A lot of golfers visit Leadingcourses.com to plan their golf holiday. In Europe most golfers end up going to “the usual suspects”: Spain, Portugal and Turkey. But are those countries actually the best ones to go to when it comes down to quantity, quality and price? Their recent study shows that the answer to that question is a resounding no!
Wales gets you the most bang for your buck!
So where do you get the best quality for the least amount of money, or to rephrase that, where do you get the most bang for your buck? Quite surprisingly the study shows that the country you should be visiting on your next golf holiday is not any of the above mentioned usual suspects, but it is Great Britain’s Wales! Home to the longest official one-word placename in Europe (Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch), Wales offers a staggering 850 miles of raw and rugged coastline, home to world-class links golf. But there’s more than just links golf. Newport’s Celtic Manor Resort, venue of the Ryder Cup in 2010 is just one of around 174 courses (120 of them 18 holes or more) – including some of the world’s top links courses like Royal Porthcawl Golf Club and Royal St. David’s Golf Club – all packed into a country that’s just 60 miles wide and 170 miles long. With an average rating of 7,88 on Leadingcourses.com and an average green fee of a mere € 34,-, Wales absolutely offers the most bang for your buck.
