A genuine surprise when I stumbled across it last spring. Milford Haven is packed with variety and interest both on and off the course. A hidden Welsh Gem.

“Thank you to @milfordhavengolfclub for looking after us today. Opening the 18th hole. @oil4wales #golf”

Scott Quinnell

A real gem of a golf course and a very friendly welcome too. The course makes great use of the topography, thoughtfully designed and challenging even for lower handicaps. Quite a few holes where course knowledge a definite advantage. Highly recommend a visit.

Excellent golf course with great practice facilities, the course was in brilliant condition and the new 18th hole is a great closing hole. The pro Elliott, Bar and club members are friendly before and after your round. Food and beers are excellent value with the food being great quality. We had Sunday lunch the 3 courses were fantastic, piping hot and full of flavour. We will be returning and recommending to friends.
