Gower Golf Club – Course Review:

Gower Golf Club is situated in a beautiful part of West Wales that boasts some idyllic views of the Gower Peninsula. As you approach the course you are greeted by a modern club house that has a contemporary interior to match as well as on-site accommodation should you wish to ‘Play & Stay’.

With a stunning vista in the foreground a gentle start to the round awaits with a potentially ‘drivable par 4’ (a driver isn’t recommended for the first swing of the day) which leads on to a number of lengthy par 4’s and reachable par 5’s.

Perhaps the best view on the course is the breath-taking backdrop that greets you whilst on the green at the par 5 sixth hole, with the Loughor Estuary flowing amongst the rolling green Welsh hills it’s hard to concentrate on your putting stroke…….definitely a photo opportunity! The front 9 offers a number of challenges with both draws & fades required to find some of the winding fairways. Just when you think you’ve done the hard bit (finding the dancefloor in regulation) the odd two-tiered green presents itself and throws up a puzzling challenge to say the least. The back 9 is the longer of the two 9’s and a driver will be required from holes 12 to 18 for most golfers who want to give themselves the best look at birdie. Even though the back 9 is longer in length it is probably the easier of the two 9’s, but don’t feel the need to relax too much as a number of trees line most of the fairways and are ready to gobble up any wayward tee shots!

A strong par 4 to finish requires a drive hugging the left hand side of the fairway to give you the shortest approach to the green.

After your round you will receive a warm welcome in the well-appointed bar that offers good sustenance and a number of beverages should you wish to drowned your sorrows or hopefully celebrate a great round of golf!

All in all Gower Golf Club is a picturesque parkland course that offers a good test of golf, which is playable enough for the holiday golfer to enjoy and challenging enough to examine the skills of even the best of golfers. Well maintained fairways and true putting surfaces ensure that you’ll have the best possible opportunity to score well and enjoy your round! Why not try out the course for yourself?
