Situated high above the shores of Cardigan Bay on the Teifi Estuary, Cardigan Golf Club is a special place to play golf. You will enjoy a memorable and testing round of golf, surrounded by stunning sea views including the distant Preseli Hills, Bardsey Island and the Lleyn Peninsula,
Measuring some 6500 yards from the back tees, the course consists of a mixture of links and parkland. The often breezy conditions call for varied shot-making, each round proving unique and offering a challenge for golfers of all abilities. The undulating greens and surrounding bunkers require concentration on approach and finesse with the putter. A testament to the club’s stature is that it has hosted Golf Union of Wales Championships as well as International matches.
The signature hole at Cardigan is well worth the wait, a challenging, but fair, par three measuring 195 yards from the medal boxes where an elevated tee awaits, with spectacular views across the Teifi Estuary to Poppit Beach. An accurate shot is required as the green is bunkered on both sides, but the putting surface is receptive and the best results are achieved by attacking the hole – though the bale out is to the left, as a shot to the right will probably be lost. When the pin in on the top level a par feels like a birdie.
The Par 5, 18th hole is also a great hole. This par five is a quality links finishing hole. An accurate tee shot is called for as the fairway narrows at the driving distance. The large green beside the clubhouse can be reached in two but there are plenty of problems on either side of the fairway as well as two fairway bunkers some twenty yards short of the target.
Excellent drainage and a relatively mild climate ensures that the course is playable throughout the year off regular tees and greens.
Cardigan Golf Club really is a majestic test of golf set against a backdrop of breathtaking and varied scenery.
