Silver Birch Golf Club or Betws Yn Rhos Golf Club is a picturesque 18 hole golf course situated in the hills above the Beautiful North Wales Coast Line.
In the early 90’s there was nowhere for young people or adults to play Golf. They felt intimidated by their lack of knowledge, of the rules, the etiquette and had no idea how to play Golf. They didn’t want to spend money joining a Club without finding out if they liked to play. We created Silver Birch as a ‘Pay & Play’ golf club where everyone could play Golf to their heart's content.
The course was officially opened by a local dignitary, Councillor Mrs. Ena Wynne MBE, on the 24th June 1995. When Golfers have been with us a couple of years, they gain confidence in their golf and move on to the other Clubs in the area. Many have been back to thank us for having the opportunity to learn how to play.
In 2002, we acquired more land from a neighboring farmer and created the ‘Back-9’ which was opened in May 2004. This course was also designed by Mr. Stewart Finney and is very different to the original 9-holes. The front-9 is open pasture land, the back-9 has 6000 trees planted to define the fairways and make it a more challenging course.
