Builth Wells Golf Club is located close to the small market town from which it takes its name. Historically, the site that the golf course now occupies is of great historical importance as it’s said to be where the three thousand-strong army of Llewelyn ap Gruffydd, the last native Prince of Wales, was ambushed as it crossed the River Irfon to reach Builth Castle in 1286.

The club was formed in 1923, with a 9-hole course brought into play. The layout was doubled in size in 1986 when nine new holes were constructed, seven of which now lie on land to the west of the River Chwefri. These holes are somewhat different to those on the original course, bringing natural features such as the river and woodland areas into sharp focus.

With no par fives and six par threes on the scorecard, Builth Wells measures a mere 5,420 yards, playing to a par of 66. The 344-yard 10th is regarded as the signature hole here and twice the river crosses its fairway, the first time immediately in front of the tee box then again in front of the green. Big hitters may decide to go for it with their driver but smart golfers will usually profit from a more conservative approach.
