Although it takes a good deal of effort to get to this tranquil links tucked away on the Mid Wales coast, visitors are well rewarded for their journey with a course that has not rested on its laurels. Last year saw the reshaping and ‘naturalising' of the bunkers, new teeing grounds built and the growth of some serious, and at times punishing, rough.

Panellists' comments: "An excellent location for getting away from it all"; "Short 16th provides excellent risk-reward option late on"
