North Wales

The romantic region of North Wales includes the districts of Clwyd, Gwynedd and the island of Anglesey and the area stretches from Wrexham in the east to Anglesey in the west, embracing a number of small seaside towns on its northern boundary. Further inland, more than 800 square miles of breathtaking beauty within Snowdonia’s National Park (including more than 100 lakes and 90 mountain peaks) has to be seen to be believed.

North Wales Counties Golf Association promotes the sport across 45 clubs within the region and it incorporates the Anglesey Golf Union, Caernarvon & District Golf Union, Denbighshire Golfing Union and the Union of Flintshire Golf Clubs.

The four top courses in North Wales are strung out along the coastline, beginning with Conwy, a fine links layout that lies on the Conwy Estuary. It’s a much underrated golf course that hovers just outside the Top 100 rankings for Great Britain & Ireland. A little more than fifty miles to the south, the seaside fairways that comprise the 26-hole layout at Nefyn and District are as unique a set of holes that you will find anywhere.

A one-hour journey away, the championship course at Royal St David’s serves up a strong test on the linksland that lies beneath the imposing presence of Harlech Castle. A short train journey further south from here, you alight onto the platform outside the clubhouse of the charming old course at Aberdovey, one of the most delightful venues in the UK.
