Golf Clubs in Penmaenmawr
With three mountains surrounding as a back drop and the coastline in front, Penmaenmawr (Pen) is as challenging in golf as it is stimulating in scenic beauty. When the view is as magnificent as seen on a balmy summers day, it is worth enduring some of the slopes on the course. Pen is truly, one of the sights of the golfing world - with the Great Orme Head rising out of the sea by Llandudno and the distant outline of Anglesey and Puffin Island across the Menai Straits.
Constructed in 1910, the course itself is equally magnificent. Dry stone walls bisect the fairways with devastating effect if you have an errant drive, especially on the 2nd, 7th and 16th holes. Although there is not a par 5 on the course, when you walk off the 5th, you'll be convinced that there are four feet in the Welsh yard!
The greens are well maintained and several of them are elevated. It takes an experienced eye to read them and when in doubt, remember all the greens slope towards the sea.
