Played here February ,2015.
Hilly course with spectacular views from the top ( probably the best i can remember from an inland course ) but also with many inclines so is hard walking (one of the few courses that if i went back to i would consider a buggy ).
Well worth playing for it's uniqueness ,the views & because it does have several holes that are that bit different .However , due to all the walking up the slopes & i would imagine the everpresent wind it did seem to drag on a bit towards the end.
Best played on a sunny day to get the full effect from the high points.
Pro shop was very welcoming & helpful .
If the clubhouse is closed afterwards the pub at the bottom of the road was hospitable & does decent food.
I have been fortunate to play LLanymenech a number of times as a guest and it is without doubt one of the finest golf courss I have experienced. The friendly welcome is followed by 18 utterly brilliant golf holes....well 17 actually as the first is a bit ordinary. The condition of the course is quite superb given how wet many local courses are of late. At Llany the fairways are immaculate and the greens consistent, receptive and a great but fair test of putting. The course requires strategic play rather than prodigious length. Make sure you take time out to enjoy the views from the top giving a 360 degree panorama of some of the finest scenery in the UK. And when you finish, enjoy a good old fashioned and friendly clubhouse with excllent beers and good food which is almost always available. Top golf......enjoy.
Played the course in early March and found it to be in good condition if greens a little slow.
The 1st is comfortably the worst hole on the course but after that there is a succession of excellent golf holes. The beauty of the course is that you can score well if you are on your knock but danger abounds if you are not. The course is not overly long but demands a strategic approach to score well. There is a great use of elevation for both tees and greens.
The par 3s are particularly memorable and hold the key to a good score. Hole 10 is played over a ravine where the ball is dead if you do not clear and 16 is a long strike up hill. Memorable holes are the 5th played to a greatly elevated green making club selection awkward, the 7th with an elevated tee making for a most inviting tee shot, the 11th a very sporty short par 4 where all outcomes are on the cards and a memorable 18th with a drive from an elevated tee into a valley leaving an approach to an elevated green. The toughest holes are probably the 9th where only the longest are likely to get home in 2 blows, the 12th and the 17th.
Ive played the course many times before and in Summer the greens tend to be true and slick adding another dimension. The views from the course are sensational and it is a fantastic place to play your golf if like me you prefer established clubs over modern tournament type venues. However, you will also be left with an impression of a true golfers course populated by an unpretentious membership whose welcome in the clubhouse is amongst the best Ive experienced.
This course is second to none. I was fortunate to play here on 'an exchange day' during the first week in October. With the surrounding area under water following a week of incessant rain,it was a pleasure to play this course. The greens were in excellent condition and nothing was out of place. Every hole has its own characteristics and wouldn't like to say which is the best as they are all good to play. The views around the course are fantastic. The staff were most welcoming and helpful. Thanks for a great day.
Our society played this course at the beginning of September 2006. Fantastic is the only word you can use to describe this superb course. Every hole has its own character,the views are breathtaking [so are the hills.] If you get the chance to play there take it and enjoy.
Our little society enjoyed a visit to this lovely course yesterday. We all agreed that Llanymynech GC is one of the most scenic courses you could wish to play. It presented a stiff challenge even on a fairly still day. It was in beautiful condition, especially the greens, which were fast and true. You do need to be accurate rather than long on most holes, but you can get the driver out too. It's a bit of a climb and those who elected to take a buggy were smiling by the end. The members and staff were friendly and welcoming. I'd definitely recommend that you visit if you are in the area.
Our Golf Society paid its 7th visit to Llanymynech in May 2005 and we hope to return many times again in the future.
Llanymynech is one of those courses that is hard to describe just how good it is to anybody who has never been before.
Beautiful golf holes in a beautifully unique setting.....and if your game isn't up to much you can take in the panoramic views which stretch for miles.
Despite not being the longest course, the variety of holes, undulating terrain and exposure to the wind make for a tough challenge. The greens are small and in summer are like putting on glass, you don't see many bunkers either as the approaches to most greens are tough enough.
Off the course is just as good, with a friendly reception from the Secretary, Caterers, Staff and members alike.
Llanymynech is a "must play" golf course, if you can find it! Don't worry if you can't pronounce it, get yourself down there and enjoy.

THIS COURSE IS A REAL GEM. HOLE FOR HOLE IT HAS TO BE ONE OF THE BEST I'VE PLAYED. IT PRESENTS A REAL CHALLENGE FOR ALL LEVELS. THE PAR 3'S (APART FROM THE 1ST) ARE MAGNIFICENT, ESPECIALLY THE 10TH WHICH HAS A REAL INTIMIDATING TEE SHOT. THE COURSE OFFERS MAGNIFICENT VIEWS OVER SHROPSHIRE AND WALES, BE CAREFUL ON THE 12TH TEE THERE IS A SHEER DROP ABOUT 10 YARDS BEHIND THE TEE BOX. I WOULD NOT WANT TO BE THERE IN A GALE!!! THE COURSE FAVOURS A PLAYER WHO CAN HIT THE BALL RIGHT TO LEFT OFF THE TEE. I FOUND THAT THE KEY TO A GOOD SCORE IS THE TEE SHOT, GET THE BALL IN PLAY AND THE APPROACH TO THE GREEN IS NOT THAT DIFFICULT. APART FROM THE 1ST WHICH IS TOTALLY OUT OF PLACE ALL HOLES ARE MEMORABLE, BUT ESPECIALLY THE 10TH, 11TH & 15TH. THE HARDEST HOLE ON THE COURSE IS BY FAR THE PAR 4 12TH WHICH AT 432 YARDS PRESENTS A TOUGH TEST. ONCE PLAYED I GUARANTEE YOU'LL WANT TO COME BACK. I CAN'T WAIT!!!
This course is a real gem set on a hilltop where the Welsh leader Caradog once fought off the Romans. It has superb panoramic views over the Welsh hills to the west and the Shropshire plain to the east. This was Ian Woosnams home course. The course is playing really well with the greens tees and fairways in superb condition. Every hole is different but probably the 11th and 12th are the most spectacular. A great venue for a weekend away combined with the Vale of Llangollen and Oswestry courses.
