Royal St David's Golf Club

5 A finish the equal of any Since its foundation in 1894, the championship links of the Royal St. David’s Golf Club has occupied the dune lands between Harlech Castle and the Irish Sea. Apart from the quality of the holes and the severity of the test, the views of the Snowdonia Mountains, the magnificent castle, and from the 16th tee, the Llyˆn Peninsula across Tremadog Bay, makes Harlech one of the finest locations of any course in the whole of Britain. The par 69 course has been increased to a challenging 6,629 yards from the championship tees following the extension of the practice ground and the reconfiguration of the 17th hole in 2008. The course is noted for a succession of long testing par 4 holes, five par 3 holes and two par 5 holes; a feature of which is the large greens. The last five holes form a loop through the dunes that provide a finish the equal of any. The 10th and 15th holes with the mountains of Snowdonia providing a spectacular backdrop.
