The golf course that you will find at Bangor St Deiniol Golf Club is a fantastic example of North Wales’ fine golf offering. Bangor St Deiniol was designed by the great James Braid, and as such it will provide a decent amount of challenge to golfers of all skill levels.
The course itself is made up of a mix of parkland and heathland and has unparalleled views over the craggy peaks of the nearby Snowdonia National Park, as well as those that look out over the sea.
The par for the course is the same as its given Standard Scratch Score - 68 - meaning that you should never feel as though Bangor St Deiniol is unfairly difficult, though you should rest assured that it will provide enough of a challenge if you’re hoping to keep that scorecard looking tidy.
It is not a particularly lengthy course, measuring in at about 5650 yards over 18 holes. Once you have finished your game and taken in enough of the wonderful views, you should make sure to unwind with some good food and a pint in the welcoming clubhouse.
Close to Bangor town centre, the club is not too difficult to find off the A5 and the main Bangor high street.
