    Knighton Golf Club

    If you enjoy golf courses that are full of character, have uphill and downhill lies and offer some of the most spectacular views you are ever likely to see on a golf course, then you will not do better than the nine-hole course at Knighton in mid-Wales. The golf course isn’t long, but it is demanding and it does not give up its par easily.
