North Wales

Northern Wales is not the most visited golf destination in Britain, mainly due to its location a 2 hour drive from the nearest airports in Liverpool & Manchester. But with a little bit of time and effort, once you're there you won't regret it! The north of Wales is known for its beautiful countryside, castles, mountains and charming villages with unpronounceable names. There are many wonderful courses in the region with the highlights being Nefyn & District, Royal St Davids and Aberdovey Golf Clubs, although there are many more hidden gems to fill up the itinerary.

Nefyn & District is Wales version of Old Head Golf Links in Ireland, both are build high up on a cliff of a peninsular that juts out into the sea. Both surreal locations with some fine golf to boot. Royal St. Davids is a fine traditional links with undulating fairways, fast greens and all the while the imposing Harlech Castle is keeping an eye on things.

Aberdovey Golf Club is located within the Snowdonia Natural Park at the mouth of the Dovey Estuary, the natural links runs out and back along the railway line and offers a fabulous golfing experience. The club will be for ever linked with legendary golf writer Bernard Darwin (Grandson of Charles Darwin) who spent summers there as a child.

Porthmadog Golf Club has a split personality with the front name being more parkland in style and the back nine having some terrific links golf. Designed by the the prolific golf course architect and 5 time Open championship winner James Braid, Porthmadog is definitely worth a game when in the area. Located nearby is the charming village of Criccieth, centrally located to attack the best of northern Wales.

To round off your trip Bull Bay and Holyhead Golf Clubs on Anglesey are both fine courses. And on the north coast Conwy Caernarvonshire and North Wales Golf Clubs are also lovely courses.
