Chose a rainy Saturday afternoon to attempt to access this pillar. Climbed over the gate mentioned by mickandshane and onto the course. Got shouted at by one golfer but just because I was in the way of his shot. I then helped another to locate his ball so all was cool. The trig was simple to find from there. It was just a pity I couldn't hang around too long to take in the view properly.

Parked by the footpath near to Minffordd. Walked through an open gate into what looks like a well used dog walking area. Found a warn path leading up the hill onto the golf course. Walked along the edge of the golf course and straight to the trig.

No plug. Private. Bangor Golf Club. Through blue gate on lane [Lon Pobty, from Bangor High St] - sign saying "Private" but no warning about trespassing. Keep to left round edge of golf course & trig at very top, right next to 14th tee. Only 5 minutes from the lane.

Caernarfonshire. Easy access from near road junction to southwest into field then slope of bracken, which is no problem in winter months. Plug missing.

A trig pillar just above Bangor. The pillar is in good condition and can be quite easily reached from the road through the golf course entrance. However the golf course is private property and there are many signs indicating procecution for non-members if caught!

Take the footpath from the south west for about 150 metre and then there's an old metal gate you can climb over to get onto the golf course - saves thrashing about through bracken/gorse etc. No golfers at the time of our visit so no problem. Plug missimg.

Only 200m from the road to the SW with access where the FP leaves but a major slope of bracken awaits a wrong choice of field making it hard going seems to be a trend for these "easy" NW Trigs

Your standard production concreate pillar, situated on a golf course. Affords excellent views of the City of Bangor, although slightly dwarffed by the radio mast now erected nearby. Spider and hocks still there but the plug is missing. Also unknown origin of stickers displaying 23 on FB.
