There are plenty of things to do in the area, from cycling to walking, fishing and exploring the heritage of the area, as you will see from other pages. However, this is just another option for your time spent in Mid Wales:
First established in 1894 in Deer Park, Powis Castle, Welshpool Golf Club relocated to Red Bank on the outskirts of the town before finally moving to its current location on the Golfa Hill in 1930. This James Braid designed course is situated just across the border from England into Mid Wales on the A458, 3 miles outside of Welshpool. The 18 holes that make up this magnificent course, once played won’t be forgotten in a hurry. The views are simply spectacular, a panoramic vista of miles of welsh hillside and farmland with the mountains of Snowdonia as a backdrop. For those desiring some variety in their golfing schedules it doesn’t come any more exciting than this.
Llanymynech Golf Club – Drive In Wales – Putt In England
Perched on top of a prominent hill and surrounded by sheer cliff faces, Llanymynech Golf Club offers a unique challenge to all golfers from the aspiring amateur to the seasoned pro.
The course boasts a unique claim to fame in that you can play one round of golf in two separate countries, courtesy of Offa’s Dyke running through the course. On the 4th hole you tee off in Wales and putt out in England. The 5th and 6th hole remain in England before you are cordially welcomed back into Wales on the 7th tee. And then, you’re challenged to concentrate on the game when the views are pretty spectacular!
