Wales is a land of mountains and valleys. From Conwy in North Wales, with its ancient castle built in the late 13th century by Edward I, to the Brecon Beacons, now a National Park, in the south, the scenery can be glorious.
Dramatic castles such as Caernarfon, Penrhyn and Beaumaris stand witness to an often troubled past, while Portmeirion, a romantic Italianate village created in more modern times by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, is just one pleasant surprise among many awaiting the visitor to Wales.
Golfing vacations in Wales can take in all of the best courses, complemented by a selection of superb hotels and inns. Royal Porthcawl in South Wales is the most famous course in the country. Royal St David's is by common consent the best course in North Wales - a classic links dominated by the mountain peaks of Snowdonia. Other fine courses include Conwy, Southerndown and Nefyn.
Wales and The Celtic Manor Resort will host the much anticipated 2010 Ryder Cup. The contest will be played on the brand new Twenty Ten Course, built specifically for golf's greatest team event.
