If you want to try something completely different to flat, manicured parkland courses, then why not try the course at Knighton Golf Club. Located in Wales, but on the border with England, our 9 hole course was designed in 1913 by Harry Vardon, the famous six times British Open Winner and USA Open Winner. The course follows the upland contours around Ffrydd Wood and the embraces the Offas Dyke Path, overlooking the town of Knighton and the English and Welsh marches.
Test your golfing skills on a golf course that changes completely with each hole encompassing uphill and downhill lies. The word ‘character’ easily springs to mind when you think of Knighton. The signature 8th hole (Par 5) incorporating the renowned Offas Dyke, and the dog-leg 2nd hole (Par 4) are such examples. During your round you may even be accompanied by a few upland sheep and low flying Red Kites.
The course is not long but it is demanding and it does not easily give up its par. Knighton is a thoroughly enjoyable golf course and the views are stunning from every direction. Enjoy your round and finish up with a sociable drink in the friendly club house.
