Golf Course Review

Conwy Golf Club is one of Wales' best links and host to the 2021 Curtis Cup. The course lies on the mouth of the River Conwy and has views of Conwy Mountain, Conwy Estuary and the Great Orme.

The nephew of Old Tom Morris, Jack Morris, laid out 12 holes at the behest of Hoylake members in 1875. Jack later returned to extend the course to 18 holes in 1895.

In the mid-1970s, Frank Pennink built new greens on the 4th, 6th, and 8th. Tees were also added on the 5th, 7th, and 9th. In 1983, Brian Hugget and Neil Coles created the 13th and 17th holes.

The underrated championship links one of the finest golf courses in Wales. One explanation may be that because of its location in north Wales, it is difficult to get to. However, the club is within easy reach of The Wirral, Liverpool, and Chester, less than an hour away! And once you're here, don't rush away! North Wales Golf Club opposite is worth a go too!
