“Links golf on Wales' oldest golf course”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2013

Borth and Ynyslas Golf course is located on the seafront at Borth, a small seaside resort about five miles north of Aberystwyth.
The course is just under 6000 yards off yellow and stages championship events throughout the season. Most of the fairways are narrow with the sea or sand dunes as out of bounds. A road also comes into play on about a third of the holes and due consideration must be given to any traffic. As with all links courses the ease of playing depends on the wind. Given that next stop west is Ireland golfers can be forgiven for the odd errant drive!

Visitors are very welcome and tee times can be booked in advance with the golf pro on 01970 871557. Visitors may also play at any time if the first tee is clear and a green fee has been paid. Green fees vary but are very reasonable for the quality of golf. Buggies and clubs can also be hired.

The modern clubhouse opens at 11am and provides an excellent range of snacks and drinks. The Pro Shop opens at 9am and is well-stocked. The resident golf pro, John Lewis, is also available for lessons.

The course could benefit from an on-site driving range, although there is a small six hole course at £5 a round suitable for inexperienced golfers or a pre-round warmup.
