- Scotland's Golf Coast launches inaugural 'Saltire Trophy'
Scotland's Golf Coast is delighted to announce the launch of its inaugural 'Saltire Trophy'. Open to all amateur golfers, this 72 hole Stableford tournament will be played over four inspiring links courses offering players the opportunity to extend their golf into the Autumn months in one of the finest golfing destinations in the world.
- FEATURE 4025 - The start of our North Wales Tour - THE WONDER OF NORTH WALES - PORTHMADOG
There are four elements which are common to this very special little corner of the United Kingdom, beautiful scenery, historic castles, steam railways and of course spectacular golf courses. Each is evidenced in abundant quantities, and the combination is particularly evident on the first stop of our tour. Porthmadog Golf Club is just out of the town, on the road to Black Rock Sands, not far from Portmerion, the Clough Williams Ellis designed Italianate village where The Prisoner was filmed..
- Feature 4026 - ROYAL TOWN OF CAERNARFON GOLF CLUB
The Town of Caernarfon can boast the world famous castle (a World Heritage site) at the apex of the River Seiont and the Menai Strait, the terminus of the Welsh Highland Steam Railway running to Porthmadog, a beautiful scenic location and a fine golf course.
- Feature No 4027 - DARWIN AND ABERDOVEY
The coastline of Wales is dotted with wonderful links courses, North, West and South, land perfectly suited and then sculpted by the hands of the great course architects, Harry Colt, James Braid and Henry Fowler, but only one has the hand of all three maestros impacted on the same course, that is Aberdovey.
- No 4028 - PANORAMIC ABERYSTWYTH
Golfing literature is littered with phrases that convey the special nature of golf courses, and the link with nature and the countryside. The words 'A Hidden Gem' convey that something special that is not so well known to the playing community, indeed it has become a recognised with rankings of such courses in the press and literature.
- And to finish with - No 4029 - BORTH & YNYSLAS
The final port of call on our Welsh Tour was to be another classic links set alongside the seashore, at the mercy of the wind and the waves, and prone to punishment by both. The winter of 2014 was particularly cruel to the club, four times in a very short period it was deluged by seawater and stones. The tales of the events are hard to believe but staggeringly true, boulders tossed like corks by the raging tides. Several times in the history of the club catastrophe had struck in like manner.
- MOUNT FALCON - Feature 4020
Travelling to Ireland for sport is nothing unusual, whatever your sport may be, for my sins I am addicted to golf, game fishing, shooting, and indeed the love of nature and the countryside. That being said, Ireland can be paradise, all you need is a little luck with the weather to make it so. Even if the weather gods are not smiling, you will still have a great time.
