Caption for Harlech, Castle And Golf Links 1908: Harlech Castle was begun in 1283. The town clusters around the stronghold, clinging to the steep slopes in a series of steeply inclined roads. Harlech Castle is the very image of a mediaeval stronghold. Imposingly set on its crag overlooking the sands of Morfa Harlech and the famous golf course, it is little changed today from this view. The song 'Men of Harlech' relates to its eight-year siege during the Wars of the Roses.

Memories of Harlech, Castle and Golf Links 1908

My late husband was the professional at Royal St Davids for many years and the only golfer so far to have been both Welsh Amateur Champion and Welsh Professional Champion twice. We lived at 'Plas Owain' which is the house just above the Golf Links on the curve of the road up the hill. It was built in 1907.
