The county of Gwynedd boasts 3 of the Top 100 courses in the UK. An hour North from Aberdovey by road finds the championship links of Royal St David's in Harlech www.royalstdavids.co.uk. To make a different day of it, leave the car behind and catch a train from outside Aberdovey Golf Club and take in the views and scenery all along the magnificent Cambrian Coast railway line. The train will deposit you a hundred yards or so from Royal St David's.
If you continue up the coastal railway line a few stops and then take a short cab ride, you will find Porthmadog Golf Club: www.porthmadog-golf-club.co.uk
A further 45 minutes by road from there brings you to Nefyn & District Golf Club www.nefyn-golf-club.com perched on cliffsides where holes reach out into a stunning peninsula, and where you see the ocean from every hole.
There are other charming courses at: www.abersochgolf.co.uk, and Pwllheli www.pwllheligolfclub.co.uk and thus abundant opportunities for golfers to enjoy differing challenges in a variety of locations.
