This championship golf course has many things going for it, especially the magnificent scenery highlighted by the vast range of mountains to the north, and historic Harlech Castle casting its shadow from above.

I'm an average golfer (18 handicap). The course is a great test and at present is in fantastic condition. The fairways are super super short and have gone brown, the bunkers are challenging and really well placed, and the greens ran true and were handcut...More

Visited here for a days golf. I’ve been coming here for 20 years and I can safely say the course is now better than it’s ever been. The greens are true and of good pace and the bunkers which historically were an issue have now...More

What a golf course, excellent greens for mid March. Very challenging course even more so when the wind picks up. Very tough finishing holes.

Just back from a visit to North Wales, we played and stayed at Royal St. David's, what a fantastic track. Yes, the rough is fairly heavy in places which should be expected with the recent wet and warm weather but you have to be fairly...More

I have been lucky enough to play all the best courses in Wales and this is by far my favorite. A championship links course, in excellent condition in the shadow of a medieval castle with the mountains of Snowdonia in the distance. It just doesn't...More

We'd had it tough already on this trip. Aberdovey GC had seen ball stocks depleted significantly the day before so I should have been ready for another expensive day given RSD's reputation. Arriving at a very empty RSD I was feeling pretty good considering the...More
