Nice course, shame about ...


With the sun shining even intermittently, it’s time to plan our next golf break. Last time we were on Anglesey where we have a billet close to the Princes' Course at Henllys Hall. I think it’s a great place to play, well-kept and not particularly busy with great views over the Menai Straits towards Llandudno and the Great Orme. Recently they have opened a new clubhouse and I’m impressed with the food – good choice and reasonable prices. Just one black mark from the Green Goddess. There’s a steep climb at the start, and the eighteenth is also up hill, i.e. by the end, despite (or because of) the quality of the course, I am usually pretty knackered and in dire need of refreshment/consolation. Arriving back in this state mid-morning, I headed for the bar to discover I had to make my own coffee from one of those machines with sachets and a number of buttons to press. Sorry, not good enough. After eighteen holes I deserve to be waited on hand and foot!
BTW if you are going to Anglesey there's now an Anglesey Golf Pass. Five rounds for £79. Sounds good to me.
