Played here November ,2012 (£15).
Enjoyable ,fairly flat ,straightforward links .Better than it looks when you first arrive .
On the front 9 you can open your shoulders off the tee whereas the back 9 you need to be more precise .The bunkers on the course are fair & well positioned.
Good par 3's & the greens were the best of the trip.
There is a big bank along the edge of the course which prevents you from seeing the sea.
The course has a nice ambience & tranquil feel .It also seems to drain well although oddly the 8th fairway was saturated.
Welcoming pro . The clubhouse is unattractive from the outside but is fine inside.
This probably wouldn't be the main course on a trip to the area but it's well worth including & at £15 ,including a bacon roll & coffee, is fantastic value.
Played for 15 pound each at 4pm and it was a bargain. The course was in great condition considering the amount of rain there had been, just one fairway was holding a lot of water, but the rest of the course was dry. The greens were perfect and true and the course was a real challenge in a 3 club wind. A 100yrd shot required a 7 iron in to the wind and most of the holes were into the wind. I managed to drop 8 shots of a 5 handicap and I was more than happy with that. I would recommend this course and would give it 9 out of 10.
Sunny day and only a breeze so the course wasn't really showing it's teeth! 9 of us played and we all agreed that the course was in great condition. Greens were true and the extra run on the fairways took a little bit of getting used to. But it has been very dry. The conditions made the par threes particularly tricky.
The front nine is nowhere near as challenging as the back nine but on a windy day....?
Staff in the clubhouse were very friendly and the food was excellent.
No complaints. £32 for bacon batch and coffee, 2 course meal and 18 holes. Bargain!
Played the mid-week during mid February.
a bargain on the midweek wainter rate of £10, it may be a bit pricey on the full summer rate but given the tourist location its not surprising.
a good reasonably challenging layout with some very testing par 4's.
The rough was not very penal - it was winter afterall but stay out of the bunkers, very penal & typically links.
Some of the fairways were very wet with the odd driver plugging, particularly at the far end of the course, the greens however were excellent for the time of year - very quick & true.
The only drawback is you dont see the sea on any of the holes!!!
I would happily play here again.
I have played here twice times this year both towards the end of the day and each time was given a reduced rate which is not advertised -always a good start.
In March I chose a day with absolutely no wind but the course was still not easy (proper tees and no temporary greens). In June there was a strong westerly wind which, as frequently with links golf, was not always a help even when directly behind but really lengthened those holes when it was in your face.
There are several notable holes with the stretch from 10th to the 16th being particularly testing with narrow fairways and a railway nicely placed for hooked shots. The 7th green is stuck in the sandhills surrounded by jungle making a shortish (and normally downwind) par 5 a real challenge.
The greens are fast and true but mostly fairly small and well protected by bunkers &/or the terrain which makes par very satisfying. Fairway bunkers are to be avoided as they usually cost a shot being "proper bunkers" rather than expanses of sand.
The course is not scenic as links go but its quality even off the yellows makes it well worth a visit.
Final day, and finally the wind had relented after being battered round Maesdu, North Wales, and Conwy; with the sun making an overdue appearance. Conditions like this had to be taken advantage of...
My dad kept up his usual form on the front nine, poor. Mine was helped by my putter, great greens to putt on and I took advantage with only 25 putts for the 18 holes.
Whilst not having the traditional blind tee shot links set up, this course is like all links where it plays completely different when the wind is up, which it did on the back nine...
After going out in 40 (3 over), including a great par save at the par 5 7th hole, word of warning for that hole, the green is dog legged to the left in the dunes, one of the few blind shots on the course.
Prestatyn is a flat course, and when played wasn't too busy. We played the round in 3 and a half hours with no hold ups, a contrast to the previous three days.
A round of under 80 was hoped for after nine holes, though after the wind picked up I bogeyed the last three holes for an 81 (9 over), best round of the weekend. If the course played like it did on the front nine Id rate the challenge rating as 5, if the wind is up Id rate it an 8.
On reflection of the four courses in the area, Conwy is the premier course; North Wales would be where I'd play most if I lived in the area; Maesdu, and Prestatyn are courses I'd play again if I have the time after the other two.
PLAYED THE COURSE 02/02/07, CHILLY BUT SUNNY DAY,TEES WERE GOOD,FAIRWAYS WERE GOOD(APART FROM A FEW ON THE BACK 9,WHERE PLACING IN THE SEMI ROUGH WAS REQUESTED)BUT THE GREENS WERE FANTASTIC !!FAST AND TRUE, WELL WORTH THE TRIP ALONE !!
Difficult to reconcile the other contributers views with what we found in early October 2005. On checking with the pro's shop a day prior to play we were told the course was fine despite heavy rain. During play we found 17 greens were heavily spiked and 6 fairways were closed. A member then told us that these fairways were closed all winter, every winter. In any event, a poor links course, not natural enough. Suitable for holiday golfers only. Prospective guests would be well-advised to check matters out carefully before booking. Sea views blotted out by flood embankments which is essential but a pity. Clubhouse facilities acceptable. Conway or Abergele much better bet.
This was the first time I had played the course in over twenty years and the other three players in the group had never played it before. the weather was sunny and breezey and the course was in wonderful condition. It makes a nice change to putt on good greens and be able to play chip and runs instead of having to welly it from whatever lie you have which has been happening on some courses we have played recently. However, get in the rough, and you will have your work cut out. Played on the 2fore1 scheme and even at full price would play this course again. A fabulous day and a good course. what more could you want.
Prestatyn is a great venue for winter golf due to it's location. You may well get blown off your feet but playing to proper greens all year round makes it well worth it. The winter package is unbeatable with 18 holes and a meal included. The catering is first class and the friendly welcome afforded to visitors is much appreciated. As for the course, it is a great links setting and very well kept. I'm sure the greens would be frightening in the Summer but i doubt if the wind ever stops. Hitting your best drive about 50 yards into the wind somehow adds to the fun!
Excellent. Another gem of a course that you only find out by going somewhere different and paying a green. Golf isn't just about being a member of a club for 10 years and palyign week in week out. It's about experiencing new courses, whether good, bad or just downright awful (is there an awful course anyway..i think not). Well P.G.C. is a golfers course, long and demanding. Some wonderful holes and views. A pleasure...absolute pleasure...
