We were the only people on the course when we arrived and throughout our 9 holes. The course was okay though the bunkers needed a lot of imagination. Wondered why the rake was in one when there was hardly any sand, only vegetation.
It was a hot morning and took about an hour to play the course. Looking forward to a drink it was disappointing to find that, despite the info on the website, there was no opportunity to buy a drink. The cafe was being changed to a holiday let! Would have thought it would be possible to have a cold cabinet in the shed and sell cold cans.
Overall, disappointing,would be reluctant to recommend. Sorry.

Sorry you felt the way you did, the new website does say that it is only nine holes now. I would have thought it was quite good to be the only ones on the course as so many pitch & puts are too crowded. We are to have a fridge in the new clubhouse but haven't managed to get it yet.

Really sorry to be the first to post a negative review, but I visited this week with my two teenage children & the course was very wet & boggy.

The ball was caked in mud each time it landed.

Furthermore, the course is now just 9 holes & not 18 !

A very helpful chap greeted us, providing as many balls / tees etc. as we needed and did advise the course had been shortened but didn’t warn of the wet conditions.

I hope it’s drier in the summer months, but we won’t be giving it another try.

Needless to say we didn’t complete the round as it wasn’t particularly enjoyable.

Really sorry to hear of the difficult times you experienced on our course. We have tried to let people know that the course is not good at the moment due to the unusual amount of rain that the county has had to put up with. We have changed the course into a 9 hole but have advertised as much. We are in a state of flux at the moment as we are converting the old clubhouse into a holiday let and obviously have had to change the course around. I do hope that you change your mind and come and see us once the weather has improved.

I visited here with my wife and two teenage daughters and surprisingly they were both up for a round of golf. It took us about 3 hours to do the 18 holes. It's a lovely little course with some nice views. It's perfect for beginners or those not wanting a serious game. It was very quiet with only a couple of other families on the course. We also took the dog around with us but she had to stay on the lead, being a ball obsessed dog this was obviously torture for her. I would definitely recommend this for an afternoons fun and some exercise.

Found this course on trip advisor, wanted somewhere not too strict, where non players could learn, where the cost wasn't prohibitive, well here it is, fantastic little course, 18 holes, so 3 hours of golf, holes range from 47 yards to the challenging 18th of 112 yards over the bushes. Club hire, bag, tees, balls (no charge for lost balls), all for £7 per person.
My wife had never played before and really picked it up and we all thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon.

I love visiting Gwinear Pitch and Putt. They are super friendly and I enjoy playing a bit of golf and enjoying some food in the cafe (great vegan options is a bonus!) Highly recommend for a fun day out.
