Gower Golf Club Course Review

As you drive into the car park at ‘The Gower’ you are confronted by a glorious vista over the Lougher estuary. As you pan to the right you look up the Swansea valley to the Brecon Beacons with Pen y Fan coated in snow on this occasion.

‘The Gower’ is a meadowland course with wide fairways and a good range of holes from challenging par fives to idyllic par threes. The fairways are well defined and the greens were in very good condition, even in the grip of a late winter spell.

One of our favourite holes was the downhill, par 5, eighth, when a good drive gives you the brave option of going for the green in two over water, or the more sensible option of laying up, hoping to chip and putt for a birdie.

Also the ninth par three is a lovely hole, which at stroke index 4 appears to be a dawdle until you try and hit the green in one.

There is ample accommodation for up to 22 people in well appointed twin rooms adjacent to the club house where you will experience a warm welcome from all the staff. For day visitors changing and showering facilities are excellent.

If it is your intention to experience the golfing possibilities that the beautiful Gower peninsula has to offer then, with the course, the accommodation, clubhouse facilities and excellent food at reasonable prices , ‘The Gower’ provides an eminently suitable base from which to operate.
