The golf course at Rhos-on-Sea Golf Club is one of the oldest in all of Wales. It was originally founded on Rhyd Farm, on around 120 acres of farmland, all the way back in 1887, and it was designed by the one and only Henry Goldsmith.

It remained relatively the same for a good long time, but recently - in 2004 - it underwent a lot of updating and modernising. The clubhouse was upgraded, the drainage and irrigation systems were completely overhauled, and more than nine thousand trees were planted.

The course as it stands now is a very pleasant location for a spot of golf, offering up a beautiful parkland play style.

The fairways are mostly fairly level, and the course stretches for just over 6000 yards of playing area. The most noteworthy holes would have to be the par threes, of which there are five. Rather unusually, one of these is actually the 18th hole.

When you’ve finished up, make sure to enjoy some of the fine food in the clubhouse.
