Golf in Borth, Mid Wales Coast
This historic 18 hole championship golf course is just 5 miles from the university town of Aberystwyth in the heart of Cardigan Bay.
A warm welcome and a golfing challenge awaits you all…
Nestling on the estuary of the River Dyfi and the beautiful sweep of Cardigan Bay the stunning scenery may well distract you from the golf... but not for too long.
Playing Golf in Borth
Though not long by today's standards, this 'Grand Old Lady' of Welsh golf provides a stern but fair challenge that can be enjoyed by all standards of golfer.
Famous golf architect Harry Colt made his mark with some subtle design changes to the course around 1945, where rolling humps and hollows, and strategically placed bunkers (not to mention the inevitable Borth Breeze!) ensure that each shot needs to be struck accurately in order to challenge par. The level terrain and easy walking will entice you to play again (perhaps in the afternoon) in order to regain some of those lost shots.
Golf as it should be played the out and back design takes you close to (some may say too close to) Cardigan Bay, the 2nd especially is renowned, a straightaway 455 yard par 4 sandwiched between the road and the Irish Sea, what price for a par here!
With the turn nestling amongst the dunes at Ynyslas, part of the Dyfi Valley Nature Reserve, the views north and east to the Snowdonia national park could cause you to take your mind off the game, this or maybe the Skylarks and Curlews calling or even a Red Kite circling above.
