Challenging

Nice course and not too long but it's very hilly and very steep on a lot of holes.
The day was spoilt really due to 4 elderly gents who shared two buggys that held us up from the very first tee including everyone behind us and they had nobody in front of them. (past captains I was told they were!!!! )
Eventually let us through on the 14th hole.
You really should know better gents.

Great course

Course was in great condition with greens playing true. Can be a bit of a tough walk, but it’s worth it for the experience of playing such a great course

Didn’t disappoint

A very well kept course, greens and fairways were in excellent condition. A long and pretty hilly course but don’t let that stop you.

Great course !

Played this course several times, aswell as many others around the south wales area and I must say, wenvoe is head and shoulders above the rest for all round quality.
Love the course that much i decided to become a member.
Wont find a better course in south wales and thats including cottrell park and the vale.
Wenvoe is the best

1st round of 2022

Course in great condition even after some bad weather of late. Unfortunately had to miss two holes out due to fallen trees on fairways due to storm damage. Greens fantastic for this time of year.

Good value for money

Course was in good condition considering the weather we've had recently and it was a cloudy dry and very windy day but was a really enjoyable round.

November Golf

Very classy course in excellent condition for this time of year.
It's a good sturdy walk or meander depending on how you play.
The greens are the best of any course recently played. They are fast, very fast, even with drizzle on them! So be warned they are a score killer. If we could put better the scoring could have been great.
Fairways are cut to a nice length and yes there's some mud but as long as your playing winter rules and giving it a clean and a decent lie you have a good chance.
Their were very few leaves on the course making for a much better experience. Well done in clearing those.
Beware the BBC weather app does lies to you. 18% maximum chance of rain! Wrong it hardly stopped raining in 4 hours. That was the only real minus of the day
The lounge bar and terrace would be fantastic in the summer. Two greens, a tee of area and a welcome pint.
This course will be played again. Thanks to all staff and especially Jason in the pro shop.
