5 reviews of Inco Golf Club
The club having recently being taken over dealt a surprise upon my return after a number of years to play Inco (The Mond). You no longer pay in the old hut for a round of golf anymore, there is a small shop now located opposite it which is manned at all times during the day.
The course is an absolute pleasure to play & never ceases to bring a smile to my face. I played during the Autumn & the course was still as pretty as a picture. Fairways, tees & greens were well presented & course staff always aware enough to stop cutting or moving when you were playing.
Wales's comparison to amen corner at Augusta national has now been found, 12th, 13th & 14th holes must be named as truly wonderful holes, even if the back 9 in all honesty is exceptional.
I know the term a hidden gem is used allot, however you won't be disappointed after a round at Inco.
Inco is one of the least known of the courses in the Swansea area - despite its easy access from the M4 and then A465.
Having lived in Clydach for a while, I have passed Inco on an almost dailey basis for a while, and despite being a frequent golfer had never played there!
Until last week! - I would describe Inco as a "nice course". It doesnt really have the length (5800, yellow), the trouble, or the greens to trouble the top players - so low scores are a real possibility. It is however a very nice place to play - it is generally in good nick with some nice holes to play. The greens are on the slow side and flat, but consistent. Some of the holes are very pretty especially on the back 9. The fairways are fair, but even if you miss the fairway the rough is non-penal, your main risk is being blocked out by trees.
A major complaint was a number of holes which criss crossed each other, which could have been avoided by better course planning (maybe sacrificing course length, but then not having so many delays during the round, or risk of being crusted by an errant drive!)
£20 for a round was a little on the expensive in my opinion, although the unmanned shed you play in means some would take advantage of this. You could also do with a course planner as with some holes distances are tough to judge (to doglegs etc) - however they dont sell them!
All the members were friendly and the bar at the end served a lovely magners, aswell as a nice big screen showing the cricket.
Overall a nice course to play and a nice relaxed round.
I played the course on 19/09/2006 and while the fairways where in decent condition, the greens where not exactly up to scratch. For £18 I expected something a little better value for money. The course itself was an exellent lay out and with a bit more tender loving care to the greens I would consider playing the course again.
Played this wonderful course on 27th November and although a little damp under foot in place the standard was superb. I have never been to a club as a pay and play golfer and felt so welcome, right from the man in the car park who went out of his way and missed going off before us just to get us some change to all those on the course (Include the club member and his wife palying behind us who would some how find any lost ball we left behind and bring it to us on the next tee)I can not stress how much you should go and play this course, but to many of you as it won't be our little secret then.
I played this course on 8th Sept. 2003. The greens and fairways were in immaculate condition, despite the recent spell of dry weather. While the course is not overly long, it does provide a stern test as many of the fairways are quite narrow and the greens can be difficult to hit. This is a great course for all levels and we had an excellent day out, and a friendly welcome in the clubhouse, which is a simple affair but provides food and drink in a no frills environment !
