We are delighted to be the “Undercover” Feature in this month’s edition of Today’s Golfer magazine.
Four golfers visited Aberdovey and gave their verdicts….

THE UNDERCOVER VERDICT

…1991 Masters champion Ian Woosnam rates Aberdovey as one of his favourite courses. Our four-ball were unanimously in agreement with Woosie and gave Aberdovey, flanked by breathtaking Snowdonia National Park scenery on one side and the Irish Sea and striking dunesland on the other, the resounding thumbs up.

In their view, this was the closest you can possibly get to the perfect golf day, particularly when factoring in the very modest green fee for such a quality links.
