Anyone else notice how brown the links are this winter? I'm guessing it's a result of the cold and snow.
A recent trip to coastal Mid-Wales took in a game at delightful Borth & Ynyslas. Rural and rugged and a bit rough around the edges but great fun and sneaky challenging golf. Golf like it used to be in so many places. Clever use of humps and hollows especially the modestly angled diagonal ridges that frequent the first and last few holes. And the 14th, a 200 yr par-3 playing just inside the seawall, is an absolutely cracking hole.Not the greatest day for photos but here are some to augment what has been posted above.B&Y is very much worth a game if you are in the area. It's just across the river from Darwins favourite Aberdovey and James Braids terrific Welshpool isn't too far away either.atb18th green and ClubhouseApproach to the 3rd green. Love this photo. Simple golf. Not manicured but challenging and fun.
There are some very fine par 4s, but the 17th may take the prize. The terrain is not nearly as interesting as on some previous holes, but with the seemingly constant threat of the road right and marsh left, this 297 yarder is a head scratcher. I can't understand the reason for the back tees at 347 yards. This only seems to eliminate the best aspect of the hole - temptation.
