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 today follows much the same routing and design as when it was first laid out by one of the golfing greats: Mr Harry Vardon, the famous six times British Open Winner and USA Open Winner. Save for a few minor changes to the competition Tees, the course follows the same routing and design as when it was first laid out by Harry Varden in 1912 and openened in 1913.

Test your golfing skills on a golf course that changes completely with each hole encompassing uphill and downhill lies. Following the upland contours around Ffrydd Wood, whilst also embracing the famous Offas Dyke path and all the time overlooking the town of Knighton and the English and Welsh marches.The word ‘character’ easily springs to mind when you think of Knighton. The signature 8th hole (Par 5) incorporating the renowned Offas Dykfe, 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.
