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.
Its history has been somewhat turbulent. In 1924, the new layout opened, offering the full complement of 18 holes over a course measuring 6172 yards in length. However, it was not to be - in 1940, the Air Ministry requisitioned more than a third of the land in order to help the war effort.
This means that little that is left is original; but that’s not to its detriment. It’s regarded as one of the better experiences in all North Wales, with a few particularly challenging holes with which you can put your skills to the test. The hardest would have to be the 7th, a par four that measures 433 yards. You have to follow curves of the valley while avoiding the imposingly large sand trap - it’s not easy but it makes for a great game of golf!
The Wrexham Golf Club is found just off the A534, near to the village of Borras near Wrexham.

Clays Golf Club - found on the Bryn Estate Road in Wrexham - offers up a perfect level of challenge for novice and veteran golfers alike.
