Where to Stay: Bryn Meadows
Bryn Meadows Golf Course
Bryn Meadows opened for play in 1973 and is a picturesque golf course with views that stretch as far as the Brecon Beacons.
Designed by Brian Mayo who famously lost both of his legs after licking his golf ball clean, he still had weed killer picked up from the green he was putting on. Brian consequently formed the British Amputee Golf Association before buying and transforming Bryn Meadows and creating a venue that is always a pleasure and a joy to escape to.
The course favours course management and picking the perfect placement as opposed to brute distance and is one of Wale’s prettiest golf venues.
The course is a very mature layout, and heavily tree-lined golf course and has a par of 71 and is just over 6000 yards. Each hole offers a different challenge from every tee box and no two holes are the same over the 18 championship standard holes on offer.
The Signature Holes
Most would agree that the two signature holes would consist of the excellent 13th, a 227-yard par 3 over water, and the 2nd hole which is a great par 5 measuring 557 yards that requires a third shot over water with no room to miss right.
The Resort of Bryn Meadows has received excellent accolades over the years. Over recent years, it has been nominated for Wales club of the year as well as achieving the Golf Union of Wales Centre of Excellence in 2016.
The clubhouse and bar areas too have not gone unnoticed and have also won prestigious awards.
Bryn Meadows is just outstanding for golf societies. With excellent value golf breaks with one night, Dinner bed and breakfast deals from only £109.00 undoubtedly one to consider when planning a Wales golf holiday.
