Mulberry Inn Golfing Breaks
It must be the bracing breeze from the Welsh and Border Hills which makes golf in this region an even more than ever popular pursuit. If golf is high on your list of recreational activities why not treat yourself during your stay? With Chester to the East and Snowdonia National Park to the West it’s a short trip from England but a big change in atmosphere, culture and countryside. There are lots of enticing ‘come and play me’ golf courses here. The Borderlands has some of the finest parkland courses in Wales, with lush fairways set in rolling countryside. There’s plenty to test low handicappers as well as the more novice golfer. Like the Vale of Llangollen Golf Club – the only inland course in North Wales to hold HSBC Gold status or Hennle Park where the Greens are built to USGA Specifications. You can even play in two countries in one round at Llanymynech – it’s so close to the border that three of its holes are actually in England.
VALE OF LLANGOLLEN GOLF CLUB
