Golf Course Review

Bull Bay Golf Club, located on the rugged North West Welsh coastline of Anglesey, nine holes were opened for play on August 16, 1913. The proprietor was the Marquis of Anglesey who hoped golf along with tennis and bowling would attract visitors to the area. The Marquis had previously hired Herbert Fowler to layout another course on his land in Staffordshire, Beau Desert!

An inaugural match between James Braid and JH Taylor in the morning. It was noted in the press that the course proved to be quite difficult with the Open Champions posting scores of 83 & 87! This match was followed by a match between James Braid and Herbert Fowler vs. JH Taylor and Tom Simpson in the afternoon. Braid and Fowler took the match 3&2.

By 1925, the club was purchased by the members. In 1962, a new clubhouse was built with funds acquired by selling 12 residential housing lots. The issue? Part of the course needed to be redesigned some of Fowler's original work was lost. In 1974, an oil pipeline was constructed affecting the 11th, 12th and 13th holes. Perhaps providentially, on both occasions, the same part of the course was affected.
