Wales

Wales has a population of 3 million, is the size of Massachusetts, a quarter the size of Scotland, has semi independence from the UK, its own National Assembly and a language of its own treated as equal to English. Until recently few have thought of it as golf destination.

Although rugby is the national sport, Wales has a little known stock of excellent golf courses which compare favourably in quality with their British and Irish neighbours and in many cases can be played at a fraction of the price. Most of the higher rated golf courses are located along the south coast from Newport in the east to Tenby in the west, a 100 miles stretch served mainly by express highways and around the north coast nearby the National Park of Snowdonia.

Both the main southern cities of Cardiff, at its peak the busiest coal port in the world but now Wales leading tourist destination and Swansea have excellent courses nearby, most notably Royal Porthcawl and Pennard. Further to the west, Celtic Manor, a large conference hotel now boats three excellent courses including its newest, the 2010 which will host the 2010 Ryder Cup.

Besides excellent golf, the north of Wales offers stunning countryside, including Snowdonia, the highest mountain range in the UK and fascinating historic remains in particular the castles of Harlech, Conwy, Beaumaris and Caernarfon which make up “The Castles and Town Walls of King Edward” World Heritage site.

Our favoured courses in the north include Royal St Davids at Harlech, Conwy and Nefyn & District with ocean views comparable to Old Head in Ireland. We recommend anyone travelling between the two coasts break their journey at Aberdovey, a traditional challenging links which is also the home course of Welsh golf star Ian Woosnam.
