Aberdovey is one of the many reasons why. Sandwiched between the shifting dunes of the Dyfi Estuary and the Snowdonia

National Park's towering peaks, its layout is shaped as much by nature as its human designers, which include greats like Herbert

Fowler and James Braid. A word of warning though: players seeking manicured greens and predictable conditions are destined

to be disappointed. A game at wild and windswept Aberdovey is an elemental experience, a combination of rugged terrain

and mercurial weather throwing up fresh challenges with every round. One player who appreciated Aberdovey's rough-hewn charm was Bernard Darwin, the godfather of sports writers and grandson of naturalist Charles. As a child the future golf

correspondent for The Times and Country Life witnessed the club's birth, when nine flowerpots were sunk into the ground to

serve as makeshift holes. He went on to become one of the club's most committed members, describing Aberdovey as the place

his 'soul loved best of all the courses in the world'. Today, it remains easy to see why Darwin was so enamoured. Highlights of a round are numerous. The third hole requires a blind shot over rolling dunes, leaving you in suspense until you follow your ball towards the green. Elsewhere, the par-four 16th demands a precise drive between dense rough to the right and train tracks to the left in order to reach the small elevated green. aberdoveygolf.co.uk

Like the sound of that? Try these:

Ashburnham

A long-standing favourite. Weaving through the dunes on the shores of Carmarthen Bay, a round on Ashburnham's speedy greens sees players following in the footsteps of giants. Dai Rees, Bernard Gallagher and Sam Torrance all won tournaments here before going on to become Ryder Cup captains. ashburnhamgolfclub.co.uk

Prestatyn

The most northerly course on mainland Wales, Prestatyn is a challenging prospect regardless of the conditions. But when the

prevailing south-westerly wind picks up, it becomes a test for any golfer. Things are kept fair by smooth, well-maintained greens, but you'll need to master the low punch shot to guarantee a successful round. prestatyngolfclub.co.uk

Royal Porthcawl

Quite possibly our most famous links course. Venue for the 2014 Senior Open Championship, Royal Porthcawl is the epitome of a classic coastal links. With holes facing all points of the compass, the wind blowing in off the Bristol Channel plays a significant but unpredictable role in every shot. royalporthcawl.com
