Vale Resort Golf Award winning countryside golf course

The Vale Resort Golf's impressive golf course within pleasing Wales.

Vale Resort Golf

If you like a golf course that is vast, award-winning, woodland-fringed and surrounded by some of Wales most idyllic countryside then wed recommend you tee off at the Vale Resorts championship Wales National Course. Its guaranteed to deliver a challenging golf day youll never forget. But if tricky water features are more up your street, then hot-foot it over to the Vale Resorts Lake Course, where water comes into play on 12 of its 18 holes.

Dont let the fact its staged numerous PGA championships put you off: players of all levels will enjoy these two exceptional courses.

Lake Course

Now nearing its 25th anniversary, the Lake Course continues to demand the full attention of thousands of golfers each year, as well as the odd famous face. Among the names whove taken on the championship golf course are Wales golfers Ian Woosnam and Bernard Gallagher, as well as football star, Gareth Bale.

At 6,436 yards, it certainly packs a punch. From the off, this par-72 course makes clear its not for the faint-hearted, with an opening par-three shot in full view, and striking distance of the hotel. Gulp. Survive that and theres the sizable challenge that accompanies 12 of the championship golf courses 18 holes involving water.

Wales National Course

There are several reasons the Wales National Course should be on your radar. For starters, its a par-73 course - a relative rarity in terms of golfing architecture (theres only one par-73 course on the PGA Tour and thats in Hawaii, in case you were wondering). At 7,433 yards from the championship tees, it is one of the longest golf courses outside the United States. A variety of par shots also helps keep the pace of play varied, challenging even the most competent of golfers.

Another major draw is its setting. The Vale of Glamorgan is sometimes referred to as the garden of Cardiff and youll understand why when you visit the Peter Johnson-designed Wales National Course. Picture mature woodland, wide and narrow fairways, and vast water and bunker features, that are teaming with wildlife.
