• Overview

    The South Wales long weekend golf tour is the second of the breaks and includes four of the best courses in South Wales.

    From the exceptional links course of Pyle & Kenfig, to the unsurpassed cliff top setting of Pennard, we will be playing four quite different, but quite superb golf courses.  Our hotel for the tour is the Stradey Park Hotel in Llanelli.  Independently owned, providing excellent rooms, superb cuisine and attentive service, the hotel is an ideal base for the tour.

  • Itinerary

    Thursday 24th July:

    – 18 holes Pyle & Kenfig Golf Club

    – Check in to the Stradey Park Hotel, Llanelli

    – Dinner at the hotel

    Pyle & Kenfig Golf Club  Pyle & Kenfig, possesses high dunes and deep challenging valleys in a layout that offers plenty of diversity.  The course has hosted many important tournaments including the 2002 Amateur Championships and the Home Internationals in 2003 and 2006.  It has also hosted many national and professional tournaments.  Originally mapped out in 1922 by H.S. Colt, large areas of the course were requisitioned by the army in World War II, after which it was decided to move seawards into dunesland that designer P. Mackenzie Ross described as a ´golfer´s paradise´.

    Friday 25th July:

    – Breakfast

    – 18 holes Pennard Golf Club

    – Dinner at the hotel

    Pennard Golf Club  Golf has been played at Pennard since 1896, although the course owes most of its appeal today first to James Braid and then to C.K. Cotton.  The holes at Pennard are laid out over classically undulating and tumbling linksland, full of hummocks, hillocks and hollows and pocked with dunes large and small.  Yet this exceptional terrain is not beside the sea, it is two hundred feet above it!  No wonder Pennard has been called ‘the links in the sky’.  Pennard has been ranked in the UK´s top 100 courses for the last four years and is currently rated as the fourth best course in Wales.

    Saturday 26th July:

    – Breakfast

    – 18 holes Neath Golf Club

    – Dinner at the hotel

    Neath Golf Club  Neath Golf Club is a historic heathland course designed in 1934 by the legendary five times Open Champion, James Braid. Described by Henry Cotton, “I’ve travelled the entire golfing world, but never before seen such golfing beauty as at Neath.”  The course is a magnificent test of golf and is one of the best in South Wales offering a different challenge on every hole.

    Sunday 27th July:

    – Breakfast

    – Check out of the hotel

    – 18 holes Machynys Golf Club

    Machynys Golf Club  A world-class golf course in a dramatic setting, Machynys Peninsula brings the unique Nicklaus Design style to Wales for the first time. An exciting and versatile course, Machynys Peninsula has been designed to challenge the best players in championship conditions and yet still be enjoyable for the higher handicapper, by utilising up to six tees per hole. The shaping of the 3.5 million pound course layout has included the creation of 25 acres of new lakes, salt and fresh water, giving it a unique feel for a links-type golf course.
