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.Read our full review

Most Helpful Review
We stayed here as a group of 12 and played both courses over the two days. The hotel rooms were cracking, dinner was plentiful and really well cooked and just what we needed after the first days golf. Even when we got held up and had to inform the lady we would be late, she was very helpful and accommodating. The courses are laid out brillantly, with a mix of super hard holes and some that make you think you are better than you are!!! The Welsh National has many more trees to make you hit a straight ball from the tee than the Lakes, but clearly the Lakes has the water to help you stay straight. However on both courses the Greens were good, but not great. We could see that some work had been done, with the deep scarring probably essential to make them perfect for the next few months, but why do both courses at the same time?? We would have expected at least one to be of such a high standard that when we got back to our own club we would be raving about it, however we could not. This is a GREAT venue, EXCELLENT value for money, the staff are SUPERB but the greens needed to be better to make us rave about it. - Apr 29 2014

Good course but lots of standing water everywhere. I imagine it would be lovely to play in the summer.
(Round played: Apr 2018 - Score: 87 Handicap: 22.4)
Poorly drained, too long between green an tee, poor signage, virtually unplayable in the wet
(Round played: Mar 2018 - Score: 99 Handicap: 13)
Very wet under foot but very nice course. Look forward to trying it when it's a bit drier.

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.

Very nice course, not too much water despite the name! Good test for all abilities and good condition.
