Aberdovey is proud to boast a championship links golf course which is consistently rated in the Top 100 Golf Courses in the UK & Ireland.

Founded in 1892, three of the legendary golf architects of the early 20th century, Harry Colt, James Braid and Herbert Fowler, have all had a hand in shaping Aberdovey as it stands today – a Traditional, out and back links course, set in a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). Tight lies, undulating approaches, firm surfaces and fast greens are all found at Aberdovey. At 6,535 yards, the course is not long by the standard of many newer courses. However, the real defences lie in the ever-changing winds which ensure that conditions are never the same for long, creating a test that often requires the player to use every club in the bag.

Aberdovey Golf Club has played host to many national and international competitions in its time. The Welsh Seniors’ Championship has made Aberdovey its usual home and the Welsh Hickory Championships are also held here annually. It is testament to the fact that Aberdovey truly is a fine test of links golf. The Club is well known for its friendliness and were voted winners of the “Best Golf Club” award at the 2019 Welsh Hospitality Awards.

It was Bernard Darwin, former Walker Cup player and the first literary giant of the game who returned regularly, writing “Aberdovey is the course that my soul loves best of all the courses in the world” – play Aberdovey yourself and we’re sure you’ll see why.
