Golf on Gower Golf Breaks - Dragon Hotel, Swansea, South Wales

Golf on Gower is a group of quality clubs and hotels in a compact cluster offering golf breaks in Britain’s first “Area of Outstanding natural beauty”. Its no surprise that dramatic views over coast and rural landscape are in abundance with a mix of Links, heath and parkland courses within just a few miles of each other. All offer challenging Par 71 /72 courses and measure over 6000 yds.

Accommodation included is based in either the 4 star city centre ‘Dragon Hotel’ with all its added attractions.

Dragon Hotel

The Dragon Hotel is Swansea’s premier 4-star, hotel located in the heart of the city centre. Over £3.5 million has been spent on this top Swansea hotel to offer guests excellent hotel accommodation, superb leisure facilities and free on-site parking (subject to availability) in the heart of Swansea . The Hotel also has an award winning Brasserie restaurant, an excellent bar and a wide range of leisure facilities including a gymnasium and 18m heated swimming pool.

18 Holes at Fairwood Golf Course

At 6,700 yards Fairwood Park is the longest and fl attest golf course on Gower and is also the only club in the Swansea area to have hosted Welsh PGA Championship events. There’s a bewildering array of trees that line this rolling Par 73 course, continually lying in wait to punish the wayward tee shot, not forgetting a plethora of lakes and strategically placed bunkers. Buggy hire is available at this Hawtree designed course, which was founded in 1969.

18 Holes at Clyne Golf Course

The course consists of two separate loops of 9 holes - virtually a figure of 8 - with the result that there is no crossing and a minimum of congestion. The course offers a challenging test of golf to all handicap levels and stands at 6,323 yards with a par 70/sss 72, offering wonderful views over Swansea Bay and the Bristol Channel. The course was designed by Messrs H.S.Colt & Harries, and the club was founded in 1921

18 Holes at Pennard Golf Course

Golf has been played at Pennard since 1896, although today’s Par 71 / 6,225 yard course owes most of its appeal first to James Braid and then to C.K. Cotton. The holes are routed over classically undulating and tumbling linksland, full of hummocks, hillocks, and hollows, and pocked with dunes large and small. The course is often referred to as ‘The Links in the Sky’, as it lies 200 feet high above the shore.

18 Holes at Gower Golf Course

The Gower Golf Club was designed by the highly respected Donald Steel, whose 18 hole layout threads its way through rolling terrain to create a spectacular challenge offering dramatic vistas from several vantage points that look out over the SouthWales landscape. Opened in 1997 the Par71 course stands at 6441yds and has swiftly
established itself among the golfi ng elite in the area.

Langland Bay Golf Club

Formed in 1904, Langland Bay Golf Club is ideally located over lush meadowland across sprawling clifftops. Standard Scratch Score rates Langland Bay at 70, but as a true links course the elements can add their own challenges. Correct club selection is vital with compact greens guarded well from every angle. Come sunshine or rain, birdies at Langland are there to be savoured by golfers willing to challenge and respect the course in equal measure.

Thank you for organising our golfing holiday on the Gower Peninsula. All three courses were excellent, the Dragon hotel in Swansea was very good value and everything went smoothly. We certainly felt it was well worth booking the holiday through The Wales Golf Holiday Company and we look forward to returning next year.
