What the club says: The Vale Resort has two 18 hole championship courses. The Wales National is one of the longest golf courses outside of the USA - at 7,433 yards and par 73 off the championship tees. It opened in June 2003 by Great Britain Olympic gold medalist Sir Steve Redgrave and has hosted multiple Europro and Challenge Tour events. The aptly named Lake Course (par 72) is dominated by a 20-acre lake and has water coming into play on 12 of its holes.

Not in best condition

First time I’ve played this course which has a great variety of holes, a few are quite long and I recommend a buggy !
Although a great design we didn’t see it in its best condition with most of the fairways quite long and needing a cut (probably a by product of a wet couple of weeks after many weeks of dry weather). The greens had recently been dressed and it felt as though too much sand had been used as they were very difficult and inconsistent to put on. The tee markers and flags could also do with a little TLC - particularly the tee markers which could do with a coat of paint.
A great course, we just didn’t see it looking it’s best today

Good course but lots of standing water everywhere. I imagine it would be lovely to play in the summer.

Wasn't in great condition

I was really looking forward to my round on the Wales National but it fell below expectations. The course was waterlogged on most fairways, the rough was unkempt and two holes were out of action. It made for a frustrating round.
