More About This Title Golf in Wales


In 2010, the Ryder Cup is staged in Wales for the first time. Celtic Manor at Newport hosts the prestigious championship. Wales has over 170 golf courses, many in the most beautiful of landscapes, from Anglesey to Monmouthshire, with a series of links courses along the coast of west Wales. Famous Welsh golfers include Ryder Cup players Ian Woosnam and Dai Rees. Trudy and Phil Carradice use a fascinating selection of images to tell the story of the game in Wales through the medium of picture postcards. Showing many of the courses, their club houses and holes, as well as golf humour, the antique postcards complement the history, and show the expansion of golf in Wales and its importance in the tourism and culture of this Celtic nation.
