Excellent Value £14 golf now £1 booking Fee on a Sunday can't argue with that had the course virtually to ourselves few juniors having a competition behind but we where never rushed Sheep are everywhere but adds to the course, In very good condition all round very easy to find from Holywell in Brynford well recommend this course even though it's up in the hills of North Wales it's reasonably flat.
Holywell Golf Course
Great Quirky course with the wandering friendly sheep. Staff couldn’t do enough! Very friendly and happy to help. Bit of a links course and a good challenge. Scenery great throughly enjoyed the golf and the people
Well worth the fee!
Such a strange course, more Lincs than most seaside courses... It's challenging, it requires thought and execution but luck may be involved. It's tight so fore is always needed! The greens were ok, Augusta national can rest easy, but they were playable. The club house staff and the members we met were very friendly and welcoming, the drinks and food excellent and reasonably priced. All in all, highly recommended.
Variation on a Theme
Although we were disappointed to find out there were 5 holes closed because of overnight rain, the Professional went to great pains to ensure we enjoyed a full 18 hole experience. The members on the course were very welcoming and chatty, which further enhanced our day. The course itself was a new experience for us, having played on parkland courses in the main, the fairways looked like they had been subjected to a meteorite attack some years ago leaving craters which have since recovered by grass growth. This gives the course it's own unique feature and adds to it's quirkiness.
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our round around Holy well and would not hesitate to recommend it to others
A hidden gem
Fantastic course, spoke to Graham who is a member when we arrived and he was very helpful with giving us tips and advice. Got a warm welcome off Josh who is the club's pro. The course was in excellent condition and the views where amazing, would highly recommend this lovely, unique course to anyone whose reading this review.
fantastic course for this time of year greens where in amazing condition staff were very friendly recommend this course for a good game of golf
Excellent deal for an excellent course, can be hard getting t times for this course but using golf now certainly helped. Course was in excellent condition and definitely recommend anyone to go and play it.
We played Holywell recently and it was the first time that I had played the course for a couple of years. It is a favourite of mine and one that I would recommend to anyone who is in this neck of the woods.
The welcome in the pro shop was, and always has been, one of the friendliest that you will come across. It makes such a difference when you are met by a smile from someone who is passionate about their course and about wanting to ensure that you have a great experience. The members we encountered were also friendly and playing briskly.
The course itself is situated quite high up and there are lovely views to enjoy. The first 9 holes has some long par 4's and some testing par 3's. It is October and so you may struggle to reach the par 4's because the ball doesn't roll much and also because it may get intercepted by one of several hundred sheep that graze the fairways quite contentedly.
The back 9 is a famed 'inland links' course with contours laid down from mining activity in byegone centuries. There are bumps, hollows and hummocks, so plenty of testing lies. The 10th is a glorious par 5 and a real highlight- the best 10th hole in North Wales? On the back 9 we have little in the way of semi rough- here, close-mown grass give way to many gorse thickets that line the fairways so staying on the short stuff is really at a premium. Keep your eyes open for the beautiful small birds that have a preference for a gorse lifestyle.
In summary, you can't go wrong at this understated coures that gives you great enjoyment at exceptional value.
Holywell 1st timer
Great course, a little tight for me as a high handicapper, would have benefitted from a detailed course guide with club choice.
Greens were excellent.
Would definitely return for another round or two.
Great parkland course
I found the pro shop and the clubhouse staff to be extremely friendly the course was great fun and had some quirky holes it was interesting to see the sheep grazing on the fairways but it was obvious they were used to people as they soon moved away when you moved to the Tee, however just be careful of the sheep doo.
We all had a fantastic day and will definitely return, great course great value for a money.
Good value golf
A good golf course which never gets too busy.
Only downsides are sheep crap everywhere and greens a bit slow.
Interesting moorland course
Played the course in early July 21. Found it to be compact with narrow fairways on some holes. Good mix of par threes, fours and fives. Unusually, the course seems to be managed by grazing sheep in places and one needs to be aware of sheep pooh! There are few bunkers and the greens were quicker than I was used to so some adjustments to chips and putts were required. Overall, a good golfing experience especially for the price paid via the Golf Now website. Facilities were fine and staff in the pro’s shop we’re very welcoming. Will play again soon. Highly recommended course in a lovely setting.
