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.

Thanks from us all “Because We Care”

 

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.

Generation Golfer:  More than happy to carryout a Golf Club/Course review at Tenby Golf Club (Thanks for the Invite)

Arrived early morning last week on 25th July, weather was lush and welcomed by the staff. Enjoyed a full breakfast of which ticked all the boxes for us all, plenty to choose from a very decent menu.

Being one of the oldest golf clubs in the UK we found the club and surroundings splendid to say the least. “Must visit, stay, play or just enjoy the food, drink and venue”. Spoke for over an hour with David Hancock, club Manager & Team.

“Golf Course with so much to offer, risk & reward, undulating greens, blind challenging shots, fantastic scenery, tip top condition 12months of the year, main greens and tees, splendid drainage, one of the few courses that allow buggies & carts throughout the calendar months”

Great facilities and top class venue, Tenby town is within easy reach, stones throw from the beach, value for money all year round.

Generation Golfer will be linking up many Society Groups with confidence that they will return “Highly Recommend to all”

Thanks so much & look forward to meeting up again very, very soon.

Club History:

Tenby Golf Club was formally established in 1888, but by most accounts there were enthusiasts knocking balls around the links and sand dunes by at least 1875. In any event, experts agree that Tenby stands out as the birthplace of Welsh golf, with the course adapted from a 9-hole to 18-hole course in 1907. Tenby was also one of the founding members of the Welsh Golfing Union.

Golf was more or less exclusively a Scottish sport from the late medieval period onward, and only started spreading throughout the British Isles during the 19th century. Tenby was very much at the forefront of the new wave of this emerging sport.

The Club evolved in line with the bustling resort of Tenby next door, which began attracting visitors in Victorian times. They were lured by the new craze of “sea-bathing”, as well as by Tenby’s reputation as a spa town and health resort. Part of the Club’s original appeal for these first golfers may have been the same as the resort’s – the fact that the town’s sheltered position provided a partial shield from the winds of the Bristol Channel.

89266132-a13a-11df-8552-001ec9b331b2As the birthplace of Welsh golf the Club acquired a certain prestige, attracting a cluster of local and national celebrities to the links – including the renowned statesman and Prime Minister, David Lloyd George. He became a regular on the links, and is pictured second from the left in the group photo below. He also owned a house in Tenby town.

The first competition was held on October 25th 1888 over nine holes, and was won by Mr TA Rees. He scored gross 51, net 41 off a handicap of 10. The first inter-club home match was against Swansea Bay in April 1895, with Tenby winning 15-13. The Club’s inaugural AGM was held in 1889, by which date the Club had a total of 44 members.

To the right are pictures of Tenby’s first green keeper back in 1888, and below that you can see a group in front of Black Rock taken in October 1908. From left to right are: R Hutton Esq; The Right Hon Lloyd-George; Mrs Clifton, and the Rev J Morris.

One of the most famous sporting figures who has graced the Club was Dai Rees, who was a massive figure in British golfing either side of the second world war. Rees, who won 39 world titles during his career, had a great affection for Tenby, and a particular affinity for the course’s third hole with its need for absolute precision when approaching the green. The hole is now named in his honour.

Societies

Society Packages

Dating from the 1870’s Tenby Golf Course has fantastic views of the rugged Pembrokeshire coast.  Designed by James Braid one of the features of the course is the sublime quickness and resilience of the greens.  This means the balls usually fly fast and true, and that you can play throughout the year.

We’re always happy to welcome golfing societies to Tenby Golf Club.

Society days can be designed to meet a wide range of requirements for groups of 12+ golfers.

The Course

57d4866a-654b-11e0-ad34-001ec9b331b2Tenby’s classic links course beguiles visitors with its mellow undulating greens and awesome sea views. You’re never far away from a dazzling vista of the sea, and at the high point of the course on the 17th hole you can catch a sublime glimpse of the coastal waters and Caldey Island beyond.

We’re proud of the fact that we generally play 365 days a year without pause – due to the way the sandy terrain drains and absorbs rainwater. Our buzz words are ”when it rains it drains!”. This means the course doesn’t turn into bog land in poor weather and is usually accessible by electric buggy.

Tenby is not in the style of a manicured parkland course. When you tee off here you sometimes have to factor the natural terrain into your game. Playing here is often described as golf at its most natural, with rolling fairways, rising dunes, and now and then the occasional tricky pot bunker and blind shot. This doesn’t mean it’s a rough course; the greens are consistently in immaculate condition and run fast and true. It is in fact a course that caters for both novice and veteran.

The lie of the course developed naturally in parallel with the dunes and wild grasses surrounding the greens, but it took the influence of the pioneering designer James Braid to help shape the route into its current character as a “classic links course”.

The greens and fairways here are always fast and consistent, but Tenby has its quirks as a course, ensuring that you must play a canny game to avoid being caught out by the hazards of the rough. Tenby is always a highly rewarding course, but many of the holes require a deft touch when teeing off. As one perceptive golfing journalist has put it, “at Tenby a little restraint goes a long way”.

It was probably the courses’ idiosyncrasies that so appealed to the celebrated Welsh Ryder Cup player, Dai Rees, whose affection for Tenby was such that the third hole ended up being named after him.

Some golfers who return to Tenby after playing over more sedate courses in the cities or suburbs find that they’ve missed out on the sheer unpredictability of the links here. Another element to consider in your approach is the wind. Although the south-westerly’s don’t maraud in as hard as on the Atlantic coast to the west, the wind is still going to be a strong factor here – especially if you’re teeing off directly into it. That said, you tend to get more shelter from the elements after you get past the early holes.

For some players unaccustomed to its ways and whims, Tenby can appear to be a “tough” course, but the truth is it just takes time to understand the shape of the land – a bit like getting acquainted with the detailed landscape of your back garden!

The total length of the course is 6,613 yards.

Invited to The Players Golf Club in Bristol by the Team from Boardroom Golf Club. Firstly is was great to be a guest amongst so many business linked people. The concept behind Boardrooms Club is to bring business clients together, playing a round of golf on top venues meeting greeting and potentially opening doors for future ventures.

First time at The Players Club, it was a pleasure playing such a challenging championship Course: Situated just one mile from junction 18 of the M4 (Bristol/Bath) on the outskirts of Bristol bordering Wiltshire and Gloucestershire ‘The Players Club’ is dedicated to the game of golf. With  two 18 hole courses, a 9 hole Par 3 course and together with first class practice facilities it has become home to many golf professionals competing on the European tours. We have staged nine SKY televised Europro events, five West Region PGA championships and the English Over 48s championship three times as well as regional finals for many top amateur and professional events. In 2017 we hold stage 1 qualification for the Europro tour for the eleventh time. The club opened in 2002 and was quickly ranked 113 in  the Golf World 2006 ‘Best Courses in Great Britain and Ireland’. All the courses have been built to the finest specifications with USGA greens, fairway irrigation and a rich landscape with woodland, lakes and gorse all coming into play. The courses are designed by Adrian Stiff who also designed highly rated neighbours Cumberwell Park and The Kendleshire. It’s flagship Codrington course, is designed to test you, thrill you and frustrate in equal measure, with the Stranahan course requiring positional play and is ideal for higher handicappers, ladies and seniors.

Looking forward to working with Boardroom Golf Club going forward and honestly believe much success becomes:

What is Boardroom Golf Club?

Boardroom Golf was created to bridge that gap. The concept was to build a network of business owners that shared a common passion for the game that could network with their ideal business partners whilst playing a competitive series of tournaments on some of the best local courses.

Application to join the club is through a strict vetting procedure to ensure the right calibre of individuals and businesses become members. As such, membership of the club provides members with an excellent opportunity to network and engage with other businesses and develop new relationships and opportunities.

Had a Top Class day at “GARNANT GOLF CLUB” Well worth a visit excellent value for money

 

Firstly, would like to thank the Players from Machynys Peninsula Golf and Country Club, The Grove Golf Club, Ashburnham Golf Club & Mond Valley for attending a great day out. All gave fantastic feedback.

Every green is well positioned and very much an Augusta like undulation challenge. (Practice your putting prior, quality condition with true reads and speeds)  

Garnant Golf Club is set on a hill side, so walking is also demanding. Several Diesel Buggies available priced reasonably (Book prior). The Club offers meal deals linked to many different golf bundles, idea for Golf Society groups or just pay & play roaming golfers.

The celebrity Cup takes place every year for charity at the Celtic Manor resort – having three fantastic golf courses spread over aches and aches of land, boosting to have held the Ryder Cup in 2010 on the (Twenty Ten). The celeb cup is played currently on 9 holes around the glorious roman road complex. It was split a few years ago with the third great course, Montgomery. This 5 Star resort is a must visit, stay or play and we can help.

Generation golfer spent a few hours late into June, with Tom Bevan the events executive. The meeting went very well and Signed up to work together going forward.

On the back of that, Richie from team GG spent the weekend at the resort assisting with the celebrity cup. Arriving early Saturday 1st July, I walked around taking in the fabulous condition and layout ready for the annually event (England, Wales, Scotland & Ireland challenge for the trophy)

The weather was splendid over the two-day event and thousands of families and happy people enjoyed the fun filled weekend. Plenty of things going on around the tented area and surrounding areas. Also prior to each session morning and afternoon, Trick shot shows and committing takes place. Plenty of seating areas or upgrade to hospitality zone, and rub shoulders with celebs.

The celebrities spent time chatting with the public and having pictures taken on request. You could even purchase a small booklet with picture profiles of each celeb that many individuals would get signed, again every celeb would kindly take up.

This year sponsored by Bulmer’s to name but a few and priced reasonably along with the many outlets serving hot or cold food.  

Highly rate this event and will return next July 2018 (log into your diaries).  Contact enquiries@generationgolfer.com for more information or booking rates.

Arrived early Monday 26th June 2017 with my son and caddie for the day. The weather was fine and wind speeds around 10mph of which is calm for porthcawl and links golf.

Holding the seniors open between the 27th & 30th July again this year, we expected the surroundings and club house in perfect condition (this was true). Welcomed by all in pro shop of which was well stocked with branded items and designer gear at reasonable cost.

Changing rooms and shower room in very nice order with a taste of its age and tradition. Again, met several of the members who welcomed us both to this splendid heritage golf club.

The Course

The 7,000-plus yard course was laid out first on nearby Lock’s Common until cattle, camping and carriage wheels combined to be too much of a nuisance and it moved a few yards to its present site, which contains rather more elevation than is present at many seaside courses. The routing of the course at first follows the sea and when played into a freshening wind the first three holes present a stern challenge. In such conditions, the players who arrives on the fourth tee having taken no more than 12 strokes has played well indeed. The approach shots to the second and third in particular call for that rare combination of skill and courage as the greens lie perilously close to out of bounds.

Then the course turns inland and twists and winds over terrain that could be described as uplands. By the 18th, the hallmarks of a links course have reappeared and from the tee of that hole the fairway slides gently downhill towards a green that sometimes resembles an infinity pool as it merges into the water behind it.

Although the course is rarely becalmed, and indeed needs a decent wind to set the flags rippling and crackling, a climatic conundrum renders it more benign than might have been expected of one so close to the sea. Local lore has it that as storms blow across the south-west of England, they divide when they hit the foreshore, one section heading east to Cardiff and one west to Swansea.

 

The Club has hosted many championships including the Walker Cup, Ladies Open Championship, Curtis Cup, The Amateur Championship and The Senior Open Championship to name a few. The Club prides itself on providing Members and guests with a friendly warm welcome and first-class customer service.

Golfers are encouraged to visit and experience Royal Porthcawl Golf Club. A world class golf course with practice facilities to match and a Clubhouse serving fine food and beverage.
