Llandrindod Wells grabs your attention at the very beginning and holds onto it throughout 18 holes of wild and wonderful golfing adventure. Through links like terrain, governed by the fickle elements, your creativity will be tested to the full. No bunkers at Llandrindod, it doesn't really need them, around the greens there are plenty of humps, hollows and grassy knolls that act as adequate substitutes. The constant feature throughout is its spectacular setting. After reaching the first green, the fantastic panoramic views of the Spa town and the surrounding Welsh Hills are more than worth the effort. Very attractive copses of fir trees segment the fairways in places, offering occasional shelter from the wind.

I have just played the Llandrindod Wells Open Week for the 3rd year. Some of the best holes I have played on ANY golf course. Stunning 360 degree panoramic views. Absolute brilliant and memorable finishing hole called "Death or Glory". Modern buggies available to hire if you don't fancy the walk. Very helpful pro and friendly local members. Club house serves good quality food at a very decent price served with a smile. Could not say a bad word about the place. Yes the course can be tough, but in my view one of the most enjoyable golf courses I have played for the views and some spectacular holes.
I played this course in June 2014 in near perfect golfing conditions and I've seldom enjoyed a round as much as I did at LWGC. Every hole in unique and the views will rightly be the envy of most clubs in the country. The team in the clubhouse and proshop were very welcoming and the members are a great bunch offering welcome advice whenever required.
Great course and an excellent challenge. Fantastic views. Clubhouse is well located with views over Llandrindod and surrounding hills. The food was very good and staff friendly. Thoroughly recommended.
Amazing, demanding and exciting course to play with the most spectacular views. The best course I have ever played.
Incredible views throughout the course and in perfect condition. It's obvious why this place wins best kept course in Wales.
An exhilarating course that will enthral 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. 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 aptly named "Death or Glory".The golf is so good, and the views are incredible - eat your heart out Pebble Beach!
