Bunkers GC Oct 2019

Considering the massive amount of rain we've had, this course held up amazingly well. First couple of holes are fairly bland but then rest of the front 9 are a great combination of testing holes with a great island green Par 3 in there. The back 9 is definitely more links like in the look and feel, with punishing gorse if you go offline, blind tees shots, some dunes and some stunning views (even on a bleek grey day like we had). Greens whilst soft in a few places cannot really be faulted considering the weather we've had and other courses already playing temporary greens. Would play again if I was in the area.

Played this lovely course for the first time, its a good course, mix of parkland,heath land and links. We played it on a dull rainy day and despite the recent rains and rain on the day the course took it well. the facilities are good and the hospitality from the staff and members was excellent. The back 9 I think is better than the front 9, playing links golf and some excellent holes. I look forward to playing this golf course again and hopefully on a nice sunny day. Thank you porthmadog for having us.

This is a great little course. The front and back 9 could not be more different. The front is a tidy parkland style course that eases you into your round before unleashing the links/heathland beast upon you. Anything wide on the back 9 will require a new ball. Some of the views are as good as you’ll get anywhere

Bunkers Invitational 2018

With the recent poor wet weather we were expecting the course to be in moderate condition. To my surprise it was in excellent condition for this time of year, the front 9 (parklandish) holes were well thought out with plenty of precise play needed to score well.

The real gem of this course for me was our route to the back 9, walking over the road down the cart path, the 10th tee welcomes you with a breathtaking view! Sand dune after sand dune with very well manicured fairways and very flat true greens. A tremendous course to have played.

My handicap is 18.

Played here end of March 2018 in the Bunkers Invitational.

The weather leading up to our visit so the review will reflect this.

Course was in great condition which is a credit to the staff.

The first 9 holes where very enjoyable with the parkland feel to them.

When you cross the road for the back 9 you know you are playing a Links course. Spectacular view when you climb the 13th tee box.

Greend where very good considering the weather and the general condition of the course was superb.

The captain intoruduced himself to the group prior to us going out which was a nice touch. We did not eat or use the bar facilities.

club shop looked decent and the pro very helpful.

I will be returning to this course.

Unfortunately the clubhouse was almost deserted when our party arrived at about 10am for our 10:30 tee time. The club Captain did arrive shortly after to offer us a warm welcome and wish us well for our round, which was a very courteous and much appreciated gesture.
The first nine holes have much more of a parkland feel than you might expect at a links course but they played well and I enjoyed the layout enormously.
When you walk on to the tenth tee you could be forgiven for thinking you’d been transported to a different course!
All that is visible in all directions are rolling sand dunes!
As we made our way some holes were extremely challenging and were made more so by the blustery winds that blew up and swirled about with great regularity. Some of the panoramic views out over the bay were nothing short of awe inspiring. The course rewards accurate driving in that there are good and not so good places to be in the fairways. There are a couple of blind tee shots, but nothing overly penal to beon unfamiliar tracks.
The greens throughout the round were in excellent condition...smooth rolling and pleasantly fast too.
Our round offered superb value for money at £20.
I’ll certainly be back.

I visited Porthmadog as park of Bunkers Golf Society on 22nd March 2018 as park of our annual invitational.

Despite the horrendous winter the UK has endured and the frost and 'beast from the east' the week before our visit, the course was in superb condition. The fairways were dry and firm and the greens ran nicely for the time of year.

As has been mentioned previously, the course has two very different feels to the front and back 9's. However, there is no gap in quality, more style and views.

The front 9 does have more of a parkland/heathland feel and isn't blessed with the true links feel or picturesque views, but it is a very good circuit of holes in its own right and as a nice way to break into the beauty of the back 9.

The wind plays more of a role not the second half of the course - as it should do running directly on the coastline and the views out over the bay are beautiful. The course weaves its way through the dunes and natural layout of the land and ball placement from the tee is paramount.

There are a couple of blind tee shots, but nothing overly penal to be honest. Take the posts as the line [adjust for the wind] and you won't go far wrong.

In summary, the course offers superb value [£20 for a winter round] and the course is a lovely mix that keeps you interested throughout. We played at 10:30am and the clubhouse was empty with no facility to grab a brew or a bite, and the driving range is a short walk from the clubhouse [and balls need to be purchased before you set off!!!] but we did get a nice personal welcome from the club Captain and the club were very welcoming throughout.

Played Portmadoc at the beginning of April with a small group. The welcome from the Pro and the Assistant Captain were very welcoming. The course, like many other, had suffered from a long wet winter and heavy overnight rain before we played. Despite this it was fully open and on main greens.

The front nine, which is mainly parkland, was firm and dry apart from the approach to the island green par 3.

The links nine is just fabulous. Testing but fair holes, super greens and a spectacular series of views.

The clubhouse and staff were also great both before for breakfast and after for drinks. In everyone's view a course that far outshines its local neighbours.

Played this course on the final day of a three day trip to Wales this month, firstly we were made most welcome in the pro shop by a wonderful pro, clearly passionate about his course, after a gentlish start the course gets better and better, the front nine provides some good holes and testing shots, the back nine however is spectacular in parts with great views of the bay, course in good condition for the time of year, we even saw a young eagle landing on a great hole called Himalayas, hospitality in clubhouse was great and food most enjoyable before our drive home

Really liked this course. Played it in September 2015 on a fairly windy day so difficulty levels were increased considerably. (One par 3 on back 9 was unreachable with a driver!) the first 9 have considerable interest and difficulty but it when you you get on the back 9 that this course shows it teeth!!There are short par 4s that really have you scratching your head and on most holes a slightly wayward short will mean a reload. I would definitely recommend that you get a course planner as there a few blind drive holes which will catch out the unwary very easily. (tip - check the position of the post with the white tee rather than the yellow if you do not want to lose a ball). Another great tip would be.. if its gone in the rough - leave it your not going to find it and if you do your not going to get it out. Hospitality in the clubhouse was great and i can recommend the speciality Lamb burger. On a downside the greens were very hard and pitching them meant a long chip back to the green. Overall though a cracking course.

Links or Parkland ?

This used to be our winter venue (in between Xmas and New Year) but we have no moved on now as our last visit created a few mixed feelings, we did enjoy many a good game here and the two 9s are very different is it links or parkland? everyone loves the back 9, Himalayas being the standout hole, the front 9 is OK with the 9th being a good Par 3 before you cross the road to the Links side of the course. Check out the risk/reward 12th … do you go for it across Samson’s Bay?

I visited Porthmadog earlier this week and following the review from Teeuplo I decided to give this place a go.

It is as described by Teeuplo, a real hidden gem, our green fee was very reasonable and great value for money.

The course was in great condition and the greens were excellent, I will certainly play again and recommend to any golfer of all levels.
