Royal St Davids Play With views towards the peaks of Snowdonia and the looming presence of Harlech Castle, a round at Royal St David’s never lacks for drama. But even divorced of its evocative setting, the club’s rugged links would surely quicken the pulse. Set on land vacated by the sea only a few centuries ago, its towering dunes, undulating fairways and fast, true greens will challenge even the most able players. With unpredictable crosswinds and seven par 4s each weighing in at well over 400 yards, a low score requires power and precision. Thick rough lies in wait for wayward shots, justifying the course’s reputation as the world’s toughest par 69. Stay Five dormy rooms can accommodate up to nine players in comfort. Fitted out with all the mod cons, they provide the perfect course-side base for tackling the challenging links of Royal St David’s. You’re provided with a hearty Welsh breakfast to prepare you for a day on the greens, with lunch and dinner available on request in the welcoming clubhouse. What’s the deal? Royal St David’s offers a range of stay and play packages from £75 per person. For full details, please visit the club website. Enjoy this?
