Visit for a golf holiday at Caernarfon

Golf has been played at Caernarfon since 1909 and, for over seventy years, members of Caernarfon Golf Club were happy to play on a 9-hole layout. That all changed though in 1981 when the course was doubled in size to its present 18-hole configuration and it has since gone from strength to strength as course improvements every year add to its reputation as an ideal golfing venue on the coast.

It is a gently undulating parkland track with lovely views of Caernarfon Castle, the Menai Straits and the Isle of Anglesey and many golfing societies and holidaymakers return year after year to walk the lush, tree-lined fairways.

The signature hole is the right doglegged 14th, named “Y Fenai,” a 335-yard par four. With the prevailing wind blowing from behind on the tee, big hitters may be tempted to go for the green but the internal out of bounds on the right and course boundary down the left will severely punish any stray drives.

The Royal Town of Caernarfon Golf Club (to give the club their official title) are justifiably proud of hosting the Welsh Boys Championship during their centenary year in 2009 as it’s the first major championship to be held here – a sure sign that their course has come of age in the new millennium.

Middle of summer and you would expect that the tees and greens would be in reasonable conditiion. Not so, the tees were like shagplie carpets and the greens weren't much better. By far the worst was the attitude of some of the golfers. Foul mouthed and abusive. Do not waste youe money playing this course as I hve played municipal courses in better condition.

The course is fairly short with just 2 par 5s and a par of 69. Parkland, with the other main hazard being the wind which usually blows with vigour off the Menai Straits. Greens were in great shape and on the fast side of average. A good walking course with no long distances tee to green and fairly gentle undulations. Locals, pro and bar staff all helpful and friendly. Well worth a visit.
