Golf Vacations Wales North
Aberdovey 6445 yards
Golf was first played on the Aberdovey golf links in 1886. Over the years many national championships have been held here and it’s the home of the Welsh Seniors’ Championship.
At 6,445 yards off the white tees, the course is not long by the standard of many newer courses. However, the real defences lie in the wind which is changeable. The course is in a wonderful setting where the hills, with their colours shaded by bracken, gorse or heather reach down to the very edges of the course.
It was Bernard Darwin, the first literary giant of the game who returned here regularly, who wrote “Aberdovey is the course that my soul loves best of all the courses in the world”
