The ‘Point’ or the ‘old front nine’ as it was before the additional 9 inland holes were constructed in the 1930’s, is one of the most famous golfing landmarks in Wales.
Some refer to is as the Welsh ‘Pebble Beach‘ but it is more akin to Ireland’s ‘Old Head of Kinsale‘.
The nine holes of narrow fairways and elevated tees and greens run along the narrow peninsula that leads to Porthdinllaen and to the lifeboat station.
Combined with the predominant westerly winds, not only is it visually spectacular, but it is truly a test of your golfing ability as well as your nerve. A head for height is required…
Due to the significant increase in pedestrian activity along the footpaths leading to Porthdinllaen, the 9 holes along the point is available to play during allocated tee times.
