Mid Wales encompasses the landlocked county of Powys and this area of 2,000 square miles is the largest county in Wales. Much of the terrain is mountainous and largely uninhabited but there are several pockets of population that support local golf clubs.
The bunkerless course at Llandrindod Wells is a real hidden gem, a course where not much has changed since it opened over a century ago. Golf has also been played at the James Braid-designed Welshpool course for over eighty years whilst the beautiful Cradoc course on the northern edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park has only been in use since the late 1960s.
The Brecon & Radnor Golf Union looks after the interests of male golfers in the Powys region and the Mid Wales County Golf Association takes care of golfing requirements for the ladies.
