Clyne Golf Course

At the gateway to the spectacular Gower Peninsula lies Clyne Golf Club, its course commanding wonderful views in all directions. It overlooks Swansea and Mumbles to the East, the Bristol Channel to the South, the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons to the North and the commanding heights of Gower’s Cefn Bryn to the West.

The Club was founded, and Clyne Golf Club Limited was registered in 1921.

The planning, design and layout of the course were entrusted to Messrs. H.S.Colt and Harries, the leading golf course architects of the day. The original layout established all the important features and it is to the credit of the architects that the course has remained virtually unchanged to this day.

The course is laid out on the high ground of Clyne Common about 300 to 400 feet above sea level. The turf is of the moorland type, although gradually changing in character over the years as a result of fertilisation. There are, owing to the undulating nature of the ground, many natural hazards, apart from the large number of strategically placed bunkers. There is also gorse and bracken in profusion, with some trees.

The large greens are generally in excellent condition, with all year round grass tees.

The course offers a challenging test of golf to all handicap levels and at 6,323 yards and Par 70/SSS 72, is definitely not at track to take on lightly.

The expansive course consists of two separate loops of 9 holes-virtually a figure of 8-with the result that there is no interference from “crossing” and a minimum of congestion. The course offers a 2 tee starting system with the 1st & 10th tees situated in front of the clubhouse.

The course is featured in Peter Alliss’s book “The 200 Best Courses in the British Isles”. Interestingly, Peter Aliss’s father, Percy, was Clyne’s first Professional from 1920 to 1926.

Practice facilities are arguably unrivalled in the area consisting of an expansive area, 300 yards in length, with 6 target greens, a putting green, a chipping green and 2 outdoor nets. In addition, there is an indoor practice facility fully equipped with video recording equipment operated by the Professional. Clyne has been awared “Centre of Excellence” status by the Golf Foundation as a result of the successful work undertaken with the development of Junior Golf.

Thanks for all your help. It was an excellent trip and I would be more than happy to recommend you in the future
