Great round

Plenty of parking and the pro-shop looked great. The course was in superb condition.
I booked the round on GolfNow but when I arrived I was told that GolfNow hadn’t communicated with them. The guy in the proshop said that there was a club comp on - we started from the 10th tee and absolutely loved the challenges that the course gave us.

Beautiful course

On arrival the pro in the shop was extremely helpful and polite. The course is in fantastic condition and a joy to play with some beautiful and stunning veiws. The only let down was that myself and playing partner were in a buggy and got to the 10th hole to be held up for a four ball member group , at no time did they offer us to play through or even make eye contact for that matter which made the round longer than needed to be

Unfortunately booked a day that wasn’t really available due to club competition.
Not a fault of the club. They managed to get me onto the back 9.
Greens just had spring maintenance so not that great.
Would like to come back when able to play full 18

All 18 holes were temporary greens

Would have been nice to know before hand via their website that they all had temporary greens during this time. However didn’t know until we got there which ruined the day. Nice views and some nice holes but ruined the experience

Too many blind holes and also buggy needed.

Fantastic course condition i mean phenomenal how well a course in merthyr is actually kept. So impressed with the greens. Just too many blind holes to make it a regular play also front 9 is very hilly so would use a buggy next time if i did play it again

Great value course with dramatic views

Icy 50 mph gales on the exposed hills made for a tough round but still enjoyed our round on this interesting course. Front 6,15,17 were great holes with some dramatic views.

A fair challenge that will give the longer hitter plenty of chances.

Well worth a visit.

Fun on the mountain side

Every hole is different and the back 9 is more parkland then the front which is very upland. This aid we thoroughly enjoyed the course, would r3commend a buggy of you are not 100% fit. In terms of value for money it’s outstanding, as are the staff. Would definitely play again.

A must play track!

First time around this track, and definitely won't be the last! Course was in fantastic condition, and the the quality of the greens was second to none. The surrounding views from 1 to 18 are a amazing, and the staff friendly and welcoming. If ever in the area, do not miss the chance to play here, great value for money and time we'll spent

Spoilt

When the tee boxes are better than the greens you know your in trouble. From 10 feet was it a putter or wedge? Greens were dreadful- where did the greens start and rough stop?
