Padeswood & Buckley Golf Club is found just outside the village of Padeswood in Flintshire, North Wales, not far from the English border. It is a members’ club, snugly nestled between the hills of the Clwydian Range and the picturesque Cheshire Plain, making it a beautiful course in equally beautiful surroundings.
The 18 hole course measures 6809 yards in length, making it a rather sizable course, and offers a par of 72. It is a fairly challenging place to play if you’re hoping to meet par, mostly because of all the various water hazards. You can be forced to go for a dip on a whopping eleven holes - the course is bounded by the Afon Alyn, and streams and lakes dot the playing area, so you have to be careful with your shots.
Another challenge comes in the form of the mature trees that line a great many of the fairways, especially so in the first half of the game. These mean that you really have to ensure your accuracy is on top form as you tee off.
The terrain of the course is mostly rather flat so walking the whole course is fairly easy. Buggies are available for you to hire if needed.
Leave the A55 at junction 25, signposted Buckley and Wrexham. Follow signs to Mold. Padeswood and Buckley Golf Club can be found 0.5 miles after Old Padeswood.

Wrexham Golf Club was established in 1906, meaning that it has been entertaining both local golfers and visitors alike for more than a century now. However, the club is not the same now as it was then - originally, it was a mere nine hole affair, and in 1923 the whole club moved, from Stansty to where it now sits, on the north east ridge of Wrexham.
Prestatyn Golf Club is a fine example of North Wales golfing and has been as such for more than a century now, having been founded back in 1905. It has, of course, changed a fair amount over the decades, including losing nine of the original fairways during a large-scale development project in 1921, but has, for the most part, been operating with the full complement of eighteen holes for nearly all of its 110-year history.
Rhyl Golf Club is one of the older clubs in North Wales, having been founded towards the end of the 19th century, becoming one of the founding members of the Welsh Golf Union in 1895. In 1908, the course moved down the road, expanding to include a full complement of 18 holes.
