Description

The par 73 Wales National golf course at The Vale Resort is situated in over 650 acres of stunning Welsh countryside, and is also just a stone's throw away from Cardiff. It was opened in June 2003 by Great Britain Olympic gold medallist Sir Steve Redgrave. The Wales National is a UK golf course of distinction, one of the UK's and Europe's newest championship golf courses and at 7,433 yards from the championship tees - it's one of the longest golf courses outside the USA. The golf course boasts some of the UK's finest scenery; a mixture of mature wooded areas, wide and narrow fairways and vast water and bunker features, all set in the spectacular countryside of Wales, with its abundance of wildlife including badgers, swans, rabbits and hawks.You will discover a golf course designed to be a challenging test for even the lowest of handicaps. "A great UK golf course - great course, great setting, an excellent four star hotel and fine dining. The total golf package." The Wales National has already played host to several European Challenge Tour and Seniors Tour events as well as the Europo Tour. The 16th hole was voted one of the top 10 par 4s in UK golf, by Golf World magazine, whilst the 2nd hole is the longest par 5 in Wales.
