It says much for Aberdovey that among the legions captivated by this classic links course are two golfing greats from different times and backgrounds, Bernard Darwin and Ian Woosnam. They both fell in love with Aberdovey. Darwin was there when the club was founded in 1892 but remembers golf being played on that precious strip of turf between the sea shore and hills in the early 1880's when they cut nine flowerpots into the soil as holes. Woosnam has also found it to be a spiritual home and has sought respite there from the demands of the world circuit. Located at the mouth of the Dovey and wends a traditional route out and back, with sand dunes as sentinels and the wind as friend and foe. It is a place worth a long pilgrimage for any golfer.
