Anglesey may be the biggest island in the Irish Sea but some people are still surprised that we manage to pack in no fewer than nine golf courses.
Still when you’ve got 278 square miles of countryside and clifftop, not to mention breathtaking views of Snowdonia, it seems a shame not to add a few raised greens and the odd dogleg into the mix.
And while our courses might be within a Tiger Woods drive of each other, they’re all different. Eighteen-hole and nine-hole. Parkland, heathland and links.
Difficult to know where to start. Our advice is to invest in an Anglesey Golf Pass
. It will cost you just £79 or, looked at another way, about the price of a single outing at a big name course in Scotland or Ireland.
But the pass allows you to play a round at no fewer than five different courses. Or the same course five times, if you prefer. Either way, you’ll probably want to make a week of it – which is why you can book a hotel at the same time as your tee slots.
Not forgetting the latest course to join the party - Storws Wen
near the beach resort of Benllech. This nine-hole gem provides views of Red Wharf Bay while you’re grappling with its tight fairways or trying to keep out of its signature water hazards.
And it offers perhaps the last word in holiday accommodation for golf nuts. Four cottages overlooking the ninth green and no more than a purposeful few strides from the first tee.
