Conwy Golf Club
If you are an avid golfer, then this course is a must!
It is thought that Conwy Golf Club may have been the first place in Wales where golf has been played after three Scotsmen set out a rough course on the Conwy Morfa in 1869. However it was a group from The Royal Liverpool Club in Hoylake who realised the potential of the course and who in 1875 had a professionally designed a course lay out, consisting of 12 holes.
In 1895 the course was extended to 18 holes and within four years the club staged it’s first Welsh National Championship which was won by F. Woodhead, a club member. Over the years, the course has seen many changes and is a typical links course providing a stern test of golf, particularly over the last five holes where an abundance of gorse adds to the challenge. Can you make or break a round?
