An exhilarating course that will enthral you, but also knacker you!! It is played over an undulating tract at over 1000 feet. There are ridges, humps and hollows, ups and downs like you've never experienced before - and that's just hole no 1! Pulling a trolley after a major operation and being a pensioner I need my head examining. There are a variety of challenges from blind shots, long holes, tricky par 3's, a couple of stiff par 4's and a sting in the tail that is really a bit silly for us high handicappers - a 250 yard drive over a cavernous valley and road. Crawling back up the far side - ooh I can feel it now! But the golf is good, and the views (on a clear day) are incredible - eat your heart out Pebble Beach! Cheap and really cheerful with a welcoming clubhouse it is really something to be experienced. But perhaps only once without an electric buggy.
An exhilarating if very undulating course. Views are almost unparalleled - eat your heart out Pebble Beach! You feel as if you are on top of the world with high hills all around. The course has some steep climbs and descents, as well as being not flat almost everywhere else. Blind shots, lovely greens, no bunkers, little rough, and some decent sub-400 yard holes. Wind blows often so course does appear dry in wet tosh weather. Nice clubhouse, but 18th is a killer at the end! and this after the 1st which also kills you! A real test of shotmaking but even enjoyable to the semi useless recovering from a major operation!
I've played Llandrindod a few times. Always a pleasure to visit. The course is hill top heathland, a bit like links with inclines! Some lovely holes cross the hills. Its a long walk to the far reaches of the course. The first is a steep climb but after that its far from tortuous. The course is fairly weatherproof with nice greens and excellent fairway turf. You are high up and exposed though so it is colder, wetter or windier than you might expect from down in the valley. On a glorious day it cannot be beaten. the Views are quite majestic, the golf challenging and the club house is friendly and with good catering. Watch out for their deals - very good value.
Great Course, love it! You just have to read below to see why, and what's more since most of these reports were written they have built new changing rooms, and a flood lit driving range. Mind you, you don't go to a course like this for the amenities, you go for the great golf in a truly spectacular location!
We played here as a society in June 2005. It may be high up the mountain but we all walked the 36 holes, which proves that it is not a difficult walk. We had some cloud and sunshine but I would imagine that it could be bleak in bad weather. We found the course a good challenge with a good variety of holes. Greens were in excellent condition. Warm friendly welcome with excellent food. Excellent value for money. So if you are in the area play it, if you are looking for a good society day book.
After playing the course i can confrm that the biggest challenge is the elements. I played in mid June on a greyish day. The course is a few miles out of town but high up, and after the first tee I was in the clouds in a sort of driving drizzle. Thr first tee sets the scene, being a drive up a mountain, the remainder is, I was told, very scenic. The final hole requires a drive across the valley and public road. All in, very enjoyable. The club is celebrating 100 years and the new changing rooms are a credit to the club. Food also good value. A round mid week was £21 - again good value.
Played this course on 20th August. It was in splendid condition and all the staff were very friendly. Played the last 7 holes in driving rain I have never experienced before, and this is a testament to the enjoyment the course gave us. Anywhere else and I'd have been in the bar long before the 18th. Can see why one reporter below travels from Sussex to play here. Off the beaten track, so it's not too busy. Fantastic value, 2F1 or no 2F1. A real gem !
Interesting course, in good condition if a trifle rustic. Course planner bought from pro-shop is rather minimalist.
Wow!!Played the course 3 times this year in various open comps & travelled from Sussex to do so!! 'nuff said! Great Course (On a hill but easy walking), Friendly members & bar staff, lovely food& the best greens I have played this year. Value? £22 for 36holes on the open weekend, I should say so!!!
What a great experience. Played the course in February 2003 on a very, very very cold day. I have never had water freezing on my clubfaces before!! All things considered the course was in incredibly good condition, only a couple of temporary tees and all the normal greens in play. Views superb, welcome very friendly. Having a blind par 3 (NO 17) u have never seen before was an experience as well!
Fantastic condition,fantastic value for money,fantastic scenery,fantastic hospitality.a must for any keen golfer visiting the area.have played all the other courses in 1 hours drive radius and none of them come close.must be played.
We had the pleasure of playing Llandrindrod Wells on 26 August '01 and thoroughly enjoyed the outing. The walk is not for the faint-hearted (but the views are magnificent), and there are a number of blind shots. However, the course was in excellent condition with greens true and fast and there are no bunkers! Great scenery, a tricky but well designed course in very good condition - all in all, a great day of golf.
We went on a winter special in November just after the deluge. Most courses were closed or on winter greens but Llandrindod was open for business on the best greens we could of imagined.What is more it cost us £12.00 which included a bacon butty and coffee followed by the golf and then a steak pie and chips to finish. We had a great day. The course had some very good holes. It was not arduuous and we played in pretty severe wind but it did not spoil our enjoyment. It is not a manicured sterile course like so many we see today. Instead it was like golf was meant to be played with natural lines outlined by the great designers Varden and then Braid. Do try this course, it was a great joy, especially as my partner and I took the money!
Bring your periscope with you. Most of the holes are blind, either from the tee or approach. The turf on the fairways is brilliant but the greens are less good, being rather slow and flat. Only two par five problems, Holes 14 and 15. Do not attempt to play if the weather is bad as most of the course is above 900 feet a.b.s. But if you want the challenge of a beautiful hill course, with the chance of having the course entirely to yourself, then LLW. is the place to go.
