There are a couple of exciting holes on the peninsula but also some very strange holes including a par five with a sink hole in the landing zone. It wasn’t a place I’d like a return play.

It's not always about the architecture.A spectacular setting, a mid round inn right on the beach-100 feet below the cliff top course.Sean(the patron Saint of golf course discovery) and Ian have it about right objectively... but .....(subjectively) I strongly encourage you to make sure you ARE passing through this slice of heaven in Northwest Wales, where there aren't any 8-10s in pure 18 hole GCA terms, but loads of "10" moments and multi hole stretches on multiple area courses.I've ALWAYS been able to look past a few or even many so called "pedestrian" holes in order to expereience unique, untravelled places with just enough highlights to form lasting memories,of not only GCA, but landscape and culture.Remote Wales is kind've like the land time forgot.(so far)And that's a great thing for us.Probably a bit OT,but I'm far more enamored with an unspoiled alleged GCA "5-6" dotted with "10" moments, than I am in sharing a "10" with the busses and logoed headcover crowd.To this day I remember every shot I hit at Durness, Reay, Nefyn ,Cruit and Gweedore, all GCA "6's" littered with "10" plus moments.Yet struggle to remember a shot I hit at Muirfield or other GCA darlings.(Perhaps it was the kummel)
