Madryn Castle Holiday Park, located at the heart of Llŷn Peninsula next to Snowdonia National Park, sits in an area of remarkable natural beauty. This stunning landscape is the perfect backdrop to the golf courses in the area, making this part of Wales a popular place among golfers. If you love a round of golf and are considering a golfing getaway, or simply want to try a new and exciting experience, there are lots of iconic courses near to Madryn Castle, part of Pritchard Leisure. Here are a few of the top golf clubs in the area that we think you should check out.
Nefyn Golf Club – This 27-hole layout on the spectacular north coastline of the Llŷn Peninsula is comprised of a challenging 18-hole Championship Course, as well as a 9-hole Point course on a narrow strip of rocky headland that stretches out into the Irish Sea. In addition to the breath-taking scenery, you also have a well-equipped clubhouse to relax and unwind after your day’s golfing at Nefyn Golf Club.
…described by some as “playing golf at the edge of the world”, and when you are battling your way around the rugged headlands at Porthdinllaen, it certainly feels that way – for one of the best golf experiences in Wales, you can’t beat it!
And don’t forget to ‘swing’ by the iconic Tŷ Coch Inn, marooned on the shoreline of the Porthdinllaen headland – only accessible by foot and voted one of the best beach bars in Europe!
Abersoch Golf Club – located on the Cambrian coastline in North Wales, alongside one of the most popular beaches on the Llŷn Peninsula, Abersoch Golf Club has been previously voted Welsh Golf Club of the Year by Your Golfer magazine and is described by visitors as the friendliest golf club in Wales. A mix of traditional links and parkland, this stunning course offers something for players of all abilities. This club also boasts a simulator room, where you can practice out of the elements, enjoy competitions and year-round golf. Once you’re finished at the clubhouse, it is just a short walk into the famous seaside town of Abersoch where you will find plenty of bars and restaurants to enjoy.
Pwllheli Golf Club – one of the finest golf clubs in North Wales, Pwllheli Golf Club offers beautiful views of the south facing coastline of Cardigan Bay, as well as the Snowdonia Mountain range. This unique part links, part parkland course is a treat for any level of player. The first nine holes were designed by Tom Morris in 1900, and extended to an 18-hole course in 1909 by the five times British Open champion, James Braid. This historic golf club has all the facilities you would expect from a top course, including two clubhouse bars where you can relax after your round.
There’s no denying that the rugged environment of this region of Wales has influenced the development of some of the world’s best golf courses. This is not only because of the spectacular views, but also the fact that the contrasts of mountain and sea breezes present challenges to players of all ability levels. Whether you’re a beginner, a mid-level player, or a seasoned pro, you’ll find something to love on each of these golf courses.
