Golf commenced at Aberdovey in 1886, when some members of Formby Golf Club - the Ruck family - recognised the potential of the common for playing golf. Legend states a course was laid out on the natural turf, using flowerpots for holes. This new links grew rapidly and the club was constituted in 1892. The Ruck family and nephew Bernard Darwin (later famous for his writings for The Times and several books on golf) were highly influential in the early days. Major General Sir R.M. Ruck was instrumental in forming the Welsh Golf Union, becoming it's first secretary.
In terms of golf today, the coastal setting with its ever changing tides and winds ensures that conditions alter on a frequent basis. Club selection is therefore all the more important. It's best not to think of Aberdovey as one big challenge but 71 different adventures which you will undoubtedly want to take on again!
A wonderful links course which will take you on a journey - loose yourself in beautiful surroundings at Aberdovey GC.
