Aberdovey Golf Club, Aberdovey, Gwynedd.
Golf was first played at Aberdovey in 1886 and the course has been developed into one of the finest courses in Wales. The club is situated at the mouth of the beautiful Dovey Estuary and nestles between the Cambrian Mountains and the coastal dunes of Aberdovey Beach.

Abersoch Golf Course, Abersoch, Gwynedd

Criccieth Golf Club Criccieth, Gwynedd
Criccieth Golf Club was founded in 1905, it is situated approximately one mile inland from the centre of Criccieth. It is a small extremely friendly and somewhat unique club steeped in history.

The 18 hole, par 68 golf course is an undulating course on high ground, with generous fairways and having natural hazards, leading to greens of varied character. It is an interesting course which offers a challenge to most golfers, but is also more relaxing for family holiday golf. There are magnificent views from all over the course, but the 16th tee is special, as an almost 360 degree panoramic view embraces the Llyn Peninsula, Cardigan Bay, Cambrian Mountain Range and the summit of Snowdon. The spectacular views alone are worth half a green fee..........

Dolgellau Golf Club Dolgellau, Gwynedd

Our par 66, 9 hole course starts with three well designed holes in an atmosphere of peaceful tranquillity. It then offers six more against a background of spectacular, panoramic views of Cader Idris and the Mawddach estuary. It is hilly but somehow doesn't feel like it. The serene beauty and grandeur of the varied landscape in this part of Mid-Wales is breathtaking.............
