The challenges of Aberdovey’s wild and windswept links owe almost as much to Mother Nature as the course’s designers. Hugging the coastline where the Dyfi Estuary meets the sea, the mountainous Snowdonia National Park to one side and shifting dunes to the other, a round at Aberdovey is an elemental experience. Achieving a low score here requires a steady hand, well-stocked golf bag and the ability to improvise. Legendary sportswriter Bernard Darwin was a big fan, describing Aberdovey as the place ‘his soul loved best of all the courses in the world’.


Accommodation is in Aberdovey’s Dormy Bungalow, which recently received a four-star grading from Visit Wales. Sitting right next to the 18th green and adjacent to the welcoming clubhouse, the bungalow offers four twin-bed en-suite rooms in the perfect setting for a golf getaway.
