Aberdovey was designed by the legendary architects of the early 20thC; Colt, Braid & Fowler. The exhilarating start to the round sees you introduced at the earliest opportunity to the rustic joys of links golf; tight lies, rolling fairways, undulating approaches, dry-firm surfaces and fast greens are all here in abundance. Holes blend into the dynamic sand dune morphology, its plants and wildlife with elevated tees and greens offering not only spectacular views but the feeling of being in harmony with the environment.
The course strategy asks for a variety of shots and infinite creativity. The hazards are numerous, deceptive and sometimes hidden. Like any great links course what you see is often not what you get, but it's never penal. No matter their skill, each golfer will find their own 'line of charm' for the course. As with the great Scottish links, quirky features abound throughout the course e.g blind-shots, wooden railway sleepers, the railway itself that skirts the inland portion of the course.
The Signature hole at Aberdovey Golf Club is the 12th hole. This relatively short hole sees the green perched atop the dune system with few bail-out options. Short or left leaves the ball in a difficult position; right is lucky to avoid Out of Bounds. The green is flat so Birdie or Bogey (or worse) await.
