  • A Great Parkland Course

    Myself and 8 other golf buddies played at Fairwood in September 2009 on a tour of the Gower Peninsula. We also played at Pennard GC (a links) and Clyne GC (a mix of heathland and links), both of which were enjoyable courses but Fairwood was by far the most enjoyable of all.
    It wasn't the best of starts to the day as we wanted to play off the back white boxes but were abruptly told not to by the Pro Shop because of a Club Competition happening later in the day. But in fairness the golf didn't dissappoint us, even off the yellows where it was still a long track.
    The definition on the fairways was superb with enough width not to be too punishing to wayward tee shots, as well as... a clearly defined cut in the semi-rough. Hooray! There are far too many parkland courses that are sloppy in their approach to the difference between 'rough' and 'semi-rough' so it was great that Fairwood was not one of them.
    A lot of the holes have water, and I got punished on the 10th and 15th for being too aggressive around the lakes. But the best aspect of the course was the greens which were in great condition and definitely the best of any we played that weekend.
    We may not return to Wales for a few more years but when we do then this course will be on our list again.
