Where2Golf says: 

Porthmadog Golf Club: By reputation this is another in an excellent collection of scenic links golf courses in North Wales. A fine mix of parkland holes on much of the front-nine, and a back-nine that is laid out across undulating sand dunes, and which provides full-blown links golf beside the sea.

You'll enjoy many stunning views out onto Tremadog Bay and inland to rugged hills behind the course, especially from the back-nine. Among many excellent holes is the long par-3 11th, which is rated stroke index 5 but often plays 1. This classic links par-3 plays at nearly 200 yds off the men's front tees, with plenty of gorse in front of you, out of bounds on the left and the sea behind.

Did you know?

Porthmadog and Borth-y-Gest Golf Club, as it was originally called, was opened in the early 1900's, with the course in play by 1905. In the early days members were expected to pay compensation for any grazing animals killed or injured by them. Numerous changes and modifications have been carried out since then, including the removal of any grazing animals from the course - be they dead or alive ! | A magical place to stay in this area is at Portmeirion, either in the Portmeirion village, the hotel, or at the recently refurbished Castle Deudraeth, just before the village (see Where2Stay section below).

The American Express formerly known as the Desert Classic, and for many years played as the Bob Hope Desert Classic, will once again be decided on the Pete Dye designed Stadium course at PGA West (Jan 16-19).
The Players Championship:  for the 39th time, TPC Sawgrass, another iconic Pete Dye design, will host The Players Championship for one of the richest first prizes in world golf (March 12-15).
Who's Who: 
Pete Dye:  one of the greatest golf course architects of this or any generation passes away aged 94. His contribution to golf course design, and the legacy he leaves is immense.
Jack Nicklaus:  like Pete Dye a native of Ohio, actually started his golf course design career working together with Dye. In 1967 Dye asked Nicklaus to input to his design for The Golf Club in Columbus, Ohio. Two years later they worked together on the revered Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina.
