With a special edition on the British Open, HK Golfer highlight to its readers the best of the UK's other golfing regions - and they include Aberdovey as one of their 4 picks in Wales.
National Club Golfer wrote an article on their website about golf in West Wales.
With focus on Conwy, Harlech and Aberdovey, they clearly enjoyed visiting all three with some very complimentary comments about our course and the genuinely warm welcome they received here.
"Focus on Wales" double-page spread in National Club Golfer magazine's December issue, where their writers nominated a selection of their favourite courses in the Principality....of which Aberdovey was one.
The description of Aberdovey, beneath a great photo of the 4th hole, is as follows:
"Why we like it: Arguably the most charming links in Wales and beloved of Bernard Darwin, the great golf writer. Stunning all year round - as the awesome image above demonstrates - and a great place to play in the Winter."
Ira Miller, a US golf writer, visited us in August and played the course a couple of times. With a couple of local members caddying for him he clearly enjoyed the rounds and picked up on some of Aberdovey's history.
From reports of the various courses he played during his trip, see the what he wrote about Aberdovey here..........
In this popular magazine, their 'On the Tee' section this month highlights Aberdovey - a very appropriate choice since the Welsh Men's Amateur Championships are taking place as we write and the course is in fantastic condition.
West Midlands magazine 'Playgolf Midlands' has a 2 page review in their July/August edition which, it is fair to say, speaks well of Aberdovey and the delights of playing golf here.
A great double page photograph used by Visit Wales to promote golf in Wales in the Official Programme for the SAAB Wales Open!
A lovely article written by Adam Ruck, the great grandson of one of the founders of Aberdovey way back in the 1880's.
Here Adam explains how and when golf in Wales first took off and was nurtured and promoted through the love that one Bernard Darwin had for the place. That love is echoed now by those who play the course and appreciate its special setting today.
With mentions in the Wall Street Journal and the Sun within 10 days, Aberdovey's appeal is undoubtedly getting wider!
Here Colin Montgomerie's column picks out Aberdovey as being "a gem".
Aberdovey crops up in some of the most unlikely places! Here 'Nomad' of the Wall St Journal applauds natural links and lists Aberdovey as amongst 8 'Off the beaten track' courses worldwide under his heading:
Wild Green Yonder
"A world away from the clubhouses and manicured greens of membership golf, rugged, raw courses embrace the natural landscape and swing us back into the original spirit of the game"
In his article, he describes Aberdovey thus....
A 2009 back-to-links-style restoration has made this picturesque course even more rugged: more natural-looking bunkers, rougher rough and fairways that play less like airport runways than like meandering moors. (The great Welsh player Ian Woosnam grew up playing here.) Aberdovey Railway Station is on the Cambrian Line, operated by Arriva Trains Wales
"James Braid, Creator of a Golfing Legacy".
A recent article in English Club Golfer explores why, with over 200 UK courses to his name (of which Aberdovey is one), James Braid is the country's most prolific golf course designer.
The DAILY TELEGRAPH is a well regarded UK broadsheet newspaper usually with a comprehensive coverage of golf matters.
Their TRAVEL section today boasts a front page picture of our 13th green (taken a few years ago) and, on page 4, a well-written article by one of our Members, Adam Ruck.
