Beneath the stern gaze of Harlech Castle, Edward Ist's mighty fortress, the Royal St David’s is one of Wales’ premier links courses. It occupies the dune land reclaimed from the sea within the Morfa Harlech Site of Special Scientific Interest. This, together with the mountains of Snowdonia offering a magnificent natural backdrop, makes it difficult to find a finer golf course. With its succession of long par 4s, and five short holes, it’s been widely described by professionals as the ‘hardest par 69 in the world’, providing a demanding test of the game.
It was recently chosen by Ian Woosnam as one of his five best British golf courses. Laid out in 1894, at the end of the first great golfing boom, the founding fathers of the club deliberately named it after St David, Wales’ own patron saint, with the aim of developing a Welsh equivalent of St Andrew’s in Scotland, and St George’s in Sandwich.
Played against the stunning backdrop of the mountains of Snowdonia this championship links course is widely regarded as one of the hardest par 69s in the world.
