There are always small tweaks going on at Aberdovey and in the last year they have redesigned approaches to the 2nd green as well as extended tees on the 6th and 12th holes. They have also had a full new set of blue, short course tees introduced and properly measured.

Aberdovey’s progressive attitude was rewarded when they were chosen to host the 2011 Welsh Amateur – and have been selected again in 2017. They will also host the Ladies’ Home Internationals in 2014. In addition, this historic links – a favourite of the great golf writer Bernard Darwin – won the Golf Environment Awards in Wales in both 2009 and 2010 and were Highly Commended last year.
