Golf And More In North Wales In 2016
Posted on 17 May 2016
North Wales is a region with a wide variety of challenging, scenic and fantastic golf courses, with many of them chosen to be many people’s first impressions of the UK’s golfing facilities at large by functioning as venues for major sporting events such as the Welsh Team Championships. We believe that the Tyn Rhos Country House is the perfect hotel near Snowdonia for those who require an unspoiled, quality experience in North Wales’ array of friendly, welcoming, award-winning clubs.
With an estimated £37.9m coming from 79,000 overnight golf visitors and 139,000 day visitors in 2014 and continued growth in 2015, North Wales is very much the go-to for world-class championship links courses and hidden gems alike. Staying with us is the best possible option for those which are after a quality, unspoiled golfing experience in friendly welcoming clubs within beautiful North Wales, but wish to do so in the height of style.
Some noteworthy clubs less than an hour’s drive away are as follows:
Caenarfon Golf Club (5.75 miles)
Established over 100 years ago and located between the mountains of Eryri and the Menai Straits, the Club boasts magnificent views, true running greens and challenging holes at 18 holes and almost 6,000 yards.
Maesdu Golf Club (17.10 miles)
A Championship quality course, one hundred years of gold history, stunning scenery with panoramic views across the curving and sweeping Conwy Bay from the Great Orme to the mountains of Snowdonia, Maesdu prides itself on it’s immaculate fairways, challenging greens, and boasts being a true test to all golfers of all ability.
Nefyn & District Golf Club (23.17 miles)
Dramatically located on the cliff tops at the foot of the Porthdinllaen headland, Nefyn has been compared in terms of exhilaration to Ireland’s Old Head of Kinsale. Cited as golf on the edge of the world, Nefyn & District’s Point is world-famous, with the peaks of the Wicklow Mountains across the Irish Sea visible on a clear day.
Yet golf doesn’t have to be all that there is to your stay in North Wales. For golf widows, the oldest city in Wales – Bangor is only a 15 minute drive away and offers a large assortment of shopping experiences. In addition Snowdonia’s fabulous riding stables (situated between the sea and Mount Snowdon) offer truly superb riding experiences amongst some of the most beautiful mountain and coastal scenery in Wales – completely traffic free.
