A beautiful course with an incredible surrounding

Aberdyfi Golf Club is absolutely stunning, a tough links course with all the trails and tribulations You would expect. The greens are in great condition and the fairways and rough provide challenging contours punishment. I couldn’t recommend this golf course any higher

Top-notch course

If there was a 4 1/2-star option, this course would warrant it. It's my favorite course we played in Wales, but can't quite compare it to some of the Scottish venues we played a year ago. Still, it's a treat. We played this layout as the second 18 on a 36-hole day. After being poured on in the morning, the skies cleared and we got picture-perfect weather for most of the afternoon. This course allowed for a slight miss, giving you a chance to find your ball if you were a bit wayward. The par-3 12th really stands out, as a straight uphill, 150-yard hole. The good thing about this venue is it makes you think off the tee -- driver for distance or lay back and take trouble out of play. A real treat.

Loved it...

It was quite a haul to get there, with long-winding roads hardly wide enough for one car being considered a two-lane road.

After white-knuckling it behind the wheel for more than an hour from Harlech, Aberdovey was well worth the adventure.

First, it was crazy busy there. Booked solid. Still, pace of play was perfect.

The blend of holes was terrific as was the setting. Some elevation, a couple blind shots, great par 3s...it had a little bit of everything.

Truly enjoyed the afternoon.

One of Wales' finest

Giving this course five stars doesn’t mean I put it on par with some of the other courses I’ve reviewed that receive top billing, but Aberdovey is, without question, one of the crown jewels of Wales.

On the back end of a 36-hole day, this course was just awesome – and made even better by the fact that we played in 70-degree weather, sunshine and modest, swirling winds.

The quality of this track was evident right away, with the short, par-4 second that could have been played with five different clubs off the tee. (I chose 4-iron, which would up in the adjacent fairway). The par-3 third is completely blind, and the sixth, seventh and eighth are definite birdie opportunities (as I showed!), but the course really begins to show off starting at the 12th hole. The 150-yard par 3 is one of the most picturesque on the course, as players are forced to shoot straight up the hill, into a gusty wind, making club selection a total guess. A couple of holes then hug the dunes, leading to the par-4 16th, which is drivable at 280 yards but not recommended. The preferred play is to lay back to 125 yards and wedge it onto a thin, narrow green. It’s a terrific design, and one of the two holes (the par-3 12th being the other) that I’ll remember most.

Play this course if you can.
