Back to S.Wales again for five rounds at five courses. Returned to here again as we all enjoyed our previous visits, after several days of rain the course was playable, with several new ditches doing an admirable job. We were advised the bunkers should be treated as G.U.R until they could worked on, and pick and place would help. But with all that, it still a great course to play, the course appears to be miles from anywhere, but is obviously very popular, the notice board showed over 100 members had played in a recent medal with a good number of single figure guys.
A nice variety of holes, plenty of tree lined fairways, and some water. We met a green keeper who actually apologised for state of the course due to all the recent rain, and he hoped it wouldnt spoil our visit!! When was the last time you had ever heard that?
Nice, rather quaint clubhouse, good range of beers and a nice ham sandwich for £2.00, friendly members, well worth a visit.
Day two of our tour of South Wales brought us to this (seemingly) little known course, what gem! Nice welcome from the Pro, as they dont have a course planner he took time to walk with us to the first tee and explain the layout of the first 8 holes.
The 1st, a par 4 is drivable by the big hitters, but then the variants of the putting surface can catch you out and a par is a good result. The second is a climb to an elevated green that requires at least one more club than the yardage indicates. The course then meanders through nice tree lined fairways to the 6th a tricky par 3 over a pond to a green surrounded by bunkers.
After the 8th you cross the road to play the remaining 10 holes, the 14th stands out as great hole that can easily catch you out, a 90 dogleg to green 50 feet below the fairway with a river running behind it. Three holes are then played along side this river, before climbing up to the 18th and returning to the very old club house. We were told it was a renovated barn that was the oldest of its kind in South Wales; it is certainly very quaint but equally very functional. The snack we had was quite cheap and the beer good, the club appeared to have a large membership considering it was so far outside any main town. It is well worth a visit, and we would return again another year.
Glynir Golf Club - Last Week in August.
To Gerald (Captain) Duncan, Lynne and Adam,
Thank you for some wonderful hospitality over these last few days. Tuesday and Wednesdays weather was super, but it took a turn for the worst over Thursday and Friday.
No matter the friendship shown by you all was excellent.
Please thank the vets for allowing me to join in their day. Especially, Miedram, Ivor and John Phillips. The golf and their company was second to none.
A special note from Val to Duncan. Thank you for the lesson. I hope that next time we're down I shall attempt 18 holes.
The course condition was superb. Well done to the ground staff.
Hope to see you in the near future.
Best wishes to you all.
