    Ten of us turned up at 10.45am on Monday 22nd of October. The day’s organiser had phoned the previous Friday and was quoted £10 for a round with our county cards. However, after much discussion with the pro and the secretary the club said that we were a week early for that offer, so, even though we were told that it was going to cost £10 we were charged £20. Bad karma number one.
    The second hole had a temporary tee mat, one of those raised platforms that even the slightest movement on it turns it into a seaside trampoline. There were around seven I think around the course. Bad karma number two.
    When we came in after our round we were informed that there was no catering, tea or coffee. Bad karma number three.
    The course itself was dry and in good condition, the greens especially were true and some with difficult pin positions were like Augusta, so summertime they would be really difficult. The par three’s were a bit mickey mouse today because of the tee mats, balls were shooting off in all directions and we aren’t bad golfers! A couple of holes have golfers crossing adjacent fairways so beware of stray balls. The course comes into its own when you reach the top. Panoramic views are superb and there are some nice holes up there. The signature hole is the par 3, 16th. It was around 150 against the wind today, again off a mat to an isolated green with steep slopes and rough to the left and a high bank protecting the right. I think this hole would look superb if they introduced a large bunker at the bottom of the left hand bank stretching half way round the green. This would trap the left wayward shot but still give you a chance of an up and down instead of spending a while looking for your ball in the bush. This was obvious as we had to wait for the group in front and those behind had to wait for us as we searched for our balls so hold ups must be a common occurrence on this hole.
    All in all we were disappointed with the attitude of the club but enjoyed the golf. I think this is a course you have to play in the summer to reap the benefits of proper tee boxes and accurate yardage. Without a county card expect the price to be a tad expensive so look around at clubs nearby to get a better deal.

    Is it a requirement that the card is shown before I am able to book a round at Langland Bay?

    This is a very fine course with spectacular views across the Bristol Channel. Their Open week washed w/c6/6/2000 and a number of visitors said they were very impressed with the course and it's condition, especially, the greens. They also had enjoyed the friendly atmosphere, good food and a good selection of wine and drinks. A very worthwhile visit.
