”Dramatic scenery and a friendly club”
Founded in 1930, Palleg Golf Course and Swansea Valley Golf Course stretches to 5,902 yards with a par of 72. The course is surrounded by beautiful mountain scenery deep in the heart of the Swansea Valley. The picturesque views are a wonderful backdrop for your game of golf.
The course has a wide variety of challenges, including long par fours, shorter par threes and par fives to test your patience to the limit. Most of the holes have nice wide fairways and the greens a very well kept. The course offer a nice mix of holes, from the 1st which is a very long 460 yard Par 5 with a slight dog-leg to the shortest which is a 145 yard Par 3. The signature hole (Little Mario) is sure to pose a challenge; although only a very short par 3, the green is extremely small and water comes into play in the form of a large pond. The course is an extremely dramatic one, with a major tree-covered gully running through the centre of the course. Five holes cross over the gully.
Palleg is a friendly club and one well worth visiting on a trip to South Wales. A warm welcome and stunning views awaits you on this challenging meadowland course. Everybody welcome, open to the public 7 days a week.
