Llandrindod Wells Golf Club

Harry Vardon

Few golf courses have had a champion such as Harry Vardon as their architect. Indeed, Llandrindod Wells golf course was designed not by a winner but by a legend.

Open champion for an unmatched six times and of the US Open once, between 1896 and 1914 he was the leading member of the magical 'Triumvirate' of Vardon, Braid and Taylor who dominated golf in its first age of widening public appeal.

Today he is widely remembered as the greatest advocate (though not inventor) of the Vardon grip and of the Vardon prize awarded by both the European and US professional tours to those with the lowest stroke average over a season.

Llandrindod Wells particularly remembers him as the architect of a delightful upland course that with the railway and the spa made the town a complete late-Victorian and Edwardian polite resort.

In the history of golf Vardon's achievements are best compared to those of Bobby Jones and Jack Nicklaus. Llandrindod Wells may not be Augusta or Muirfield Village, but like them it is a course and a club that matches the peerless character of its creator: elevated, winning and full of charm.

Cradoc – Brecon

18 holes, 71 par, 5843 yards. Parkland.

golfbrecon.jpgCradoc Golf Club is a stunning 18-hole parkland golf course set on the northern side of the Usk valley some 2 miles from the charming town of Brecon in Mid Wales. This Welsh golf course, is the epitome of the phrase "golf as it should be" for the relaxed, friendly and unhurried nature of the game, and was designed by C K Cotton in 1967 to take advantage of the rolling Mid Wales hills and the stunningly beautiful views. 

The golf course is noted for its natural surroundings, including mature tree lined fairways and an occasional water hazard, and gives golfers a challenging, yet entertaining, test of their golf. 

As a point of interest, the third hole, a short par 3 green, has been featured in an advertisement on Sky Television. 

Three of the golf holes, the 7th, 8th and 9th, have recently been remodelled to eliminate a strenuous climb, so that the current 6188 yards off the white tees is a pleasant walk and makes the club an ideal venue for golf society days and golf breaks in South Wales.
