What makes golf in South Wales so special?

A picturesque golf haven

Often referred to as The Vale of Glamorgan, South Wales is the place where great golf and beautiful scenery go hand in hand. An increasingly popular choice in recent years, it is home to incredible resorts boasting five-star hospitality and exciting championship golf courses, with the added bonus of bustling nightlife.

It is filled with some of the UK’s best-kept secrets including homely and friendly country inns and guesthouses. And, with easy access by road and rail from London, Liverpool Manchester and Birmingham, you don’t have to travel very far. Summer is the peak season for your Welsh golf adventure with warm weather making for excellent golfing conditions.

Our experts say...

South Wales is only a 2-3 hour drive west of London, and dotted along this spectacular coastline you have 6 wonderful links golf courses. Further inland you can play the 2010 Ryder Cup course at Celtic Manor as well as some other great parkland courses. The best of both worlds!
