Since its foundation in 1894, the championship links of the Royal St. David's Golf Club has occupied the dune land between Harlech Castle and the sea. Apart from the quality of the holes and severity of the test, the views of the Snowdon Mountains, the magnificent Castle and, at last, from the 16th tee, the Lleyn peninsular across Tremadog Bay, make Harlech one of the finest situations of any course in Britain. Much of the course is a site of special scientific interest and the profusion and variety of wild orchids in the rough in early summer are a joy, even if one's play falls short of one's hopes.

The course itself, measuring 6495 yards from the championship tees, is noted for a succession of long testing par four holes and five short holes, which vary in length and direction; a feature is the large size of the greens. The last five holes form a loop through the dunes that provide a finish the equal of any. It has been described by a professional player, as the toughest par 69 (SSS 72) that he knows.

Our Professional,  has a well stocked shop to cater for all your golfing needs including trolley and buggy hire. Our steward and caterer can provide whatever refreshment suits the weather and time of day.

Harlech itself makes a grand centre for the golfer, with charming links at Aberdovey an hour away by one of the most beautiful train rides in the land. There is local accommodation to suit every taste and pocket. For others, there are acres of empty beaches, walking, narrow gauge railways, slate mines and any number of other attractions for all the family.
