Golf Club, Betws y Coed, Conwy County
Set in the heart of beautiful Snowdonia and commanding
stunning views of the Conwy Valley. A little haven of untempered beauty.
Not for nothing is it known as the Jewel of the Nines. Betws is an immaculate
course during the summer and is a real joy to play on. The pin positions
are a challenge to any golfer, and the course isn't that long either which
lets you enjoy the round without having to be under pressure to reach the
greens in two. Don't forget your wellington boots, or maybe even a boat
during the rainy season, the closeness of the river Conwy has advantages
and dis-advantages! .........
Golf Club, Conwy, Conwy County
Situated on the North Wales coast, with spectacular
views towards Conwy, Llandudno and across the sea to Anglesey, bordered
by the Snowdonia hills, Conwy golf club boasts a superb links course, with
excellent facilities for both members and visitors. This famous links course,
renowned throughout the area as one of the most challenging of its kind
is situated at the mouth of the estuary of the River Conwy. Several of the
holes of the front nine skirt the estuary itself giving views to enjoy over
the bay to Llandudno, Anglesey and beyond. As the course turns to the back
nine many of the holes are played beneath the slendid backdrop of the Conwy
Mountains. When players reach the 15th Tee the course enters into gorse
country for what many have described as one of the most testing finishes
in golf, but once overcome, the hospitality of the club beckons at the clubhouse
situated behind the 18th green were tales of "if only" I had taken
this or that can be debated in the 19th. The Club extends a warm welcome
to all who play at Conwy and truly hope they enjoy this fine links course.
Over the past twelve months we have invested in a fairway irrigation system,
created new bunkers and reconstructed the existing bunkers; additionally
our visitosrs will enjoy our refurbished changing facilities. In the run-up
to our hosting the qualifying round for the Open Championship, (the first
club in Wales to have this honour), there can be no better time to enjoy
the challenge of playing at Conwy Golf Club.
Pitch and Putt, Great Orme, Llandudno, Conwy
This is not a Golf Club but a Municipal "pitch
and putt" course on the Great Orme, Llandudno. I have included the
course on account of the fantastic views available from the Great Orme of
the Conwy river estuary, Conwy Castle, and the Snowdonia range of mountains.
Wales Golf Club, Llandudno, Conwy County
North Wales Golf Course is situated on the
west coast of the Creuddyn Peninsula in North Wales in the sunny holiday
resort of Llandudno with views of Anglesey and the Snowdonia Mountain range.
It is a true links course of Championship standard, hosting the Welsh Team
Championships in 1995. We are sure you will find the course invigorating
and challenging. It is not only a trial of ability but allows the golfer
to relax and enjoy the exhilarating air and the magnificent scenery of the
North Wales coast.
Colwyn Golf Club, Old Colwyn, Conwy County
Old Colwyn Golf Club founded in 1907 and designed
by James Braid, (he seems to have been a very busy man) is a 9 hole meadowland
course and situated within a mile of the A.55 Chester-Holyhead Coastal Road
(See Map). The Course has excellent views of the Welsh hills and the panoramic
view of the Irish Sea and the bay of Colwyn Bay from the 9th/18th makes
one want to linger a little longer before putting out. The signature hole
of Old Colwyn is the Par 3 (7th/16th). With a tee shot of 162 yards the
ball requires to carry all the way over three oak trees to the green, although
there is a "bale out" area for the less able or adventurous golfer.
The clubhouse has changing facilities, a bar and dining area.........
Golf Club, Penmaenmawr, Conwy County
Telephone 01492 623330
With mountains as a back drop and the coastline in front, Penmaenmawr (Pen)
is as challenging in golf as it is stimulating in scenic beauty. When the
view is as magnificent as seen on a balmy summers day, it is worth enduring
some of the slopes on the course. Pen is truly one of the sights of the
golfing world - with the Great Orme Head rising out of the sea by Llandudno
and the distant outline of Anglesey and Puffin Island across the Menai Straits,
perfect for a golf holiday.....
