Holiday guides: the best golf courses in Pembrokeshire
Pembrokeshire is county of outstanding natural beauty and its coastline is a major for visitors. Whether you love coastal walks or days spent on the beach, Pembrokeshire is the place to be for family escapes and quiet getaways.
But what you may not know is that the region is also home to a variety of top golf courses, many of which are only a short drive (if you excuse the golfing pun) from our Pembrokeshire holiday park.
But with so many courses nearby, which ones should you choose? To help inspire you, we’ve put together a mini guide to some of the best golf courses in Pembrokeshire.
Regarded as one of the finest courses in the British Isles, Tenby was designed by the legendary James Braid. It is known as the birthplace of golf in Wales and with good reason. This links course is set among a patchwork of rolling greens and wild dunes and is a real test for golfers of all abilities. At the high point of the course on the 17th hole you can catch a sublime glimpse of the coastal waters and Caldey Island beyond.
Only a short distance from its illustrious neighbour at Tenby, Trefloyne is also rather a special. Set in rolling countryside, this course offers views of historic Tenby, Carmarthen Bay and the Ritec Valley – and stands up to any comparison with Tenby Golf Course. The course held its first even PGA event in 2010 and has matured exceptionally, given that it is only just over 20 years old.
Located just a short distance from Pembroke Dock is South Pembrokeshire Golf Club. This course is very popular and has a glowing reputation as one of the region’s best. Originally built as a 9-hole course, it was expanded into a modern 18-hole course but has not lost all its charm and character and the homeward stretch (holes 14 and 15 in particular) are a real test!
With views over the Preseli Hills and beyond, Haverfordwest Golf Club is one for parkland course lovers. It is noted for its superb greens and well-manicured fairways
It may only be a 9-hole course but don’t let that put you off! When played twice it has all the attributes of a superb 18-hole course – and at par 73 it proves that it’s no easy ride! Watch out for the many sand traps and water hazards on this beautiful course.
