Links Golf Vacations - Castle Hotel, Conwy, North Wales.

The old coaching inn, stands on the site of a Cistercian abbey. The Hotel has had a fascinating past and has made an important contribution to Conwy's history, playing host to many famous people, such as Telford, Stephenson, Wordsworth and the Queen of Romania who lunched in the restaurant whilst visiting Llandudno.

The restaurant and menu which takes inspiration from bygone days but given a modern interpretation.

Fabulous local Welsh produce is always served with a flair and friendliness befitting their byline, 'Friendly Tradition in Historical Surroundings'.

Conwy has given its name to a river, a mountain, a magnificent castle with a complete ring of medieval town walls and a championship links golf course that played a distinctive roll in two World Wars.

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 it’s 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 it’s challenge matched by a spectacular setting between mountain, river and sea.

One of the oldest courses on Wales’ northern coastline, North Wales was once described by the great Henry Cotton as ‘a gem’. Situated on Llandudno’s West Shore, this natural links course has long contributed to the attractions of this popular resort and helps to make the area a magnet for the golfing tourist.

North Wales offers it’s biggest challenge to those golfers blessed with a hook for it’s front nine runs out alongside the railway line and the back none returns along the coast. It saves two of it’s toughest tests for the end – the 16th and 17th holes. They are back-to-back par threes, and short ones at that, but they are extremely difficult. Nicknamed ‘O Hell’ and ‘Hello’, they face in opposite directions and therefore serve up the wind in your face and at your back. The 16th points directly into the prevailing wind and can require any tee shot from a three-wood to a nine-iron. The 17th thereupon reverses the problem and, between them, they can cause havoc with your score.
