Regarded as one of the most picturesque course in Wales with the magnificent backdrop of Gwrych Castle, Abergele Golf Club remains a firm favourite with both members and those who choose to visit from all over the golfing world.
The delightful 18 hole Parkland Course boast many enviable features. The course was established in its present position in 1968 to the historic grounds of Gwyrch Castle with magnificent coastal views. Abergele Golf Club has maintained its reputation by ensuring that innovative enhancements are made at every opportunity. This is clearly highlighted by the completion of a huge project which say construction of new greens to thew latest USGA standards by course architect David Williams of Golf Design and reconstruction work supervised by G. Shiels & Associates.
The new USPGA greens, means that our members and visitors are able to play on smooth, dry greens for 12 months of the year. The greens design is such that they provide an interesting challenge to all categories of golfer with pin placement ranging from easy to difficult depending on the occasion. Club policy has also given special consideration to ensure more favourable playing conditions for lady golfers.
To provide additional variations and differing degrees of challenge there will be five measured courses for members and visitors to choose from. The green tees will give a much shorter course for either the high handicapper or a person wishing to play a much shorter game.
The greens are well protected by feature bunkers, providing difficult pin positions for major competitions with bail our areas for the less proficient golfer who will have to run the risk of three putting. The newly designed greens require your complete concentration to maintain a reasonable putting average.
Our practice and teaching facilities are second to none with full size practice ground with two practice greens and bunkers, challenging putting green and indoor area for wet weather practice.
