Royal St David is pure links golf at high quality. Prior to playing stroll up the hill and tour Harlech Castle and get the low down on the land RSD sits on. Play the course. Eat dinner at the clubhouse as they do a grand job and the walk away from the club with the lite Castle is quite special. They say par 69 but candidly there are a couple 4’s that should be 5’s. A very strong course which we were fortunate to play on a Member Match day. It was in great shape. It presents pretty much what you expect. Great views of the castle all day. Strong golf holes from start to finish. The 3’s are quite difficult. One playing 216 into the prevailing wind. It is not often you’ll play a course off standard tees and play off SSS at 4 shots over par. RSD is a must play. Exceptionally welcoming club also.
