Caernarfon Golf Club is yet another North Wales club with a long history stretching back more than a hundred years - it was established in 1909 with nine holes. Unlike most of the other North Wales clubs, it wasn’t quick to expand past nine holes; in fact, it took until 1981 for it to reach the full complement of 18. Since then, it has only improved further, with the course receiving various improvements with each year that goes by.
As the course is found just outside of the walled town of Caernarfon, it is in a prime coastal location, sitting right on the edge of the world and offering fantastic views out over the Menai Strait and towards the Isle of Anglesey. Even more special are the views of the majestic Caernarfon Castle, which looks down onto the course from its imposing vantage point.
As for the golf, you can expect a great game at Caernarfon. It was recently recognised as such when it held its first major championship in 2009 - the Welsh Boys Championship - which is surely a sign of good things to come. The course is a gently rolling one, full of parkland track, with the standout hole being the 14th, “Y Fenai”.
Caernarfon Golf Club is found just off the A55 expresway on the edge of Caernarfon town.
