Why stay here ...

Why not stay at Glyn Abbey Golf Club with your own caravan or motorhome? You don’t have to be a golfer. You might wish to stay down to watch the racing at Ffos Las Racecourse just across the road or to enjoy the local walks, cycling, fishing or just the beauty and peace of the Gwendraeth Valley. There is a network of footpaths through the golf course, so you can enjoy the beauty of our course whether you play or not.

Pembrey Country Park and Cefn Sidan beach, both multiple award winners, are just 5 miles away. Easily reached by car or bike, these make great days out for the family. Why not visit the town of Kidwelly and it's Castle, just 4 miles away? Carmarthen, the oldest town in Wales, can be reached in 20 minutes. Of course with everything available at Glyn Abbey you may just wish to stay on site! Our parkland course, with mature woodland and fabulous countryside views, is truly beautiful and you are able to walk all around it. There is also a footpath along the old mineral railway running along the bottom of the Course that stretches from Pontnewydd to Pontyates.

There are 5 pitches on the Fforest Fach site, just steps away from all the facilities of the Clubhouse, but in a quiet, secluded area surrounded by mature trees.

Fforest Fach is immediately below our 9 hole pitch and putt Course, so perfect for the family to go straight out to use this. If staying with us you can purchase anytime use of this facility for just a few pounds and rent clubs as well, so you can go back and forth as you wish without having to come to reception. Golfers will of course appreciate the 18 hole Abbey Course, designed by Dr Martin Hawtree.

There is a dedicated entrance for the caravan park, which is a very gentle slope designed specifically for caravans. The central roadway is 5 metres wide to make parking easy, and each bay is a minimum 10 metres long and 12 metres wide, half hard standing and half grass, so the largest units can be easily accommodated together with any awnings and even your car – or you could leave it in the car park just a few steps away.

Every pitch has its own electric hook up naturally, and there is a dedicated water supply and chemical disposal point. Users are welcome to use the toilet and shower facilities in the main clubhouse at any time during our normal opening hours.

Enjoy a pint of real ale in our bar or on the patio overlooking the course. Sundays are just made for our Chef Carol's spectacular carvery.

With an 18 hole golf course, a 9 hole pitch and putt course, a driving range, a fantastically well equipped gym, a bar (with free wifi) and a great restaurant all on site, there is plenty on offer for the whole family.

Not what it says on the tin

Glyn Abbey Golf Club
Handbook says exclusive loos and showers. Not so. Only facilities are in the clubhouse and only accessible when it is open. Whilst mens can be acccessed from outside (when door unlocked), ladies is only accessible through the bar which was a bit unnerving when they were all gathering for their daily round. Whilst ladies had shower cubicles (2 of) with shower curtains, the mens were communal showers. Only water we saw was by right by the chemical disposal and not that keen to use that for van when also used to wash elson out. Staff were ok but would not stay here again or recommend anyone else to stay unless of course you want a round of golf and they let outsiders play (we don't so didn't ask). PItches were dead grass - not quite sure why.

Little gem of a campsite

Glyn Abbey Golf Club
We loved it here! The site itself is ok, nothing fancy but everything you need. It was lovely and quiet at night, just us and an owl. The welcome from staff and members of the golf club was tremendous, within 5 minutes it felt like we had lived there forever. The beer was good and the Sunday lunch was outstanding. We'll definitely be back to stay again.

Urgent club review needed!

Glyn Abbey Golf Club
By far the WORST CL site we have been on! Checked in by a man in the club house who when asked for a reciept had a tantrum and threw his pen across the bar because he couldn't find one that worked . £18 a night for a muddy overgrown dangerous dirty site .. Hard standing it says well that's if you can find it the site is so overgrown and neglected . Water and toilet waste area's filthy! No bin on site. The only light on site above the fresh water and waste not working. Dog mess not picked up. The drive up to the site is not great and their is a path from the site to the club house where a trench has been dug with no warning signs for health and safety to be seen (accident waiting to happen) Toilet and shower you have to go through the club house to get too , I was told there was a separate door but was soon put right by the kitchen staff that there wasn't. We stayed booked for 4 days asked to pay in advance on the phone now we know why , we stayed 2 days and left.

Definitely not “Paradise in Wales”

Glyn Abbey Golf Club
We are leaving this site today (a day early due to weather warnings) the site is a totally neglected disgrace. The review left on 5/10/21 can not possibly be true as the 9 hole pitch and putt that was supposedly played on in that review is totally overgrown and I very much doubt that it’s been open all year. The only communications with staff was when we arrived and we called the “duty manager” to complain as the only vacant pitch electrics where being used by a resident staying as the 6th pitch so you where expected to share electrics via a splitter. He only told us lie after lie. If we hadn’t of had to pay in full for the pitch back in March we would have definitely turned around and left! I would recommend anybody not to visit this site.

Paradise in Wales

Glyn Abbey Golf Club
We always try to stay on CL sights, always quiet and peaceful. My wife encouraged me to look for a CL near a golf course, my hobby since retiring, and although we were heading to Scotland a slight detour to South Wales looked appropriate. Having booked in advance for 2 nights our plans changed and after a call to Glyn Abbey we were able to book an extra night at very short notice. On arrival we were greeted with smiles and nothing was too much trouble, we were shown our pitch and soon settled in, leaving time for 9 holes on the first day. The course is immaculate, all of the staff seem to take great pride in their work and nothing was too much trouble. I was able to fit in 4 more rounds of 18 holes, with the aid of a buggy which my wife faultlessly drove, enabling me to enjoy the game. All in all this is a first class CL and we will be back! Thank you to all the management and staff for making the start of our holiday so special.
