Porthmadog Golf Club
At Porthmadog Golf Club, you get the best of both worlds as the front nine is parkland-style golf but the back nine is a fantastic links-style set of nine holes. The course is situated in Morfa Bychan, just three miles from the lovely harbour town of Porthmadog.
The course was established by James Braid in 1905 and since then it has become a well-loved and popular course for golfers of all abilities. If both sets of nine holes played like the front nine then you would have a very enjoyable and decent round of golf, but the front nine holes combined with the breathtaking scenery and unique layout of the second set of nine holes, you have a very special and memorable course indeed. From the front nine holes, you can enjoy breathtaking views of the Cardigan Bay coastline and the Snowdonia mountain range and from the back nine holes, you have equally impressive landscape to enjoy.
This is a brilliant and exciting golf course that will prove testing to golfers of all abilities and works as the perfect accompaniment to a golf break to Wales and specifically if you are looking to stay in the Royal Sportsman which is a great hotel and base for an excellent golf escape.

Porthmadog Golf Club boasts everything that you need in order to have an enjoyable golfing experience. All of the staff from the club are all friendly and cannot do enough to make sure that you have an excellent golfing day here. After you have enjoyed a challenging and scenic round on the course, make sure to take some time to relax in the clubhouse and enjoy a few drinks and a delicious meal.
You are eased into the round with three par-5s before you reach the testing 4th hole which is an difficult par-4 and one that you may struggle to make par on! The final hole, the 9th, of the parkland holes is a lovely down-hill par-3 which boasts the clubhouse as its background.
After you’ve crossed the road, you begin the spectacular back nine holes. As you stand at the 10th tee, make sure that you are looking for the markers as if you don’t follow them then you may end up in a sticky situation. At the 13th tee you can enjoy beautiful views across to the castles of Harlech and Criccieth, but make sure that you focus on the dune as during the 14th hole, you must drive between these two huge mounds.
This is a very special course and one that is well-worth a visit to due to its stunning scenery and those fantastic back nine holes.
