Excellent course in lovely area. Cardigan is a mixture of heathland, links and clifftop golf. Starts with 5 tricky par 4's especially the uphill severe dog left 5th with loads of gorse and a sloping green. I also love the par 4 12th dogleg to an elevated green and one of my favourite holes in all of golf is the par 3 16th 195yds off the yellows downhill to a difficult well guarded green, I have used a variety of clubs to this green in my visits here, anything fom a 5 metal to a 9 iron! Having said that there are certainly no weak holes on the layout. The only possible negatives to Cardigan are that it is a bit out of the way and the weather can be horrendous at times, freezing cold. Anyway a great course and quick efficient service in the 19th. Highly recommended.
Played this last month on a calm day..... a great golf course which needs some good course management in order to get a decent score around it... A fair test of golf.. I can only imagine when the wind picks up, the course would show all it's teeth. Only one complaint... there is no course map on the card.. and no yardage book available either.... not good when it's your first time on the course at 0620am with no-one to guide you. Can't wait until I get another free morning when in the area to try it out again.
Just a quick note regarding the review from:- Rhys (England) 02/07/01 POINT No.1 (An excellent course although I wouldn't call the green fee "amazingly cheap" as in the previous report - £25 weekend, £20 midweek is only reasonableish!!) REPLY POINT No.1 I think I am correct in saying that the £20 and £25 resectively is for A DAY - Not a Round. Amazing value for any course, but especially Cardigan with it's views alone :-) POINT No.2 My only criticism (and there's loads of pluses to counter it) is that the score card contained only a distance planner and no overall layout for the course. I wouldn't complain but I ended up playing up the 9th hole when I should have been playing down the 7th! REPLY POINT No.2 You could not have played the 9th instead of the 7th. They play in opposite directions and the T's are about 500yards apart. It is posible to hit ur drive right, onto the 9th fairway if you are wayward but you would then have to play back the way you just walked to play to the 9th green. AND NO-ONE WOULD DREAM OF A HOLE PLAYING LIKE THAT !!!! Please I urge everyone to give Cardigan a go. It is fantastic. I can be playing really well on my local parkland course in Surrey but when I play @ Cardigan it is a different kettle of chips :-)And the area is great. If you are stopping a few days and it is a nice evening you must go to the SHIP @ Tresaith, or THE FERRY in St Dogmaels. They both have decked terraces. The Ship overlooks Tresaith beach, and you can often see porpoisus or Dolphins jumping out at sea. The Ferry looks over the Teifi, as it meanders out to sea. Both are superb, with lovely food. TRY IT YOU MIGHT LIKE IT :-) FORE ;-)
This is a great course,well worth the green fee and a pleasure to play, the views are excellent, and the course is a good test of golf. I was a bit dissapointed to find the catering facilities closed when we arrived on a Friday morning, so its well worth checking with the club beforehand if you would like to have breakfast etc, but otherwise 10 out of 10

I played this course on a sunny calm day. But standing up on this pininsular looking down at the natural harbour you wonder how it is on a cold march day? This is a gem with some classic links holes with blind shots, open fairways and that links wispy grass rough. The views on every hole are worth the amazingly cheap green fee alone. No one asked me for my handicap card and the local members were very welcoming.
A wonderful test of golf, demanding but not too strenuous for the first 18 holes, however when the mist rolls in off Cardigan Bay as you start the second round of a 36 hole tournament, believe me you are in trouble!!!! \r\nA well scored first 18 means nothing in a "Cardy" fog, and inevitably a 24/28 handicapper with 21yr old eyes will outscore you before the 36 are finished, especially if you are 21++++++!!!!!\r\nA gem of a course, and I and the wife will be back again on many occasions to sample the quality and scenic beauty of Cardigan
