    A wonderful, old-fashioned links course for everybody who likes golf as it was ment to be played. For good reason someone called it "the links in the sky".

    This is a little gem of a links with superb views and interesting holes. Many of the greens are above you on your approach shot which demands a clean strike to hold the smallish greens. The bunkers are well kept and the greens and fairways very good. Mike, the Pro is welcoming and friendly. Take a camera with you and enjoy undulating links some 200 feet above a winding valley and sea views second to none.

    Can't understand why I hadn't heard of this course before - I love links golf and this has to be one of the most spectacular courses in Britain. I was lucky with the weather but I think it would be a stunning course any day. Particular favourite was the seventh, where the view from the tee has to be one of the most spectacular I can remember seeing. If one were to ultra-critical you might say that there are too many holes which are not really that challenging if you are a halfway decent golfer. Having said that they are compensated by some very tough - and very long par fives. If you are going to the Gower peninsula and taking your clubs - do not miss this gem.

    What a beautiful depiction!!
    I knew, as we passed by (sans sticks), that we were likely missing one of those oft termed "hidden gems"! This narration confirms my suspicion. We were contemplating returning to Wales in a year or two for a number of reasons that have just swelled by one! Thanks for sharing!!!

    There are a couple of blind shots on the course, but there but they add to the interesting architecture of the course. There is a ruin of an ancient castle off of the 7th hole that dates back to the 1100s. It really is only a ruin, but there is much to distinguish it as a once regal building. And speaking of buildings, they are building a new clubhouse even thought the present one is warm and friendly. The options on tap were many and all were served in a cold pint.
    The views here among the best in England and the world. The view of the valley that leads to the ocean is spectacular. There were horses grazing on the flat grassland when I was there and colours that came off of the grass, the creek, the cliffs and the ocean were magnificent. From different holes you can maximise your view of any of these beauties so every hole offered better and better views. The beauty of this course compares to Pebble Beach in Northern California, Costa del Sol at the tip of the Baha in Mexico and Pelican Hill in Southern California. The only course I have ever seen with better views is Old Head on the south coast of Ireland.
    This is do not miss course.
