The Montgomerie Golf Course

Offering a spectacular par 69 challenge, the legendary Colin Montgomerie has called on all his Ryder Cup experience to create a course with many exciting tests of strategy.
Architect: Colin Montgomerie / Ross McMurray

Holes: 18 | Par: 69 | Yardage: 6,294

Played it last week – almost every hole has some kind of feature of stunning views – very hilly course that we would recommend a power caddy or buggy for the not so fit.

Every green was consistent to the next and run true and in fantastic condition – Possibly the best we have played on this summer – Lush green and well looked after.

Lots of holes with much danger but at the same time much reward if taken on. There is everything from lakes, ravines, hazards, OB`s, streams and deep overgrowth if shot isn’t executed correctly.

With 5 par 3`s on offer, I would truly say each one is difficult and well designed with the traps in perfect areas avoid them and test your putting ability as not one has a flat landing zone and very undulated.

Highly recommend this course for a day out or even a stay and play and include one of there other fantastic courses – Pop in the Society drop down page on society deals and look at what deals can be had or contact us for more and we can sort the right price out .

What Jim says: Spent a glorious afternoon playing the Montgomerie course in mid August. Teeing off at about 3pm we managed to just about squeeze the full 18 holes into our visit. The views on the course are spectacular and you can really sense the atmosphere of all the previous big tournaments held here. The greens were fab and the holes were challenging but not to hard for an 10 handicapper. Clubhouse is first class and not too expensive and the pro shop is stacked with the latest kit. Great visit all round, thanks Team GG at Generation Golfer and all the team from Celtic Manor Resort – Will be returning very soon. 5* Resort

Peterstone Lakes is a stunning 18 hole golf course set in acres of peaceful Welsh countryside, just outside Cardiff. The course was designed by Bob Sandow and is a par 72. It is a fair but challenging flat course with plenty of water hazards en route.

Peterstone Lakes is also an outstanding venue for weddings, private functions, corporate events and social dinners. Conveniently located just 10 minutes off the M4 between Cardiff and Newport you can be assured of a warm welcome coupled with high standards both on and off the golf course and excellent levels of service.

Peterstone Lakes is a favourite choice of venue when planning a society day, company or corporate golfing occasion. Where else could you host the evening presentation dinner in your own private suite for up to 150 guests.

Team GG was invited to join the Samlet golf society on a fabulous sunny Sunday at PeterStone Lakes Golf Club, been a few years since we last played there. The warm welcome we received from the staff was very nice to say the least. 38 golfers arrived early for nice food and beverages before teeing it up from 10am.

The course was in great condition and very happy to be working with such a class venue, each hole has appeal and several holes very scenic to say the least. The samlet society have been using the golf club for over 10 years which say it all. Speaking to many of them throughout the day, they all said much the same about “Value for money and consistently good all year round”

Load of risk and reward holes and many that will catch you out if club selection isn’t chosen, the society play medal and stableford and offered prizes for each hole making the day more exciting and each shot meaning something. Would recommend this venue to small and large groups and they can cater for over 100 plus guests due to the size of dinning facilities and layout of course.

The front nine is certainly easier than the back nine as lots of the holes have water that bring into play if your slightly off line with tee shot, also shot position is critical on around 6 of the holes (very challenging, but fun). Looking forward to a quick return and will showcase this venue to all. Thanks so much to both Samlets and all the team at Peterstone Lakes. 10/10

Situated in the heart of the Gower Peninsula (Britain’s first designated ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), Fairwood Park is set in 150 acres of fabulous woodland and parkland countryside and to this day remains the only golf course within the County of Swansea to have ever hosted a PGA event, a fact that means those who play here should be in no doubt as to the quality of golfing experience that awaits them.

With over 15,000 mature trees and water coming into play on nearly half of its holes, Fairwood Park is an outstanding example of woodland/parkland golf at its best with wide, forgiving fairways which nonetheless punish the most wayward of drives by forcing the overly ambitious to take some ‘wedge medicine’ out of the trees with their 2nd shot!

Invited to review club and course recently and very impressed with condition of course to say the least (Greens possibly the best around after heat wave we have been encountering). Welcomed by Erol and his staff to a very friendly atmosphere and well established venue.

The course has many risk and reward holes “Beware of the hazards and well established trees thou” The bunkers are placed in very good positions from any tee box played from. The greens where very receptive, possibly after the recent down poor and can imagine some would be difficult to hold unless approach was a high ball flight

Being a very flat course and not much of a walk between tee boxes its very well designed and set out, a few driveable hole and a few very long par 4`s specially if played from white tee boxes.

Would recommend this course to all ages and highly rate for society/corporate groups with great deals to be gained “Call us for more details or email us today” if you contact Fairwood Park direct speak with Erol and say Team Generation Golfer sent you “Thanks for a great day out from all the team” The One Stop Shop 4 Golfers”

Machynys Golf Club is the youngest course ever to be awarded an R&A championship. But, whilst Machynys represents a true test for the lower handicapper it is still a thoroughly enjoyable course for the higher handicapper and a corporate and society treat. This becomes possible by utilising up to five tees per hole so the difficulty factor of the golf course becomes the player’s or organiser’s choice making it the perfect venue for your corporate or society golf day.

 

November seen a decent turn out at Glynneath Golf Club on Monday 6th (12 Players arrived 09.30am).

Welcomed in to the very nicely laid out lounge by the golf manager Tim Cole. Overlooking the 1st tee we enjoyed coffee & fresh orange, this followed with a bacon bap for each of the group.

Weather was very kind with blue sky’s above, leaves dropping from the trees with light winds is all you could hear. The course is hidden on amongst the valleys of Glynneath, with views around the well laid out course very nice to say the least.

After playing several holes, it was very noticeable that much work was being carried out around the course. Drainage was much better than the last visit. Tee boxes in good condition considering the rain that had been present for several days prior. Almost all the greens run true to the eye and in very decent condition.

It was nice to see Tim driving round the course and offering refreshments whilst we played the full 18 holes. This gives a very nice touch and hope it continues going into spring/summer months. If you require a buggy to get around the undulated course, there also at a very reasonable price to hire. Several scenic holes, 3, 9, 14, 15 & 16 I would say have much to offer. Many also have two teared greens that makes the club selection very important to come away with a birdie or par.

Would advise any golfer to take a visit and recommend golf society groups to book a day away, we look forward to a speedy return. After the game we enjoyed a few drinks and game of snooker. Food is very good and offer splendid package deals. Contact us today for more information, or just fill out the simple enquiry form located under society offers.

So the last Friday Golf Society rocked up for their annual Match Play having completed another successful summer series, anticipation was building as for the next three days we get a small taste of what being on tour might be like. Upon arrival we was met by the golf services team who tagged our bags then showed us around making us all feel so welcome by the way that was the last time I touch my clubs (apart from playing with them) until I put them away on day three.

Roman Road was our first test which was in excellent condition, especially the greens that were running true and fast – also very difficult to read! Fairways were also very good and the rough was very punishing – so stay on the short stuff if you can! The course had a bit of everything from wide open fairways to some real tight golf holes that need very careful course management at times. The Match Play was a won by the Reds, which did have our handicap secretary playing for them and it didn’t go without notice that a few of the Reds were off their new improved handicaps! (bandits) Our accommodation for our two night stay was the Coldra Court Hotel which is off site but only a few minutes’ drive away from the courses and they actually provide a shuttle service that we took advantage of the following day, as it seem like the Yellows were drowning their sorrows to the early hours! Check in was amazing with 14 golfers all turning up at once and along with other guests arriving at the same time reception was well manned and took no time at all to get us all checked in and our evening meal pre-order list was waiting for us too – there was a slight issue as some of the guys were checked in to double rooms but the hotel staff rectified it straight away to the relief of their roommate. Dinner for both nights was the Rib Smokehouse and Grill with great décor and food alike, service was swift and smooth and kept our glasses top up, although breakfast was a bit of a slower affair when it comes to getting tea and coffee to the tables. You couldn’t fault the friendliness of the staff and the fitness facilities were well equipped.

Day two saw the whole society all getting the shuttle bus to the mecca of golf – The 2010 – now from the moment we were met by the golf service team until the moment we got back on the bus it had the wow factor. A full guided tour of the club house along with a few 2010 stories just to add to the occasion. The locker room, well what can we say very elegant but was surprised with the mood lighting, now we was allocated a locker each, I was lucky enough been allocated Phil Mickelson and when chipping in on holes 3 and 9 It left me think did the locker rub some of Phil’s magic off on me? They have a well stock Pro shop and the lads got well in to the merchandise so well worth a visit, now with the tee times looming we was whisked of VIP style to the range for our warm up – the free range balls went down well and was surprised to see the greens slightly slower than Roman Road and just slightly easier to read. The course itself is a gem which was in excellent condition and every hole seemed to be breath-taking! Be warned it’s a long walk and took us 5.5 hours to play but the well-stocked halfway house was just what the doctor ordered. A little tip is go one club up for all shots on this course it seemed to play long on every hole, this was soon worked out by two of our guys who both nearly got a hole in ones on our nearest the pin – one knocking it to within six inches only to be beaten by the group behind! Having finished on the superb par 5 18th with a testing third shot over the lake to an elevated green where even if you was slightly short you just rolled straight back down in to the waiting lake, it was time to have a post-match pint while the golf services team cleaned and transported our clubs to the Montgomery ready for day three and for us it was time to head back to the hotel for some well-earned R&R.

Day three and the Montgomery which having played The Montgomery in Marrakesh I was looking forward to comparing the two. It started off really well and the third par 5 for me is one of the breath-taking holes I have played to date, it’s a hole where a well-placed tee shot gives a nice downhill second that if correctly executed leaves the average golfer a nice little pitch in to the green. Unfortunately the weather was against us and the heavens opened and play was suspended on the seventh. The disappointment of not completing the round soon turned to joy when the rain check vouchers was offered and the realization that it was an excuse to return again to what was a magnificent golf destination with great staff, great courses, great practice facilities and at a great price thanks Generation golfer!

Great day at Wenvoe Castle Monday 4th Sept with Team Generation Golfer

Welcomed on arrival by Golf Club Professional Jason Harris and Club staff. We all enjoyed the views looking out over the 18th green whilst having lovely breakfast plus tea and coffee included with the super deal given direct. Having Wenvoe linked up as one of our Star golf clubs, we highly recommend a visit.

As for the Golf course: Tip top condition and greens are splendid plus run true to the eye.

1st hole from the tee box is very challenging with danger both left and right and demands a good drive, leaving a long shot in too a protected raised green if you wished to take it on. Its over 500-yard par 5 so recommend laying up giving better chance of scoring on this stroke index 5 on the well laid out course planner.

This followed by a lovely par 3 – raised button green, that just needs accuracy to land smoothly at just over 100 yards

Drivable par 4 3rd slightly down then up to another raised green just over 300 yards, views stunning from the tee.

Again the 4th is a risk and reward drivable 300-yard protected hole, pending on wind direction

The 5th is another par 5 just over 450 yards that requires a risky 2nd shot if challenging the green in 2.

Views from the 6th again super and yet another challenging 300-yard risk and reward drivable hole.

The 7th is stroke index 1 and deserves the right too – tight drive between danger both side with your second shot demanding 2 extra club selection due to the high raised green, again protected all around.

The 8th is another low index over 450 yards downhill all the way with your second shot being blind.

Lovely par 3 9th of which is one for the N/P as it’s a great looking hole and has bunkers in front of the slightly raised green. The tee box tucked back behind trees not allowing you to read wind direction and strength of ball movement.

Back 9 holes in my opinion stand out, and seems a different course.

The 10th is a scenic hole, playing your second shot over the lake to a narrow green protected by button bunkers.

11th is a sloping from right to left between tree lined fairway. Playing your second shot up towards the stunning Club house.

12th is another drivable hole pending on wind condition, again tree lined both sides.

13th long par 5 that can be reached in two if you split the fairway between long grass left or thick trees and O/B right.

14th stroke index 2 over 400 yards and need a great tee shot slightly left side of fairway to give chance of hitting protected green in 2

15th long par 3 playing 200 yards into a tunnel like green with bunkers both sides.

16th & 17th both low index holes and could spoil your card if both tee shots hit correctly. Much risk and reward for both and splendid holes.

18th is class – blind tee shot with deep rough and slope left and high trees right. Hit the fairway and you will have a great looking shot into the green before the outstanding surrounding of the Club house. The view is worthy of a photo every time.

Look forward to returning soon Team GG

Monday 7th August Team GG attended Langland Bay “

“The Pebble Beach of Wales”

Sarah Stirk – Sky Sports Presenter

Arriving early morning and welcomed by each and everyone of the team. Enjoyed breakfast over looking the 18th green and stunning views.

Each of the mixed group from Newport to North Wales travelled to enjoy all that Langland Bay had to offer “Thanks to PGA Director Andrew Minty for arranging the day”.

Very challenging 1st hole, a Par 3 raised green 200 yards with sea breeze cutting across making it a low index start. Followed by a Par 5 makeable in 2 if you hit a narrow target line with bunkers placed smartly with OB and danger both sides of Fairway.

3rd and 4th holes are both drivable with risk of danger if not hit well. Then after each hole offers some of the best views that any golf course could offer “A must play course with undulating greens of a high standard”

  

Along with a perfectly maintained course, today’s players have a right to expect a complete golfing experience that goes beyond a simple 18 holes.
Langland Bay has a long tradition of meeting this demand in every way, in a setting and style that has earned a long-held reverence in British golfing circles.
Recent extensive renovations and improvements mean the club will be able to continue the tradition well into the future, leading the field for unforgettable golf and hospitality.
