Conwy, the only championship-length course in North Wales, is a relatively flat links that builds towards an exceptionally challenging finish. It has hosted both the Seniors’ and Ladies’ tours and is always well received. Rugged, uncompromising and natural, you get what you deserve here and when the wind blows it becomes fearsome. Generally you have a feeling of space but on the closing stretch the gorse encroaches and creates a new challenge.
Laid out in the shadow of Conwy mountain, many holes overlook the estuary towards Llandudno and Anglesey. Conwy has hosted the prestigious European Amateur Team Championship in 2009, the S4C Wales Ladies Championship of Europe in 2010 and hosted its third European Senior Tour event in August 2012. The course is regarded as one of the most challenging in the area, requiring players to use every club in the bag to score well.

Douglas Adams’ three paintings from 1893 – ‘Difficult Bunker’, ‘The Putting Green’ and ‘The Drive’ are all based on the links at Conwy. Just be thankful that your scorecard there won’t paints any pictures.
