Worth the fee
Course was the best condition iv seen in years... Pace was not good 3 older members playing super slow and wouldn't let us through stuck behind them from hole 6... But that did give more time to take in the course natural beauty i suppose.. Definitely an improvement the club could make is push the pace of play issue to its members (we were a 3 ball and still tight behind them)
Tough course but good!
Ponty is definitely a tough course, its very narrow in places and very steep, as its on a mountain, but its a nice course with great views of the valley below. Unless you’re an extremely good golfer, you definitely need either a buggy or a powered trolley, as its a beast to push a standard trolley or carry! Ive played twice on my own now and the other members always ask if I’d like to join them (If they’re in a 2 or 3 ball), so all very friendly and accepting of visitors. After the round, they have a lovely club house, where you can get a drink and weather depending, sit outside and watch people finish on the 18th green! Great pro shop too, Rob is particularly good, very friendly, great knowledge of the course and a top bloke. Will definitely play again.
Great morning of golf!
First time playing the course. Welcoming staff and a great course lay out. Great fairways!
I can image in the winter or after heavy rain the course might get boggy due runoff from the slope.
If you can’t face a hard walk get a buggy
I visited this course for the firs time after having a round cancelled at another course. It was a very much 'lovals membership' vibe course. I could not find my way in to the clubhouse to check in. Eventually when I did, i was simply met by a guy on a phone call who asked for my name and said "yeah just go straight out". I didnt get a scorecard or any guidance about the course.
The course was only operating 9 holes and they were a mix across the course. 2nd hole was temp green about 100 yards short (apprecaite with weather the difficult conditions).
I went down the third hole before being told that it was not open (there was a flag there to play to). The two guys i spoke to did help direct me though which was kind of them.
After the 7th, i had to go to the 11th. There were no signs, no guidance of how to get to the right hole. I went to three different tee boxes before finally finding it. The 12th was so waterlogged it should not have been open really. 17th temp green again over 100yds shorter.
Once i got to the 18th I realised why there was so much poo on the golf course. There were sheep just walking across the course as I am playing.
I would not recommend this course in the winter at any time and I definitely wont go back.
Overall a very hilly course. Only nine holes were in play (1,2,5,6,7,11,12,17,18) due to conditions of the course. Two of which had a temporary green in the middle of the fairway as the actual greens were under repair.
In general, the course was very boggy and not very well signposted. May try again in the summer.
Disappointing experience and waste of money
Only a select 9 holes in play and a few temp pins situated on fairways. Wasn’t told about this when booked and hard to navigate where the next hole was. Massive Let down. Won’t be returning
Wet and mouldy! Too many blind holes and criss crossing!
Don't enjoy this course! There were too many holes where you play across one another. We were nearly got by wayward balls a few times!
lovely course greens in perfect condition nice layout of course only downfall was the 2 par 5s going up hill bit of a struggle
Unfortunately there was a seniors match in front of us so took over five hours to play. Really enjoyed each hole but there was too much crossing fairways.
Off the course, bar didn’t open until midday, then after the round very hot ordered four beers and 2 pints tap water, got charged £1 pint for tap water.
Great course with outrageous views!
Played this course for the first time a couple of weeks back, and can safely say I will be returning very soon. Weather was great on the day, course was in great condition and the views from the course were outstanding! Plenty of opportunities for risk reward shots which are unforgiving if you don’t pull them off. Plenty of variation on holes which all tie in together to give the course it’s own fantastic identity. Can’t wait to get back and have another shot at this gem. The only thing I would suggest is if you don’t consider yourself fit to hire a buggy!
