    Holywell offers a unique golfing challenge in a delightful part of North Wales within easy reach of Chester, Merseyside and the North West.

    Situated on Brynford common, a mile up the hill from the town of Holywell - fondly known as the "Lourdes of Wales" - this inland links type course is a fair and sporting test for golfers of all abilities. It's one of the highest courses in Wales and, at 800 feet above sea level, its invigorating air (and unpredictable breezes!) enhance the quality of the experience.

    Add in the warmth of the welcome - you'll go far to find a friendlier club- the glorious views to the Clwydian Range and Snowdonia, the competitive fees, the first class professional service, the excellent catering and its accessibility just off the A 55 and you really have something to savour.

    Then, of course, there's the fascination of the course itself. Established over a hundred years ago, the softness of the turf and the limestone subsoil combine to provide an arena which is never fatiguing. There are no tiring up hill holes and, whilst the course is compact, it succeeds in providing 18 holes of real golfing challenge. It's full of variety and interest - with its many natural hazards - for both visitor and member alike.

    Holywell Golf Club is situated in an area of common land known as Halkyn Mountain. The area has a rich history due to lead and zinc ore mining dating back to Roman times. The lead ore was taken by the Romans for smelting at Flint, and pigs of lead produced there were stamped with the inscription Deceangli, the name of the British tribe occupying the area. Limestone is also abundant in the area, two very large quarries are still in production today, evidence of the limestone quarrying and processing can be seen by the derelict lime kilns near the 15th green and after the 16th Tee before the fairway. Local golfers refer to both of these holes as 'hitting over the quarry' and a shrewd choice of club is required when the wind is blowing!

    Simply turned up at the Pro Shop and asked to play. Great welcome and Pro took me to the first tee and explained the course lay out. Takes some getting used to sheep roaming the course but after a few holes stopped noticing. Course mainly heathland with a some excellent holes, I particularly liked the 7th, the short 15th and the 18th. Very still day and would image it would be a real challenge on a windy day. Chatted to a few members it has a real friendly feel. Will definitely play this course again.

    A car load of Ince golf society members left Wigan on Sunday 11/12/16 after an hours drive we arrived at Holywell to be greeted in the pro Shop with a glass of Scotch and a mince pie we than had our breakfast which was belting. We teed off on time and the course was in fantastic condition and the green's brilliant after all the rain we have had. The price for this £20.everyone we met at the club were friendly and helpful. We have certainly penciled Hollywell in for another visit.

    This course is a one off, you won't find anot her course like this in he world. The club is also a very friendly club. Food great greens very good all year round. Good value for money.
    The course has great Holes and many unusual natural features. Including a par three over a quarry. Not to be missed.
