Royals St David's Golf Club at Harlech

Teeing off at Harlech Golf Course under the watchful gaze of the castle.

Not many golf courses can claim to be in the shadow of an ancient castle, but that much is true of Royal St David's at Harlech where the bent and fescue fairways are watched over by this historical stone bastion built by Edward I. Royal St David's is a traditional championship links course with a succession of long testing par fours and five short holes which seldom head in the same direction.

Porthmadog Golf Club

The twelth green at Porthmadog Golf Club, Wales

Porthmadog is another favourite course with hotel guests; half links, half parkland and while the front nine holes are are generally away from the sea, as players go around Samson's Bay on the 12th, the bracing frets can turn the fate of many a game. The 14th has been dubbed the "Himalayas" where golfers must keep their faith whilst driving over a huge natural bunker to the fairway hidden from the tee.

Dolgellau Golf Club

Picture of one of the greens at Dolgellau Golf Club in Snowdonia

Set amidst spectacular mountain backdrops Dolgellau Golf Club is considered to be one of the most beautiful courses in Wales. Do not be fooled by its lack of length, this 9 hole course with alternating tees for the second nine provides a true test of golf for all standards of golfer.

The golf course's small and well protected greens will reward a good straight shot and the free-draining land means suberb playing conditions can be maintained even in wet weather ensuring year round play. The course is overlooked by Cader Idris, one of the highest mountains in Wales and the top six holes provide stunning views of the Mawdaach estuary and beyond. A really idyllic setting for a relaxing game or two.
