Course Overview

Neath is a classic James Braid design taking advantage of the natural landscape to create a superb golfing challenge. The heathland course incorporates trees, heather, gorse, dry stone walls and fine undulating greens to test every asset a player has. The turf is perfect for a golf course offering firm fairways and greens.

Set on a plateau above the Neath Valley the elements change the playing characteristics of the course daily. The course regularly changes direction using the wind as a defence with the course design testing strategy and accuracy.

The fifteenth hole is one of the famous holes in South Wales. A 391 yard par 4, it is played from one side of a huge rock down to a fairway some 80 feet below with far reaching views into the distance. The tee shot is driving into pure sky.

The finest of all heathland courses in South Wales, it offers a stern challenge from the championship tees. The record is 66 set by Andrew Cooper in 1993.

From the standard tees it offers golfers of all standards the opportunity of playing a truly great course with dramatic panorama of the surrounding mountains and coastline.
