With such a rugged coastline, it’s no surprise that links golf is the order of the day – try Nefyn, Aberdovey, Porthmadog or the spectacular Royal St Davids and you will certainly not be disappointed.

Discover the hidden gems of North Wales
Much like the outer reaches of Scotland or Ireland, the north of Wales is a golfing region that falls easily into the category of ‘Hidden Gem’, such is the quality of golf on offer in this gloriously unspoilt corner of the Principality. The south might have a number of 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.
The upper west coast is absolutely littered with links courses, each of which hugs the rugged coastline for an authentic links experience. Aberdovey, Royal St David’s and Porthmadog are all exceptional layouts, whilst Nefyn & District is known to have one of the finest stretch of picturesque holes in the entire UK and is often compared to Pebble Beach.
