10 reviews of Welshpool Golf Club
Wow myself and a friend just went to Welshpool for the day, what a course! Very friendly welcome and bacon roll. The course is very high up and hilly with accuracy needed rather than brute force. Every hole is a challenge in its own unique way, although not long, anybody who thinks they are in for an easy game will be sadly mistaken. Well worth playing, definately have a buggy though. Anybody who has played Kington in Herefordshire, think of that then add another few degrees of trickiness in. The 18th is a monster over a HUGE valley but the previous 17 holes are challenging. Will definately go back
One of those "should be experienced" courses. You need to be fit, and carrying is probably preferable over a trolley. Not long, but you need to be pretty accurate off the tee. A number of greens require pinpoint approaches with severe drop offs and rough/gorse surrounding them. Views are breathtaking. Clubhouse is very welcoming. Read the local rules carefully. Sheep fences come into play around most greens. Everybody remembers the 18th as its a peach, but Amen corner (14th) is the toughest par three you'll ever play. Take plenty of balls - in strong winds, fill your pockets as well and plenty of Kendal Mint Cake!! Enjoy.
Aaaah good old Welshpool GC. where crampons,an oxygen bottle, and staight hitting are a pre-requisite.
Tough course, particularly when the wind is up. Some great holes and the scenery is fantastic. Accuracy and course management are important if you want to score well here.
Go play it. I guarantee you'll love the experience.
We try and play here every year just for the fantastic views. We picked a glorious Autumn day and got the most of the spectacular setting. The course itself is somewhat rough and ready with sheep business on many fairways, also the electric fences mean that around the green you may have to play different shots then you would on a normal course. However this is a small price to pay for a course that will stick in your mind for years. The 18th is easily my favourite hole of all time and well worth the visit alone. The staff are also great and helped in all our requests. Bargain price with a 2fore1 voucher and one not to be missed.
Situated on the top of a hill just west of Welshpool, on a clear day this course provides commanding views across miles of the mid Wales countryside. The course is an interesting, fairly short heathland set up that is shared with sheep. There were a lot of sheep droppings over the fairways, but the greens were in immaculate condition all of which are surrounded by electric fences to keep the sheep at bay. It is worth taking time to read the local rules about fences, sheep droppings etc.
Some interesting and challenging holes, the most spectacular being the drive from the 18th tee perched high up above a deep valley.
Society Day held on Sat 25 June. Great value for money at £28 for 27 holes, breakfast, lunch and evening meal.
Course in reasonable condition for type that it is. Greens consistent and in good condition. Some average holes but the 18th is spectacular (driving over a valley). Care must be exercised with rough and gorse on every hole. If you stray off the tee, then you'll be lucky to find it.
Worth hiring a buggy (£15 a round) for those who aren't up to the walk.
Friendly atmosphere in the clubhouse.
What a corker ! Its a cross between hill walking and golf. By the time you get to your ball you need a minute to get your breath. Good layout though and the blind holes are never unfair. The course is not in the best condition but then thats not really what this place is about. Some great holes and fantastic views make this a really fun day out. Those who dare to play here will be rewarded with several tee shots from high tees which seem to hang forever against the majestic views as they drop the 70 or so feet to the fairway below. If you're of good health give this a go - it will make you smile I guarantee. Dont wear soft spikes though or you might end up on your bum on some of the decents (like me). Enjoy !
A great course very tough. If you like fun, excitement,and hill\r\nwalkiing, this is the course for you. If your a nancy do not bother.\r\nThis is what golf is all about, this is real golf.
A superb old established course,not for the faint hearted.Take your courage in both hands,hope for kind weather and do not expect to finish with the ball you started with!! In clear weather the views will stay with you for years to come,do not worry about your score just enjoy it.
