What the club says: At 6,535 yards off the white tees, the course is not long by the standard of many newer courses. However, the real defences lie in the wind which is often a gentle zephyr but can be a stiff blow. For example, if playing 36 holes, the 193 yard par 3 5th hole could require a full hit with a driver in the morning and an 8 iron in the afternoon. Whatever the wind, it cannot spoil your enjoyment of the wonderful setting where the hills reach down to the very edges of the course. It was Bernard Darwin, the first literary giant of the game who returned here regularly, who wrote "Aberdovey is the course that my soul loves best of all the courses in the world"; one can understand why.

Now we are talking!!a classic Welsh seaside links with nine out and nine in.the signature hole is a par 3 with a raised green set in the sand dunes where depending on the weather conditions you can use any club in your bag to get there.A must play if you are in North Wales - Sep 2 2012

Visited for the first time in March. What a great set up. Accommodation on site. Practice facilities right outside my room along with the course. Beach is around 100 yards from the 1st tee. Amazing views and beach as far as the eye can see when the tide is out. Course was in really good condition but told that the rough was short and it was easy to find any wayward balls. When it grows it's treacherous! Everyone was extremely friendly and breakfasts great. Pro shop fab too. Planning my next trip.
absolutely great. difficult wind on back 9.

Tough into the wind, then a relief to play down wind on the back nine!
Very welcoming and helpful staff in the pro-shop, useful practice facilities to warm up before the round.

(Round played: Apr 2016 - Score: 78 Handicap: 6.8)
This is an excellent links course, up there with the best of them in my view. The course was in really good condition and I was lucky to get a relatively wind free day, I can imagine this to be brutal when the wind gets up. Classic links, but definitely in the premier division
