Vale of Llangollen Golf Club

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1908

Vale of Llangollen Golf Club: Nestling on the banks of the River Dee and overlooked by the ancient fortress of Dinas Bran, the Vale of Llangollen's manicured fairways and usually excellent greens attract golfers from far and wide. Together with Llanymynech (15 miles to the south) this is another challenging and very scenic golf course on the English-Welsh border.

Whereas Llanymynech is located up on the hills, the Vale of Llangollen is situated in the valley floor alongside the beautiful River Dee, overlooked by the glorious hills of the Welsh borders. Some holes are strongly tree-lined, others less so, providing an invitingly open area into which to drive those tee-shots.

Pick of the holes: the river holes, the long par-4 9th, short par-5 15th and par-4 16th are the highlight of the round, with the 9th perhaps being the most memorable. Not only is the course popular with visiting golfers, but it has also hosted many County, Professional and Welsh Amateur events.
