The Golf Course was reinstated in 1995 by a small band of willing volunteers after many years of neglect and land changes. Originally known as the Barmouth and District Golf Club and then the Meirionnydd Golf Club, research has shown that the club was formed prior to the 1890's with a part of Penrhyn Farm House which was close to the Harbour being rented out for people to meet and store their clubs. In those early days, most golfers would travel the short distance across the harbour from Barmouth by either boat or ferry.
From the Clubhouse they walked a short distance to commence their play (9 Holes) from the first Tee and in the direction of the present clubhouse and back. One of the bunkers on the original course is still used today and is part of the 2nd fairway.
It is an ideal course for beginners wishing to get started and if you don't have your own clubs and balls, these are available from the Clubhouse for a nominal fee. The course is open throughout the year (weather permitting) and if you have your own clubs and the clubhouse is closed, there is a honesty box is at the entrance to the course.
Whilst the non golfers play off the yellow Tee markers throughout the year, there are extended Tees available to the experienced golfers (out of the holiday season) which also includes a couple of par 4's. There are many challenges on this flat and tight course such as smaller greens and ditches, not forgetting the thick rough collecting the odd wayward shot.
