About St Giles
A charming nine-hole course situated alongside the River Severn in the heart of Wales.
The 6012-yard course is a challenging par 70 parkland style course conveniently situated between the A483 road and the River Severn on the outskirts of the Mid Wales market town of Newtown.
The club was founded in 1895 and spent the first 13 years of its life at the Bryn on the outskirts of the town before moving to its current location in 1908. Since its inception the course layout has changed three times growing and making better use of the terrain. In 1911 Harry Vardon, who was advising Llandrindod Wells Golf Club, visited St Giles and gave his expert opinion on the proposed extension to the course.
Today the course uses the natural contours of the land to provide a challenging golfing experience rising and falling towards the River Severn, which borders the course and comes into play on three holes.
