We were at Porthmadog golf club today, for the start of the Mizuno wales tour of the 2023 season.
Porthmadog has been described as one of the most enjoyable tests of seaside golf on the British Isles. And it’s not hard to see why.
The mixture of heathland and natural links weave menacingly through the sand dunes of Tremadog Bay, providing a real test of golf. Expect stunning vista views along the Llyn Peninsula.
The par four 12th calls for a drive over a small bay and a second shot to a plateau green, but it’s the ‘Himalayas’ that’s likely to stick in your memory.
This 387 yard par four demands a drive over a huge natural bunker that hides the fairway from the tee. Which is no small challenge.
Day 2 of the day 5 day trip. Porthmadog has a parkland feel front 9 and a unbelievable scenic links back 9.
The 13th tee box is the best I’ve ever seen! Conditions a dream again in our Welsh micro climate.
Mid teens and a steady breeze.Firm fairways and slow links greens proved very tough to master.
5 par 3s today, the 2 on the back 9 were super tough- well done to anyone who hit those greens!!
Shot of the day has to be Richard Watson who never feathered from the fairways!!
Shoutout to Matthew Upton, who won Longest drive for men on the 18th hole with a whopping shot down the middle!
Best Dressed goes to Ian Morgan dressed as a lemon 🍋
