Royal St David's Golf Club

3 Internationally renowned Royal St. David’s Golf Club is quite simply one of the finest traditional championship links courses in the world set in breathtaking surroundings in the most beautiful and scenic part of Wales and dominated by the brooding presence of the magnificent Harlech Castle. Nationally and internationally renowned, it has been established for more than 100 years and is steeped in history. Rated amongst the best 50 courses in the British Isles, it has frequently hosted and continues to host world class professional and amateur events. The Club’s welcome matches the excellence of the course. The comfortable clubhouse is furnished to reflect its Edwardian character, and if you need a reminder of the Club’s heritage just spend some time wandering around the lounges and locker rooms with their fine old photos showing the Club, the course and members of yesteryear. Out on the course, which has won environmental honours, it is a golfing naturalist’s paradise with orchids and flowers, larks and birds, gorse and sharp rushes. Harlech itself makes a grand centre for the golfer, with a number of challenging courses close by and there is local accommodation to suit every taste and pocket. For others, there are acres of empty beaches, medieval castles, hill walks, narrow gauge railways, slate mines and any number of other attractions for all the family. Croeso ~ Welcome I am glad to extend the traditional warm Welsh welcome to Royal St. David’s. Since its foundation in 1894 this fine championship links has evolved into today’s challenging layout with its fescue dominated greens. The setting is outstanding with Harlech Castle dominating the inland holes, the mountains of Snowdonia to the north, underfoot the orchids for which the Morfa is noted and, at last, from the 16th tee the view across Tremadog Bay. The efficient and friendly service in the clubhouse, shop and office will complete the enjoyment of your visit.
