qualify you for a well earned drink in the lavishly appointed clubhouse. Don't however miss the opportunity of a photo-call at the neatly sculptured bridge close to the clubhouse over the brook at the long 18th. This was modelled on the Swilken Bridge at St Andrews and has the same compelling attraction.
    The course rewards the competent golfer but equally compensates with an abundance of eye catching scenery if your swing is not quite in the groove. No self respecting golfer should pass by Aberegele and Pensarn Golf Club without committing 18 holes to their portfolio.
