What the club says: Founded in 1911, the course was designed by six times Open champion Harry Vardon. This challenging parkland course is 6119 yards in length, with a par of 70. The fairways and greens are always in excellent condition and are a test for golfers of all abilities. It has recently been voted one of the 100 best hidden jewels in the United Kingdom by Golf Monthly. The course has spectacular views over Cardigan Bay, the Pembrokeshire coast, the Cambrian mountains, the Lleyn peninsula and the majestic beauty of the Snowdonia mountain range.

Disgraceful

Arrived there and walked into the Pro shop that's if you can call it a pro shop. The person being the counter did not know what she was doing and tried charging us extra. The course was shocking the fairways were half cut and the greens were hard and had weeds on them it clearly isn't looked after. The only good thing was the food the cheff was very helpful and made us feel welcome. I would never go back there again unless things changed on the course. - Jun 23 2018

Disappointed
This was my fourth and probably last visit to this course.

I played, with a member, at midday on Bank Holiday Monday. No one in the office/pro shop to answer a telephone call and it was locked up when we got there - a honesty box with a few scorecards was all there was. I should have guessed as much when I saw that all tee times were available on teeofftimes.com.

The greens were not good with weeds growing on several of them and all needing work. Fairways were covered in patches of daisies which meant searching for even the good shots. The course is challenging enough without this.

Even the member was complaining about the course.

As usual the views were spectacular and I was knocking a ball around a course with some friends, but I expect more for my money, and will be taking it elsewhere.

Unloved
Felt a bit unloved in the clubhouse, doesnt seem to have been decorated for years. Course is very up and down, sometimes hard to keep a trolley upright.................................

Up and down
Course is in good condition thought the greens are a bit on the slow side. Bit of a mountain goat course with every hole on one or many slopes, some like a cliff edge.

A real hidden gem!
Played the course on June 12th.
Club is managed by Volunteers who were very welcoming to my group.
There has been a complete change of Greenkeeping staff at the Club over the last 12 months and they are led by a very experienced Course Manager.
The course is in superb condition with the greens the best I have played for a long time.
The course has real character and my golf was only interrupted by the resident skylarks!
Amazing views the equal of anywhere in the World.
Really enjoyed the peaceful location and the superb greens.
Very good value for money with offers available on their efficient online BRS tee booking system.
I understand many groups have been returning to the Club every year for more than 25 years - we intend to be one of them!

Testing, hilly and sloping course which varies depending on wind direction. Amazing views over the town of Aberystwyth and the sea.

Superb unspoilt Harry Vardon championship course with stunning views to rival any in the World.
I understand the course was recently rated by Golf Monthly as one of the best 100 hidden gems in the UK and I would certainly agree with that.
Traditional greens are in excellent condition and obviously expertly maintained.
Challenging and interesting course - you will do well to play to your handicap here!
Great to see a 100 year old traditional Club mainly run by volunteers with the members being very welcoming.
Best beer I have had in Wales lovingly cared for by Alun who I'm told has more than 30 years experience in the licensing trade!
Carole in the professional shop is an absolute star and arranged our food at very short notice.
Winter offer of £50 for a fourball - incredible value for money.
Aberystwyth, with its highly regarded University and famed for its nightlife, is by far the largest Town in mid Wales and has a lot to offer.

Very hilly course, in excellent condition greens and fairways. But the bunkers let it down lots of stones in them! Oh and no bins for rubbish

Set overlooking the beautiful Cardigan Bay, this 18-hole championship golf course is the work of the legendary Harry Vardon.

On arrival, the friendly and welcoming members greet you as you enter the unorthodox and quirky clubhouse.

The opening nine holes are a true test of every aspect of your game. Accuracy is essential during the opening holes, and with small and undulating greens, accurate approach shots are essential to give yourself the best chance of making birdies.

The par-3 8th hole is the signature hole on the front nine. At over 200 yards, this tough par-3 requires a well-struck long iron or hybrid to reach the green. With bunkers waiting to punish wayward shots, hitting the green here is essential.

The back nine holes at Aberystwyth continue to challenge accuracy and course management. With short par-4s and a reachable par-5, there is plenty of birdie opportunities to be had, however deep bunkers and water hazards will punish wayward shots.

The closing holes at Aberystwyth are among the most picturesque in the country. Overlooking the Cardigan Bay, the par-4 17th hole is as scenic as any hole in the country.

A tough par-3 with surrounding bunkers to finish means your card is not safe until you are in the clubhouse, but a well-struck iron shot to the middle of the green will leave you with a relatively straight birdie putt.

Overall, a tough and challenging golf course with views to rival any in the country. However, a lack of practice facilities, an uninspiring pro shop and some scruffy tees are a hindrance on what is otherwise a very good golf course.

my home course, par 70 some cracking holes , i rate this a challenging course, there are some tough par 4 s ,the wind blows of the sea and cn make it more than tricky, and more so when playing the 210 yard par 3 7th into the wind. the 10 th in the summer is a par 5 with your 3rd shot over the lake to the green, the 17th is a short par 4 looking over aberystwyth , gorgoues views but go right and you will be reaching for another ball. great course , hilly but buggys available
