This underrated destination once again demonstrates incredible strength in depth as the ranking gets increasingly competitive.

When it comes to naming the very best golf courses in Great Britain and Ireland, some illustrious names instantly spring to mind – the likes of St Andrews, Gleneagles, Turnberry, Muirfield, Ballybunion, Portrush, Royal County Down, Royal Birkdale, Lytham and Sunningdale, to name but a few.

However, for some strange reason, the very best golf courses in Wales don’t roll off the tongue with quite the same level of ease and fluidity. Which is unfortunate because, if there’s anything that the research we have conducted during the past few months in compiling this new Top 50 has shown us, it’s that there is incredible depth and variety in Welsh golf. Many of the world’s most iconic golf course architects, including James Braid, Harry Colt, Tom Simpson and Herbert Fowler, have plied their trade across this beautiful country of mountains, valleys and vales.

As with the rankings of England and Scotland’s best golf courses, our new Top 50 Wales takes its lead from our most recent Golf World Top 100 Courses in Great Britain & Ireland ranking.

It is worth remembering that listings like this are highly subjective. Their true purpose is to prompt discussion and to inspire golfers to get out and expand their horizons.
