Our story so far
When it comes to golf in North Wales, Silver Birch has been leading the way for nearly three decades.
Located in the heart of Betws yn Rhos, a stunning village near the coastal town of Abergele, Conwy, is our impressive 18-hole golf course with panoramic views of North Wales’ most beloved landscapes.
Our picturesque pay & play golf course was founded by Bryn and Menna Jones in the mid- nineties and o f cially opened in June 1995 when these local legends transformed their farmland into a top Welsh golf course with beautiful views all around. Back then, it was a 9-hole course (the front 9, as you’d know them today).
By 2002, we enlisted designer Stewart Finney once again to complete the masterpiece, launching the back 9 holes in 2004 – a more challenging addition in comparison to the open pasture of the original course.
The back 9 holes were framed by stunning Silver Birch trees to define the fairways and inject excitement for the more competitive player looking for an exhilarating golf day out.
From its launch, Silver Birch was proud to be the first pay and play golf course in North Wales, where everybody of all levels and abilities could play golf to their hearts’ content; established for beginners who wanted to dip their toes into the golfing world without the cost of membership, for those who enjoy golf days out with family and friends, as well as for the avid golfer looking to tee off at a sought-after golf course.
