The Best of Golf in Wales

By: Golfshake Editor | Thu 26 Apr 2018 | Comments

Featuring spectacular links courses and the host venue of the 2010 Ryder Cup, Golf in Wales remains the most underrated offering in the country. We have brought together several of our ‘Best of’ Features and Reviews to complete a comprehensive Guide to Golf in Wales, hopefully serving as a useful tool for golfers looking to experience some remarkable layouts and memorable destinations. 

Including Royal Porthcawl and Holyhead Golf Club, Derek Clements has selected 10 Must Play Golf Courses in Wales, which is a stunning collection that serves as a fine example of the depth and range of quality that exists within Wales. Also check out the Golfshake Course Section and our Interactive Tee Time Search to find out where to play.

However, more uniquely, we have analysed the Golfshake Course Section – and its thousands of independent reviews and ratings – to discover courses that have been ‘Highly Recommended’ by regular users of Golfshake, showcasing high performing venues across a range of price points. Discover the Top Wales Golf Courses Reviewed on Golfshake with more than 25 independent reviews. The Golfshake reviews/ratings are based off the expectations of everyday golfers.

Celtic Manor Resort

The Celtic Manor Resort famously hosted the Ryder Cup in 2010, when Colin Montgomerie's Europe overcame the United States in a dramatic finish. Having previously been home to the Wales Open, the Resort has become a popular favourite with golfers, and we have many features on Golfshake that showcase what makes Celtic Manor such a great venue.

Golfshake Ambassador Matt Holbrook writes about the 'Celtic Manor Experience' and we have a recently added article on 10 Reasons to Play Golf at Celtic Manor. These provide insight into why this has become a premier destination in Wales.

The Vale Resort

The Vale Resort is a 4-star venue located in South Wales. The hotel facilities combine with this to provide a resort that is dedicated to the highest standards in fine dining and comfortable accommodation, along with an exciting and entertaining golf experience. Golfshake Writer Alex Picken has written this detailed Stay & Play Guide for The Vale. And if you need to be more specific, here are 10 Reasons to Stay and Play at the Vale Resort.
