Where2Golf says: 

Aberdovey Golf Club: On the north side of Aberdyfi (Aberdovey) is a pleasant links golf course, bordered by a natural ribbon of dunes and a railway line. Sheep and cattle still graze on the course, kept off the greens by electrified fencing. The excellent greens are relatively flat, like most of the course, and usually protected by well-placed bunkers to left and right.

The 288-yard par-4 16th perhaps epitomises Aberdovey; its not a long hole by any means, but one that requires careful shot-making, lest you pull your drive onto the railway line to the left. Although sea views onto Cardigan Bay are relatively few (you stay behind the dunes most of the time) the simple charms of Aberdovey will unfurl as you relax into this peaceful and natural golf location.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
