Welsh Courses

The lovely, proud country to the West side of the British Isles, Wales has come to even greater prominence as a golf destination in recent years. Its elevation in 2010 to being the Ryder Cup venue put it on the map and so many beautiful courses, known to many people who appreciate the great game, then came to the attention of so many more golfers! There is a seeming desire on the part of the Royal & Ancient Golf Club to take the Open to the West side of the country and Royal Porthcawl is in prime position to host that if it happens. So be amongst those to come and appreciate the great courses of Wales like Royal Porthcawl and its equals like Royal St David`s, Pennard, Aberdovy and so many more!
Aberdovy Golf Club

Aberdovy Golf Course, Wales
Aberdovey Golf Club is enchantingly set within the Snowdonia National Park at the mouth of the Dovey Estuary, and the links are wedged between the Cambrian Mountain range and the shore. Despite its old age, Aberdovey is not short, a true links course measuring over 6,500 yards from the back tees. It will test, and has tested, the very best golfers, playing host to a number of amateur championships over the years. It was here that Ian Woosnam came to practise on firm, fast greens prior to playing in the U.S. Masters each April. The course offers a challenge from a range of tees for golfers of all abilities.

Ashburnham Golf Club

Ashburnham Golf Course is located in Burry Port, a short drive from Llanelli and is the most prestigious golf course in Carmarthenshire, South Wales. It is one of the finest Championship Links courses in Britain and one of the top 10 golf courses in Wales. Currently ranked as the 3rd best course in Wales by Golf World, Ashburnham has hosted prestigious professional and amateur Championships, including,  two British PGA Championships, the 1976 Martini International Tournament on the European tour and Mens, Ladies and Boy’s Home Internationals. The six  Open Champion Harry Vardon said “The course I like best in Wales is Ashburnham.”

Celtic Manor Roman Road Course

Celtic Manor Roman Road Golf Course, Wales
The very first of the Resort’s courses, Roman Road opened in 1995 and was ranked ‘the top inland course in Wales’ by Golf Monthly Magazine. This par 70 course overlooks the Severn Estuary with views across to Somerset and Devon. Designed by Robert Trent Jones Senior, it is named after the old Via Julia Roman highway that ran through its fairways. Venue for numerous European Tour and Senior Tour events, this challenging course features some long open fairways but also a number of twists and turns through trees and across streams.

Celtic Manor 2010 Course

Celtic Manor 2010 Golf Course, Wales
Built to stage The 2010 Ryder Cup, the first course to be built specifically for golf’s greatest team tournament, The Twenty Ten measures a robust 7,493 yards off the back tees and has a par of 71. With water hazards on half of its holes, the course has six signature holes and presents many more memorable tests and risk-and-reward dilemmas. One of the features of the spectacular course is its variety with many of the earlier holes having a links-like feel with long rough and greenside swales, before the middle section reveals the full extent of the lake-lined challenge. A tough finishing stretch culminates in a real sting in the tail at the 18th.


Conway Golf Course, Wales

This lovely links in the resort town of Conwy has stunning views of the mountains and river and was layed out in the 1890`s by Jack Morris, the nephew of 4 times Open champion, Old Tom Morris. The course was refined later by the renowned architect Frank Pennink and Ryder Cup players Welshman Brian Huggett and Neil Coles.

Pennard Golf Course

Pennard Golf Course, Wales

Pennard is a magnificent links course situated 8 miles west of Swansea, with spectacular views over Three Cliffs Bay on the Gower Peninsula, designated the UK’s first area of outstanding natural beauty. Golf has been played at Pennard since 1896, although the course owes most of its appeal today first to James Braid and then to C.K. Cotton. The holes are routed over classically undulating and tumbling links land, full of hummocks, hillocks and hollows with dunes large and small and carefully placed revetted bunkers, exactly what we might hope to find beside the shore. Yet this exceptional terrain is not beside the shore – it is 200 feet above sea level. No wonder Pennard is known as “The Links in the Sky”.

Royal St David’s

Royal St.David's Golf Course, Wales

The golf club at Harlech is a fascinating combination of history, lovely mountain vistas and great golf. Founded in 1894 it was designed to give Wales a competitor for St Andrews, Royal St Georges or Royal Liverpool who all sent representation to the opening. Royal St. David’s is indeed royal, Edward VII gave the club his patronage and the Duke of Windsor (Edward VIII) captained the Club in 1935 whilst he was Prince of Wales. Royal St. David’s has, over the years, played host to many exciting events, including five Ladies’ Championships, ten series of Home International Matches (ladies, men and boys). Eleven Welsh Amateur Championships and Welsh Ladies Championships, the Seniors’ Amateur Championship and the Youths and Boys Amateur Championships as well as the first five Wales Seniors Opens on the PGA European Seniors Tour, one Ladies European Tour event in 2009 and two Club Professional’s Championships.

Southerndown Golf Club

Southerndown Golf Course, Wales

Unusually Southerndown has been crafted on limestone-heath and accounts for the course`s free drainage above its wonderful sea views and the typical heather, bracken and gorse of a links or heathland course. Architecture greats Willie Fernie, Herbert Fowler, Willie Park, Harry Colt and Donald Steel – some great names in golf course design – have all played their part over the years in creating Southerndown as we know it today.
