hmmm what can i say? typical links course, interesting holes out and back. greens werent brilliant when we played in september and we had to carry a small bag of seeded sand around to fill in any divots as fairways were in a sorry state . clubhouse was excellent but at £45 i thought was over the top though i guess typical for links courses everywhere. Oh, nearly forgot to mention the added hazard of the herd of cows on the fairways!!!!

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.

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

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

A superb layout by the sea. First hole is massive par 4 playing into the wind, some fantastic challenging holes and great views over the sea and down the estuary. A must play course, thoroughly enjoyable.

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!!

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!)
