Found on the coast of North Wales, within the grounds of Gwrych Castle, is the lovely Abergele Golf Club. You will find the course just a little way west of the town from which it takes its name, so you should make sure to pay a visit to the club after you’ve enjoyed the many pleasures of Abergele itself.
The course has changed dramatically since its original inception in 1910, with Fred Hawtree completely redesigning it towards the end of the ‘60s. The course is mostly faithful to this interpretation, but after the new millennium dawned, David Williams rebuilt all the greens so that the club would meet USGA specs.
Most of the site is fairly flat, meaning you can walk around the course without having to stop and catch your breath. The fairways are lined with trees and this, combined with the views out over the sea, makes for a lovely backdrop to your game.
The most testing hole you’ll find here is the eighteenth, which is a signature downhill tee followed by a tight fairway with a bit of a slope. Then you’ve got a challenging approach ahead of you. Best of luck meeting par!
Abergele Golf Club can be found by leaving the A55 at Junction 23 and following the A547 for Abergele.

Wonderfully located on the dramatic and beautiful Conwy Bay, the Conwy Golf Club provides a majestic backdrop to a game of eighteen holes. The course is a challenging one, as you will be battling the strong sea winds throughout the nearly 7000 yards that the links stretch over.
Conwy Castle is easily the most spectacular of all the castles in North Wales (and cost the most to build, too!). The castle was built for Edward I by Master James of St George, and is one of the most impressive surviving medieval fortifications in Britain.
