Prestatyn Golf Club is a fine example of North Wales golfing and has been as such for more than a century now, having been founded back in 1905. It has, of course, changed a fair amount over the decades, including losing nine of the original fairways during a large-scale development project in 1921, but has, for the most part, been operating with the full complement of eighteen holes for nearly all of its 110-year history.

The golf club covers an area of land measuring just over 150 acres, most of which is “morfa”, a type of Welsh sea marsh. As you might have guessed from its location at Prestatyn, the course is a coastal one, sitting right on the edges of the Irish Sea, backed by the rail line.

There are plenty of opportunities to hit your ball into the drink here, especially when you factor in the Prestatyn Gutter; a canal that runs right through the links, which is just begging to ruin your game.

The course offers a good test for golfers of all skill levels, especially if the wind starts to pick up - then it’s a real challenge!
