* Llandrindod Wells Golf Club
Located just half a mile from the Metropole Hotel in Llandrindod Wells, in the heart of picturesque Mid Wales. The course offers unrivalled views over the town from which it takes its name.
Inaugurated in 1907 with a match between Vardon, James Braid and the legendary J H Taylor, this Club undoubtedly has an impeccable ancestry. Host club from 1954 to 1961 to the Welsh Boys' Championships and from 2000 to the present time to the Welsh Golfing Union's Individual Handicap Championship this mature and traditional course offers memorable golf and a warm welcome to all visitors.
One of the major achievements for the Club has been its nomination as winner in the Welsh Golfing Union/Towergate Leisure Welsh Golf Club of The Year 2004.
Perhaps best described as an "Upland Links" course, it provides a true test for golfers of all abilities. Lush upland turf on which the ball sits up invitingly, turf banks and natural hazards, with well protected true greens, rated amongst the best in Wales, it offers the chance to play links type golf amongst the rolling hills. By the standards of today, the course is not long but do not be lulled into thinking that it is a push over; against a par of 69 the course record still stands at only 65.
An eight bay floodlit driving range has been constructed on land adjacent to the first fairway and offers an ideal place to warm up before you step onto the first tee or to practice your swing and perfect your game. Golf Tuition is also available.
The soft sweeping hills of the Welsh Marches over whose dimpled heights soft blue and purple shadows make such a play on a sunny day, chasing one another as it seems from ridge to ridge, and causing even the least susceptible lover of nature on the golf course to pause and admire. Whilst to the west across from the Atlantic, come health-giving breezes sweetly tempered by their race across the intervening mountains. Gorse, heather and bracken clothe the ground around, and in their season wild thyme and little yellow mountain pansy, but throughout the fairways and on the greens, is beautiful short mountain turf, soft and resilient, the result of years of toil and the art of the greenkeeper and a pleasure on which to play.
