Tancred Cummins founded the club 1894 and served it as Captain and Secretary until 1933!
After the course was built, Tancred Cummins named each hole. The land on which the 13th hole as built was purchased from the local parish and named Hades. The church commissioners opposed the name due to its connection with the church and requested it be changed. Mr Cummins refused and instead christened the 18th hole, Paradise.

Golf Course Review
North Wales Golf Club lies opposite Conwy Golf Club in the seaside town of Llandudno, Wales overlooking the Conwy estuary. Known as the Queen of the Welsh Resorts, Llandudno has two beaches. The links are found on the West Shore or Penmorfa Beach granting an ever-changing vista during the round. The course affords views of the Vardre, the Mountains of Eyri Snowdon, Ynys Mon (Island of Anglesey), Puffin Island and the Great Orme.
The club has strong links with Royal Liverpool Golf Club or Hoylake. The week after winning The Amateur Championship at Hoylake, John Ball visited the club with Mr Cummins and advised on the original hole layout. Later, Harold Hilton - another Hoylake member, frequented the club and advise Mr Cummins on the layout. Both John Ball and Harold Hilton would win the Open Championship. Perhaps not by coincidence, the motto of the club is that of Hoylake: 'Far and Sure'.
The back nine is one that seems to excite the majority of golfers who find themselves here. Curiously, the back nine measures just 2884 yards in contrast with the front nine which measures 3426 yards. The outward nine has two Par 5's and only one Par 3. On the inward nine, there is only on Par 5 and three Par 3's - with two back-to-back on 16 & 17.
