Picturesque, easy walking parkland golf course, 18 holes, a good golfing test for all abilities.
Parc Penrhos is a family owned leisure & holiday complex with accommodation, restaurant & golf club with immaculate 18 hole course & 9 hole academy course situated between Aberystwyth & Aberaeron.
The Golf Club is a Community Project with a 1,000 yard hole par 3 lcourse set in an idyllic location and open to the general public. It is challenging enough for the old hands, but not too daunting for beginners.
Cardigan Golf Club is one of the most startling of the unsung courses of Wales and is to be found high on a hill overlooking the Teifi Estuary at Gwbert, 2 miles from Cardigan.
This nine-hole course sits in a secluded valley and is very picturesque. It's a flat parkland lay-out but the trees, ponds and streams give you plenty to think about as you try and plot your way around the course.
The course was designed by six times open champion Harry Vardon, and altered some years later by James Braid, to produce, essentially, the superb course of 18 challenging holes, almost 5800 yards in length (par 69), that you see today.
