Brecon Beacons Golf Guide

Did you know Wales’ first Senior Open Championship will be held at Royal Porthcawl Golf Club in Bridgend next week?

We’re very proud to host such a huge sporting event in our country and it seems we’ve all caught the golf bug!

If you fancy clutching your club and potting a few in the Brecon Beacons, the historic Brecon Golf Club is a 6122 yards par 70 course. On Newton Farm, this quiet part of the national park means you can concentrate on scoring a hole-in-one, and visitors are welcome to borrow clubs for free!

A good mix of holes is provided which guarantees enjoyment for all golfers and a stern test for those who want to better their handicap. The majority of the course is flat, giving easy walking and good lies.

The course is located between two sides of rivers which means good quality soil to play off – and the mountain views aren’t bad either!

If you are new to Brecon Golf Club they have a special trial members offer of golf for only £5 a week!

They do not allocate tee times, however it is wise to phone beforehand to ensure that the course is not busy: 01874 622004 or
