Course was well set up and in good condition. Only criticism would be the 8th which did look a bit "scruffy". Very picturesque with great views of Brecon Beacons National Park.

A very well kept course, to many 'blind' drives for my liking, will play it again now I know what's round all the corners or dips. Bacon roll was superb and a warm welcome in the club.

Very good course held up well to some very heavy rain. Would recommend a buggy as quite hilly

This course is a mountian course and is very exposed ( I wouldn't want to be playing here in the wind and/or rain!).
The course is in good condition with some quirky holes like the par-4 3rd & 4th which are well designed using the natural terrain to its full.
The greens are true and can be very quick after a dry spell.
Also the views of the Brecon Beacons are outstanding.
