Parkdean believes Welsh sites ideal for Ryder Cup

Wales will play host to the Ryder Cup in October

Holidaymakers staying at Parkdean’s Welsh caravan sites over the Fathers’ Day weekend were able to treat their dad to a special sporting spectacle.

The firm noted that the Royal Porthcawl Golf Club was hosting a tournament for some of the best senior golfers in the world.

Celebrating its tenth anniversary, the Ryder Cup Seniors took place from June 18th to 20th.

The event was taking place four months ahead of the Ryder Cup proper, which will also be hosted in Wales.

Ian Woosman and Sam Torrance were among the stars competing for a prize fund of £500,000, with John Bland eventually winning the event.

Parkdean has its Trecco Bay Holiday Park just five minutes from the Royal Porthcawl links course.

It has its own Blue Flag beach and has also benefited from more than £7 million worth of investment in the past two years.

Meanwhile, Parkdean recently noted that Newquay was hosting its Midsummer Night Surf over the weekend to celebrate the longest day of the year.
