Golf as it should be

It’s the special brand of Welsh golf, played on friendly, accessible courses. We have around 20, including three of the UK’s finest – Royal St David’s at Harlech, the classic links at Aberdyfi, and iconic Nefyn, perched on cliffs along the Llŷn Peninsula. Legendary course designer James Braid did some of his best work in North Wales – as you’ll discover when you follow the James Braid Golf Trail, which links 10 of his courses.
