Golf

Monmouthshire has one of the highest number of golf clubs per head of population in the whole of the UK and Usk is within easy reach of a number of courses, both nationally-known and local. The 2010 Ryder Cup venue of the Celtic Manor Resort is only 15 minutes away; the highly regarded Rolls of Monmouth (Hendre) and St Pierre courses are not much further. Woodlake Park and Raglan are all very nearby. With several other courses within easy travelling, Usk is a perfect base for a golfing holiday.

Gliding

Usk Gliding Club 

If you look upwards on a warm summer day, you may see a strangely silent small aircraft overhead. This will contain a member of the Gliding Club, which is to be found about a mile from Usk, off the old Chepstow road. Trial flights are possible either early or late in the day when the club is not too busy (usually Thurs, Sat, Sun) to 2,500ft (£95) or 5,000 (£165).

Sailing

Llandegfedd Sailing Club 

Llandegveth Reservoir is a venue for water sports. Don’t let the word Reservoir put you off - this is a most beautiful lake in the hills to the west of Usk. Here are commercial wind surfing operations as well as the Sailing Club which offers lessons to beginners – these get booked up early in the season. Membership is very reasonable, and the club’s own sailing boats are available to more experienced members.
