    Yes, it has got fantastic views and Yes you will never forget the cliffs, the sea and so on. BUT as a GOLF course it cant be mentioned in the same sentence as Royal St Davids or even Conwy.
    The greenareas lack imagination, its a lot of blind shots simply beca├║se the tees are not elevated and in april 2005 the greens are NOT good. Of the holes on the famous cliff its really only one or two holes that uses the cliffs, the others have great views and thats it.
    Play it once? Definitely. Go back? Not really.

    I have been a member of Nefyn Golf Club for about two years now and am yet to play on a more enjoyable and picturesque course. The staff are unfailingly polite, pleasant and take their individual jobs very seriously. I thoroughly recommend the course to anyone who either stays or lives on the Lleyn Peninsula.

    For the last 3 years myself and 2 of my golfing buddies have paid a visit to nefyn twice a year when you arrive in the carpark that overlooks the course it one of wonderment which is only compouded when you actually play this wonderful course i must say that the new course considering its youth is a testament to the green staff and is inkeeping with the old front 10 holes of which are fantastic its a must play and its also very cheap to play compared with courses of this quality

    This is the best course I have ever played in my life, despite nearly driving my golf buggy over a cliff on the 15th and killing myself! (I recovered with a par on the next!) Words or pictures or whatever you read here, do not do this golf course have got to visit and experience it for yourself. We were aided by perfect weather but would imagine it would be equally enjoyable in a force 10 gale. Friendly staff and members made the whole day even better and will definitely be making an annual pilgrimage here in the's just a pity it is so far away but it is more than worth leaving Liverpool at 6:00 am, and a 2 hour drive, to get there.

    I first played the original course over 20 years ago as a 12-year-old. Although initially disappointed that I could not play the original 8 holes this time I was very impressed by the new course.
    The first 10 holes speak for themselves, they are part of the original course, and they are reviewed elsewhere.
    The new holes are well laid out, making full use of the landscape, challenging but fair - you even have the opportunity to cut a corner over the edge of a cliff on a landward hole! This is the 405-yard par 4 15th. The conservative amongst you will keep your drive over the course and play the hole as a proper dogleg left whilst those of you who claim to 'hit long' will take the direct route left of the cliff straight at the flag. To be successful you'll have to be long - at least 330+ yards long!
    The first of the 8 holes is the par 3 11th, whilst this might look straight and ordinary compared with earlier holes you have to hit 181 yards straight into a small green to have a chance of par never mind birdie. Another enjoyable hole is the 512-yard par 5 17th. On an autumn weekend without a breath of wind the average club golfer is unlikely to reach the green in anything less than 3. However, there is a promise that during a warm summer spell there might be the chance of hitting the green in 2 with the possibility of getting a birdie or if the putter is working an eagle - a rare bird indeed.
    An impressive feature of the course are the bunkers, whether they are the strategically positioned fairway bunkers or the tight greenside bunkers you certainly do not want to spend any time in them. The greens are in good condition, particularly when you consider their relative youth, and are of a similar pace to those on the original holes.
    All in all a good course which supports the excellent original course.

    I'm about to return here for the fourth time this weekend. Every time before has been a fantastic experience. This is in my top three courses that I've ever played (Muirfield in Scotland and Old Head in Ireland are the others). It's hard to describe the last 8 holes but imagine a traditional links course only perched on 200 feet cliffs. If you are ever within reach of here make sure you go, you are certain to leave the place in awe.

    One of the most beautiful courses in the world. The original final 8 holes along the cliffs with the sea on both sides are stunning. Good test but not unfair; can reward bold shots along the cliffs. Many blind shots, so get a course guide. Great people, superb value. Put acamera in your bag.
