Ffos Las racing 'boosts golf too,' club boss says

Ffos Las race course in Carmarthenshire is celebrating its fifth anniversary with a special race meeting.

Over the five years, the grim landscape of a former opencast coal site has been transformed into a major sport and tourism asset.

Radio Wales reporter Gilbert John, who was there on the day it opened, heard from Martin Lane, managing director of Glyn Abbey Golf Club which is close to Ffos Las.

Mr Lane said the racecourse had helped boost his trade over the years by attracting racegoers and golf players from Ireland.
