Sean,An interesting look around Harlech, and you pointed out a few things about the course I had missed, but I can't believe you prefer it to Porthcawl. Aside from the last few holes, the rest of Harlech is so flat and uninteresting I suggest spending any money for improving the course go to hiring Catherine Zeta Jones to loll around in the bunkers. Then it might have a fighting chance. Last time I was there it was 25 quid for a round. 50 is ridiculous - are the Welsh assembly getting their economic policies from Robert Mugabe?
Sean,You mention the drainage whilst I have no knowledge I expect RStD isn't the wealthiest club in Wales, it isn't easy to get to and there is a lack of easily accessible good courses in the area for golf trips. I enjoyed my round there although it's only really the back nine that excites. Chappers
Sean:Thanks for the trip down memory lane. I stood inside the castle some 25 years ago, looking down on the featureless terrain below, and my buddy said, "That's a golf course!" We didn't play, but I was struck by how feature-less it looked from the turrets high above. Your photo essay reveals how sometimes aerial views of courses fail to reveal any of the subtlety on the ground. Neat bunkering!
It's a shame some of the bunkers are flooded. It looks like they did not stand up well to the "...winter torrents roaring."

It'll be July before things are that dry here in Ontario.
