GOLFING SNOWDONIA STYLE...



The girls in town have taken up golf at the Royal St David's Golf Course in Harlech. I have to say, it is not a sport that has ever really 'spoken' to me, however, having turned down the opportunity to join the group, when the photo came through of Freya's 'golfing shoes' alongside the neon coloured golf balls, I decided I was missing out on golfing Snowdonia Style...


I don't think I will ever become a die-hard golfer completing 18 holes - I wouldn't be able to stand up to that amount of concentration - but for any one that likes golf, then Snowdonia has an incredible offering with 7 courses available; that's a week of unadulterated golf on some of the most beautiful courses in the world...
