Society Tour picked a calm sunny day conditions ideal.
Plenty of run in the dry conditions and the greens were perfect.
Just about managed the long carries from the 15th, 16th and 17th from the Tees Great course planning.

Fantastic welcome and awesome layout

2022 new irrigation being installed and much needed, greens needed water they putted OK but looked burned and patchy all in all maybe next year with new system they will be up there with the best again. I'm told they are pure

A Welsh Legend

This course is one of my favourites and so much so that I play it annually and am even thinking about a distance membership. Overlooked by the imposing Harlech Castle there cannot be many better settings to play golf. On a good day with the sun shining there arent many more enjoyable rounds. On a blustery damp day, it's as stern a test of golf as you will find, as a very tough par 69.

Good challenging Links

Played in high winds and the course got the better of me. Tight fairways, lovely true greens with good pace through the whole course. The front nine wasn’t as memorable as the back nine which has a number of interesting, beautifully constructed classic links holes with a few blind shots thrown in amongst the dunes.

wonderful firm fairways in March

4th time played here now. love this place. Just over 3 hours from the midlands but my goodness the scenery is just to die for!!

Good value food afterwards too

Bit of work going on on 15/16 and sandy greens (hence the £45 Green fee) but all essential prep for a fab summer ahead

It is tough track even without wind with 7 par 4's >400 yards

A little disappointed with the course, quite a lot of scruffy fairways, a few parts were so bad they should have been GUR but weren’t. At nearly £80 for 18 holes and a bacon butty, it’s way over priced. Played Conwy the day before - twice as good and cheaper.

A joy to play this great links

Love this course from start to finish. No weak holes. Fairways are like carpet, greens amazing, bunkers very picturesque with the long grass growing at the top to make extraction more perilous! It was the third time I've played and could not draw my eyes away from the Harlech castle overlooking the course. The mountains in the distance help frame so many holes. Love it. It's just magical. The par 4 15th is our fav with the fairway running at 45 degrees to the tee making decision making interesting. We last played in 2018 in heavy rain so picked August to play in the sunshine......but that never happened ....but loved it all none the less! Paid £85. A pound a shot - worth every penny.
Nice short game practice area and driving range (£5 a bucket from the shop). though artificial turf that wouldn't support a long tee for a driver :-( The only negative all day!

Dormy also available.

Absolutely stunning

You can tell this is a top course from the minute you arrive. Make sure you bring you A game as it isn't very forgiving

Great links golf - lovely setting and lucky to have only a mild breeze. Course must be brutal in strong wind. Perhaps a little rough around the edges in terms of course condition but that really only added to the charm. Back nine stretch of 14-17 fantastic testing golf holes. Finished off with a great bacon butty in the clubhouse.
