Set in a spectacular location on the sweep of Cardigan Bay Borth and Ynyslas Golf Club was established in 1885 and has a strong claim to be the oldest course in Wales. This traditional links course which was redesigned by Harry S Colt in 1945 provides a great test of golf all year round as one would expect of a Golf Union of Wales championship venue.
The golf course is maintained to a very high standard for members, visitors and societies. A round of golf at Borth and Ynyslas is a truly memorable experience and many visitors consider the course unique among the other fine links courses in Wales.
In 1988, Donald Steel, the Golf Correspondent of the Sunday Telegraph and an international golf course architect, visited Borth and Ynyslas Golf Club on behalf of WGU and reported that ' It was nice to make my first visit to Borth and to see a course with a justifiably fine reputation. I found it a course of great charm, very much in the character of the best seaside links with the clubhouse at one end and the holes running out and back across a narrow track of land.
It is a highly enjoyable holiday course with the capacity to challenge the best players on the occasions they play there.'
