There's something about battling the elements and heading out for a rousing game of golf in the blustery autumn weather; or perhaps it's the après-golf that's appealing at this time of year... Whichever, there are some fabulous golf courses in the area so bring your clubs with you and make the most of some down time to fit in a couple of rounds.
Of course, in these rugged and beautiful surroundings, the clubs in West Wales have the most amazing views too, so don't miss out!
1. Cardigan Golf Club
Our nearest course, and a fabulous one. The views from here are just stunning; with the Preseli Hills, Bardsey Island, and the Llyn Peninsula in the surrounding area. In fact, golf writer Furman Bisher said, '...the view from the top of the Cardigan course is the finest I’ve seen anywhere in golf”. The club hosts regional and international matches, so it's definitely worth a visit!
2. Newport Golf Club
This course is so picturesque, and one of the best links courses in the UK; it's right on the coast with stunning Newport beach to enjoy while you play. The clubhouse also houses the Cat Rock Café, so there's the added pleasure of a fabulous meal to be had either side of your game, too.
3. Priskilly Forest
'Idyllic' is the best word for this gorgeous and immaculate course, with stunning views towards Strumble Head and the Preseli Hills. A wonderful advantage with this course is that if you have someone in your party who isn't playing, they can enjoy a lovely woodland walk, wander through the gardens, or enjoy a cuppa in Y Cabin Cafe Bar.
4. Haverfordwest Golf Club
Set in majestic parkland, this challenging course is just outside the historic town of Haverfordwest, and a constant programme of investment means that this tree lined course has some of the best parkland greens in Wales. There is a modern clubhouse with home cooked meals to replenish the calories you've worked off!
