                          Car: Recommended

                          The Snowdonia national park includes the second highest mountain in Britain as well as miles of uncrowded sandy beaches. There is abundant wildlife, and sporting activities include swimming, surfing, fishing, golf, shooting, climbing and sailing. Rich in history the area includes some of Britain's most scenic medieval castles within an hour's drive. The nearby village of Aberdovey retains a traditional charm, and friendliness, set at the mouth of the Dovey river and looking west across Cardigan Bay towards Ireland. It has several pubs, an award winning hotel-restaurant as well as a range of shops for all needs. Visitors can enjoy public tennis courts, a links golf course, sailing club, fishing expeditions from the jetty and riverboat tours.

                          Golf: Golf Courses?Situated between the coastal dunes of Aberdovey beach and the Cambrian Mountains lies Aberdovey golf course.  This 6,454 yard challenge is a hidden gem of a traditional seaside links course.  Over the years the Club's 18 holes, which are steeped in over 100 years of golfing history, have hosted many championships including more recently the British Ladies' Home Internationals and the regular home of the Welsh Seniors' Championship.

                          The county of Gwynedd boasts 3 of the Top 100 courses in the UK: An hour North from Aberdovey by road finds the excellent Championship links of Royal St David's in Harlech. A further 45 minutes from there brings you to Nefyn & District Golf Club.

                          When Aberdovey and these courses are combined with the three further charming courses at Abersoch, Porthmadog and Pwllheli, there are clearly abundant opportunities for golfers to enjoy differing challenges in a variety of locations.
