Penrhos Park Overview | NCG Top 100s: GB&I Golf Resorts

27 Holes of Golf

Like the majority of the venues on the NCG Top 100s: GB&I Golf Resorts list, Penrhos Park is blessed to have two golf courses. The Welsh venue plays host to the 18-hole Championship Course and the 9-hole Red Kite Course.  
 
Championship Course 
Designed by David Williams, one of the leading British golf course architects of his generation, and the course makes the most of the spectacular scenery of Cardigan Bay, with the course just a couple of miles from the coastline. The Par 72 layout pushes over 6,600 yards from the back tees and offers up a range of holes and challenges for golfers to enjoy. 
 
It is a tough start to a round at Penrhos. The opener is a par 4 that measures almost 430 yards, and with water behind the green, while the 2nd is the hardest hole on the property. It is a narrow driving hole, and one that gets tighter the further down you hit your drive. The 3rd is the first of the four par 3s on the course. 4 is a quirky dog-leg par 5. It is only 430 yards as the crow flies, but because of the sharp turn in the fairway, it is on the card at more than 500 yards.  
 
Water reappears on the right side of the 6th hole and 9th hole, with the latter being a good birdie opportunity at just 325 yards. 11 is more than 200 yards from the tips, the longest par 3 at Penrhos. The 12th follows, the longest hole on the property at more than 565 yards. Get through that and you’re then faced with a trio of tricky par 4s, ahead of the signature 17th. The par 3 plays severely downhill and is much shorter than the carded 170 yards. The closing hole at Penrhos Park has a small water hazard on the right of the landing zone, and then runs across the fairway, just to make you think one last time as you come to the conclusion of your round.  
 
Red Kite Course 
The Red Kite Course is the 9-hole offering at Penrhos Park. There is a mixture of par 3 and par 4 holes on the Red Kite Course, and it is the perfect place for experienced golfers to warm up ahead of taking on the Championship Course. It also offers a suitable course for beginners to the game to learn about the nuances of golf, including the short game and course management. 

Cabins, Lodges, Rooms and Caravans

It’s safe to say that the variety of accommodation on offer at Penrhos Park is wide-ranging... 
 
The hotel has a range of rooms on offer – in Twin, Double, Family and Accessible forms. The Double and Twin Rooms are the same, just with the option of which bed type is equipped, while the Family Rooms have a double bed, single bed and sofa bed to accommodate the entire brood. The Accessible Rooms can come with either double or twin beds and come equipped with an en-suite wet room to make bathing easier for those that require adaptations.  
 
Away from the hotel building, the Welsh venue has a wide variety of cabins, caravans and lodges for guests to rent out for the duration of their stay. They come in a range of two- and three-bedroom options, with several of the log cabins coming with their own private spa pool for guests to relax and unwind. The caravans offer another way to enjoy a self-catering trip to Mid-Wales, also coming with either two or three bedrooms.  

Health & Leisure

Golf is not the only thing to do during your time at Penrhos Park, with plenty of leisure activities available at the Welsh resort. There are tennis courts on site, along with a health and leisure club which includes a gym and spa. 
 
The gym is fully equipped, with a wide range of cardiovascular, elliptical and resistance machines, along with a range of free weights. For those that enjoy swimming, there is a heated indoor pool, which also doubles up as part of the spa facilities. A sauna and steam room add to the amenities available to guests and members of the venue.
