Teeuplo visit Conwy Golf Club, North Wales

20/03/2014

We arrived at the golf club in bright sunshine and met with a fairly strong wind, classic links weather. We were looking forward to playing this classic links course.

Our visit to the pro shop was the first note of quality, an excellent pro shop with a great range of golf equipment and clothing. The Pro Andrew was also a breathe of fresh air, very welcoming, informative and made you feel like he was happy to have you visit.

The course opens with a great par 4, followed by a tricky little par 3 where if the green is missed you will have a tricky up and down to save par. The prevailing winds make holes 5 and 8, both par 4's and extremely tough, a struggle for even the big hitters to reach in regulation. In contrast the downwind par 5's are reachable with two good shots and offer good birdie chances. There are two stunning par 3's on the back nine and the finish is a well known card wrecker! Holes 16,17 and 18 are all tight off the tee and require accurate approach shots for any chance of making par.

Overall the course offers a great variety of holes, tricky greens and well placed bunkers throughout. The ground was unbelievably dry especially when you consider the course had been immersed in some heavy floods not long ago! The greens were superb and had great pace and a true roll. It would be very difficult to pick fault with this impressive links course.

The clubhouse is excellent and has great views from the upstairs spike bar and the main room, sitting perched above the 18th green looking out to the Great Orme in the distance across the Irish Sea. The food was excellent and good value, much like everything else at this venue, FIRST CLASS!
