Nefyn & District Golf Club


4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.

Where2Golf says: 

Nefyn & District Golf Club: You will never tire of the spectacular and ever-present sea views here on this dramatic clifftop course at Nefyn, even though the wind, which is also ever-present, may well have gnawed into your bones by the time you finish. But don't be put off. The opening ten holes are played on a plateau above the cliffs, where the terrain is quite open, the holes excellently maintained and a solid start can be made to your round. What comes next is for you to choose. One option is to play more of the same on the closing eight "New Course" holes, which are similar in character to the opening ten; they take you further inland, but the sea views remain. Alternatively you can opt for the eight holes of the "Old Course" and an opportunity to inspect the ocean even more closely. You'll head out to sea on a narrow strip of headland, playing alongside the cliffs' edge at times and sampling Nefyn's dramatic coastal scenery at close quarters. Although one or two of these holes are a little quirky, they will test your shot-making and course management especially when played for the first time, (but beware passing tourists and walkers, especially in the summer months). With all this spell-binding ocean scenery, a very solid layout and a golfing masterpiece at the par-4 13th, Nefyn is a golf course that you'll be talking about for years to come - rather like golfing at Ireland's Old Head of Kinsale but at a fraction of the price.

At Nefyn, after playing the first 10 holes, you can usually choose between two alternatives to complete your round: either the 8-hole Old course, which takes you further out to sea on a dramatic headland, or the 8-hole New course, which head slightly inland and continues the same open, linksy theme of the opening ten.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
