   Vale of Llangollen Golf Club Est. 1908

Where2Golf says: 

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. 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.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
