Links Golf Vacations - Plas Isa Hotel, Criccieth North West Wales.

A warm welcome awaits you at Plas Isa Hotel, a family run hotel with warm, friendly atmosphere and magnificent views of the Castle and across the bay to Harlech & Barmouth.

After a hearty Welsh breakfast, sit in the Conservatory overlooking the bay and the Castle and plan your day of golf.

Upon your return take a walk on the beach or when the sun goes down, why not enjoy a meal of really exceptional quality and value in the Hotel's A la Carte Restaurant or have a drink in the comfortable bar.

A former president of Royal St David's put it perfectly: "Harlech is a magical place". So it is. Deep in Merlin country, the course is in the shadow of the towering castle built by Edward I in the 13th century to keep the Welsh in check. It is a matter of historic irony that those majestic ramparts now form the backcloth of a golf course that subjugates Englishmen or, indeed, any visitor.

Royal St David's - like Royal Porthcawl - would be counted in any list of the world's best courses. When the castle was built, the sea lapped the rocks beneath it but over the centuries retreated to leave the expanse of natural linksland that was never meant to be anything other that a great golf course.

Only twice do successive holes proceed the same direction so the wind invariably spreads trouble among the dunes and although it is not long, it has been described by professionals as the world's toughest par 69. Host to a throng of championships in its time including the 2001 Wales Seniors Open and favoured by all manner of men – in 1934, King George V was Patron and the Prince of Wales was Captain – Royal St David's has rewarded many a long journey with a unique experience.

Located about a mile from where they filmed the TV series ‘The Prisoner’. Designed by James Braid the Course is made up of two distinct halves. The front nine are away from the coast and although the soil is and the terrain is more accurately described as heathland – though water makes an appearance on 5 of these holes.

The back nine head for the sea, and some beautiful scenery, and the course is transformed into pure links that have been likened to a miniature Troon.
