From A55 take exit 18 and follow direction A546, Conwy / Deganwy. After 2.9 mls (drive thru Deganwy) turn right into Hospital Road. After 100 yards golf entrance is on your right.
Llandudno's Maesdu Golf Club is located just across the railway-line and perched above its neighbour, the North Wales Golf Club. With this slightly higher elevation come panoramic views over the Snowdonia mountains, Conwy Bay, the Great Orme headland and across to Anglesey and Puffin Island. Unlike its neighbour across the tracks, you are not going to be playing a classic seaside links course.
Maesdu has more in character with an open parkland course than a seaside links; short wind-shaped trees and gorse bushes, rather than sand dunes line the fairways. Although set back from the beach, Maesdu's gently sloping terrain presents abundant sea views, especially from the more open back-nine, and the ever-present wind will ensure a thorough examination of your golfing skills.
With generally good quality upkeep, spectacular views (the best of which comes at the elevated 18th tee) and a value-for-money green-fee, don't be surprised to find a full car park at this always popular golf club.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
Must book in advance. Handicap required.
Cash or UK cheque only. Contact club for full details, discounts, packages, etc. [Last updated: 2018].

Golf Son Gual is home to a course frequently rated the No.1 layout on the holiday island of Mallorca. Opening for play in 2007, this Thomas Himmel design combines the openness of a links-style layout with the stylish bunkering and not infrequent water hazards more typically associated with parkland courses.
Son Gual is located just a few kilometres from Palma (Mallorca). Palma's Old City shows clear influences from the city's Arab past.
