The Welsh Border Golf Club Complex is located east of Welshpool near the beautiful Breidden Hills and includes a par 70 18-hole Competition Course and a par 30 9-hole Academy Course.
Welshpool Golf Club is an 18-hole golf course located on the Golfa hilltops outside of Welshpool with breathtaking scenery like and provides year round play with no temporary greens during the winter months.
