A modern links style layout overlooking Carmarthen Bay and the Gower Peninsula and already home to the European Tours 'Ladies Championship of Europe', Machynys has already earned itself an enviable reputation as the UK's best new golf course.
Machynys Peninsula Golf & Country Club is situated on the site of a sixth century monastery, hence the name Monks. Monks Health Club houses a 35-station gym with luxury spa facilities, jacuzzi, beauty treatment rooms, steam and sauna and a specialist aromatherapy room.
The shaping of the £3.5m course layout has included the creation of 25 acres of new lakes - salt and fresh water - 12 miles of irrigation pipes and six miles of drainage pipes, to ensure the course is in top condition all year round.
Gary Nicklaus - who has been overseeing the project design on behalf of his father, the legendary Jack Nicklaus - has identified some of his favourite and most challenging holes as the 4th, 5th, 16th, and 18th. Naming the fourth, "the most unique, a short-ish par 4 but a very challenging and a difficult one nonetheless."
He goes onto say: "The 16th, a par 4 that is played across the lake from right behind the clubhouse is probably one of the most beautiful holes on the course. The view from the green of the whole bay is spectacular, whether the tide is in or out."
