We unfortunately chose to play on Nefyn on the day of 60 mph wind which made life a little difficult. One hole on the back 9 was not playable due to salt damage to the green so we played an extra hole on one of the other 9 hole courses. We were booked to play the back 9 on the 9 hole course which runs along the peninsula which we thought was a bit " mickey mouse in places but altogether a great experience with great views.
Nefyn & District Golf Club
The Old Course at Nefyn is one of the United Kingdom's best kept secrets, and rivals almost anything in terms of its spectacular situation. A tiny promontory that juts out from the Lleyn Peninsula into the Irish Sea is the setting for ‘golf on the edge of the world', as Nefyn has been dubbed by many.

Nefyn & District Golf Club
Similarly to Old Head at Kinsale, Nefyn offers amazing sea views on three sides from the promontory, and keeping your eyes on the course in front of you can be the biggest challenge. Originally a nine hole course, Nefyn was extended by the revered duo of James Braid and J.H. Taylor, and now boasts 26 holes. Unusually, Nefyn has a standard outward ten holes, and two different inward sets of 8 holes, which adds much to the experience.
Heather, blind drives and devilish bunkers are among the hazards that await the hardy Nefyn golfer, who on a clear day may be able to spot the peaks of the Wicklow Mountains across the Irish Sea. There are few more amazing places to enjoy links golf in the UK, so make Nefyn and District's Old Course a priority on your next golf tour in Wales.

Amazing views that make the most of the location. The front 9 has some super holes. The old back 9 has a few quirky holes that didn't fit with the rest of the course. Pro & staff made us all welcome
Some very demanding long par 4s especially into what was a strong wind. As a 6 handicapper I could reach the first 3 holes in regulation. Great views and greens excellent. The point part of the course was a bit different but we preferred the other parts of the course.
We all wanted to play the peninsula and we where not disappointed by the scenery, the location is amazing and the staff helpful and friendly. However the condition of the holes on the peninsula wasn't very good. The inland holes where in far better condition but these where let down by the greens. Very slow and bumpy with far too much grass on them. I'm sure if we played them in a few weeks they would be great. Well worth that extra 60 minute drive for the experience.
Course was as expected with links. Fabulous views. Only thing 'The Point' closes at 1030 for health and safety matters.
Fantastic golf course, some of the greens on the Old Course on the Point had obviously suffered a bit from the very hot Summer, but overall, the course was in great condition. Golf Pro really helpful in getting us an earlier Tee Time. Unfortunately, we were playing in front of a Society who seemed to want to hastle us from behind, was very disappointed with the attitude of some of them making unnecessary, unpleasant comments on the Tee, especially as my Brother is 82yrs old and not as quick as he once was. Having said that, it didn’t spoil our overall experience on this great course and would definitely play there again.
