6 reviews of Old Colwyn Golf Club
Played here last week with my sister and her boys.
Thought the course was excellent and very enjoyable. Condition was great to consider the staff they have. A great day, and will be back again.
Am a qualified course manager and play from a h'cap of two.
Don't expect the standard of a large members course but they work wonders with what resources they have available.
I paid £6 on 21st April for unlimited golf after 5pm. I had plenty of time to play 18 but simply felt no wish to sample any of the 9 holes again.
I understand the club are short of staff and this was evident in the very poor state of the greens which are a vital element in a short course.
While any course has the right to force visitors to play off yellow tees some were in front of the ladies tees on what is already a very short course. The different lengths on the 2 nines from the white tees were thus not a factor as I had anticipated.
The sun shone, the lambs gambolled on the 3rd, the views are fabulous
but the golfing experience was very disappointing. It might be fun as a 3 club challenge but only if the greens are in reasonable shape.
I think old colwyn golf club is great with amazing views on the last hole. The greens are in good condition and the fairways are lush. The course is very hilly and some holes are short but harsh. I got greeted very well and i enjoyed a pint in the small but pleasent club house.
I enjoyed the course and found the shop called sometimes very handy.
I think that Old Colwyn Golf Club is a good challenge and has improved on signs and where to tee off next. I also think that it is a good course if you want to get your moneys worth.
The greens are good in the summer but slow in winters. The course also has some practice facilities including
.2 practice nets
.Practice putting green
.And a practice ground.
I do like old colwyn golf club and it's narrow holes
Played course on the best day of April. Nobody around to greet us so we paid our green fees and teed off.
First hole was a good challenging Par 5, negotiated in a pretty handy (for me) 8. That's when the problems started. A small wooden signpost was all that was required to prevent us from spending the next ten minutes running around the 6th 7th and 8th holes looking for the 2nd Tee.
An helpful greenkeeper finally advised us to go through the gate, and across the road. Being hopeless townines we had assumed that this would result in us getting shot by poachers or trampled by a herd of angry heiffers. However we did find the second tee here in the next field.
Having established this to be an unusual set up we were less surprised to have to move into the next field along for the third hole. What did surprise us was the appearance on the course of numerous sheep and their associated droppings.
Having to tee off with three score and ten wooly pigs directly in front of me was somewhat disconcerting for a rank amateur. With little confidence that I would not kill one with a shank or humiliate myself in front of them with a duff, I drove out of bounds on two occasions. I left the 3rd hole relieved to have carded only an 11.
From this point the course picked up. It was better signposted, more realistically challenging, less livestock.
The short par three 7th was a joy, as was the near-vertical 9th. All of the greens unsullied by animal business were very well maintained as were the majority of fairways and bunkers.
In spite of the sheep thing I would return to Old Colwyn, but I would pack a pair of wellies and invite a border collie next time.
A nice friendly club which offers a very affordable round of golf. The course isnt the best in the world, but it offers some interesting holes with plenty of challenges. The 1st par 5 is very reachable and can get you off to a good start, the 2nd is the only really weak hole on the course, but once you get past this it really is good fun. The short par 4 8th is a lovely looking hole and tempts you to 'have a go' but this is one of those courses that can catch you out if you dont pay it proper respect.
I played after a few days of torrential rain and have to say that it was in good condition despite this. The greens were in very good condition. The £12 fees are well worth it, especially as its a very friendly club - no airs and graces here, turn up, pay your fees and enjoy your day - simple as that, what more do you need ?
