About Royal St David's Golf Club

A former president of Royal St David's put it perfectly: Harlech is a magical place. So it is. Deep in Merlin country, the course is in the shadow of the towering castle built by Edward I in the 13th century to keep the Welsh in check. It is a matter of historic irony that those majestic ramparts now form the backcloth of a golf course that subjugates Englishmen or, indeed, any visitor. Royal St David's like Royal Porthcawl, would be counted in any list of the worlds best courses. When the castle was built, the sea lapped the rocks beneath it but over the centuries retreated to leave the expanse of natural linksland that was never meant to be anything but a great golf course. Only twice do successive holes proceed in the same direction so the wind invariably spreads trouble among the dunes and although it is not long, it has been described by professionals as the worlds toughest par 69. Host to a throng of championships in its time and favored by all manner of men - in 1934, King George V was Patron and the Prince of Wales was Captain - Royal St Davids has rewarded many a long journey with a unique experience

Royal St David's 1/1
Holes: 18
The Par 69 course has been increased to a challenging 6,629 yds from the Championship Tees following the extension of the practice ground and the reconfiguration of the 17th hole in 2008. Royal St.David's Golf Club is known for its long testing par 4 holes and 5 par 3's, which vary in length and direction. A feature is the large size of the greens.

Royal St David's
Castle view links course. The GC St. Davids at Harlech, just a stone‘s throw down below the castle is a true links course. Embedded between the dunes and parallel the railway track - of course. Few bunkers only protect the greens which are maintained above standard but not too fast. The fairways are mostly wide and nearly no dog leg. They are mostly flat and easy, not …

Linksbaan in mijn ogen overgewaardeerd en relatief te duur. Nergens uitzicht op zee. Maar leuk om te spelen, de laatste 4 holes vrij lastig. Geen gezellig clubhuis.

Royal St David's
Der Platz liegt in Harlech direkt unterhalb der dortigen Burg und – wie bei echten Linkscourses üblich – auch direkt an der Bahnstrecke, so dass auch eine Anreise per Zug kein Problem darstellt. Der Parkplatz selber ist vernünftig dimensioniert und auch an einem Sonntag Nachmittag waren genügend freie Parkplätze vorhanden. Vom Parkplatz überquert man dann die Bahnstrecke …
