Abersoch is a lovely place to spend a bit of time in, sitting on the beautiful coastline of the Llyn Peninsula, on the westerly edge of North Wales. Once you have had your fill of long, coastal walks, soaking up the sun, and trying your hand at wind surfing, you should consider paying the Golf Club a visit.

It’s a great little course with a long history, having been established as a nine hole affair back in 1908, designed by the one and only Harry Vardon. Of course, these days you’ll find the full set of eighteen holes here, with the final nine having been put in place by Martin Hawtree in the ‘90s.

There are two styles of golf here; most of the holes are classic links action, fast-running holes that will get the adrenaline going. The rest are more of a parkland game, giving you a little time to catch your breath and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

The best hole here would have to be the 11th one, known to the locals as Tan y Bwlch. This hole measures 440 yards in length and will be remembered for years to come as perfect links golf.

This walk makes up a total distance of around 8 miles, and apart from the occasional trial of walking over soft sand, is not particularly challenging at all. There is a bit of a climb, but nothing that should give you any cause for concern.

Clays Golf Club - found on the Bryn Estate Road in Wrexham - offers up a perfect level of challenge for novice and veteran golfers alike. This is because it offers both a 9 hole and an 18 hole game; the former of these is ideal for relative newcomers to the golf scene, while the full complement of 18 is certainly rather more challenging.
