What the club says: Borth and Ynyslas Golf Club nestles on the estuary of the Dovey River and the beautiful sweep of Cardigan Bay. The stunning scenery also includes views north and east to the Snowdonia National Park. Though not long by today's standards, this 'Grand Old Lady' of Welsh golf provides a stern but fair challenge that can be enjoyed by all standards of golfer.

A great links course

This is possibly the best links course in the area with very good greens, fairways and lovely views. A good challenge in the wind

Tough in Strong Wind

First time visit to this links course and unfortunately there was a near gale force wind blowing.

Great welcome from members and the Pro Staff.

Course is well laid out and picturesque.

The bar was kept open for us to have a drink at the end of our round, a very nice gesture and very welcome.

Like Arnie, I'll be back, hopefully with better weather!

Step Back in Time

Like many who play here it was following a trip to the wonderful Aberdovey the day before. Played in drizzle and a breeze. First impression on driving along the road which splits the course was "let's go somewhere else." Glad we didn't because the impression from the road is very misleading. It's not a great golf course but it is interesting, particularly once you get through the first 4 holes and overcome your fears of hitting the passing traffic on the busy road and begin to play the more interesting holes in the dunes. Holes 5 to 12 are most enjoyable and all offer a different challenge. The others are on the flat area either side of the through road. The course condition was not great - the heat wave has taken its toll. The tees were very poor with little or no grass; fairways hard and parched and the greens woolly and slow, but they ran true. Didn't check out the catering but the pro shop was like stepping back 20 years. Some gear on sale in there would certainly pass as vintage! At £20 per head with the 2-for-1 vouchers it represented fair value but wouldn't pay £40 (standard visitor fee) to play here. Glad we stayed to play it and I would encourage anyone thinking about playing here to do so. We enjoyed the challenge but won't be returning.

Great little links course. Traditional 9 out, 9 back format. A good test of golf with some tricky drives..particularly the 2nd SI 1 hole. I played here as I was in the area and wasn't disappointed. A lot of rain had fallen and it was wet in places but still played very well. Just a shame I missed a 5 footer for birdie on the 18th.

This is a very good golf course with numerous different challenges - the highlights being the holes in the sand dunes. Played it end of December and greens were running very true. Its a shame this club does not seen to be that well supported and seems to be struggling a bit financially, i.e. no steward or food available - but having said that we came to golf and very good golf was delivered.

Only played once but will play again. Staff very helpful and food was good. Long holes and watch out for the wind on the back 9 could get you in some trouble.

Cracking traditional links course with many testing holes, and numerous nerve-racking drives. Greens were fast and true, and overall condition of course was excellent for the time of year. No bar/catering which was disappointing but did not detract from a great morning's holf. Will definitely be back.

Not a pretty course but a challenging one .Second hole is wedged between a main road and sea wall-nervous drive. One of the greens had partly falle on to the beach and work was being done tore align teebox and green. Timewarp pro shop . Pleasant clubhouse and good food.
