Wales Holidays visitors can choose from around 200 golf courses throughout Wales, parkland courses in mountain settings, inspirational links and golf courses where you can play beneath the shadow of a castle.
In Mid Wales, enjoy Golf as it should be, at friendly, inviting sites where the welcome is extended without reservation to visitors. St Giles Golf Club, Maesmawr Golf Club and St Idloes Golf Club are all nine-hole courses in the heart of Mid Wales situated in Newtown, Caersws and Llanidloes. Welshpool Golf Club is an 18-hole golf course located on the Golfa hilltops and The Welsh Border Golf Club Complex includes a par 70 18-hole Competition Course and a par 30 9-hole Academy Course. North of Welshpool is the Llanymynech Golf Club with unique features of 15 holes in Wales and 3 in England. Golf at Machynlleth means golf in idyllic surroundings, with easy walking and an uncrowded course. The course is at its best with colour from the gorse and rhododendrons and the occasional red kite circling overhead. While in the Llandrindod Wells and Knighton areas, both towns offer attractive courses with an 18-hole par 69 at Llandrindod and 9 holes at Knighton.
Golf in the Builth Wells and Brecon areas can be enjoyed at Builth Wells Golf Club and at Cradoc Golf club & Driving Range, both with 18 holes. Brecon Golf Club is on the edge of town on the banks of the Usk, an attractive nine-hole course with a great reputation for being in good condition all year round. In the Abergavenny and Hay-on-Wye area, Rhosgoch Golf and Leisure Club is a peaceful oasis surrounded by outstanding views of the Radnorshire Hills and, near Abergavenny, the Monmouthshire is an 18-hole par 70 course to suits all levels.
