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.

Not a great challenge in calm conditions

This is a pleasant golf club, the staff are friendly and the course is well laid out but not a great challenge in dry mild conditions but its a pleasant walk.

Absolute beauty

Great positive start walking into the pro shop, lads super friendly and welcoming. Course was in great condition, new to links and found the fringes a bit weird as played the run up to find soft fronts pitch it on and rock hard bounces. I'm guessing a few visits you gain the knowledge. greens superb.

Should have driven the 16th, finished with 3 bogeys last being 100yrds out :-( back to finish strong next time.

Tough day in the wind

A great day, course was in good nick and lots of fun. Worth being aware there are lots of little water hazards on most holes which are often hidden.

Fantastic Course

Wind was really breezing for the first 5/6 holes, then died down. The greens were amazing for this time of the year and Links course layout was brilliant and challenging and the scenario was picture perfect. Very friendly club and would recommend.

Fabulous experience, stay in the dormy!

We played Royal St Davids then travelled to Aberdovey to stay in dormy before play the next day. Really nice club house with great local ale and a balcony overlooking the 18th green. Dormy is modern with nice ensuite (my room #1 was literally next to the 18th green). Breakfast in the club house is the best!

Course is fab. Proper links, wonderful sound of the sea just over the dunes. Perfect for the links purist with lots of undulations (2nd hole especially!). ON back nine there are so many ditches to navigate - reminiscent of Saunton East/West in North Devon (certainly not intimating but demanding of your attention!). Fabulous course,

Paid £127 for green fee and dormy. what a steal! (Even managed a beach walk before our round and the beach is fabulous!!)

Nice short game practice area and practice putting green.

PS My playing partner played off 23 handicap and shot 46 points. So if you take your A game.......

Links Golf at its best

We played the course late August, it was still recovering from last years drought. They sensibly allowed placement on the fairways. The rough was brutal as you would expect in links golf. Some fantastic holes like the blind par 3 hopefully with a bit of rain the course will return to its best as some greens were not in great shape. The course on the whole is excellent and a real challenge for all ranges of golfers.

Great in and out links

Loved staying in the dormy right on the 18th green. Really put me in the mood!

Some exceptional holes on outward 9. The par 3 3rd is blind and great fun!
The day we played in October was rare as the wind blew in the opposite direction to normal. Hence we made mince meat of the outbound but struggled so much on back! So beware which way it blows when you play!
Some really unique holes like the par 3 twelth with wonderful views of the bay from the green. The dog leg left 17th by the railway line is a lovely hole ( beware the train drivers toot their horns no doubt to warm you! ( my playing partner put 3 tee shots onto the line! So can see why!!)

The club house is beautiful too. The barman was incredible. He knows every Newcastle United FC result including scorers going back over the last 20 years. Test him. He will even wager free drinks if he gets it wrong!!
Great fun

Excellent dormy rooms. Very modern. Full en-suite. And breakfast is top notch

Recommend doing what some do. Play aberdovey on day 1. Then take train to Harlech to play Roysl st Davids. Then return to aberdovey dormy before playing again on day 3 before returning home

But I wouldn't recommend what some members do who play front nine then skip the first half of the back nine! Which seems crazy to me. I don't think there is a weak hole on this course!!
