Conwy has given its name to a river, a mountain, a magnificent castle with a complete ring of medieval town walls and championship links golf course that played a distinctive roll in two World Wars. Golf was being played on this flat spur of land at the mouth of the River Conwy in 1869 and a 12-hole course was built on this stretch of sand hills, ditches, gorse and fine old turf by 1875 but it was another 15 years before the club was officially formed. It became one of the foremost championship venues in Wales but, requisitioned as an army training camp, it was virtually destroyed between 1914-18.

Members restored it to its former glory but in 1943 mysterious things started to happen on the back on the second green – under great secrecy 900 workmen began building sections of the Mulberry Harbour which was launched into the river and shipped south to play its crucial role on D-Day. Once more members brought it back to life and it has played a major role in championship golf ever since, the quality of its challenge matched by a spectacular setting between mountain, river and sea.
