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.

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

...about the degree of difficulty? I played it for the very first time a few weeks ago on a warm but breezy day with my teenage daughter; certainly a day described as a one-club wind. She shot a gross 72 off the men's tees (both...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

Great course and very tough. Lots of tight testing tee shots, bunkers were perfect and the greens were 10/10.
