The Rhos-on-Sea course is one if the oldest in Wales, constructed on 120 acres of what was previously Rhyd Farm in 1887, and its routing was designed by Henry Goldsmith. Two years after work began on the course, it was ready for play, with Rhos-on-Sea Golf Club members using Rhyd Farm House as a clubhouse.

Tom Simpson was commissioned to redesign the course in 1934 and today's layout is largely the one drawn up by the master architect.

Fast-forward more than 80 years to the 21st century and the modern day course underwent a raft of changes back in 2004 when some local businessmen acquired the golf club. Robin Jones and his sons upgraded the clubhouse, installed new drainage and irrigation systems and for some unknown reason planted more than 9,000 trees around the property.

Rhos-on-Sea is a very pleasant parkland course, extending now to just over 6,000 yards with fine views over Penrhyn Bay. Fairways are laid out on largely level terrain with the five par three holes the most noteworthy on the scorecard – two of these are played back-to-back at the end of the front nine and the last par three is played, unusually, at the final hole.
