Henllys Golf Club offers much enjoyment for North Wales visitors
Winter is now almost over, so with spring just around the corner, now could be the perfect time to consider the enticing golf breaks in Wales that are available.
North Wales in particular is home to a selection of tremendous courses, which cater for experienced players and newcomers alike, while the beautiful local scenery makes for an unforgettable environment for the game.
Henllys Golf Club is one facility that will especially appeal to visitors, offering an 18-hole par 71 course that is situated in mature parkland, surrounding the fabled Henllys Hall.
At 15 years old, the ground is maturing well and benefits from an array of natural features, including streams and ponds, which will ensure that it presents a challenge for golfers of differing capabilities.
In addition, the course is set in an elevated position, making it easy for visitors to glare at unrivalled views of the stunning local countryside, as well as the wonderful mountains of Snowdonia.
Included in the site is a pro shop, where people can choose from a fantastic selection of golfing equipment and clothing, meaning that players can treat themselves to a new club, or simply pick up a keepsake to remember their trip to the tremendous region.
Henllys Golf Club is one of many of its kind in North Wales, so visitors may want to conduct research to ensure that it is adequate for their needs.
One of the best ways of doing this is by speaking to fellow players, as a survey from Reed Travel Exhibitions has found that 70 per cent of golfers cite "word of mouth" as the most influential factor when it comes to picking a golf holiday.
Other resources commonly used were magazines (43 per cent), professional recommendations (42 per cent) and online blogs and course reviews (35 per cent).
