Aberdovey Golf Club overview

Golf was formed at Aberdovey in 1886 when the Ruck family moved from Formby in north west England and pinpointed some land that would be ideal for a golf course. Set within the magnificent Snowdonia National Park, the course boasts an excellent position between the Dovey Estuary and the Cambrian Hills. Herbert Fowler, Harry Colt and James Braid have all influenced Aberdovey Golf Club and visitors now will find one of Wales’ most historic and revered links courses.

The clubhouse is modern with a dining room and bar/lounge area as well as a pro-shop. There is even a Dormy House adjacent to the clubhouse if visitors wish to stay onsite.

Aberdovey Golf Course overview

Aberdovey is a classic ‘out and back’ links layout that stretches along the west Wales coastline where Cardigan Bay meets the River Dyfi. With the changing tides of the estuary brings constantly changing wind directions meaning this is a challenging course despite only being 6535-yards from the back tees.

Although quite a flat course, this par-71 offers golfers some excellent views across the bay and towards the postcard town of Aberdovey.

Did You Know?

Legend has it that golf started in Aberdovey when Major General Sir R.M. Ruck planted 9 flowerpots for holes on the natural grassland where the golf course is now situated. The Ruck family were instrumental in forming the golf club at Aberdovey.
