The south might have many marquee names like Royal Porthcawl and the Ryder Cup venue of Celtic Manor, but up north it’s all about the traditional, classic links courses that are just waiting to be discovered.
Some of these notable North Wales Golf Club’s are Conwy, Aberdovey, North Wales and Rhuddlan, all of which are a fantastic choice for your next golf tour as each perfectly encapsulates a traditional Welsh links course.
