Was a member 15 years ago at Wenvoe.

A fantastic course probably one of the best in Wales.

Haven't played for 3 years.

Thoroughly enjoyed 2 games in last 6 weeks.

Going to rejoin club on a 100 points basis for £325 a year which will allow me to play 2 games per month midweek approx.

Excellent day at Wenvoe Castle.

Highly recommend the course.

Really enjoyable round. Very interesting layout with each hole offering something different. Fairways were in good condition and greens were excellent, especially been quite early in the year. Pro shop very friendly and accommodating, also nice bar and friendly staff to enjoy a beer after your round! Look forward to returning sometime in the future.

Having booked the tee time for 1:38 I believed our party would have plenty of time to finish out round. ( forgetting the clocks went back). As a group we decided we could easily get all 18 holes in if we got buggies. We were refused buggies from the shop as they needed them - although there was only one group of women playing behind us.

The course itself played great, the fairways were superb and the greens were quick.

Overall I would play again, but being very up and down would need a buggy.

Course was in exceptional condition, clearly laid out for first-time visitors and presents a good (and quite different) challenge

Can't wait to play there again

Arrived at course having booked through tee of times but found I had inadvertently booked the wrong course. However the gentelman in the shop not only fitted us in but contacted tee off times and managed to get my booking changed. I am extremley greatfull to him and the contact at tee off times for there exceptional help. Now to the golf the course was in pristeen condition. We played ok but feel we should have done better however it was our fist time. When we go to the area we will definately try again. Once again thanks to the staff for making our day very pleasent.

Turned up for our tee time to find 4 groups qued on the 1st tee. We were advised this was a delayed competition so we were unable to play through as a 2, resulting in a round of over 4 hours. Tee times should not be advertised within an hour of any competition, particularly when those that play in it take forever to play a round of golf

I'm 60 and only been playing 2 years, so a novice. The first 9 are very hilly, back 9 less so. Greens were in good condition and quite fast but tees were hard and I experienced some difficulty in pushing in my tees. Very little water; only one pond to overcome. Fairways are mostly very wide but I still found the course challenging. I didn't use the changing rooms or clubhouse hence I've not completed the star rating for the off-course amenities.
