Where to play
There are many places you can play golf in Wales and many facilities that are ideal to start the game.
There are over 150 courses in Wales affiliated to the Golf Union of Wales and around 200 golf facilities.
Courses are usually 18-holes long, but there are also many nine-hole layouts or some even smaller, shorter layouts.
Par three courses - These are short courses where the aim is to take three shots on each hole. They’re ideal for the beginner and improver.
Pitch and putt - These are even shorter courses and also perfect for the beginner
Driving ranges - The place to hone your technique. Buy a bucket of balls, head for a bay and practice what you've been taught
Junior Club Accreditation Clubs - These facilities have reached the national standard accreditation award for developing Junior Golf in Wales www.golfdevelopmentwalesorgnew.creo.co.uk/junior-golf-cert-clubs/

The Ryder Cup Legacy Fund facilities - The RCW legacy fund project was created to ensure that the staging of the Ryder Cup in Wales impacted on the whole of the nation, not just during the event, but for years to come. A £2 million commitment from the Welsh Assembly Government provided a huge opportunity to boost the development of the game in Wales.
40 facilities were funded to develop and create specific beginner facilities which could be used to introduce people to the game.
