Abergele Golf Club is a golf club located in Abergele, Conwy, Clwyd, Wales. The 18-hole course was formed in 1910 and established itself at its present location in 1968 near Gwrych Castle and is a member of the Community amateur sports club. It was redesigned between 2002 and 2003 to meet United States Golf Association standards allowing its members and visitors to play on the course all-year round. Abergele Golf Club is regarded by many golf publications to be "one of the most picturesque courses in Wales". Becky Brewerton, a member of the Ladies European Tour, has played on the course, and Abergele Golf Club has held several regional and national golf tournaments.HistoryAbergele Golf Club was formed in 1910 and the site's pavilion was opened two years later near Gwrych Castle. Six years later the owners of the land, Dundonald Estates, granted permission for the course to operate on Sundays. The club encountered financial difficulties in 1919 when it guarantors did not pay subscriptions and were required to play 20 shillings each year. Additionally the course's committee members toured Abergele to raise the necessary capital. Tennis courts were prepared in 1922 and remained at the site until hard courts were built in nearby Clwyd Avenue. Beginning in 1935 the first and third Thursdays of each month became known as "Ladies Day".Membership declined following the outbreak of the Second World War, and in 1942, the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food ordered about twenty acres of the land be ploughed up to grow crops and grain as part of the "Dig for Victory" campaign. After the Second World War ended the club expanded when a billiard room, Gentlemen's Locker Room and Professional Shop were built. Abergele Golf Club board members formed into a limited company in March 1967 and purchased more than ninety acres of park land in Gwyrch Park from Glyn Parry and John Lloyd Jones. A new clubhouse was opened in 1968 by the Earl of Dundonald and the new course was opened on 3 May 1969.

  • Only been on a social basis. Staff are lovely and the outside balcony has the most wonderful view. Would recommend for private functions
  • Beautiful well kept golf course. Club house was lovely and staff and members where very welcoming.
  • club facilities were decent enough the course I think is quite expensive for what is a fairly repetitive lay out.greens were very slow not in fantastic condition obviously suffering from the current weather.
