Rhyl Golf Club is one of the older clubs in North Wales, having been founded towards the end of the 19th century, becoming one of the founding members of the Welsh Golf Union in 1895. In 1908, the course moved down the road, expanding to include a full complement of 18 holes.

Since then, Rhyl Golf Club has had a tumultuous history. The local council forced the club to move again, and after this it was reduced back to a nine hole affair. It remains this way to this day, making it somewhat of a rarity in North Wales, though it does still have 18 tees.

As you may have gathered from its location in Rhyl, the course sits right on the edge of the Irish Sea, offering up some fantastic coastal views.

Rhyl Golf Club offers up pure links golf, with fast running greens, sizable bunkers, and generous fairways. One interesting feature is that the 9th hole changes dramatically when played as the 18th, going from a par four measuring 458 yards in length to a rather trickier par five shot, taking up 484 yards. It’s a great day of golf for anyone who enjoys the classic links experience.
