Welshpool Golf Course

Golfa Hill, Welshpool, Powys, SY21 9AQ, Wales

Anyone who has ever played at Welshpool Golf Club will remember it as a great experience and a great test of golf. Most visitors come from the West Midlands and newcomers are always amazed by the breathtaking scenery found all over the course.

It was designed by the veteran champion James Braid in the early part of the last century and the giant peaks of Snowdon and Cader Idris are both discernible in the wonderful vistas of mountain scenery. John Stutt of Paisley, who built the course, likened it to the famous Gleneagles course. He insisted, however, that Gleneagles does not offer anything like the spectacular shots with which Welshpool abounds.

To quote Bernard Darwin, a famous golfing writer of his day, "It is a Golf Club of Dreams", adding after playing the course for the first time, "how incomplete has been my golfing education until I had seen it".

Fantastic offers are always available for parties of four or more. These include coffee and bacon baps for breakfast, lunch and an evening roast as well as unlimited golf. Weekday prices during the winter period are £20 for weekdays and £22 for weekends and bank holidays. For the summer period these prices are £20 and £28 respectively.
