Course overview

For an unforgettable golfing experience that’s steeped in history, you can’t beat the Old Course at St Pierre Golf Club in Wales. Designed by the legendary Willie Fernie, the Old Course has played host to numerous world-class events since it opened in 1962, making it a must-visit destination for golfers from all over the world.

Over the years, the course has seen multiple upgrades and renovations, all while maintaining its reputation as one of the most challenging and picturesque courses in Wales. The course’s unique layout, with valleys, doglegs, and tree-lined fairways, ensures that every hole is an exciting and demanding test for golfers of all skill levels.

The Old Course has many feature holes that are not to be missed. One such hole is the 10th, a 371-yard par-4 that requires a precise drive down a narrow fairway that’s bordered by trees on both sides. The green is also protected by bunkers, making accuracy key to scoring well. Another standout hole is the 16th, a 476-yard par-5 that demands a long and accurate tee shot to set up a chance for a birdie. The green is guarded by a water hazard, adding to the challenge and beauty of the hole.

And it’s not just the course itself that makes St Pierre such a popular golfing destination. The club boasts not one but two stunning courses to choose from, each with its own character and challenges. But it’s not just the courses that impress at St Pierre—the facilities and hospitality are second to none, ensuring that your stay is a truly memorable one.

And then there’s the history. The Old Course at St Pierre has seen countless iconic moments in golf, from Ian Woosnam’s victory in the 1983 PGA Championship, to the Solheim Cup matches in 1996 and 1998. Walking the same fairways as some of the greatest golfers of all time is a truly humbling experience, and one that you won’t forget in a hurry.

The Old Course is often played as part of a St Pierre Resort stay and play break, however we are pleased to incorporate the course into South Wales and North Bristol golf trips. The course is based just 20 minutes from both and Cardiff.

So, if you’re looking for a golfing experience that combines history, challenge, and world-class amenities, look no further than St Pierre Golf Club.

    Deposits are non-refundable, but they are transferable to a new date or break. We aim to be as flexible as possible and will treat each situation on a case by case basis.

  • Can we make changes to our break?

    Managing a group can be a thankless task and changes to the group leading up to your break are an accepted element. We make changes as stress free as possible (just see our reviews for evidence of this!). Changes can be made up to 6 weeks prior to your break. Some changes are unavoidable so for legitimate reasons we will endeavour to make last minute changes after this period, but as we would have paid our venues at this point, this would be at the discretion of the venue(s) you are visiting.

  • Why book with a tour operator?

    Good question, could you not do this all yourself? The answer is yes you could. You are able to locate the ideal hotel with the accessibility you need to the clubs you plan to play. You could go back and forth with your target venues and line up the tee times.  You could also contact each venue individually to advise them of group number changes and requests during the build up to your trip.

    Alternatively you could;

    – Talk to us about the trip you are planning.

    – Receive quotes for perfectly crafted package meeting your ideal requirements.

    – Secure the booking with small deposits staged in a way to make your life easier as an organiser.

    – Have your funds fully insured and independently held by PTS, our client trust provider.

    – Have changes made to whole tours with just one call or email.

    – Receive exclusive extras such as free places.

    – Pay less with our packages than going direct to venues.

    Why can we do this?

    Quite simply we have spent years (since 2015) forging strong relationships with hotel, golf club and golf resort venues across the South West. We are the expert tour operator for the region and are know for our high quality and personal service to our clients (just see our Google and TrustPilot reviews).

  • Who uses Golf South West?

    The majority of our clients are UK based domestic travellers. We deal with groups of any size, from single travellers and couples, to large golf societies.

    We also are the favoured golf DMC for the South West of England and preferred regional partner of Golf Tourism England. We regularly work with tour operators from Europe, America and elsewhere to provide bespoke tour packages allowing overseas travellers to experience the beautiful West Country.

  • How are package prices displayed on our website?

    Prices on our our website are displayed in two ways. The first is on our Resort pages where pricing tables show the from prices for low, mid and high season golf stay and play package rates at golf resort venues.

    The second is on our example tour package pages. There are often 4 prices shown here, two for low season and two for high season. The struck through price typically shows the highest price the tour can be and is often active over weekends in that season. The offer price is typically a mid week price.

    Every tour quote we offer is bespoke and will vary based on a number of factors including the date, availability, group size, room type, time of day for the tee time, etc… Our package pricing is a guide to the cost of the package and is not a firm price. Please enquire for an exact cost.

    We aim to provide as accurate a price as possible and therefore try to avoid using shoulder/mid season pricing or twilight green fee rates when displaying rates. You may find an intermediate price for breaks in months of April & October at certain venues.

  • Why are golf resort prices the same as elsewhere?

    Put simply, all tour operators work from the same contracted rate card when it comes to stay and play golf resort packages. When it comes to golf tours, that is a different matter, but golf resorts are a level playing field.

    If you find a vastly different price, it’s likely you’ve been misquoted and usually this does come back to bite.

    The question this poses is why book a stay and play golf break with Golf South West if you can book direct or with one of the large operators and receive the same price?

    Benjamin Franklin once said “The bitterness of poor quality remains long after
    the sweetness of low price is forgotten.”

    We have a small team so booking through us means you receive a personal service. You are more than just a number to us, we are a tour operator where you will likely get to deal with the same contact throughout the process, who will get to know you and your group and respond efficiently to your queries.

    We know our venues and the people who work there. This ensures a smooth process from initial enquiry to the end of your stay.

    Financially you have an extra layer of protection as your money is securely stored in an independent trust account and is fully insured when it is released to the venue(s) you are visiting.

    We are fortunate to have some exclusive “extras” with selected venues across the South West. We offer 1 in 16 free on every trip AND run an exclusive voucher scheme for our stay and play client bookings.

    We often feel we add further value to our clients when it comes to our bespoke golf tour packages, but you can rest assured that when making a stay and play golf resort booking, Golf South West will offer you an extremely high level of service, financial protection and may even offer you a saving or an exclusive extra!
