Driving along the winding coastal road from Machynlleth to Aberdovey is like watching a good movie trailer – it builds your anticipation for the prospect ahead.

Here, the mountains have fallen into the sea creating a thin sliver of true linksland that somehow manages to be both traditional and unique.

The course follows an out-and-back path that is flanked by an old railway line and dunes that mark the boundary between the course and the beach. These are where the most interesting holes can be found.

The short par-3 12th is the epitome of naturally rugged, British links golf. NT

+ Wonderful setting between hills and sea; excellent value
– Condition can be variable; a little inaccessible
