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.

Booked online to play this course this week. When we arrived we were told the fairways were “out of play” and we would have to drop in the semi-rough. 🤔 Needless to say we asked for a refund and went elsewhere. No mention of this...More

I have long wanted to play Royal St David’s and I was not disappointed. The clubhouse is welcoming, comfortable and has some tremendous history on the trophy boards. The pro was welcoming and the range facilities were ideal to get you warmed up. The first...More

Took a group of 16 lads to Porthmadog and Royal St Davids this weekend. We stayed at the Estuary Lodge up the road. Brilliant tour. RSD is a seriously good golf course, a real test and the back 5 holes are quite something. Had lunch...More

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

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

I played RSD for the fist time this week whilst being buffeted by the tail of hurricane Ophelia. A Winter Warmer green fee of £35 included a cooked breakfast (tea extra). The practice facilities are excellent with a full length range (30 balls for £3),...More

I had not played the course in 20 years however on returning to Wales it was a must play for me. On a wet, blustery day we enjoyed the round although found the greens not to be in the best of shape and the course...More

Ok....very good but not 'excellent'? Well, the course is 'very good' and I agree with an earlier reviewer, it's perfectly possible to score well on this course even first time out. It is fair, but also sufficiently challenging without being unreasonably difficult. The only real...More
