The daffodils are just popping their heads above the soil, the days are stretching out a little more, and the mornings are crisp; spring has nearly arrived at Penrhos Park. With it comes the dry weather and the familiar sight of happy golfers strolling across the fairways! At our holiday park in West Wales, we are proud of our championship golf courses, immaculately maintained by our grounds keepers and surrounded by panoramic views of the Ceredigion countryside. We believe that golf is the ultimate sport; it gets the body moving and active, and requires technical skill and ability, all the while providing relaxation for the mind.
'Golf is a great distraction because it will not let you focus on anything but that ball for hours, that is one of the beauties of the game' - Golf Professional But what makes golf at our family-run caravan park in mid Wales so great? Why are our members like family to us? Let us take you on you a journey and explore the magic of our fairways...
Championship golf courses...
Ask any of our members and they'll agree that our Championship 18-hole course is the jewel in our crown. With a clever blend of challenging holes, our flagship course will prove exciting for even the most seasoned golfers. Originally commissioned by the founder of Penrhos Park, John Pugh-Evans, the course was designed by one of the UK's leading golf course architects, David Williams! Not only did he design an ambitious course, he also worked with the rural, Welsh scenery surrounding the resort to make the very most of a golfer's experience of nature. It's important to us that everyone feels included on the fairways at Penrhos Park! That’s exactly why we created our Red Kite course. The 9-hole course was named after these incredible birds of prey, native to the Ceredigion area, whose reddish-brown bellies can often be spotted flying overhead! The Red Kite course is the perfect place to ignite a new passion and discover a new hobby. Its smaller size makes it perfect for beginners and juniors, whilst still offering the full golf experience. Even for those returning to the sport looking to refresh their skills, this course is an ideal spring-board before trying your hand at the 18-hole course.
The perfect place to practice...
Our purpose built, floodlit driving range is the only one in mid-Wales, and is a well-equipped setting for all to practice their golfing talents. Whether you are brand new to the sport and just want to give it a go while on your caravan holiday in West Wales, or perhaps you are an experienced pro visiting the area - our driving range is the perfect place to practice. The facility is open seven days a week, covered and floodlit, making it an ideal range for all seasons. Plus, if you're just getting started in the sport, why not borrow a Four-Iron from us? You may find yourself on the receiving end of a helpful tip from one of our resident golf professionals!
Where strangers become friends... Our Club House has seen many a new friendship being made. Our members are an exciting mix of people from different walks of life but all with one single passion…golf. 'Love the people, love the area.' Alan Parker - Golf Club Member of 29 years
