HOLE 1 - SWAN PITCH

Red Tee 150  Yellow Tee 156  White Tee 156

Opening tee shot requiring an accurate shot to a well protected green. Two bunkers short of the green and a hedge to the back of the green. The green itself is a bit tricky sloping from left to right and there is not a straight putt on it. Happily walk off with a par and move on.

HOLE 2 - Y DDERW

Red Tee 295  Yellow Tee 300  White Tee 305

A real risk and reward par 4. Drivable green for the long hitters with the prevailing wind behind. Wayward shots will find mature trees and long rough. Don’t go too long as there is a steep runoff at the back of the green

HOLE 3 - WEIR

Red Tee 482  Yellow Tee 490  White Tee 525

Dogleg left par 5 requiring an accurate drive to a narrow tree lined fairway. Bigger hitters will struggle to get to the green for two. Disrespect this par 5 at your peril. Approach shot will fire into the largest green on the course over 40yds long leaving some monster puts if you misjudge your approach.

HOLE 5 - NEWTON

Red Tee 146  Yellow Tee 136  White Tee 146

A short but tricky par 3. Small undulating green protected by a deep bunker and a bank to the left. Bail out right and try to get up and down for par, or go for it and risk going in the bunker.

HOLE 6 - MEADOW

Red Tee 375  Yellow Tee 400  White Tee 409

Simple looking par 4, but don’t be lulled into a false sense of security this can be a difficult hole with bunkers and trees waiting for a wayward tee shot. The green is protected by a bunker front left and slopes away towards the back right of the green.

HOLE 7 - USK

Red Tee 353  Yellow Tee 376  White Tee 386

Sweeping round to the right this 386yd par 4 plays longer than its yardage with the prevailing wind right into your face. The drive is essential to scoring on this hole with the River Usk on the right and long rough on the left waiting to catch wayward drives. Undulating green providing some interesting putts

HOLE 8 - CRATER

Red Tee 312  Yellow Tee 368  White Tee 379

Described by many as the best golf hole in Powys we’ll let you decide. Split fairway and a tiny well protected green. Again playing into the prevailing wind a good drive is essential to scoring well. Trees protect both sides of the fairway and the river Usk will catch a big slice. The tiny green is nestled in a crater with bunkers front, left and right waiting to catch an errant shot. Par here is a fine score indeed.

HOLE 9 - PEN Y FAN

Red Tee 428  Yellow Tee 418  White Tee 428

Last hole and the longest par 4 on the course although the wind is generally slightly helping. A dogleg to the right with mature trees lining the fairway. Approach shots are to a well protected green with 4 bunkers just in front of the clubhouse. Keep your nerve whilst putting in front of the gallery on the patio.
