Aberdovey Golf Club is set within the beautiful area of the Snowdonia National Park, more specifically just outside of the village from which it takes its name, which you will find in the county of Gwynedd in North Wales.
The links are placed perfectly in between two spectacular sights: the shores of the Dovey Estuary and the mountains of the Cambrian range. This allows you to enjoy some impressive views as you make your way from one hole to the next; make sure to take full advantage of them.
A large number of great architects have had a hand in Aberdovey Golf Club’s current form, including Harry Colt, James Braid and Herbert Fowler. From those names alone, you know that the course is going to be a good one; it is clearly of no surprise that it’s consistently rated in the Top 100 Golf Courses in the UK & Ireland.
It’s not a long course by today’s standards – measuring approximately 6500 yards in length, but with its ever changing tides and winds ensuring that conditions alter on a frequent basis, you will need every club in the bag – and probably more than one way to play them!
It was Bernard Darwin, the first literary giant of the game who returned here regularly, who wrote "Aberdovey is the course that my soul loves best of all the courses in the world"; one can understand why.
There's also a large clubhouse with restaurant, bar and lounge to relax in afterwards.

The golf course at Rhos-on-Sea Golf Club is one of the oldest in all of Wales. It was originally founded on Rhyd Farm, on around 120 acres of farmland, all the way back in 1887, and it was designed by the one and only Henry Goldsmith.
“Maesdu” is the name that Llandudno Golf Club has earned among the locals - it means Black Meadow in English - and it dates back just over a century, having been established during the First World War, in 1915.
