Wales Golf Holidays successfully kept the honour being voted 'Wales Best Inbound Tour Operator' for a 3rd year in a row!

For the past twenty seven years, The Senior Open Championship has been played over some of the best courses in the world, including Royal Lytham & St Annes, Royal County Down, Royal Portrush, Muirfield and Royal Troon to name but a few. This year it returns for the second time to the hallowed fairways of Royal Porthcawl.
Ian Richardson and Ian Symonds teamed up again to review this fine old parkland course in Penarth, South Wales: The Glamorganshire GC.
On a lovely, if rather windy, autumnal day in October the intrepid roving reporters visited The Players Golf Club at Codrington in Gloucestershire. This is a serious bit of real estate with 3 golf courses and a 7700 yard Championship course utilizing holes from the various courses which is arranged once a month. The Codrington course ranges from 5550 yards for ladies up to 7106 yards off black boxes. We played the course off yellow boxes! (6044 yards). The Stranahan is an 18 hole 5500 yard course and the third is a challenging 9 hole par 3 course.
Gower Golf Club is situated in a beautiful part of West Wales that boasts some idyllic views of the Gower Peninsula. As you approach the course you are greeted by a modern club house that has a contemporary interior to match as well as on-site accommodation should you wish to ‘Play & Stay’.
Swansea Bay GC is located at the gateway of Swansea city and is one of the oldest courses in Wales. The course layout is something quite unique as it boasts both links and parkland style holes. It begins gently with a number of parkland holes after which the course is bisected by the A483 while the Port Talbot bypass bridge imposes itself for a couple of holes, but this doesn’t detract from the experience.
The Wales Golf Holidays team are proud to announce that 2016 will be our 25th year in golf tour operation!
Ian Richardson of Wales Golf Holidays was accompanied by David Parr, an aptly named and much travelled golfer who is known to many as Mr Golf. Despite the recent biblical quantities precipitation the course was presented in excellent condition, testament to its location on high ground, its design and its maintenance.
