    Formed in 1899, the club is ideally situated equidistant between the holiday resorts of Colwyn Bay and Llandudno. It is quite literally a seaside course with its open aspect being enhanced by inland views of nearby hills and the periphery of Snowdonia beyond.

    In 1934, Simpson & Co. Golf Architects Ltd, of Liphook, were commissioned to advise on the re-design of course features and the re-laying of the greens. In his plans and drawings, Mr. J. Simpson commented in October 1934 that the sites for greens 1, 3, 5, 7, 11 and 13 were just about as fine natural sites as the architects had ever seen and every bit as good as St. Andrews numbers 12, 13, 14, 16 and 17. The course was turned around some years ago and the greens numbered above are now 1, 12, 14, 16, 11 and 4.

    The course lies on ground reputed to be the original bed of the River Conway. Supporting this, in the garden of a house named “Odstone” to the side of the 17th green, is a plaque denoting the spot from which Prince Madoc set sail for America in 1170AD, over 300 years before Colombus. A stream known as the Afon Ganol now traverses the course roughly south to north and through the centre.

    Small lakes in the vicinity of the Afon Ganol attract an interesting and increasing variety of wildlife and also provide a resting place for many a wayward golf ball. The wildlife includes swans, ducks, moorhens, coots and the occasional heron. Reeds in the centre of the lakes provide reasonably safe nesting for some species.

    When we played here I was expecting a links course however I was pleasantly surprised it a mixture of parkland and links, I thought it would be flat but I was wrong enjoyed the game will play again.

    This course was included as part of a golfing package, and having read a little on the internet prior to going I was a little worried it may not be in good condition as the course is up for sale. No need to have worried, it was good.

    Some quirky little holes, particularly the 18th which is surrounded by a moat, should be a flick with a short iron but out of 11 of us we only got 3 on the green.

    Worth a visit if you are in that area.
