On the beautiful Isle of Anglesey you'll find the appropriately named Anglesey Golf Club, a golf club which offers up a seriously fine game. Dating back to 1914, the club has a real heritage, having originally been designed by the double Open Champion, Harold Hilton.
Later on, in the 1920s, another champion golfer had a hand in modifying and improving the course, this time by the name of George Duncan. The golf club certainly has a star-studded history!
The club lost 14 of its holes to the RAF during the Second World War; the airfield is to this day found right next to the course, where jet combat pilots can earn their wings. Thankfully, the forces now have their own course, so Anglesey has its complete collection of eighteen holes once more.
As you may have guessed from its location, Anglesey is a coastal golf club, meaning that you can enjoy some spectacular seaside views as you play. The course itself is a mostly flat affair, with short greens regularly flanked by bunkers and stretches of heath. The signature hole is the par four 18th, where you have to carry a river to the green; classic links stuff.
Anglesey Golf Club is near to the town of Rhosneigr, and a short distance from the station. It is found just off the A4080.
