Wrexham Golf Club Review | NCG Top 100s: Wales

The course at Wrexham Golf Club has the backdrop of the rolling Welsh hills and plays well throughout the year. The course is one of the shortest you will find on the NCG Top 100s: Wales list, coming in at just 6,100 yards. The Par 70 course is split into a long front nine and a short back nine, with the closing side of the course being 500 yards shorter than the first half.  
The opening hole at Wrexham is one of just three par 5s on the course, and the second longest hole. It is 515 yards from the tips and can be reachable in two for the longer hitters. 2 and 3 are strong par 4s by the course’s boundary with the nearby quarry. The 4th is the shortest hole on the course, and the first of five par 3s at Wrexham. The 8th is the other on the front nine, with just a single bunker on the right side of the green.  
6 is the longest hole on the property, but at less than 520 yards, the longer hitters will still be looking to try and reach the green in two. There is a split fairway, which may put some people off from going for it. The closing hole on the front side is a shorter par 4, with five greenside bunkers ready to catch any errant shots. Around the turns, there are birdie opportunities, with the par 3 10th and the dog-leg par 4 11th. 12 is the last par 5 and at less than 500 yards, it is one that will certainly be eyed up by the bigger hitters.  
13, 15 and 16 are short par 4s and provide birdie opportunities, while the 14th and 17th are the last two par 3s on the course. The penultimate hole on the course is the longest par 3 at Wrexham, measuring almost 190 yards from the back tees. Bunkers either side of the green are ready for anything errant. Wrexham’s closing hole is a dog-leg left and the longest par 4 on the closing nine. It is a tough finishing hole, and one where a par is a great score to walk off with.
