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.



Most Helpful Review

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

Great set up
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.

played the day after storm Doris in February - course was in superb condition, dry & greens were receptive. managed to squeeze in 36 holes with the aid of a buggy in the afternoon. we stayed overnight in the dorm (which are all brand new and of better standard than some hotels I've stayed in!!) and had a few drinks in the clubhouse - everyone was very friendly and we felt looked after. Would happily play here again, the views are great and it's a very enjoyable way to spend a few hours (when the wind isn't howling!)

Excellent all round experience. Stayed in dormy bungalow night before round - were late arriving but staff on hand to help check us in. Room was great. Breakfast the next morning was very good - freshly cooked. Pro was very helpful and moved our tee time earlier with no problem. Golf course was in great condition - challenging and no hole the same - fast and smooth greens. Can't recommend the course and club highly enough!

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.

Traditional Links course in fantastic condition, wide inviting fairways draw you in then catch you out with brutal rough and fantastic bunkering, devilish bunkers, I love the way they are set up grasses and all. Quick greens and two fantastic par 3s make for a quintessential seaside links course. Both Pro shop and clubhouse staff were welcoming and made for a great trip up from the south central coast.

a WINDY DAY BUT A PLEASANT MATCH and the greens were in good condition as were the fairways. The bunkers still have silly grasses on their tops and I had one unplayable shot stuck under their roots. The Club house and facilities were very good and staff friendly and helpful in all areas

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

Aberdovey is a favourite after one visit . Nestled between the mountains and the sea.. You cross a railway line to access the course . The pro shop is well stocked with friendly staff. The clubhouse bar/restaurant is on the first floor with views of the course. It is very well manicured particularly for a links course. Well set out not a bad hole in sight. Good wholesome food and friendly staff
